    New guys get shit on for asking because they're new guys and have yet to contribute anything. @impuntura has been around for a long time. Who's the go to for MCM furniture questions? You can't be versed in everything to be found in a thrift store. There are guys on here that have forgotten more about sneakers than I'll ever know or care to know. It's a give and take, and I don't mind the questions from someone who gives back knowledge.

    I'm strangely proud that you still have/wear those.

    Really far. About half way across the country. Of course, there's a lot to see between here and there.

    For a moment I thought you were trying out the Barbie feet pose.

    Nice looking jacket! I have a pair of PRL linen pants in that blue. I wear them once per summer.

    Bought this of the Swedish online auction site Tradera. Cost 68kr aprox. 7,5 dollars. First time I have ever seen an Eidos item so would like to know if it indeed is a real Lupo I have bought?
    Also, Brioni elephant belt for 10 dollars... drag me backwards as we would say in Sweden.
