Oh man, I'd love that stop... For the record though, I don't really wear boots except for skiing and snowshoeing.
I really hope you ski and/or snowshoe in a Hawaiian shirt, though.
Fuck it... I used the women's restroom in WalMart today. Dude was taking too long to clean the men's room. I figured that some old lady would scream at me or I would be nominated for an ESPY award. Either way... never eat Chipotle and then go grocery shopping.
1) Anyone point me to a Ben Silver button tutorial? @TheNeedMachine ?
2) What's that fancy fabric that Palm Beach invented and made some stuff out of? isn't Bataya Weave is it?
Palm Beach cloth?
Congrats @Nataku , awesome haul! I spent the summer in Alaska and didn't get to thrift for a few months and then school started so I haven't gotten out much lately, but a few recent finds.
And a huge shoutout to @Ds13 for the birthday gifts! It was fun getting together for a few beers!

These weren't thifted by me, but they were all thrifted by my roommate. All griswold except one skillet is a lodge. #3,#6,#7,#8 (with a lid), #10, and he also has a #5 laying around somewhere.
I plan to. It's been far too long since I've been skiing. I did wear one in sub-zero weather in Minnesota a few years ago.
They're remarkably warm. I stole one from the costumes I was supposed to be watching on a set in the woods a while ago and wore it under my OCBD, shetland, and jacket for warmth... forgot I had it on and went to bed when I got home, which meant I was woken up by my girlfriend asking "what the f*** are you wearing?" the next morning.
Hold the phone. It's velvet, not corduroy.
I amend as follows: stick exclusively with gray flannel. For ties I'd stick with solid colors, though I've been known to break that rulers than once with glen plaid wool ties (worsted not tweed) and velvet, to very dismal reviews.
You can do silks pretty easily, including wet texture. In fact it might be better. But a cashmere tie (charcoal for example with a powder blue shirt) could work very well too, just be careful of not going too fuzzy on the tie and looking like a cotton ball.
Sorry for my confusion before.
Edit: I must have somehow skipped the bottom of the previous page. Nat: congrats. That's the kind of day we all dream of someday having.
I don't know of one. So:
If you find them on a cheap blazer from GW, and they're not all beat / chipped up, buy it and harvest the buttons.
If you see them marked 1/20 14K GF, 14K, or .975, buy them.
The classic designs (fleur de lis, South Carolina palms, dogs, etc) sell - if cheap, consider buying them.
If no longer made, and cheap, consider buying them.
Ivy league (Harvard, Yale etc), and cheap, consider buying them.
The gold-filled (retail $700), sterling (retail $475), and 14k gold (retail about $4k) of course being the no-brainer buys
Is that what it's called?
According to ebay I might have found a thing. Hurray!
