The official thrift/discount store bragging thread - Part II (Return to the Thunderdome) - Page 1906

post #28576 of 51179

i dunno, i don't have any qualms with competition but i don't like to draw maps simply because i hunt what i hunt, they might hunt other stuff, etc etc.

 

seems to me other folks are just as well off with yelp and google as they would be with my advice. then again i thrift in a very desultory way but i do okay! 

 

which reminds me, copped a ricci suit today. had to reunite and errythang.

Not true thrift, but since they were for personal use, I was happy to take a risk on the 13.5 sizing and 14.5" insole length

A few recent finds; not even close to everything, but it'll have to suffice. Between work and classes, I'm effectively doing 50+ hour workweeks, to say nothing of flipping-related activities.
 

Starting things off with an unstructured Isaia casual triple patch. 95/5 cotton/silk. Suprising lack of handwork for a fairly modern piece, save for some internal details. Measures in at a 42, despite being tagged a 46.

I usually don't post single items but this one is worth it. I couldn't resist the urge "guys" lol. Consignment find.

I'll add these just because I think they're cool.

@SomethingsFishy, can you post pictures of the other tags in that North Face down. Something seems fishy.

On it. Seems spot-on for an early-run Baltoro though.

 

 

How are we looking?

I show up drunk.  It's sort of my thing.

That's pretty awesome - congrats!!

Fuck it, part of the struggle here is knowing how to navigate yourself to optimize number of stops, and that's something an out of towner could never do moving here, I could hit 10 spots to there 3 or 4, so I'll still give out my route, up for a challenge if they want to test.

 

And yes, it is all easily found out via the internet, so you can be a nice guy and save the person the trouble, or be a dick and tell them to search blindly for thrifts in a city they know nothing about.

not only for the good times but for the fact that you won't remember where we went.

@capnwes @GMMcL @brianpore can attest to the drunk part anyhow

Can I?

I don't remember.

The thrifts they call to me.  Only item in the past couple weeks.  Regular work is keeping me far too busy.  I think about ditching the regular job and thrifting full time at least once a day.  Tomorrow will be worse . . . where is the rest of this guy's stuff?!
