Kanye meets homeschooler:

 

 

(This jacket is so bad ass, 100% cashmere, tons of pick stitching and handwork, thrifted for 13 bucks)

Completely apart from seeing the pattern with sports managers, I saw it with a particular CEO and was baffled and horrified. And everyone around him was like mesmerized. He was useless. And drove the company into the ground. Then went on to do it again somewhere else.

 

You know who should be paid a lot more than they are in these non-profits?   The people who actually work at fundraising.   I do understand the need to have a CEO at the top that knows how to run a massive organization and they should be paid well for doing it.   What I have observed is that the CEO is paid well and there are a whole lot of folks lower down the totem pole that are out there raising the money to fund the organization that are not well paid.  I have seen this in organizations where I am a board member, or non-profit clients of mine, or through friends and family.

Usually stay as far away from thrifts as possible on big sale days. Decided to just bite the bullet today, Glad I did. Found these, despite the place being a complete zoo.

First Sammy is absolutely amazing. Feels like a cashmere blend. All are probably from the same donor. 44 L.











2014 Adrian Jules tweed.






More stuff.

Then I saw the guys tie rack, literally looked at 5 ties and shoved the whole thing in my bag. I didn't know what I bought until I got home.

That XXL Polo coat looks nice.  :hide:

 

@SpooPoker I know you have a thing about signs.   What is it again?  I am going to an area that has apparently NOT been thrifted much by anyone on here, so I am wondering what I will find.  

 

I'm going to the DEEP SOUTH and there is definitely old money on the Coast.  So, I'm probably not going to find Cuccinelli or Kiton, but I would guess I will find LOTS of vineyard vines, a lot of Trad type stuff and other OLD Money stuff.  I'm hoping to be swimming in Shell Cordovan and Oxxford (fingers crossed).  

 

If nothing else, the Gulf is certainly known for hospitality, great food (I have been having Po Boy withdrawals), and it will be WARM.   It is decidely NOT warm here in Kansas right now.  So, I can't wait for 65 degrees!

Quick question as I really haven't had to deal with this before but what's a good way to clean stuff off of shoes without damaging them?
