So...I accidentally went to the $2 sale. You guys didnt miss much, just a nice corneliani suit that needs to be drycleaned, some shirts and a southwick suit because for $2 why not

 

BUT I did find these 2 items at another store for 14.99 a pop

A thief is wiping out one of my stores, probably more...

i saw him yesterday, he took half the rail and stuffed it all into two big sports bags taken from the shelves, i told the dude working there what was happening and as we went over there to see, the thiefy dude realised he'd been sussed and said 'i work for an orphanage and if you open your flappy mouth again i'll knock you out':slayer: and left.

Went back today and store guy said thiefy had been back and got away with it.

The staff are all volunteers and super nice but this guy is gonna clear them out, well,..ruin one of my best shops.

I only have a few(12) shops i frequent and they're all very local so i feel like i need to do something, so what can i do?

You can stop taking mind-altering drugs for a start.

Stop drinking coffee?

However surreal it may appear to you, it is exactly what happened.

What the thief said was quite weird, yes, and that is a word for word quote.

I've been lucky and haven't had a bad experience there, but I'm usually in and out in a few minutes (unless I have to go to the register). At that store I check the suits and that's it, I skip everything else.

Side of the road deal of the week. Will need upholstery attention eventually, but I might just use glue for now.

 

ID help?

Unless this is actually dual branded Wrangler somewhere, then this is just Blue Bell. If it is dual branded then it is significantly more $$. Looks almost like an Alaskan Blanket lining.

Ah, nice finds on the ties! Sounds like all the Hermes goodies were too high! Sadly couldn't make it out much this weekend - had stuff going on that kept me from thrifting.

This is the tag you want to see on the really fun stuff.

Chaps, forgive my noobiness.

If I see an orphan jacket made with Loro Piana fabric, is it worth saving it? This has been sitting for a while. It's a bespoke or MTM by 'Ascot the Tailors'.



post #31109 of 50974

^^Nope. 

post #31110 of 50974

Only thing I've really found in a few days of not really going out. Available. Pretty awesome, though. Definitely one of my favorite finds but not the most expensive.

 

Adidas 1994 world cup reversible raincoat. Really awesome. Would keep if 1 size bigger.
