    Hopefully these are worth something, but the reality is I probably just bought ugly old office chairs that I can give back to goodwill :embar: Don't know anything about this stuff, but valium inspired me, so took a gamble.

    One is definitely a little dirty and worn. May need to commission grendel to restore them.

    The Lobbs were $45. The Bontonis were $35. Please excuse the quick crappy iphone photos: they are beautiful. My heart stopped when I saw them.

    At 11-1/2 US, they are just a size or half size too big for me. Up soon on ebay or the buying / selling thread after a quick workout with my new saphir products.

    Sorry man, Chromcraft is (generally) made in China, and (always) not that great as far as quality is concerned. They each cost probably ~$200 new.

    Nice first finds! I'd say probably leave the CT shirts if they don't fit you, but the others should do well.
