hahahaha....

so i was at this local thrift shop earlier today killing a little time before heading into work. making my way through the men's long sleeves, casually flipping through them all, taking my time. across the room on a different rack i notice a guy doing the same thing except he's going a bit faster than i am.

i thought it was pretty cool, since i usually don't encounter someone else doing this kind of thing, besides the few times i show up on the morning of a new sale day.

this guy notices me too, i think.

i made my way through the rack and i roll through the few suits they have on this rack, find a couple of cool things, then turn around to look at the sweaters nearby.

this guy definitely notice me. he's moving FAST now. he seems like he's desperately making his way through the racks and i'm just like rotflmao.gif did i threaten you somehow, dude?

i notice the coat rack across the room. there's a few different racks i have to pass in order to get to then. i love the coat rack. the coat rack is my favorite rack to visit in any thrift store. coats are tight.

so i'm making my way to the coat rack and this dude, no joke, he literally hits up the racks that i'm going towards, only going through a few of the things as he makes his way to the racks in front of the way i'm going. this guy is seriously trying to prevent me from getting anything he might want. he leaps to the coat rack before i get to it, desperately going through all of them, clinching to this plaid shirt that happened to be on the rack. i made my way through 6-8 coats when he probably went through 20, of course we meet at some point. and i just stand there waiting for him to move around me, because i sure as hell am not moving for his desperate ass.

never encountered this before. he was actually following me and going through the racks that i was going near before i had a chance.

i couldn't believe it. it was hilarious.

I recently picked up a Zegna Cashco (cotton/ cashmere) corduroy blazer (via eBay). I was just looking for a corduroy jacket that would fit my super-long arms and stumbled across this. It was a bit of a risk with the surgeon's cuffs, but it worked out just right. The jacket is in EXCELLENT condition.
I think it was the best $24.99 I've spent in a long time!

I don't know how or why but okay...

 

Rubber and linen trenchcoat that's a first for me

The Oliver's are so nice 

Also...

And 

 

Authenticity check on these and what's the model there is no script 

 

Both swiss made

 

Both my size 

 

 

I was going to buy this exact watch past weekend for 200 but I got smashed at a wedding and nursed a hangover Sunday.

Found today for 2.99 plus battery $1 from dollarstore

Love when that happens .

I defer to you, sir. I needed 9 years of post-secondary education to make 1/5 of what you pull by selling used clothes.

What I'll never understand is how there is a market to command such prices on these. Anyone here into this style that can explain it to me? (Not referring to the monetary aspect - strictly the styling).

But, slightly more seriously, meditation can help with that stuff. If you're in NY, check http://www.newyorkmeditationcenter.com/, run by a couple of friends of mine. ~20 minutes twice a day can smooth you out a bit--not that you seem to be hurting!

Ha, I actually did something like that to someone else a while back, except I'm less rude. I came into this tiny shop and saw a very well-dressed guy going through the racks. I rarely encounter competitors, so I almost panicked. Then I noticed the five pretty decent-looking blazers he had already put on hold behind the counter. Bastard. At least I snagged a Burberry coat.

I, too, am wondering about the excitement over some of the less 'classic menswear' pieces you guys find. For instance the blue ski jacket I guess you're referring to. And the purple Bugs Bunny sweatshirt the guy with the Eazy E avatar posted. 

 

Are you just personally happy about them, or are they collectible in some circles and highly flippable?
