You can tell the whole situation is really awkward because of he insisting on his "gentlemanly" manners, I'd imagine those dudes were really creeped out over it. That part/ad in the end with that pocketsquare stuff was pure gold though. (10)
FWIW, I thought both sides contributed to the awkwardness. Maybe it was the editing, but the SE guys didn't exactly dole out the thrifting insights like you'd expect from a duo notable for great thrifting sensibilities. In that respect, Thorn actually delivered (i.e. the bit about the crap shoes). Also a lot of responses to Thorn's comments seemed to be in the vein of "I have no idea what to say, but I'd better say something."
Awkwardness aside, I still dig the show's concept.
