Went to a different GW today that writes the prices of the shirts right on the maker's tag   GRRR...

Our Goodwill outlet is literally a few blocks from the Mexican border. I went there once probably 5 years ago. Walked through the door and saw all these ladies elbowing each other and fighting for every crap piece of clothing. I'm assuming they wanted stuff to sell across the border, or give to family, etc. I stood in the doorway for a few seconds, glanced around, and then hit the road, never to return again.

This is awesome, but I don't feel like storing things until fall. Available. Can't find a size tag but it's 23" p2p.

Yeah, that about sums up my one and only experience there. A friend who went with almost got his hand cut up when he tried to pick up a pair of Red Wing boots off the floor. Apparently those were part of one guy's pile.

Found a few things today.

Haven't found shell in forever. Florshiem Imperial PTB V-cleats. 11 D. Available.

I found a rather fetching fair isle jcrew sweater at my local outlet, then an addict threw up on my air max 90s. Fuck those places

I found an empty beer bottle in the shoe bin of our outlet. Not sure if it was for sale.

Paid up for these (but still well under 10%). I briefly thought I could somehow rock these, but that was a terrible idea so I have some questions about the demand of these things.

 

Givenchy NWOT Black Jeans w/ Lambskin accent, zippered legs, etc. 

 

 

More questions about these and more images (Click to show)

What sort of demand is out there for these? Is it domestic demand? East coast or West? I looked on eBay, but the only thing I was seeing was some "best offer accepted" and I have no idea what that number was.

You should go, I went to the one in Nashville. Just search for "Goodwill Outlet" near you, there are probably a bunch.

I'm really jealous of these suits you dudes in MN find. I'm on a bad dry spell for suits & sport coats. The other day I got excited  because I found a made in china BB 1818 sport coat. That's how bad my luck has been. We've got plenty of Hawaiian shirts though. If I liked those I'd be a lucky man. Damnit.

At ours I found a non-empty "tobacky" dugout and bat for 25 cents.

I'm going to try out a couple more locations soon, but the one I checked out had A LOT of great clearance items, I was just in a bit of a hurry, so I had to run.

Any 42L Keis?

I only found one (56/46L), but I've seen them at several locations over the last year or so. It's worth popping into a few stores if you have a chance.

Spoo, I'm somewhat relieved that none of those are my size. Freaking incredible.
