    Been at this for roughly 6 months and slowing building my wardrobe. This thread has been such a help.

    Today after about ten stops with nothing. Found an older Borelli in excellent shape with the thick buttons. After that found more and ended up finding the whole donation. Unfortunately the shirts are a little to big, but the pants fit

    All 15.5/39
    1 - Borelli Napoli, 1 - Zegna, 4 - Canali

    Pair of Brioni and Canali pants

    Ok, I will go and get the Nicky's ties. They were cool.
    So, I am having surgery on May 6th, so I will be a non-thrifter by way of I cant walk for 4 weeks.

    Good luck with that, brother! Let me know if you need something in particular while you're laid up and I'll keep my eyes open for you. Of course, you might have better luck asking Knight Rider to keep his eyes peeled. [​IMG]

    No. Gutted the airbox to flow better than the WS6. Made 290hp/321tq to the tires through an auto. not bad for a stock car rated at 305/335 to the crank!

    ^^ Nice find. I love the old Duck Hunter &quot;beo gam&quot; pattern. You don't see it at all anymore. I had a t-shirt in this pattern a long time ago and wore 'till it was paper thin. Wish I could find another....

    Recently found a winter jacket in this pattern made for the old Burger Brothers Sporting Goods stores here in Minnesota before they changed to Holiday and then to Gander Mountain. Probably dates from the late 70's/early 80's.

    Used pair of Russel Moccasin Co. Mocks in 8.5D in good condition but they fit me big. Went to their website and they state that they run about a half size larger than stated. Will probably sell this

    Top - Coach Belt (32) in brown, Bottom - Trafalgar belt (32) black

    Also found 2 J Crew button dress shirts in Blue(100%) and White(80's 2-ply cotton) in my size - 14.5*32. It so hard to find stuff in my size but I make do
