    Oh I forgot to mention. If anyone is a 17 - 17.5 is interested in some thomas pink shirts PM me. I found a treasure cove but didn't want to gamble picking them up. Some classic fit. Some slim. All spread collar in conservative patterns. Believe there were 6

    Great haul! As Spoo said, you've got a lot of eBay bucks there. Those TRs are excellent eBay currency!

    Pretty sure that fourth pair down is fake. Don't know about the rest.

    Those are Joey Super Ts, with contrast stitching. The lining has the Bhuddas, tags all look right and buttons/rivets all seem right. Why do you think they're fake?

    Straight cut of the coin pocket flap

    Also, do this. Just better to be safe than get your account flagged.

    Top of the flap is straight, but the bottom is triangular. Please tell me that makes them real....

    That's my point, straight like triangle edges, they don't have the curved cut like you see on the back pocket flaps. See the edit to my post above.

    Yeah, def doing this. I have less than no interest in selling fake stuff online.

    This is option B, except that I tore the tag off. I think that may hose me entirely. And the question is: Can I find something I like/need to exchange?

    New racks roll out every hour or so, so methinks yes.

    Interestingly enough I just found out one of my co-worker's dad is a sales person at Alden. I asked him for a hook up and all he could hook me up was a catalog...

    Hit a couple of stores yesterday and didn't find a lot. One store had 50% off of everything and I still didn't grab anything. I did, however, find a bunch of cloth I needed to make a new bed for my dog. I bought it for €3 and went to work. This is what I came up with:

    [​IMG]


    It's about 5 feet long and my dog loves it. Considering dog pillows of this size are going to easily be north of €100 and I paid around €16, I feel pretty good about it even if it doesn't last too long. The kicker was the stuffing. I went to 4 different sewing shops and if they had anything at all, it would have cost €50 for enough stuffing. I instead went to IKEA and bought 13 of pillows that had 350grams of stuffing for .99 each. How is it possible that IKEA can sell a pillow cheaper than other shops can sell the stuffing?!
