1. Welcome to the new Styleforum!

    We are currently fine-tuning the forum for your browsing pleasure, so bear with any lingering dust as we work to make Styleforum even more awesome than it was. I'd like to keep you abreast of the improvements we've made over the past few days.
    @notification emails have been added, in response to user requests

    Attached images are now Full Size by default

    Users are now all allowed three (3) links in their signature files,

    SSL certification is now in place so you can all browse securely.

    The server has been reconfigured so that site speeds will improve.

    Notice: Right now the site is slow because we are fixing all the images from the past 4 months. Many of you noticed that these were missing, and we are fixing that problem now. Unfortunately, it is taking up a lot of resources and causing the site to be slow.

    Oh, and don’t forget to head over to the Styleforum Journal, because we’re giving away two pairs of Carmina shoes to celebrate our move!

    Please address any questions about using the new forum to support@styleforum.net

    Cheers,

    The Styleforum Team

    I've thrifted that exact brown suede bag before, and seen it a second time at a BE. Zero tags both times but solidly made, would love to know who by

    Yeah I didn't feel like you were disparaging non-profits or anything. Just realized that my comment wasn't super relevant, which is why I deleted it :)

    I don't have them on hand anymore but they remind me of the Bernard Zins tags.

    I have the same one, too. Marlboro tag inside like Hoofit's. Very well constructed bag.

    Someone was mentioning collecting Marlboro Adventure stuff a page or so ago. I've got the Fuji folding bike that Marlboro had. Also reversible Marlboro jacket. All thrifted (I don't smoke).

    @txwoodworker holy balls...

    Edit; I'm thinking of doing a blog post comparing the differences in construction and material of English, Italian & USA RLPL pieces. Is this something that you guys would be interested in reading?

    Thanks!

    Didn't mean the bags were fodder, they were just not at the one stop. The fodder is not pictured.

    I haven't had a haul like that in about 3 years, and the last time I did, it was at the same store.

    I like how everyone is like I would pay off my house, start a business, invest some and all us Toronto peeps are quiet. 650 would get me a modest place, 90 minutes or probably even longer away from Toronto in rush hour.

    And as bad as we got it, the NY guys could maybe get the closet in someones condo for 650 lol

    650k?

    Last year i missed out on buying an old car dealership. it had a 2 level, 4 bedroom house above the old office space and a 3 car workshop with room for 2 lifts. a rooftop BBQ area, and 8? small rooms/ 5 bathrooms for guests. place was no joke.
    and only 30 mins from Tokyo. [​IMG]

    - for 150k usd.

    yeah, i'd buy that. fix it up for another 100k.

    then think about what i would do with the 400k

    perhaps franchise my current business. leave it to other people. then get in my car,and go Thrifting.
    searching for the cool stuff. mailing cars back to my wife. [​IMG]

    -posting the adventures in here.

    I am Stateside but split my time between Tokyo and Kyushu when over there; wife's office is in Roppongi Hills and family are in Fukuoka and points south. Only thrifting I've done in JPN is in the neighborhood between Omotesando and Harajuku (Omohara!) and I noticed that what they stock is not in my size. They really like things with native american touches and a Route 66 sensibility from what I gather. When I'm back let's meet up at the rooftop beer garden on the top of Tokyu Plaza - oh wait that's a Starbucks now. Maybe a better idea since Roppongi proper could get out of control.
