- make direct insults at others
- make direct sales pitches that are not in the spirit of the thread

what we should be doing
- using thumbs
- saying "available" or 'N/A"
- making those of us who come here to escape work feel like we are watching a action comedy, not a drama


SPOO OUT
Thank you for sharing this info. I will try and do better if I'm not banned from the thread. Sorry to all I may have offended by words or actions or my missed typing on my listing. I'm not out to undercut anyone. I originally came here to see what others get and show stuff but unfortunately it seems like it always ends poorly. Never did I think I would be throwing jabs with someone over used stuff that smells like mothballs or having a size me up competition. So again my apologies gentlemen.

Yes, but my point of view may be different than others.  I don't mind a little straight up bragging about $ made on an item.  If that was a strict rule we'd all stop posting skeets, because it's not like 99% of us are excited about wearing it.

Thrifting is like smoking crack, it's all you can think about while you are not doing it.

MUCH more accurate.

 

Got nothing new to post, because, unlike crack, I can actually wean myself off shopping for a week and not go to the hospital.  Will keep posting stuff as I work through the backlog.

Agreed. I'm okay with people posting fodder, though. A lot of us in smaller places have to make it work with just that type of shit a lot of the time haha.

@impuntura
  if you click this more words come out, its crazy... (Click to show)
.... it seems likek your quite easily ammussed, it also seems like your incapable of retaining information. This thrifting you do, to make money yea? you still with me? that I know a good percentage at the very least if not all yoru clothing, is getting consigned because youve mentioned this, a long with certain other things that make it abundantly clear, YOUR MAKING LESS MONEY PRECISELY DO TO SHIT LIKE THIS BECUASE YOUR SELLERS ARE LOOSING THE CONFIDENCE OF BUYERS OR THEY ARE LOSING BUSINESS TO UNDERCUTTERS SO THEY ARE HAVING TO SETTLE ON OFFERS FAR BELOW WHAT THEY SHOULD BE GETTING. YO COMPRENDE, YOUR LOOSING MONEY ON EVERY SINGLE IEM. ARE YOU STILL LAUGHING..because i thnnk thats as basic and straight forward as I can make it. Why having to spell the fact that I exposed something quite blatnatly about the indsutyr a 40 yourold man uses to make his incone, is resulting in him loosing money is beyond me. Your feelings towards me, I dont know where they manfiested, but I do know a couple other things though, that the reason and source of them, is and will never bea concern of mine because you continually prove to me in so many many ways....well lets just say its is so beyond caring that its laughable and the reasonings for thsi are as as well....good luck with yourself....and when I know something goes over your head again, Ill just let it stay there, because there is no fucking point.

@freehand
  I appreciate your sincerity and Im honestly doing great, you may expand to see where I was coming from and my state and take on your words, if you wish. (Click to show)
.... I appreciate your direction and that what you said did in fact seem genuine and you were just speaking man to man. but I would just like to assure you that 1. this is in no way affecting my life, a morning measuring a rack that was quite literally just about half full and packed of purely Brioni all current Brioni suits.... well that can put a smile on any mans face, probably the one above (rebuttal bro?). So business is on track and going nowhere but up and lifes great. But as I stated in first, so I dont need to again, I came across something, one of us, pretnedning to be acontirnbuting member, partaking in actiosn that is in turn hurting the income of the very large percentage of people on here who like to sell goods they thrift as well. This is infomration that I personally was upset over due to my dedication to honesty and my business acumeman and ny busienss plan all focused on primiary ideals of the utmost importance, all thigns that are nbeyond necessities to be one of the people that actually are able to be succesful in this indsutry, Its a skill set that is hard to cultivate and one you must always unwaveringly apply, and thank god I am quite good at doing so. But others who don't spend the time I do or have perhaps the education I am luckily enough to possess, may want to know this so they can be aware that there are people here actively participating in behaviors fucking them over. The people here I respect and I truly like, they deserve to know...and the cuplprit, after ifnorigin an attempt to settlle the situation quickly and effortsless went flat out ignored and the listing remained, as do others people have actually been sending to me (SO YES THIS ACTUALLY MATTERS TO PEOPLE) he deserved to be publically revealved and knwon andpractices divulged so a name can be put to the reason why you only got 200 bucks for a Brioni suit or whatever (thats just an example but you understand my point). I'm fine, and so is what I do because of how I do it, however exposure was deserved and it won't continue.

@My Main Man
  Personally I'm partial to butter cups myself, but would you happen to know if snickers goes better with pictured below? Thanks in advance...oh and click to see how truly ignoranant and thoughtless your flippancy is in regards to this community, that is if you actually do care about the members of it and alll, your choice. (Click to show)
I appreciate your flippant response to what I shared it was entirely appropritate. It truly showed that you not only grasped the issue at hand, but that reasonsn like this, are the reasons why Spoos auctiosn finish for less now on a consistent basis, something I know he is very aware of but I know will not discuss, but Im sure he doesn't appreciate. I don't know what it is that you do for your income, you don't need to share it with me because I honestly dont need know nor does it matter. But as someone who does this for aliving coming across something like this being done by someone on this thread actively and conitually, is something that I tried to handle via PM quickly and quitely and it went ignored, so he needed to be exposed and the people who sell deserve to know that someone here is actively partaking in methods that directly result in lower reutnrs. This may  nto matter to you and good for you that it doesn't, but somepeople, they need a secondary source of income and they dont need to be backstabbed by form members and if this is occuring, they deserve to know. I hope you are good at what you do, I hope there isnt an influx of people for whatever desk you sit at actively petitioning your boss to sit in your chair for an amount of money you make in an hour, that theyll take for the week. Now personanlly, I know what Im doing and Im good at at it and I know how to take measures that allow me to not be affected by this undercutters and what not. Ill openly admit that shit all day, WHILE I EAT A WHOLE FUCKING BOX OF SNICKERS at my desk. So again, thank you for taking the time to try and understand what this truly menas, the lifes that it affects, and the money people are not getting because of practices like this, TRULY, THANK YOU, its so relieving that you didn't just choose to resspond with some weak comment compeltely diismissing what I shared without a care or thought of a single other member of this thread that that informeation affects. Thank  you.....Your brain able to grasp information now? Are we getting it? I hope so because I will only do impuntura words for him I cant do it for evyerone. So have a good day

BECAUSE I HAD A GREAT DAY, why? Because I fucking found IT.....WELL ACTUALLY honestly IT FOUND  ME AND IT FOUND ME IN A FLAT OUT UNFATHOMABLE MANNER. LET ME BE CLEAR THAT THIS WAS NOT AT TRUE THRIFT AND WAS NOT HANGING OUT IN THE OPEN AT MY LOCAL GOODWILL
 .....BUT THE GRAIL HAS BEEN FOUND, THE GRAIL. Yall just peep the preview below if it hasn't already been made obvious enough .... I can now claim official ownership and will be able to make that very statement for the rest of my life and never ever be lying. I fucking got it, all. fucking. mine.




So for you 3 and everyone else, you continue on with your days, and enjoy yourselfs, especially you @impuntura
 and actuallly @My Main Man
 a snickers does sounds like a good call right now, thanks for the suggestion... I guess I'm just feeling ina good mood or something....

Oh and Ill be sure to retain from giving out infomation that is important to this thread, I apologize, I try to just help, but hey you don't want it, I can't do anything about that.... GOOD LUCK OUT THERE EVERYONE. MAY BRIONI AND LP BE THE THE FUTURE FOR ALL.

JOMPSO IS FUCKING OUT. ADIOS.
Get snickers with Almonds, Its better.

Brodeetz in due time with other bits of haul. Prices were FAR more than true thrift, but still good enough. Definitely can't take trades or cut deals on these guys. 




2x flat front Super 130s Isaia suits, 42 x 3something

















Enrico Isaia staple gray, 46 R x 3something

 


Sort of freaking out over what I paid (A LOT), but you don't leave a Brunello Cucinelli cashmere-trimmed down jacket. Size L.

Sorry on the phone and cant spoiler. That jacket was a large? Dang, I saw it hanging and passed because they had the sign on it saying Mediun abd it was hanging behind the desk. I snagged the Cucinelli pants though. Almost picked up the red label since it fit me but passed yesterday. $80 a suit aint bad!

I don't recall what you said/did, but this was not directed at you by any means. just a general refresher as the thread was starting to get off the rails.
