The girlfriend of one of my co-workers is active duty military, and she recently had to switch all of her combat uniforms over to the new spec. This means she's no use for her old uniform bits, some of which are brand new.

In particular

3 pair of Belleville boots, size 5.5W (men's size, that's about a women's 8 or 8.5). Two of them are brand new in boxes, one pair has never been worn but has been stored in a dusty location. Since they don't make these anymore, i can't point you to a website that describes the *exact* boot, but they're closest to the 880ST on belleville.com which retail for about $140. They're black waterproof leather with no cloth or gore-tex patches, with molded soles, speed laces, and steel toes. Make me a decent offer if you're interested. In a few days, i'll throw them up on eBay if no one bites.

In philanthropic leanings, i've got 3 "Medium/Regular" green camo army shirts, either new or barely worn (i'm particularly keen to get rid of these, as i'll never wear them in a million years). Finally, she gave me way more green camo combat trousers (small/short, medium/regular, and small/regular) than i could possibly wear. They're in new to very good condition. Want a pair and live in town? Just scream. Out of town? Provide $ to ship 'em to you. Supplies limited.

***edit***
To clarify, for the purposes of the trousers, "small" is waist size 27-31, and medium is 31-34.

Why are people so tiny? *sigh* I'd really like some new boots, too. Oh well.

Lol. The funny thing is that the boots are significantly too small for me.

I've always liked the word "buxom". :)

Oh, me too! And I think it's an apt description, in our cases. :D

I think I would like to 'bite' on a pair of the boots, and perhaps request a shirt and a pair of the medium pants to match, if you'd be so kind. I live far, far away, so shipping would be a necessity.

Would you find $70, including shipping, reasonable?

Could I swipe a pair of *small* pants? I'm all about small things, being small and all.

Also, when do you want to meet this weekend? I am going to 7ghent's party tomorrow night and Roller Derby on Sunday at 6, but that is all I have other than sleeping and thinking healing thoughts at the remnants of my cold.
