    Haha, I was going to bid the everliving fuck out of that HF jacket...until I realized it (like everything else great in the world) is too short for me [​IMG]. Nice get man.

    EDIT: Oops, GH jacket. Whatever that pure sex goodness is.

    Oops, the lower shoes in merlot/brown are actually Johnston Murphy Aristocrafts I also found today, fine shoes in fine condition, but didn't think post-worthy. Sorry about the mix-up. They're also available if anyone is interested.

    Thanks, dude. Still feel guilty (and am definitely questioning whether I really can quit). But when I saw it still at $20 with 1 min left, there was no WAY I was letting it go without a shot. Stunned hardly approximates my emotions when it ended with me on top. At $23.


    SPOO!! WHY ARE YOU SHOUTING!!! WE'RE RIGHT HERE, MAN!

    Picks from today, all for me:

    2 Nordys shirts for casual wear
    RL OCBD
    Holland & Sherry Bespoke
    AE MacNeils

    Really tough to find decent shoes in this area, and picking up AE's in nice condition in very close to my size seems like a good day. Saphir conditioning them now. Pics to come soon.

    Now I have to do a thrift fit pic with all personally thrifted items.

    Also I can proxy for anyone with huge balls that fits a 16 32. Nordys house brand (I know but it's awesome).

    Also, that thing seems pretty trad (unless I'm mistaken as to what that means). Which leads me to ask: Sir, is there nothing you can't rock?

    Yeah, at my Marshall's they go for ... wait, sorry, what's that? Huh. Strange. I'm being told no such thing has ever been seen at a Marshall's near me.

    Weird. Must be an error of some kind.

    +1 on top of all the others, and not just because it came from me. Way to rock that thing, man.

    I actually had a really good day at the thrifts/discounts today and was going to post pics. But after seeing all you west coasters' finds, I've decided, Fuck that, I'll wait 'till tomorrow. Or maybe until DM7's coursework picks back up.

    BOOM! Sold these bad boys in less than 24 hours of listing them. Just threw them up on craigslist as "vintage mid century inspired" :rotflmao: :rotflmao: :rotflmao:

    Cleared a cool $50 and the best part is I didn't have to deal with paypal!

    Good deal, then. One other thing that I forgot to mention: Chick bicycles, generally, aren't worth much of anything, but someone will give you what you paid on CL, I suspect.
