    Scabal diamond fabric. Couldn't give it away.... Still have it sitting in the closet. :(


    Rhodesian camo is really desirable! I've never seen it in person. I've also never seen one like that. Appears to be a period-correct US made piece. Really cool find!

    Thrifting has been real slow last few weeks but came home to an amazing package:

    A huge shout out to RHZ5001 for working with me on a trade that allowed me to get a grail item for personal use. I could not be happier.

    That is a really neat find. Rhodesian camo is much harder to find that, say ERDL camo, which in itself is pretty scarce. Rhodesian stuff was scarce to begin with. I believe that pattern is called"Rhodesian brush stroke camo". Here's some photos of that jacket in action. Magazine dated Aug. 1980, which should help you pinpoint a date for that piece. Sorry for the crappy photos. Lighting isn't the best.

    Probly not the ideal thread for this, but what is a good price to pay for a 2 pc Canali suit you plan on turning for a profit?

    You're correct, this is not the thread for this question, which is very vague to begin with. Anyway, just look at ebay sold listings for a similar suit (label/pattern) to get a sense of the price it'll sell for.

    Love that. Would totally wear in the winter. Coolest camo I've seen, next to German flecktarn and Swedish M90 camo, which is borderline modern art
