    I finally found some cool (to me) vintage t-shirts. Clearly, these are all from one donor.

    The funny thing is, I did one of these races; and I think my dad did three or four of them.


    Presidio 10

    Ah, the ESL Runaway... This brings back memories. My dad did this race, and I did it too, after it became the Tandy Up And Running 10K (vintage cool for a South Bay Area runner). Also, anyone remember the ESL shootings? http://abc7news.com/archive/8743901/

    1982 ESL Runaway

    This is probably my favorite art for a race t-shirt...
    1983 Santa Clara Police 10k Pursuit

    [​IMG]


    Sunnyvale Baylands 5l/10k. This was one of my first 10k's, back in the mid/late 80s (I think I ran it in 1987, though I'm not sure what year this shirt was from).

    [​IMG]

    This is my personal favorite. The Mercury News Run was a staple of Bay Area distance running for many years. I ran the final one, in 2006.

    1985 San Jose Mercury News 10k

    [​IMG]

    1986 San Jose Mercury News 10k

    [​IMG]

    Spartan Breakaway 10K (not sure what year(s) this was run, though I found a reference on Athlinks.com for a race run in 1987)

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    1988 San Jose Mercury News 10k (I was supposed to run this one, I was signed up, then my parents decided that as punishment for something I wasn't allowed to leave the house -the joys of being 11...)

    probably not a great property, but i like the fabric color and down-home graphic. for me...

    the converse/spartans ringer you copped is especially sweet! converse is not the first association i make with distance running

    I'm pretty sure I did that race at some point too... The Palo Alto Baylands are still one of my favorite places to run.


    Converse was huge in the running scene back in the day. I was always a Saucony kid (and I still wear Saucony), but I can recall plenty of others running in Converse shoes back then.

    I don't get it. APCs stretch a bit (or a bunch) by my 31s were sized accurately. (I know because I wear a 32 and they made my face looked like this: :embar: )



    Yeah, here's what I mean. A worn pair or raw jannz will be stretched quite a bit; a new pair will be necessarily tighter.



    lol guy who obviously lives in Canada, what with your eh's and your health care and your fresh produce and whatnot



    Someone put me on ignore once after I said William Gibson had a tin ear and a clunky prose style. :foo:



    :slayer::slayer::slayer:

    Fuck yes! Related: I just recovered the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man from my attic.

    Posted Earlier about an estate sale. I ended up not getting anything at the estate sale. But, there was a Small Church Run thrift store down the street.

    They were having a big sale 50% off one item

    Men's shirts $1

    Boutique items (in this case, it just meant in the display cabinet) were half off and there were some other discounts.


    Anyway, here are the finds:

    Let's Start with Shirts because they were on sale for $1


    You have to love Viyella Shirts (especially for $1)

    A nice Sir Pendleton

    Here's a nice find for $1

    One guy donated a lot of Brooks Brothers. Unfortunately there was quite a few orphans. I skipped those and just got the SCs and Blazers. I also LOVE getting the Brooks Brothers Hangers with them!

    BB 1818 (46R)

    This one can't be just wool. Unless its the nicest wool ever. It was very soft and smooth MUCH smoother than just wool.

    [​IMG]

    This was interesting. Who makes stuff for BB when it is made in Italy?

    [​IMG]

    The tag wasn't very helpful:

    Another VERY nice Bb Blazer 46R

    Alligator Belt my size (hooray!)

    Interesting Belt. Ever heard of Bombay Snake? Size 38

    On to Ties. Mostly fodder

    A Fun Nautical Themed Nautica tie that looks like something I would have worn in the 1990's!

    [​IMG]

    Talbott US Open tie (is this a thing?)

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Vintage Gucci!

    Strictly BB Fodder

    An old GOP republican Lapel Pin/ Tie Tack for me.

    [​IMG]

    Here's an interesting tie bar. I think this is real Gator/Croc. I am not sure what the significance of the Fleur-de-lys

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I don't usually look at pants. But, i was hoping to reunite the orphans. After wading through the Perry Ellis and Dockers, I saw these.

    Anyone know anything about Pitti shoes? The labels are Pitti Firenze (made in Italy). Looks like nice shoes.

    From the You Find the Darnedest Things in Zanellas! files:

    Dude's bank withdrawal slip. Bank account number handwritten in boxes. Bank name and address stamped on the side. Dude's full name magic marker-ed on the pockets. :facepalm:

    The slip, however, was torn in half, making it completely un-readable.

    (I mean, Jesus Whiz, man. Had to tear it up and properly dispose of it for him...)

    Sorry I don't. But your ask reminds me to ask the same question with the word "Beltrami" in place of "Pitti".

    I'm sure there's enough DNA in those pants to identify him anyway.

    I didn't have a lot of luck at the thrift stores today, but did a bit better at the discount stores. Will post more pictures tomorrow, but these were two of my favorites:

    I liked this one a lot as I was walking up to the ties. I was a bit surprised when I looked at the maker...
