Thanks, over a couple weeks. Left out some other things, but that was a good amount of it.

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?


What does him working at an orphanage has to do with anything? What a fucktard.

you know what to do. . .

 


into the suit rack. :slayer:

 

He's stealing not only from the store, but from YOU. put your big boy pants on, and let him know he's on your turf. you do this to make money, and if he's broke? he can learn to make money. legit money. either way, he can take it or leave it. it's your turf. so tell him what's up.  giving him a leg up might fix the problems you both have. - you get your space back, albeit with a legit competitor.so man up. do it right.

 

or. you need to get Vinnie Jones on that douche.

My order from @thebuddahman came in this morning. I bought the Chanel tie, The Lightweight Harris Tweed patch pocket blazer and Italian made Hackett orphan, he then throws in some Hackett chinos, a Samuel Windsor 7 fold tie and a copy of 'The Chap' magazine.

 

Fuck yes. :slayer:

How does a thief get away with a duffle bag of stuff in a thrift store? Seems noticeable.

Easy... The employees intentionally look the other way.

No identifying marks of any kind. Seems like there are a lot of knockoffs out there, but these are relatively heavy and seem nicely made. Comfortable as hell, too. And my wife doesn't hate them -- as long as we cover them in something other than leather. 

 

I had actually been looking at the same chair at a consignment/antique/hipster shop. I think they had it listed at $350 or something.

damn right. i still have a feeling that he would still nick it all even if he did learn to thrift.

This is the only positive, he takes all that crap but one the other hand he would also take all the polo and tommy.

yep, not because they're in on it but because they're just volunteers who don't want any confrontations.

just you keep your flappy mouth shut.

 

actually in my neck of the woods it's pretty amazing to see what some of these clerks put up with. recently watched a guy working solo in a GW foil 3 theft attempts in about 20 min. i asked him about it and he laughed, apparently it's just a super routine part of the job. the clerk also has face tattoos btw. 

 

the other week (different spot) i watched a lady ask to see something out of the case and then fucking walk out with it. the clerk goes outside and is like "hey that's not yours i just pulled it out of the case so you can look at it" and then there was a whole back and forth and finally the clerk was like "whatever. don't come back". 

 

i once had a homeless guy complain how hard it was to steal from GW. he was asking me what i thought the best approach was to steal these pants. he was going on and on bitching about the prices. of course in reality he was asking me to buy him a pair of pants. i was like "yeah whatever you think is best guy" and walked off and sure enough 5 minutes later some other dude is paying for his pants. lol.

 

people will say anything and most people will believe anything. the clerks near me are so hardboiled at this point none of this shit phases them. i dunno about the shops run by volunteers tho. they'd probably call the cops lol.

Stealing from a thrift shop is such a piece of shit thing to do
