He then proceeds to take up 1/4 an isle way going through his inventory then proceeds to hand carry the keepers up to the counter and leave the duds in the cart. I dig through his cart and see LL Bean, RLBL, Giorgio Armani, AND left BB Cashmere, vintage made in USA gear, etc.

 

My suspicion is no more.

Looks can be deceiving. I believe someone here recently said the majority** of people we see in the thrift are familiar with mall brands. 

 

Similar story, saw a dude standing at the tie rack for a while, came behind him, Kiton.

Had a cool estate sale experience recently and wanted to share.  Disclaimer: if you're here for the likes of kiton or rlpl feel free to skip.

 

Had the privilege of attending the living estate sale of one of the co-founders of Waffle House.  Being a big Waho fan, I couldn't miss it and thought perhaps he may have some nice suits and shoes as well.  The people running the sale hyped it up a lot making it sound very exclusive and reservation only.  I was able to secure a spot in the first slot of the first day so I was very hyped to say the least, dreaming of all the spoils I was going to score.  When I went in to his closet I quickly realized there were no such spoils to be had and either somebody with connections had got an early sneak peak or, more likely, the guy just didn't spend too much on clothes.  About 20-25 sport coats and suits along with ties and shoes and nothing really worth mentioning.  Too bad because we were the same size shoe and jacket.

 

Anyway, still came home with some cool things:

 

Photo of the original Waffle House (now the site of the waffle house museum) signed by both co-founders.  This was super cool and will probably go up in the house.

 

Waffle house pocket squares!!!

 

Polo

 

New driver for myself (he was a pretty prominent golfer).  If anybody has something similar at a 9.5 degree stiff shaft and wants to trade (this is 10.5 with a flex shaft) let me know.

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Dude has a practice mat in his house 

 

 

 

All in all a cool experience but not very financially profitable (though the signed photo is fairly unique)

haha one day I'll have to try the famous waffle house based off all the love it gets here! The R7 is quite old now but still a good enough club for your weekend warrior.

Yeah, nothing too special but it's still an upgrade for me (casual player).  Been using the same titleist driver for the last 10 years.

I was at a library book sale back in college. It was the last day and books were highly discounted. The sale had just started and I was looking through some books when someone with a garbage bag comes running down the aisle and dumps the entire shelf I was looking at into the bag. Turns out her partner was doing the same. They filled up tons of garbage bags and then spent the rest of the day sorting through them. 

 

¯\_(ツ)_/¯
