    Good stuff, Typhoid. That's pretty damn close to my ideal spring/fall outfit.

    Oh, hey, there it is. Very cool! I don't believe I've ever seen one in a thrift, only at surplus stores, and maybe on eBay.


    IN OTHER NEWS, if any of you THREAD HOMIES can rock a SIZE 11.5 SHOE, please get at me. I've got a very sleek bad-ass pair of Florsheim Royal Imperial something or anothers to mail out; the uppers are in great, supple condition (they kind of look like Park Aves, but sleeker), but there's a hole in each sole. They'll need a topy, at least. Anyway, if anyone wants them for cost of shipping, PM me. (Just please be a thread homie. I get slightly weirded out when people with a zero post count surface for these kind of things :laugh: ).

    To whoever posted those loafers (too lazy to quote): yes, those are gucci, they are old, and they are real.

    I don't think tucked-in is a "look." It's just wearing clothes.

    I feel ya man, I am 225 right now too. It fucking sucks. Gotta lose 45 before I am comfortable. Even worse...I am going on a cruise in 4 weeks. The buffets are going to add 10 pounds. Guess it will be t-shirts in the pool. lol [​IMG]

    strange days today...so i have been thrifting for about ten years now and i have never EVER seen anything by Olivetti.today i find two items two hours apart and totally apart sections of town.
    first a rare vintage Olivetti office chair for tewnty bucks (check out the serial number #515) full leather and chrome.and then the big one,a super collectible Olivetti typewriter (Dora) complete with case.
    these go from 400-600 guys the Valentine being the most expensive one.if you ever find these in red,blue,orange or yellow pick them up,its money in the bank (also for $20) i think the all white one is the most expensive one.speaking of all white,this was basically the Macbook of its generation,if you had one of these you were the shit.
    also picked up a mic for a buck,the Turner THREE PLUS in mint condition,these go up to a hundred bucks.
    my point is igents that theer is a lot of money in thrifts otehr then clothes,you just gotta look (and have some luck)
