Dropped him off at CeX a few weeks back. I'll convince myself this is his inheritance! Laughing out loud

I'm blaming you for the Skagways!

It'd be sick to see some more regular purchases on fuk rather than these big gross splurges imo, wanna see some steals or weird purchases, not this weird excesses of some finance job cheers

For instance: bought these last month from eBay:


Auxiliary - cool little British brand that does repros of old skate shoes. Got them for 45, must have been an outlet/ex retail thing - retail for about 200, but dead impressed with the construction, lining and details on these. Think I might get a layer of vibram put on the bottom as I drag my heels and I'd like these to last!

eBay and outlet finds that I’m pretty happy with. Winter Skagways for less than 2 bills and fuckboy Fragments for gym / basketball that came for less than a pinkie.

Not seen it before but that site seems to have some really interesting stuff but unfortunately it's pretty much unreadable Sad

Good to see both TBH, not heard of Auxilliary and like the idea. Looked them up and the ones you got are the only ones I like.

On this point, at least half the stuff I buy is used, just lightly, or a deal/sale item. I get just as much pleasure from finding the stuff as owning it.

The art of the deal and all that. I never pay full price for Vis for example.

Agreed, just would be nice to see a bit of extra variety in here, want to see some brands I've not heard of that someone's got from yahoo.jp or a grail that someone's been after for years.

EB i've been after something like that but all the patchwork bandanas i've seen have black and navy.

Like the look of the overlord ones - I'm expecting that brand to start going up in price now they're featured in a few more retailers.

To be fair this is one of my favourite threads and I always check it. Didn't realise nothing had really been posted since I had put stuff on before so I appreciate it is vis heavy atm, which is a shame as I am completely with you on that.

My grail in this instance was definitely the Eiger shorts. Never been able to find them for a decent price and finally managed to find a proxy that would do email orders so really chuffed to have got them. The details and materials are really nice. I'm sure the pair from RRL are just as good but was put off by the drawstrings on the hem and the ripstop as it reminded me of kids cargo shorts! Laughing out loud

If anyone fancies the burgundy tee, I've got it on ebay as I completely messed up on the sizing!
