this weeks haul. have no energy to take pics of all the shirts, maybe later this weekend. my two cents about RG shirts: while I could never pull off wearing one, I do appreciate all the detailing that goes into their shirts. I also appreciate that when you find and list them, they sell within 24 hours usually. i've noticed too that the bigger the size, the faster it goes.

RG x 6, 3 sold already

Hit the women's section as mens was dry. Don't often have enough time to hit both in same visit, but first thing I see hanging off end of rack is Mountain Hardwear ski/snow stretch pants, women size Large.

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

I don't usually grab Boss, but the fabric of this SC is amazing. My size, so NA. My question is has anyone had success turning an unvented SC into a single or double vented?

Next store, ran into another thrifter on way in. Chatted for a minute, then he made beeline to ties. he zigged, i zagged and went straight to suit rack. It is double sided, so I started on side closest to door. Other thrifter came up about a minute after I started, said ties were same crap that has been there for last 3 weeks. He jumped to other side. So glad he didn't start at other end of my side and work towards me. 3/4 way through rack and I would have sworn I was at Jos. A Bank. Then I hit this pocket. First grab 100% Linen Canali SC, still has tag sewn onto arm but appears to have been worn. Is that a thing? like leaving tags on your BB cap?

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

Then a Canali suit, Blue glen plaid, 48R, single pleat pants

Street style guys... Is this anything? Picked it up to be safe. Looking online but most sites I'm finding this brand/label on are in other languages. Givenchy Paris tag.

I'm sure this has been discussed ad nauseum, but do a lot of you guys do it? Seems.... Not right to me, but what do I know.

Are you asking if Givenchy is a thing or that particular piece? Givenchy is definitely a thing. I know nothing about that specific piece though.

Also lol at impunutra.

When I was in high school, I stole a haircut. I needed one bad, to get a part time job, but had zero dollars. So I got the cut and told the barber I needed to meet my sister across the street at Walgreens to give me the money. And I never went back. I did get a job, washing dishes and bussing tables at Ponderosa Steak House, and it was the worst job I've ever had. Horrible. So hopefully, in the scheme of how the universe works, we're even. But if you were a barber in Madison WI and a kid stole a haircut from you, HMU. I got your 8 bucks now.

Also, no, one should not return thrift store items back to the original store for a "refund".
