    That's a no brainer. Even if not my size. But if my size, pm me. :)

    Here is my ideal weather.

    Spring Starts in the middle of January and lasts until July. Then, we have hot weather for a few weeks around the 4th of July, then Fall begins and lasts until the second or so week of December. We have cold weather and some snow for Christmas, then spring begins in January. Is it like that anywhere? 90% Spring and Fall with a little summer and a little winter mixed in?

    I have a lot of kids and a few grandkids (my wife's grandkids, but they are little and call me Papa. I never thought I would be a Grandpa at 42). Would you like to make a deal for this bag for one of the more well behaved kids?

    If you ever find the Brooks Brothers briefcase/bag in Shell Cordovan, you can have your pick of the kids!

    I wouldn't say drastically different, I just sincerely hate that period of winter between January and March. I'd take heat and sunshine over fall any day.

    Here's fall:

    The weather is pretty nice where I grew up in Long island (SPOO Country.) Sure, we always had a hotspell in the summer for a week or so when it went above 90 but generally speaking it was very temperate as we were on the Atlantic. Growing up we did not get air conditioning until I was maybe 10 or so and even then we only used it maybe two or three weeks a year. Here is a list of temps for LI:

    January - 31.9 degrees
    February - 33.4
    March - 41.1
    April - 49.7 F
    May - 59.5 F
    June 68.7
    July - 74.2
    August - 72.8
    September - 65.5
    October - 55
    November - 46.2
    December 36.6

    Now of course the best case scenario was to be a snowbird and head to Florida every January 2nd for three months coming back in early April for the beginning of Spring. Early winter was still okay as you had the Holidays and the snow was still new and fresh. February was always the worst.

    As for where I live now the high in Dallas is nearly 23 degrees hotter in the summer months here in Dallas and we routinely have days above 100 and nights where it barely gets below 80. This morning on my way into work at 6:05 it was a nice 83. And the fact that I thought 83 at 6 am was nice just tells you how long I have lived here now.[​IMG]

    Clean Air? Currently? My mom lives in Idaho and she's been trying not to step outside for the last few weeks because of the permanent smoke-filled air.

    That was largely my thinking as well. Feels a touch risky to invest in.

    Got some discount frames today for two thrifted/e-thrifted items for The Gentleman Cave

    Thrifted Tin Norman Rockwell Interwoven Socks/Golf ad sign. "Interwoven Toe and Heel Socks - A long way to the first hole"
    e-Thrifted Vintage Sulka Envelope.

    The printing of the tin golf sign is a little sloppy, much like my golf game. Wife hates that one, because she thinks the guy looks like he is on the shitter. +1 bonus point, for buying, framing and hanging something that the wife hates.

    @HansderHund those Raybans are gorgeous. I almost sent you a PM but then I remember my Persols are almost indentical to those.


    Okay here's like 3 weeks of finds, maybe? I took vacation at some point so I can't really remember. Starting with least impressive and moving on to most.

    And the most exciting find, atleast to me: NWOT deadstock Dubbleware sanforized cotton chambray, made right here in Boston. I think it's from the late 50's or early 60's.
