The official thrift/discount store bragging thread - Part II (Return to the Thunderdome) - Page 2361

Also snagged some brand new Altra Trail Running shoes during lunch for $20 from an outdoor store that is holding a moving (across the parking lot) sale. Had some sweet Filson Mackinaw and tin cloth jackets left over from their last sale, but the price went up from last time, lol. They even had some Buffalo Plaid Mackinaw hats that I had to restrain myself from buying.

Any 9.5 Altras left? I've been watching for some discounted online.

I think so, but I'll have to check on my way home and let you know. They had three models, the Olympus, Superior, and one other. The one that I got (spacing on which model they were) were $20, I think the other two models were $60 a pair.

 

In general they had some nice deals on a bunch of footwear. They  had a TON of arc'teryx hiking boots (bora model I believe) and approach shoes for around $100 off and a bunch of chacos for 40% off. I think someone else was asking about climbing shoes the other day, they had a table full of them, la sportiva and evolv, around 40% off.

@SpooPoker I hate you (actually I hate what you just posted on your IG) (I actually don't hate either of the things I just said I hate)

 

You're a God.

over the past year or two i've become a true believer in lighter weight denim. Sometime in the 30s or 40s something similar to today happened and there was a sort of weight war among the various denim companies, and they ended up converging on 12 oz or so...

 

before that it was like 8 or 9 oz typically and that's a truly great fabric if well constructed - see the early LVC repros, 1922 501, pantaloon, type I jacket etc.

 

i don't know the end game today, maybe its a race to 40 oz haha. it's kind of a nice exercise to test the bounds of style and function (never forget that the 'modern' jean is really victorian-era workwear), but imo it's kind of a ridiculous gimmick.

I've gotta say, the new label is just awful. Looks cheap to me, something that you'd see on a fake. What were the execs at Polo thinking? Prime example of "If it isn't broke, don't fix it".

I've got bike jeans - I'd trust the Kevlar in those over some heavier weight denim. I've never tried anything as heavy as 22oz but like you say if it stands up by itself, I can't imagine it's comfortable.

I would trust them in a small spill over regular jeans thats for sure.
