When I first started thrifting I found a 100% alpaca Pringle cardigan with a spot on it, put it in the washing machine, 30 minutes later it was in the trash can.

Haha, duly noted. It's not terrible and it's returnable (found it at the Rack for a ridiculous price). I'm mostly concerned about whether it will continue to get worse.

Is this a thing? If so, what is the name of this style of shirt? Couldn't find any of the same shirt or even style but figured my keyword choices weren't any good. RL Polo, made in USA.

In terms of thrifting, Knoxville sucks big fat donkey dicks. Considering a population of almost 200,000, it is by far the weakest mid-size city that I have ever visited.

Two posts in *almost* a row, but I don't care. Got this a couple days ago for $5. It was plugged into the testing area, so I assumed someone had tested and found it to be inoperable. It didn't seem to respond to pushing of buttons, but for an Abe Lincoln, I wasn't passing on B&O. Brought it home and forgot about it for a couple days.

Plugged it in, nothing. Played around with the only buttons and switch I could find, nothing. Downloaded the only manual I could find, doesn't indicate how to turn it on. Seriously, what kind of manual doesn't include THAT info?
Bummed out, I decide I'll just go grab my adapter (it's made for the 30 pin Apple products, not lightning) and plug in my phone to see if that does anything. The moment I plug in my phone, center button lights up and my phone vibrates showing its receiving a charge. Play a song, works beautifully. So ends my novel on getting my working Bang & Olufsen Beosound 8 speaker system for $5.
Definitely NA.

Nice find! Definitely a thing! I'm jelly.

It looks like this one has a couple of repaired holes too. How is yours condition-wise? Could fetch even more!

@Dirt

Amazing what you and others on here can find so quickly. I was pretty sure it was a thing but was coming up dry on my keywords. You'd think mentioning skis would pull something up, haha.

As far as I can tell it is in excellent shape without any holes or damage. All buttons present. Just wrinkled. Will give it another go over when I don't have a sleeping 2 year old on the couch in the same room.

I really didn't want to hit the one store near me today as I know sales bring out the craziness. Glad I did now. All I picked up was this shirt, black label RL and Pendleton Wimminz blazers, two pair of Ferragamo women's heels, and a color block nautica shirt.
Thanks for the amazing sleuthing ability and/or just vast knowledge. I bow to you!

Haha, no problem! Definitely not my vast knowledge but more accurately my vast amount of time spent looking at vintage Polo on ebay lately trying to unravel the mysteries of "that Lo" and I knew that I had seen that exact shirt along the way. Good get, man!
