    Yup, I do. It came to mind when I first saw the "RNSM" label but now I'm not so sure. I think someone from this thread came across a similar pair a little while ago but my memories not doing me any favours at the moment.

    That is a find, esp since any "modern" Peugeots are made in China

    You'll be hard pressed to find anything if it is from them. They were always "The store on top of Goodfoot" and now that they've been closed 3-4 years it should be tough to track down info. They used to have sample sales 3-4 times a year which I'm 100% sure included their own brand of raw denim, so it could be one of those. Then again, I could be completely wrong and this could be something else, I can't say with certainty that it's from them but if I was a betting man that's what I would go with.

    Yep you're right! Thanks! Just checked recent Belvest labels on eBay!

    Too bad I'm sure it won't get love on eBay :(

    I've been wearing them for the past 4 hours putting around the house and the waist has already stretched out. Put on a pair of loafers and there is like a 1/4 break and they look fine. My gonadare still bitching about the accommodations tho [​IMG] I figure a couple more days of this and they will be good enough to wear in public

    While I know E-thrifting is frowned upon by some in this establishment, when you live in the middle of nowhere somtimes its the best you can do so I thought I would share the last week.

    Also ended up with this Rag & Bone piece. Pop! Tagged as XXL but looks a lot smaller.

    Has anyone had experience with Patrizia Pepe sneakers? I found a pair of yellow canvas with a side zip that didn't have a lot of wear on the soles, but I passed as I didn't recognize the name. I took a pic of the soles to help me remember though.

    99% sure these are the ones I was looking at...

    S/o to @hooker4186 for being such a great stand-up guy. He's the first person I've met from SF in real life and he really represents what I expected of this community - generous, friendly, willing to share knowledge. Thank you for the PRL blazer which will look great with some minor tailoring and I hope we get to thrift together sometime [​IMG]

    Hi GM-H,

    How did you know that the "WSCGC" on the web belt was Women's Southern California Golf Club?

    Thanks. LogoballJim

    Ours only take cash or CHECKS. The check writers are looked up by hand on a 50 page print out.

    I'd rather have my credit card hacked.

    Sort of used to walking around with a big clip of cash in my pocket though.

    [​IMG] It's hard to judge without my tape measure nearby as I have a weird size (long legs, big thighs/ass, smaller waist), but I gave it another shot trying them on and I think I made the shrinkage sound more sever than it really is. They would fit me if the inseam was a few inches longer and I'm a 33/34 waist. I can get you some more accurate measurements in the morning!
    Until I can prove otherwise, I'm going to consider these the Ransom you're talking about, haha. It would make sense considering I can't find ANYTHING else that would suggest they're anything different.
