    I've seen those teeny Lotuses (Loti?) - I think it's the Elise model...no idea, but not as impressive as it ought to be. And yeah you see them in the most normal places - Target, thrift, cheapo dry cleaners, Home Depot etc.

    im not easily impressed but yesterday i was on a patio watching the euro game.
    a guy pulled up in a RR Phantom with the suicide doors.my volvo was parked beside it and i swear you could fit my whole car into that cabin with the doors open,like holy shit man.
    really hot wife too...sigh,one day only 1000000 teak chairs to go.

    I've heard that the ride is rough enough to make you physically ill. Definitely not designed for a leisurely drive.

    Speaking of teak chairs - that Danish / MCM etc stuff you pull in - absolutely insane! My bone(r) is for Heywood-Wakefield (dog bone chairs, wishbone table etc)...stupid me didn't realize until recently that the company is still in business and making the same stuff new. Ditto - only [1000000] more shirts on eBay and that dining set will be mine.
    Not every day you see a RR Phantom either...suicide doors are sweet on some rides (Lincoln Continental; not so much on a Pontiac Fiero - let alone those godawful "Lambo doors").
    OK turning back over to the thrifters with schwag to post!

    Is this label worth picking up? Saw a navy flannel blazer with it today. Think it was kind of large though, approximately 44. Debating if I should go back.

    Congrats! I had been eyeballing that on etsy for a while now. Was skeptical it would sell at that price. I saw an 80's ralph lauren shirt exactly like this today. Obviously wasn't NOS but debating going back for it. Left it behind because it was two sizes two large for me.

    Picked up one of these Zero Halliburton aluminum briefcases, $1.99. Unfortunately the previous owner bolted a padlock latch onto it.

    Also, big thanks to ocooney for trading me a fantastic Andover Shop overcoat in charcoal herringbone, and for tossing in a sweet bonus shirt. It's an amazing coat and he was a pleasure to trade with.

    Cost $7, worth $25 so you left them. Perhaps it's just me, but I wouldn't leave thirteen $10 bills hanging.

    Looking to buy a leather Ray-Ban branded glasses case, to fit my Rx "New Wayfarers" sunglasses, and alternately my smaller Rx Ray-Ban indoor glasses. Something like this. Pisses me off every time I spend $600 on glasses they give me a cheap pleather case that cracks & chips in a week.
