    John Varvatos boots are sick, I tell ya, sick. I almost popped my varicose veins when I saw them and realized they were a size 11 and thus too small.





    Wow, do not envy you man. Sounds like a complete nutter / rip off artist. If he leaves you negative, definitely involve eBay in terms of its removal since if they know about your issue and it is logged in their system, they will attribute it to sour grapes.





    I love hats. I want one of these:

    I am dead serious as well :nodding:





    Found in your neck of the woods as well, now if ever one of these pops up in 46L, you know who will be first customer in queue :devil:.

    A man of my own taste. I have wanted a hat like that since I first saw Crocodile Dundee when I was 6.

    Love it! No offence taken.

    That first picture is a visual representation of what Nick Tosches wrote when Dean Martin died. Something like: Dean Martin had the voice that every man thinks he has when he sings in the shower.

    So magic eraser is the key to removing the marker on soles? Sweet. What about general grime on leather soles? Yes I know there's a shoe care thread, but it doesn't have a lot on that. Those Trickers slippers I found a while back have wear, but more so a layer of dirt in the wear zone I'd like to clean off. Did I mention Tricker's states the embroidery on them is real gold? (well, at least some percentage)

    I had honestly never heard of this brand before, but then today while I was out...

    (just sticker glue on the lens that I haven't cleaned off yet)

    This thread certainly works in mysterious ways.


    What brand is HH? I saw a few items by them and passed :puzzled:


    I may or may not have added an extra number to the front in the past when I couldn't get it off.

    Hey all - a bit of a rookie at thrifting. Have only been a couple times. Went today with the girl to specifically hunt for shoes or blazers.

    Ended up finding these. Got them for $45. Can anyone help me verify them?
