    The Who :slayer:
    I just recently caught again The Stones' Rock & Roll Circus which features The Who, fiery and fierce, just having come off the tour on which Live at Leeds was recorded. Sublime!

    If you can, get Hot August Night by Neil Diamond.

    Nice! When I was in high school, I wanted leather backpacking boots and Pendletons (hello early 90s!). Vintage Grunge?

    i passed on a set of the full size luggage like a year ago. it was oooold and in not the best shape, all the linings were gone, etc. they wanted like 100 bucks for all of it (3 or 4 pieces) and i passed since i didn't even have anywhere to put it. this is the only other halliburton thing i've ever seen in a thrift besides that.

    InSANEly jelly. Amadar, wow.
    +1. Woa, Mainy. Nicely done. My measley pickup NWT RL black label 91% cashmere cowl neck button-up cardi, size S. But it cost me every bit of a hundo at TJX, even on final clearance. Going to hit the bay in the next few days, but if any of you small dudes want it at proxy, it's yours. Edit Pics or it didn't happen, so: [​IMG]

    Worst day of thrifting ever.

    I popped into a GW on the way home last night, just for a quick look. The store was mostly junk and very crowded. A morbidly obese woman in a powerchair (one of those motorized scooters) ran into me. She nailed my right foot, putting a HUGE gouge in the toe of my favorite pair of shoes, my Carmina captoes. GODDAMMIT.

    I left empty handed because everything was either junk or marked up to eBay prices.

    Got in the car only to realize I had lost my newly acquired Georg Jenson tie bar.

    FML.

    91% is such a tease. It seems like there's a perception out there that anything less than 100% cashmere might as well be .01% cashmere.

    Picked up a few things at lunch. Photo quality is terrible, had to use my iPhone...

    An awesome vintage Harrods double breasted tuxedo. I can't find a year, but I'd guess '50s-'60s. I also have no idea the resale on these, but the quality is so great, I didn't want to leave it. No moth holes. I'll post better pictures later, but a bunch of buttonholes on both the jacket and pants, all handsewn. Anyone have ANY clue as to the makers of these? No tags or country of origin. I'd guess an English maker, but I don't know how to find out.

    I found 3 NOS knit wool ties. I especially love the one on the right. Not sure how old they are, but were sealed in their original plastic.
