If you see a guy walking the streets of Geneva in a Sid Mashburn suit and a shitty Merona peacoat, give him the super-secret thrift thread handshake. I'm leaving for Switzerland tonight, and I can't find my coat. Solution: a $40 peacoat from Target. It will keep me relatively warm and looks more professional than my other options. Related: I have one free day in Geneva. Any suggestions? Oh, and thrifting related: I went to TJ Maxx last night to try to...

OK. I'll try to keep up with this thread now that job things have settled down, but it's hard when everytime I log in, there are 350+ posts.

It's been a while. If any of you, in passing, happen to glance over at the winter baby boy wear and happen to see something in a warm winter coat/snow suit that would fit a nine-month-old built like a linebacker (I don't know where he gets it) and could possibly be good for him to wear for a few months, please let me know.

.... so my wife had a very bad day at her (former) job. What's the best way to ask your boss for a $55,000 raise? All this while I'm in Miami for a conference. Great.
