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".

 

Thrifted a steam mop sealed in box from a store that didn't let you test or return. Returned to Wal Mart for the same model that actually worked and saved ~$120 in the process. Then again, Wal Mart isn't exactly the most beloved business in the world.

Robert Graham sportcoat:

 

 

And project Etro tie, 58" x 3.75".  Stained at the bottom front. My dry cleaner couldn't get the discoloration out. Could be sent away to one of those tie-repair places and shortened about 1.5".  Please, somebody pay me shipping to take this off my hands and make it a handsome piece of neckwear.

I know you're retired but why even bother to enter a thrift store if you're going to leave current model Brioni suits? Is there something very specific you're looking for in thrift stores these days?

Thrift store prices on brioni suits. Goodwill wanted 200 to 500 each. Obviously the manager looked them up. Would you pay that? I won't I wouldn't pay that if they were kiton vicuna or tom ford staring me in the face all in my size. The price has to be there or you just have to simply set it down and walk away. I offered to buy them all at 125 each she looked at me and laughed and said no way. Then proceeded to take them all in the back.

If they were NWT I may have pulled the trigger.I feel better that someone might get a nice suit they could never afford at retail at a decent price and rock the shit out of it.
