5 seconds and I got a list of 300 results for the same thing and they''re still active, notice how none of them actually have the patch or are identical to the jacket? Also none are near 100 bucks either. Nice research though.

If you read the listing on the one he posted, it did have the patch. Anyway, I'm done with the discussion. You feel how you want to feel about it.

Never pass up a master's green sport coat. I am of course not referring to an actual one like in the story. I am talking about generic green sport coats. I always list a few the month before the master's tournament and people shell out $50-$60 on them to wear at parties or other events.

 

 

Timing is definitely everything on those jackets. Easy money in the spring tho!

He bought a jacket and applied a patch and its not 100 bucks, I dont see the point. And if your business plan is that simple, I'd take a step back and reevaluate. If I bought and sold everything I knew could make me money I wouldn't have a business.

PSA - A local outdoor store in town is moving locations and has discounted a ton of current merchandise before they do. According to one of the managers they're hoping to sell a majority of the inventory before moving. Tons of Patagonia, Kuhl, Mountain Hardwear - if there is something specific you are looking for let me know, most everything is current season. Sportswear is 50% off, outerwear is 40%, baselayers 30%

 

I saw 2 Barbour Classic Bedale but had my hands full and couldn't see sizes. Can go back in check is anyone would want one at, at what I assume to be 40% off

They had about 6 Filson bags (Original Briefcase in Olive and Tan, Padded Laptop Briefcase in Tan, Tablet Briefcase in Tan) all 30% off

 

Filson Mackinaw Vest - Buffalo in 38-44, Grey in 40

Should be 40% off

 

 

Mackinaw Cruisers - Similar Sizes

 

 

Tin Cloth - Similar Sizes

 

 

Because I know @Fueco loves the alohas, this was an item from their Spring 2016 Sample sale. Tons of stuff at cheap prices (plus their liquidation sale on top) but most everything was a medium

I'd remember that the clothes are donated for a reason, hopefully that reason is because they don't fit, are not wanted, or never worn, but that reason is often because they are fucked. You gotta at least give it a once over when your in there, cuz missing that shit is crazy. Now you have the decision to either pay the dry cleaning bill for a wool coat in hopes that they can remove the stain, or you eat your loss. The previous owner most likely tried the cleaners before donating but you bought it so you may as well give it a shot, but don't try and spot clean something that big on a wool coat. If you go about it wrong or use the wrong stuff, you will fuck up the nap of the wool and on a spot that big, that would be/look just as bad as the stain.

To be honest, the stain isn't really noticeable once worn. But it's still a pain the ass!

I checked the lining, and armpit seams for stains/rips etc and nothing of the sort. Must have just been low lighting.
Great tips though mang, defiantly taken on board smile.gificon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Did I say or imply any of this? I don't even remember mentioning thrifting. Your desire to come at me at any opportunity is a bit weird at this point. Read or don't, block or don't, just do something and move on.

Well that's good then, then just drop it at a good cleaners and see what they can do and worse comes to worse its the same and it doesn't matter. I'd try and get it cleaned up though. But yea, definitely something you gotta keep in the back of you mind, especially with nicer things you find. Paying premiums for labels and not checking the item because your stoked on finding it in the first place, just to get it home and find out it's fucked is a shitty feeling, I learned that one the hard way, a few times..

Youre one of those people that loves to hear the sound of your own voice.every time you "school" somebody it comes across that you know everything which 99% of your posts.
What was weird was that little meltdown you had awhile back.
Anyway,I got better things to do Im sure you do too.

Meltdown? Explain... Also, when I offer suggestions or help, I'm not trying to "school" anyone, I'm trying to help them out cuz I've either been in their shoes or are familiar with the situation. I don't talk out of my ass nor do I ever come at someone in any manner that is malicious or with malcontent. If they don't agree or don't want to listen, that's fine, it's their choice. Unlike yourself, a grown ass man in case you forgot, I have never and don't ever come at people with negative intentions. Not the type of person I am. I know what type of person you are though, someone over 40 who still feels the need to talk shit on the internet. Also, obsessively try and put another person down at any opportunity they can. Again, this is just weird.

Just grow up and block me and move on. Be an adult about something and take control of the situation. You don't like what I say, don't read it.
