dice...you are obsessed with that stealth stitching lol
sometimes you gotta say something too real to be heard. so you say it stealthily.
Slow clap swb. That ought to help w the student loans. And it couldn't have happened to a nicer guy. Good for you bro.
I did with a pair of Canali that had major piss stain. I soaked the spot with major Oxi clean and after a few days of it, the spot was clean so i said fuck it and used cold water and did a short wash and spin dry. Hung it on the line for a day to dry. The results weren't bad.
Holy fuck! Who died!?
Gents, I don't want to come across like a curmudgeon, but could we please use the spoiler tag a bit more often?
I think so. I'll check.
Which one of us will be blessed by the "Thriftening 2015" today?
@Takai - he's been sending me some crazy links. :Hermes,Neighborhood,Lost worlds,etc. just a click away.
It could not happen to a better guy. That would be awesome!
How about several of us? But, I don't think another haul like SWB's is going to come around anytime soon.
I had a few fun finds at the bargain Auction last night.
By the way, any of those Oxxford 50L, @barrelntrigger
That is an incredible story! I didn't know you were a semi full time poker player! Considering your current occupation, I would say you are still involved in gambling! That's one of the things about this hobby/business it still involves a pretty significant gambling element.
Here's my gambling story. Back I the summer of 1998, when Sosa and McGwire were trying to break the home run record my poker buddies and I decided to go to the Casinos in St. Louis and go see a St. Louis Cardinals game. We got there one Friday night. I was just getting ready to go back to school and my budget was pretty tight. I had $50 to gamble. We decided to play Carribean stud. I lasted a couple of hours and was out. My buddies were still going. I decided to get $40 from the ATM and try my hand at the 50 cent slot. I was just staying even for quite a while. Then, I hit a jackpot for $900. I was so excited that was a lot of money to me when I was going to school and barely getting by. I put $850 in my pocket and thought I would try again. I played the same machine and hit $1800! I was out of my mind excited at this point and decided to try the high limit slots. This was about 2:00 am. By 3 am, I hit $2500 on the $2 machine. I decided to quit and go to bed because the Cardinals game was early. I went back to the room and laid down and I couldn't sleep at all! I was so fired up I could just feel and hear the sounds the slots running through my head. So, I got back up and went back to the high limits.
By 6:00 am I was up $6000. We were supposed to go to breakfast at 7:00, so I went back to the room. Later that morning, we were at the game and McGwire and Sosa were battling it out to see if anyone would break Maris's record. I was so worn out after a night of adrenalin that I couldn't stay awake during the game and ended up falling asleep over and over during the game.
I did end up taking home about $5900.
Speaking of gambling.. I rolled the dice on this Celine Mini Luggage Tote last night.
Paid up for it, but I was planning to give it as a gift to the bae IF it checks out (and after getting it restored).
