    Like Nataku said, it's been drrryyyyyyy lately. Hadn't been out aside from lunch stops in a week or so. Hit up a couple today while christmas shopping and found these. Basically felt like the thriftening after a few weeks of nothing.

    All available.

    Dale of Norway is tagged xl but looks like it would fit m or l. Do they usually run small? It appears to be unworn/unwashed and seems like it's men's.

    dale could be wimmenz or kids. the ones i've seen do not run small in the least - in fact, they're drop shoulder so they tend to run fairly big. dig that rlpl.

    well, here's the oldest thing i've ever thrifted:

    [​IMG]
    "The Falls of Niagara" aquatint etching. Ackermann & Co. London 1857.

    At first i thought there was significant fading of the falls in the far middle ground (and there is some) but i think it's more a quirk of the composition. This is actually in decent shape.

    Better pictures of the shoes I posted earlier. Cross posted from the nail pattern/ label thread. Any ideas? Thanks!

    --
    These shoes are clearly well made. Built like a tank. The logo is faded, though, and all I can make out is 'Fatte a Mano' on the top line and 'Made in Italy' on the bottom line. Does the nail pattern ring a bell?

    I found 10+ NWOT shirts custom made for Scott Pelley by Sanford Bryant (unfamiliar, but the shirts were really well made so I thought I'd give it a go)

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scott_Pelley

    Could only pick up three of them for personal use because they were all decorated with his name. I know it's been brought up before, but I find the name embroidery to be really superfluous. Additionally, are french cuffs ever gonna' make a come-back? They're slowly growing in my closet for the rare occasion that I feel like a suit is improved by Aquaman cuffs.
