Found this today while out and about.
Found a couple interesting items amongst the meh this afternoon:
The 10th year one is American apparel and is ok, the 13th is really well made, but no maker ID at all, just this.
A few random finds from the last week or two.
Tommy Hilfiger - can't find anything like this at all on eBay. The 'flags' are stitched from pieces of ripstop nylon. They are part of the shirt, not appliques (except on the back).
Lotta Jansdotter. A hood that is also a scarf.
Ralph Lauren Golf: 100% cashmere with silk scarf overlay.
1960s (?) REI jacket. Has a lot of flaws; need some repairs. Estate find.
Is Brooks the same as Brooks Brothers? This cabbie hat has issues with the sweatband inside. Nice quality felt.
In this case, Brooks is not Brooks Brothers.
I hate how Apple puts the obnoxious "YEAR" on the back of their WWDC jackets. The front pocket logos are great. But guys... keep it subtle. No way would I ever wear a giant "13" around (especially through the Mission, haha). Basically ensures thousands of jackets are donated rather than worn for years as a cool souvenir.
Gonna be a longass day today
I sympathise brother. Can't wait for lunchtime so I can get out and have a quick 30minute flick through some racks!
Gant NWT wool scarf, Prana lined shirt, Borrelli, OL, no name merino wool coat
Few things for me:
No name madras shirt, no name tie and Holliday & Brown madder
And a couple of things for everyone else:
Cool LP BD shirt:
C&J with trees, uk12
NIB Amazon Echo anyone?
oh shit. I'm sorry to hear about your bathroom. What happened? Plumbing failure or flooding like rain/rivers, etc? Anything covered by insurance?
If its an insurance issue, don't take the insurance company's opinion without confirming it. They must provide a denial of coverage in writing and there are a number of legal hurdles/traps that could snag them.
Not sure who my sender was, but someone from the SF bay area really took my request that I would rather drink than wear my secret santa gift
nice box of Russian River favorites! Thanks sir
I have been slacking severely on my thriftmas box. I will get it out before I go away for Christmas on Sunday though.
Another one? I think Nataku found one, before they were publicly available...
I don't think there was ever an A mint mark. Most either have no mark (Philadelphia prior to 1979) or S, or D. There are a few others.
Here are the mints where coins were made and the corresponding mark.
C – Charlotte, North Carolina (gold coins only 1838-1861)
CC – Carson City, Nevada (1870-1893)
D – Dahlonega, Georgia (gold coins only 1838-1861)
D – Denver, Colorado (1906-present)
O – New Orleans, Louisiana (1838-1861/1879-1909)
P – Philadelphia, Pennsylvania (1793-present)
S – San Francisco, California (1854-present)
W – West Point, New York (1984-present)
Dang, son, nice pulls. I was in there on Tuesday and none of that was there!
