Every time I see one of their recent pieces it feels like a million bucks, but I always put back downs as the comps don't seem to do well consistently. Almost had one in my size, all is have to do was cut my arms off at the elbow

That could be a mistake, as nicer, European-sized pants may slip through your grasp. (Like I'm an EU 48, so will at least check the 48-ish area. In my experience, these pants stick around longer, too, as people think they're mis-sized or just don't check).

That said, I've moved, and have found exactly nothing out here. NOTHING!

That thought has actually crossed my mind many times and so I usually do a quick pass at the end of the rack as well :fistbump:

 

Forgot to grab a pic but snagged a pair of these today, had never heard of it previously but looked nice and were barely used, comps on eBay looked great:

Yeah. Seemed to be one guy's shirt collection ranging from J Crew through Cucinelli. Couldn't find anything in any other area so hopefully there's more.

Been hearing rumors from both customers and employees that they have been hoarding everything and sending all the good stuff to their e-commerce site. That's a good sign that some stuff is still making it to the floor. Maybe it finally got through to them that they need to toss us a bone once in a while to keep us coming back. laugh.gif

Was at a thrift location lastnight, and felt disgust as I picked through the racks of sport jackets/blazers, to find almost every other one, had the tags ripped out of them (even the sewed in ones).  I'm guessing, they got a bunch of stuff from one person/location, that did this?  Not sure why.  That store was a bust.

I think people do this before they donate to deter flippers. That's my theory.
