    Ever go to like 10 stores in a day and pretty much completely strike out?

    Bought this because it was cheap and I was sick of not buying things

    Has anybody ever used the "method" on a Burberry trench? I just picked up a vintage Mac for myself but it's got some yellowing at the collar and I'm afraid an oxy bath might result in the nova check bleeding into the coat.

    XL. I could proxy for $35, but fit pics would be required.

    What do you call these and is it a bad thing that they have been released at one end? I have seen similar pieces of fabric connected to vents, but these seem like they originally extended towards the front of the sport coat. From a Paul Stuart (Samuelsohn) sport coat.

    Has anyone built a shoe rack/organizer?
    I need something for a skinny hall closet and was curious if there were any plans, tips, or advice.

    That's been me all week. Wishing I were back in LA right about now. On that note, I did, however, manage to get some non-ipotato photos of the Visvim goodies that I thrifted in LA a few weeks ago.

    Also grabbed a NWOT pair of these jeans as well.

    The shelves are not as bowed as they appear in the pic, and don't worry, they are well supported.

    I recommend making the shelves adjustable.

    Good stuff! Camp 7 is one of the few vintage outdoors brands I've yet to encounter. I have vest from most of the others... I'd ask if this was available, but I think I'm good with four down vests in my personal collection. I might have a problem. [​IMG]

    I went to a storage auction, not to bid, but because I know the folks who buy lockers are idiot's sometimes. They throw clothes away mostly and I can confirm a painting that sold for 75 grand came from the same place these clothes would have went. I went to make connections with some locker buyers to insure i get the clothes and this was my first result. It seem's this was a Naval Aviators locker.

    These guys paid 150$ for a room full of newspapers in milk crates, furniture that smelled like pee and these clothes. I shit you not, they said "give me a buck and take all you can grab" but Im knowing they get a lot of sacks like this so I buttered em up real well, I should get a call. This flight suit prob one of the most valuable items in the damn unit lol. not to mention a big ass couch is a pain in the ass to store.

    This is older than it looks, prob vietnam era olive drab.
