If you have hit some unexpected expenses this year and are having trouble stretching your paycheck to get the things everyone wanted and needed, please let me know. My shopping is done and I am happy to float a Christmas loan without the vig in order to ease your Christmas. I'll certainly respect your privacy and won't mention it anywhere on here.

Very well put, and a very kind offer.
I was hired for a full time job in October, after over 2 years of unemployment, low-paying temp work, and scraping by on thrift sales, so I definitely felt that pinch. I still did some Christmas shopping at thrift stores this year, but it was pretty cool to be able to afford a new cashmere stocking cap for my sister this year. 2016 can only be a better year.
Happy New Year to all!

I was just going through some stuff to either donate, list on ebay, or list on here in the Buy sell thread.  

 

I ran across this and never really noticed the label.  I knew it was Zegna, but I hung it up and forgot about it.  

 

 

BUT, the more interesting thing is the name inside: 

 

 

That says Charles Koch.  

 

I always wondered where all the stuff the Kochs donated ended up.  I got this at Goodwill. But, its pretty old and I would guess a billionaire doesn't hang on to Sport Coats this long. 

 

In case you don't who Charles Koch is:

The Kochs live in our fair City of Wichita, Kansas. 

 

That's a cool find. BUT,

Warning: a little bit of rant. (Click to show)
as an union member, had I found his stuff, I would have tore that shit up for the Kochs love busting unions. Otherwise, if it's super recent and cashmere...I would flip the shit out of it without any remorse whatsoever!

Croc? Some of the "scales" are lifting on the heel and feel more substantial then the other parts like lifted. I'm lost on this one.
