    I'm down for some loafers. Are you at NR? Ours has had a ton of Red Wings come through as well, which seems weird. Had to have seen 10 pairs of Iron Rangers when I was there a couple months ago.

    If someone with knowledge on the shoes could weigh in that would be great, took a stab in the dark while I'm still trying to figure out what to look for. The Reeboks might not be anything, just had a cool look to them. The labeling on the nikes looked older but the shoes had very minimal wear.

    Not quite thrifting, but packing and cleaning up to move tomorrow. Finding gifts from the past.

    OK... I'll sell my Jesus sandals.. And

    I'd listed this in our old small town for $80 last time we moved with no takers.

    I think I'll ask a lot more this time. And more I'm still figuring out.

    I'm guessing Vicuna/$$$ - think that was the guy/family that owns/owned Security Dodge.


    I'd be buying it at $40.

    @AlexJ1100 Sorry man, the Nikes you picked up are just a basic Air Force One model, not worth much at all.

    @SteelGuy: ALPS sandals!! I haven't seen a pair of those in ages. REI still carried them when I worked there. I come across their sweater occasionally.

    Yep ... I bought them one summer during school when I interned in Tennessee to go rafting on the Nantahala and hiking in the Smokies. My friends immediately called them "Jesus sandals".

    Cheers fellas. What's the name of the recommended reweaver again? Fits me pretty well so I'd like to see if I can get it fixed up

    I've used Fabric Reweavers USA in Miami and was happy with their work. However, I had them work on cuts/holes on regular wool, and not moth holes/low spots, so no idea how that might turn out. Their minimum charge is $85 for one hole repair, which includes return shipping.
    There's another company also recommend on this forum but the name escapes me and I haven't used them.

    Mildly interesting story on the polo cap... An older dude who I've seen at the store a few times grabbed it literally ~5 seconds before I got to the rack. He saw me admiring it as he was walking away - then turned around and tossed it to me saying it was a good deal for PRL.

    That being said it unfortunately does not fit my head right, which is a bummer because I love it. The J.L. Powell jacket I scored is dope but waaay too big on me. Let me know if anyone's interested, otherwise it'll be on the bay.

    Exactly. Just a bit too shallow for it to look right on me
