    I still cant fathom it myself.



    What makes you think Im selling them? :confused: :lol:



    I was JUST saying the other day that I needed some new belts. Seriously. I havent bought a belt for myself in like 2 years.

    Tomorrow, I am starting to say that I need a new Ferrari.



    Yup, 99.9% real. Ive handled many MM bags, this is it. Very excited about this one.



    Really? Its so warm and cozy, canadian Goose and the whole 9 :( I know shit about that kind of thing though.

    DC SC is bananas. Wish it were smaller, I would totally rock that.

    ^^ Dang, Spoo!


    I'd love to see that. Speaking of old stuff from trad makers, I spotted this today:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    1941 Hickey Freeman

    Navy flannel and, somehow, flawless at 71 years old. Really well made and cool to see. Measures about a 40 or 41 R, with sleeves on the short side (32–33"). 6 on 2, besom pockets, pleated and cuffed, unvented. Didn't pick it up but thought it was worth a mention.

    There were a few other pieces from the same era, including a 1950 shepherd's check suit that had flaws.

    Let's not let this get lost in the justifiable excitement over belts. Yes, if it's in good condition, it is significant. Stuff that old is hard to find, and BB was indeed fine back then. Pictures. We need pictures.

    I'd think that something that old, at GW prices ($13), would be worth picking up. Someone will want to pay good money for it.

    Wow, I feel honored to be considered, however incorrectly, in the same grouping as Spoo and DM7.
