    In the future please ensure that no feet pics are uploaded... Thanks [​IMG][​IMG]

    That H by Hilfiger jacket is nice, that was their higher end line. I think they shut it down though.

    Yeah, dude, when you thrift long enough, you'll had run into all kinds of people. I'm not saying she's lying but I'm sure in shit hell don't believe her. Just like that link to the Sulka ties quilted whatever, it looks cool but I don't see any indication that those ties are Sulka.

    I don't know. I swear I saw an online article (maybe PTO) about a quilt made from amazing ties.
    And there's this.

    Huh. Quote didn't work.
    Spoo: you know it. Last week yielded a new in box remote controlled generator. Not that it didn't cost me, but worth it. (Needless to say, hit me if you are in the area)
    Re green screen walls: that is an AWESOME idea I can believe I didn't think of!

    Last week I was at one of the GW on my home route. After spending about 20 min not finding anything I was getting ready to leave. As always I look behind the counter for returns and be hold I see 3 ties. I asked the manager who was at the counter to take a look. He brings back three Hermes ties, two without labels and one needing restitching. He proceeds to tell me that there are two old ladies that buy ties for a craft projects at this store. And that this week they are making some sort of quilt thing. Made me wonder why they would need ties with labels if they are making quilts.

    One another note here is a frankenstein Tie by RT.

    Cool find. Borsalino has made a couple of hats like this for Tracht, traditional clothing. I think they're pretty desired.
    Boom, roasted. +1...my first thought as well. GMMcL: Can't wait to hear more about this sale!! Big shout out to SpooPoker for sending me a box of awesome! My doorbell rang and I open it to see the postman with a USPS box which always has me quickly racking my brain trying to remember what I ordered. My dog was curious and trotted over to stick his head out and see who it was. Apparently this postman, filling in for someone else, was terrified of dogs. His eyes got huge and he ran backwards quite a few steps. I had to tell him that he's friendly, but there was no way he really believed that. He basically tossed me the box and the scanner to sign. I felt bad but couldn't help to laugh. Does this guy look scary?? [​IMG] I guess he could be, under the right circumstances.... [​IMG] [​IMG]

    A fairly ordinary day today, punctuated by a couple of interesting things.

    Two 5ml perfume minis: Versace L'Homme and Grossmith Phul-Nana. The Phul-Nana is vintage with a bakelite cap, probably from the 20s or 30s, and is full. The local perfumistas reckon this is an insane find.

    No-brand tie. I like the pattern and hand of this, so I grabbed it. Does the label look familiar to anyone.

    Batch of 10 wooden hangers for $6, that I grabbed because I need them now I'm finding all these suits and coats all of a sudden.

    Had to leave behind a Georgio Armani black label sports coat (by Vestimenta) because although a 42, it was just too weirdly long. Also left suits by Corneliani and Zegna that were just not in good enough shape.

    From having a wife that does do quilting, the tie quilts are quite common and they enjoy making them. They dont use old polyesters, and always look for silk ties.
    At least mine know what brands not to use...story sounds legit to me as well.

    Hans, LOVE your Airedale. I had two growing up a long with a standard poodle. I desperately wish my current lifestyle allowed me enough time and space to have another.
