I voted based on what I would most like to find and it was a tough choice, the Gucci crocs or the RLPL overcoat but in the end I had to go for eazye. The crocs would be sick to flip but really, for me, the RLPL would be rockable and the story on how he found it was just too great (and didn't he score a SC in the same run?)

To me it's a reminder that a certain percentage of the stuff in thrift stores is "dead men's clothes" - it's more likely that he died and his family unknowingly donated the jacket than the original owner forgetting that he'd swapped out the buttons.

Not there's anything wrong with that...but I'd think of it every time I put on the jacket.

I like to think of it as a pissed off wife who donated her cheating husbands prized Oxxford sport coat after walking in on him and his secretary......

How much could we flip the baby for?  Was it born with 14K gold teeth or toenails?

 

Congrats, Mexi!
