Good deal

jacketMy TravelSmith safari jacket was showing its age. The slash side pockets were ripped and there was an ink stain where the cap came off of my Mont Blanc gel pen and it bled badly. I got rid of most of the stain with repeated applications of high powered stain remover, but it still looked a little shabby.

But I was loathe to lay out the $129 + shipping to buy a new one.

Then I saw a new-with-tags example in my size on Ebay. I sniped it for $18.50, plus $9.95 shipping.

As Phil Robertson would say, Happy, Happy, Happy!
