Those DVN boots are pretty hideous. They're my size so I'd take one for the team if they're looking for a home.

I've learned that the hard way multiple times. Just ended up re-donating because once you disclose that in a listing it's not really worth it. 

 

I would compare it to buying a fused suit that is starting to bubble.

You could probably dump it off at a place like Buffalo Exchange. Their workers may be dumb enough to not notice :hide:

I'm not saying I'd do this but people buy them in this condition to bring to a Patagonia store and get a replacement item/store credit

Did you personally apply the 7th?:devil:

JK, not questioning your ethics.

I wonder if BB will replace BBBF with something similar?

Yeah it's not a total lost cause. 

 

I thrifted a North Face jacket that had a similar issue. The material would flake off and make a mess any time I wore it. I cut the lining open and scraped out every bit of the flaky stuff and now it's a fine wearable jacket. Probably not the same functionality wise, but being in socal i'm not really concerned about that.

If I had access to print my own TJ Maxx/Marshall's clearance stickers that would surely be a frightening test of my ethics. 

 

I actually found these on a trip to Los Angeles awhile ago, which surprised me. I would imagine there would be someone in LA who would recognize Black Fleece and buy those for cheap, but they just kept getting marked down. 

 

Perhaps they were accidentally in the women's section for a long time. I found them on a clearance rack by the front door.

That Board Shirt is definitely Fueco-approved... I have that exact plaid. Good stuff.

Paid another visit to the hole in the wall store where I found the suede Brioni this weekend.  Damn wrote this place off a year ago and its 5 minutes from my house.  Something changed.
