    I'm starting to collect things in these giant jars. So far I have jars of He Man figures, Matchbox cars, and Hermes ties. Hoping to have a whole wall of jar collections eventually.

    ^^^ I made a raisin once! When I was a kid I stuck a grape in the windowsill of the family truck, then forgot all about till a few weeks later. Then it was "oh yeah! My raisin!" And there it was... fully raisined! Did not eat it, although looking back would made a better story if I had... that was prolly in 89 lol. Thx!

    Anyone care to weigh in on this leather (real gator/croc?) and/or brand? Haven't been able to figure out the maker...

    NWT sz. L Pima cotton Tommy Bahama 1/2 zip. Not my thing, but they seem to sell well.

    While Dingman does use exotic skins in many of his belts, I am afraid that this is simply embossed calfskin.

    Some recent finds:

    Bloomingdale's merino wool cardigan vest

    [​IMG]

    Burberry

    [​IMG]

    BB Country Club for me, Cotton/Cashmere blend

    [​IMG]

    POP on Alexander McQueen. Cheap true thrift, too.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Military wool shirt. Would love any input regarding age. Thinking WW2? Has some interesting details, an extra piece of fabric that buttons across the front, and extra fabric that is attached at the opening of the sleeves.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Vietnam War era M65 with liner

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Tumi briefcase with card holder

    [​IMG]

    Traded a bunch of fodder to Buffalo for these. Bloomingdale's made in Italy suede hiking boots, Mark McNairy desert boot, To Boot New York. All of them worn 1-2x tops.

    [​IMG]

    Man cave stuff. Original Buick magazine ads from 1926-27, really well preserved. Kirin Beer dragon logo fan.

    [​IMG]

    Vinyl

    [​IMG]

    Baller Pendleton robe

    [​IMG]

    Would love any input on this regarding authenticity. Took a gamble because it's Visvim, but quality seems underwhelming for a $400+ shirt.
