    I had these and the previous and subsequent versions when I played tennis in high school. I was a huge McEnroe fan.

    not even a good troll, either. what is this generation coming to? come back when you suck less, then we'll berate you with the kind of taunting worthy of better trolls. until then, kindly jump into a tire fire.

    ^^^ It's true, there is a lot of good stuff going on in the second-hand scene up here. My wife and I made friends with a couple of guys who own a vintage store and they've been inviting us to go with them to the weekend, monthly, & quarterly markets around different parts of MA. I'm personally looking forward to going to Brimfield in May.

    ^^^ That's the kind of info. I'm talkin' 'bout! [​IMG]

    ^^^ Great haul! More RLPLs in one fell swoop than I find in a month! Are either of these available? Sizes on these?

    FINALLY got around to cleaning up those vintage Alden for BB black shell cordovan cap toes 10 E from a week ago. Another member dibs-ed them so NOT AVAILABLE at this time.

    ^ I think that from the font used in the lower right hand picture, they are from before BB started to brand everything "Peal & Co." But that's pure speculation on my part.

    Super rare midcentury modern furniture in mint condition purchased for a pittance? Are you sure you aren't Frenchy?

    I've had a Beomaster 2000 in the trunk of my car for the last year with the hope of getting it up and running again. The thing feels like it is made of lead, did they charge by the pound or something? Even the remote feels like a brick.

    I don't suppose any of those RLPL are a smaller size? I've also got a pair of those camp mocs, been beating the shit out of them for the past few months, they hold up really nice.

    Woah, that is very awesome.


    In other news, does anybody ever find size 12 shoes at thrifts? Every store I go to seems to only go to 11, which is fine or Spinal Tap but not for footwear options.

    Yeah, the ;) at the end... ;)

    More interesting to me is the lack of interest new members showed - didn't look like anyone even did a search!

    Where do you find this stuff? Estate sales? Thrift stores around here never have good furniture.

    EDIT: Nevermind... answered above

    If you want I'll proxy... Tell me your measurement ranges and if they're in that range I'll pick 'em up. They're not boring staple colors though.

    I constantly find shoes sizes 12-14, mostly wingtips.
