    Thanks guys! The jacket is Corallorosso, probably my favorite SC. Did you take that vacuum out of my living room? [​IMG]

    Ah, didn't think it was much when I found it wasn't fully canvassed. Still has a very pleasing pattern regardless.


    Got one (in white) for $50 at an estate sale. Then a few weeks later found a BNIB shredder accessory kit at a thrift store for $1. :)

    I have one of these pigs. Watch out, it'll suck the poly right off a wood floor.

    Always grab accesories if you see them....they flip nicely. You still have that Green one? I tried to talk my wife into a trade (our kitchen is green) but she likes her gray one since it matches the other small appliances.

    OHSH- for real? What gives it away? I'm quite intrigued.

    The lack of detail in the pattern, the lack of depth in color, the sloppy printing and cartoonish figures, the undetailed font in the lettering....

    Just got home from a two day biz trip and swung by a spot near where I dropped off of my fellow travelers. Nothing too exciting except these in a 32X36. Might be just a tad large. The jury's still out until I get time to take pics of them on me. Selvedge.

    The pics were taken on my cell phone in poor lighting, which may account for the lack of detail/depth you describe. As for the cartoonish figures, they look the same way on the other examples of this scarf I've found online ("Animaux Solaires," 1994/95, by Zoe Pauwels).

    I didn't realize it was an Hermes until I was at the register. Thought it was unbranded. It just felt really nice and had a cool pattern.



    Nice find, Dig. Are you looking for black pants too then? I picked up a pair of black Purple Label cords, 32, the other day if you want them at cost.

    Why do you hate PayPal? I want the pnutpug origin story... :D

    My mom had a bad case of ID theft back in the day; the details are fuzzy; that's all I know.

    Whaaa....REALLY! Imma grab me those big-ass ties next time I see some. They tend to remind me of those mid-90' made for Cinemax 'suspense' movies...



    EDIT: DIG I might WTB those jeans. You don't like stacks, do you? :happy:
