Are you a valet? Why would he ask you to drive his car? What am I missing in this story....sounds awesome though.

Nope. Last night we went out for my birthday dinner. While waiting for a table we were sitting at the bar and Ric comes up and asks if I'd do an errand for him. He been had a few glasses of wine So Obvioulsy I couldn't say anything other than "hell yea, anything for Ric flair" and then he threw me the keys to that machine and sent me on my way

Cool!

 

 

SIDE NOTE: Still looking for some nice SMALL (obviously) leather winter gloves. If anyone comes across a pair I have $$$ for you. Thanks!

everyone on here gets hard-ons over old-ass high-end labels, when in reality they'd probably look better by walking into j crew and plunking down $400 or whatever for a made in china suit.
EDIT: watch the Put This On video where Jesse goes thrifting with the Street Etiquette dudes. i'd bet money that those SE dudes would s**t all over (almost) anyone in this thread in terms of style, but one thing that stood out to me is the fact that they gave exactly zero f**ks about labels. all they cared about was whether or not the piece looked cool and whether or not it would fit correctly after tailoring.

True, it was more like I thought I found like a Corneliani Linea Sartoriale and then found out that I actually picked up just a regular Corneliani or something. Still a great find, but just a tinge of disappointment. I do agree that the SE dudes have the right idea in mind in terms of fit / tailoring, but at the same time since we're thrifting might as well try for the quality in terms of construction and brands biggrin.gif

Boss is my bread and butter. I am always amazed on how I have trouble moving quality stuff, but even the most unremarkable Boss always sells

That's funny you say this because the tie looks like it has a butthole and sperm pattern on it.

If I wanted a stranger to park my expensive car, the last place I would check is at the bar.

Were you with an attractive girl/date? This is an old trick that some guys do to get a girls number or get a beej. I know Dennis Rodman and he used to do something similar, guys would be star struck and he'd have them move his car somewhere that took 10-15 minutes because he was drunk. By the time the guy came back, his girl was 5cm dilated.

I just found some Vivienne Westwood pants today, as luck would have it!  I'll post some pics of them and my haul tomorrow.
