    From your measurements, it looks like you should've listed that as a 42. Looks like it would have fit me just about perfect.

    Start thrifting rare, valuable jazz records, and I'll get you into Downbeat!

    Actually, I wonder if anyone's found some late, great musician's wardrobe a la the Paul Newman find on Putthison. That would make for a good piece.

    Edit: And the writer made a lot of money from that too. In flight magazines pay really, really well. Actually, I have some contacts at American ....

    LOL, Mainy Eazy and Spoo in an article! Crazy, how did they contact you guys? I'd have shit myself if I read this randomly on an airplane.

    Wonder how many lurkers that will create :uhoh:

    On the other hand, I found this to be one of the most shocking items of the article:

    Woah ! thats wild . I had no idea what it was actually from. I just buy any vintage plaques, they're usually religious.

    Also, not sure what you mean by "thats not the dior you're looking for" , they're both very nice items.

    Is the writer a regular?

    One would think the people who make their living out of this would be reluctant to advertise their business model in return for a 15 sec. fame to people who would never take a second look to thrifting thread of styleforum even if they stumbled in a google search. :confused: Oh well. Carry On.
