    Thanks Tony. I was about to hunt Man of Lint down for some advice. I wondered about gluing it. Superglue sounds good to me.

    TheWGP willl appreciate the new model (ie, thick) Oxxford hanger I picked up for $.69 today. It's a shop that rarely sells suit hangers, but there it was--priced and ready to go. I was very happy about it as I left. Then I wondered where the suit that came on it is...

    I also found a couple of RLPL casual shirts, a Lacoste polo and an LL Bean henley type shirt (the Bean is for me).

    Another cool little item was a framed repro print (I assume it's repro) of an old engraving of Napoli. It had the sticker of a Naples art and frame shop on it. A donated old souvenir, I figure. Since it's of Napoli, I thought it might be nice as a closet decoration, plus I like old engravings.

    it's been a while. I moved so i haven't been doing any heavy thrifting in the past month. however i got this zegna cashmire/wool db overcoat $20 I might not have picked it up for a flip but it fits me well. a pair of ferragamo loafers size 11d to add to my other 6 pairs of size 11 shoes that i couldn't pass up. if someone wants to trade me for a 12d i would love it. a few shirts including this bb polo which i really like.

    ok... let me know if anybody would be interested in this but: i have like, 250-300 items i will be trying to get rid of here in the coming months (30-40 pairs of shoes, 30ish suits, 20-30 coats, 45-50 sportcoats, probably 75-100 ties, 30ish pairs of pants), basically a ton of stuff that I have been picking up. i'm pretty good with ebay, so I was thinking if anybody has stuff they would want to trade me, i could post up a big list and we could work some trades out but with the understanding that anything i'm gonna trade for i'm going to ebay. ultimately, this would result in people here getting stuff that fits them, and i do the hard work of selling the stuff they picked up that doesn't fit them.

    if anybody would be interested in this post up and let me know and i will start making a list of items, which will take a while in and of itself.

    Pretty poor weekend thrifting, and post halloween has revealed slim pickings.

    Valentino Suit 56, beautiful fashion suit, in absolutely terrible condition. Huge hole on sleeve, I will try fix, if not, it goes straight to the bin.

    Stone Island Sweater, No tags, Possibly M / L. I love this sweater style, very 1990's. I used to wear this stuff all the time.

    Faconnable pants, W40 L32. Not a bad score, in near new condition, and quite good quality. Faconnable are under rated, this is no worse than a lot of department store stuff.

    Barbera pants, SZ 52, W37, L31

    Zegna Pants, soft, very poor condition. Bought for mowing yard

    Ralph Lauren Polo, W40, NWT. A pair of $60 outlet pants for under $6, should not complain. To be honest, I bought for me but hate them once they are on, but hope someone does like them or this style of pleated chinos.

    Nothing for me today, but noticed a lot of empty racks that will hopefully soon be full of treasures. Passed on a Samuelsohn sportcoat that was a little rough and a pair of vintage Randolph Engineering sunglasses (looked pretty small + $14.99 price tag = no sale).

    Tell you what I did C 1 day:

    I was working for a real estate office when we did an brokers' open house and, lo & behold, there was a 4 REAL Gustav Stickley kitchen table w/sloppy dripping paint cans really screwing it up. Of course my broker refused my request to speak 2 the owner @ it. My guess is the owner probably chopped up the matching chairs that were taking up 2 much room and used them for kindling. Makes perfect sense, no?

    Ah, those were the daze Hahaha!
