    Anyone have experience selling F.M. Allen? I've got two pretty awesome linen SCs made in Italy, unlined and unstructured that were too cheap to pass but I can't find eBay data...

    FM Allen was a small J Petey-esque store located in downtown Franklin that closed down about 5-6 years ago? I've got a couple cool shirts from them.

    I'm 11.5 too.

    One find today. Get at me, small dudes. 100% cotton but I would have bet it was linen before I checked the tag.

    Guys, did you know that Randy Quaid made a sex tape?

    More on this story, as well as the Polo and Yu Gi Oh sheets I found, when we return in two days...

    Made the ten stop route today and she was pretty damn good. This is the best stuff.

    (Basically everything minus some boss suits and other fodder)

    Both polo pieces are lambswool and awesome. One on the right needs a de-pilling.

    Pretty sure this Big Mac is mid 60s or so?

    If it makes you feel better, I realized after I finished half of it, I'd over done it. Ha. Im using it to seal an edge on double thick denim. Let me tell you this, punching a needle through 4 8 layers of stacked 14oz denim is not fun. Hopefully should have v2 of my phone case done tomorrow though.

    Some serious win in that post...

    Current season Patagonia stuff will have an FA15 at the end of the style number. Older Retro-X's do better on The Bay than the newer ones, especially the crazy colorways.

    @Nataku I didnt thrift this but a friend of mine did. It smells like the right North Face to me but I don't know anything about it. Any significance to that logo on the chest?
