I'm assuming I fit "thank the parents" in there somewhere? And do I really have to hit on the little sister and dowager aunt too?

Simple enough at an Irish wedding, though I doubt my girlfriend would appreciate it.

Congrats Spoo! Damn.

If I didnt buy it, they would have donated it and I would have paid a fuckton more than this at the thrift. Makes you wonder about the shit you miss though… the places that don't hire a sale company and shit. Gives me the chills.

I'm glad I passed on that Samuelsohn suit earlier, as I later found these...all my size...on 1/2 off day. Meant to be...







Broken collar button on this one but has spares attached so I'll sew replacement on.



I like how Jack Lipson shirts fit me.

Isn't that kind of like saying, "don't these wholesalers know that if they sell the items individually they can make a lot more money?" Estate sellers aren't consignment shops.

The relatives bring in the estate sellers because they just want the stuff gone, and are happy to get whatever they can for it. Don't know if you've ever dealt with a major move or cleaning out an estate, but it is not a fun job, and by the end, you're just happy to have someone else taking the stuff out of there for you.

You're welcome

I think I had something to do with starting this pleat conversation. :bigstar: I'm back...

and also fwiw pleats are just another perfectly legitimate tailoring solution. i like ff fine, but i think that lower rise ff is a little overdone and comes off as somewhat immature. i like a natural waist and pleats is one way to get there. i also tend to agree that for standup fabrics, chinos etc pleats don't really work. to each their own. 

PSA on sneakers check out your local sports authorities gentleman. Shoes are 20-40% off. I don't anticipate any of the good ones to last. Especially if you're a sports type of guy; cleats can be had for $10-20.

Sometimes just want to clear the space fast. If someone is willing to buy it out it could be easier than to move all of the crap out later.

I was thinking the same thing. The ones around here don't budge on pricing and price stuff really high.

Sometimes I check the thrift thread and feel fine. 

 

Other times I check the thrift thread and see spoo continue to dominate so hard that it makes me just slowly shut the laptop.
