Georgia Ave Thrift Store in D.C. is pretty cool, they typically have good stuff.  Picked up a pair of nice black BB Wool trousers there just this past weekend for around $5 among other things, I'm too lazy to upload pics though but maybe one day.  Unique Thrift in Falls Church is a MUST.  Especially on Mondays (everything 25% off).

He's murdering you in the "fanciest brother" category.

Yup, but it was I that taught him the difference between good stuff and bad stuff laugh.gif

Just like poker, I mean heck, I remember when I first taught my wife how to play Texas holdem, we have a party with guests, I am the expert, and she cleans the clock. It seemed like every single time she was in the pot and actually betting, the bet was not a bluff and she had a stone cold good hand. She remains the only person I have ever met that managed a straight flush in an actual card game. Beginners luck, I dont know!?

Oh yeah, she had no beginners luck when I taught her how to play Chess though lol8[1].gif

Found this yesterday, was going to post until DM7 had his clothesgasm all over this thread, but now that that's all cleaned up, here it is. All my other wintercoats will be sold this coming winter and replaced with this:

The only downside is living in Florida, I'll get maybe two and a half chances to wear it.

Jo, I also found that the generic Universal-Lederbalsam works well.
My jar is brown, but I think it's the same:

I own quite a few expensive conditioners, Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
but some cheap alternatives work well. I pay more attention to ingredients now.
Fritz, have any plans for your day off (or Fenstertag)?

wieso und wofür?

no plans. weather is bad and it is damn cold. will take care of my shoes. deliver one pair to a good friend and have a try on on friday with a cool dude. that's it.
drinking is never a plan.

So I have exactly $50. What should I pick up with my $50?

a. Black, recent Gucci blazer for $50. I fit it, but I've got a lot of black blazers, although this fits better.
b. Black, recent Luciano Barbera Sartoriale blazer for $60 (by borrowing from my girlfriend). I fit it, but lapels are a wee wide for my taste.
c. Awesome Cucinelli shirt that'd I wear everyday for $40.

If it was someone on here, that would be the best prank ever. Trolling for exports.

That's amazing. You might need to make some trips north during the winter just for the chance to wear it.
