A bit off-topic, but I thought more seasoned posters might have a solution:

I've been searching high and low for a replacement belt to my old Aquascutum coat - it's 100% blue wool, and the belt got lost somehow.

Any ideas on sources for this?
It’s not an ideal solution, but I’ve done it for robes: shorten the hem a bit and use that to make a belt. It wouldn’t need to be the width of the original necessarily, if you were uneasy about shortening it too much.

Mini thriftening here.

all n/a as I might keep them all.

estate sale, guy must have had 200 pocket squares and well over 100 ties. Unfortunately nothing else of value but at 4 bucks a piece, I was very happy with what I got.

The Zegna Sport technical jacket showed up just in time yesterday for the crappy weather ahead this week.
the Bose someone left at the testing station because the cord wasnt pushed fully into the unit and he must have thought it was done.

I picked up an olive London Fog trench coat the other day for an upcoming project and didn't notice the belt was missing until after I had gotten it home. So frustrating! At least I learned my lesson. I'm usually pretty vigilant and about looking for moth holes, etc. but the presence or absence of the belt didn't occur to me at all.

JUST A REMINDER...

that the 9th Annual Gift Exchange will begin next month! [Cue someone ignoring this sentence and immediately saying "Gift exchange?! It's only September." Yeah, asshole, I get it, but it's the same timeline. Every. Single. Year.]

THIS IS NOT A SIGNUP, but a reminder to newer guys that would like to join that you need a minimum of 100 posts to join, no exceptions. Posts can be anywhere on SF, not limited to the Thrift Thread, so if you're interested in joining and don't yet have the requisite posts, you have a month to get posting!

Registration will be announced mid-October and will be open for 2 weeks. Names will be drawn ca. November 1st, after which you will have 1 full month to shop. Gifts will need to be sent by December 1st.

If you're going to be away from ca. 16-31. October and unable to sign up, let me know!
All set on my end... :fonz:

Geesevine.
Winner! Almost all Gs are hard Gs as in "go," Ws get a short v sound, ei/ie combinations are long vowels (always the second vowel sound).

Giesswein = G like go, ie = like seem, ss = s, w = very, ei = time, n
