    No. If there's actual fabric damage, I'd say pass, but if just buttons and lining, and the price was right, I'd kop.

    Anyone familiar with TenState Denim? I picked up some non-distressed selvedge ‘Aubrey’ jeans of very high quality, thinking that I’d try taking them to a consignment (I haven’t tried this before), but alas it didn’t happen this weekend. Just wondering if I should take them back or try to sell (along with some other stuff that I’ve been meaning to move). Sorry I don’t have pics - still haven’t figured out how to post on this forum. Not for lack of trying tho. The only info I could find on them:

    I have always thought he was a very handsome powerful looking man with great presence! Ha! Just kidding. He does appear to wear some very nice CM suits. I did not know we were similar size. I bet his stuff is very nice! Maybe i should look into getting some of his stuff.

    I have an Oxxford Suit that is my favorite suit I own that was Senator Jay Rockefeller's. He is apparently a BIG man. I had to have the waist taken in and the pants shortened, but the jacket fits me very well.

    Really? Which quote did they cite? And did they use proper citation format? I prefer the Bluebook, but that's just because I'm a lawyer.

    Oh, you meant sighting. There was a Spoo sighting in Japan.

    May bad homie.

    Only finds today were personal clothing that fit me, nothing worth flipping or exciting.

    My advice... release (and then thoroughly wash your hands with scalding hot water)

    That's an awesome story. Very nice of you for doing that. On a slight thread drift, one of my vehicles is an old F150 with a 4.9l. Love the truck, it used to be the farm truck for running back and forth to Lowe's, but little things have gone wrong with it and being the cheap bastard that I am, I always go to pick and pulls for spares. If you like tinkering with your vehicles and you don't hit the pick and pull or pick a part yards, you're missing out. It's a great way to release stress. Though I usually wear Asolo instead of shell when going there. LOL.

    Yeah i wish i knew more about how to work on cars and motorcycles. I think it'd be fun to tinker with stuff. Like, I'd love to learn to strip engines and transmissions and rebuilds them etc...

    Youtube is a great resource for learning to do at least low- and medium-complexity stuff.
