Looking to find a new home for my Casio Protrek Watch (triple sensor: Altimeter, Barometer, Compass) that was purchased in 2014 at Kohls. I think I paid about $100 for the watch and am selling it for $55 shipped CONUS by USPS priority. This is a great watch for travel and adventures! Will try to...
Several years ago I came across several of these mailers that I suppose were never delivered. The letter inside is introducing the Gillette Super Blue Blades and is dated February 8, 1960. The sample of Blue Blades are still wrapped in cellophane and the mailer is in really good shape.
Sort of, I think. They are similar in the sense they are creams, but I think they serve different purposes. I like the fact the AE has pigment, but Reno is good for general conditioning...different strokes for different folks!
I have never owned a pair of chukka boots before; I don't know why...I just never fancied them. Well I stumbled across a pair on eBAY and put in a low-ish bid on a pair of brown shell cordovan Allen Edmonds Dundees. The boots themselves looked a little rough (scratches, but no scuffs/cuts/nicks)...
Got a pair Lucchese Ropers off of d'bay and aid $50. They are the 1883s, so US made but nothing special. They need soles and heels, and I wasn't sure who you would recommend. I have had good luck with B Nelson, but their boot repair is $165 which seems high given the purchase price of...
I have my eyes on a few new suits (workhorse kinds of suits), and I am kind of funny shaped (50R). I like wool suits, and was looking at the 1818 line at Brooks Brothers.
What's the best time/way to maximize my value for my suit purchase? Friends and Family sales?
Agree with all the above comments. I just got back from a two week trip to Japan, AUS, and China taking nothing by my Air Boss and my Metro brief case. The Air Boss is a little deceptive. You can stuff the heck out of it, almost to the point where it is too uncomfortable to carry over the shoulder.
Never seen anything like that either, and it is not normal. The beauty of shell is that the color (normally) goes very deep into the leather (as opposed to just sitting on the surface). That's why a bit of heat and rubbing will remove most scuffs, etc. I saw this article on AAAC, but it did not...
Yes, they are technically seconds, but it is usually really hard to find significant defects. With these, my collection has grown over the past 2.5 years to:
Park Aves (Black)
5th Aves (Walnut)
Hancocks (Black, but originally Merlot)
Long Branch Boots
Well, another year of the annual AE Tent Sale has come and gone. This year I was offered the flyer for an extra 50% off my purchase so I made my way up to Port Washington on Sunday.
I arrived and it was a madhouse; litterly like Black Friday at Best Buy. There had to be 150 under this smallish...
