I could see that resemblance. He's not the worst comic ever...heh, so thanks! I wanted to finally wear that polo and we were going to what is essentially an opera house (though most people were dressed pretty dumpy as it was a Fiona Apple show) so I figured I'd wear something somewhat formal.

Just like you said, basics. I found this blazer at a thrift for $3 and didn't even grab the identical one next to it because black blazers are pretty limited in my mind. It was the perfect opportunity to try Uniqlo and I feel it fits the bill for a piece of clothing you could lose and not bat an eye. The cut is great, but it's not even at the level of a J crew jacket, maybe more along the lines of an H & M? Though I feel that this particular blazer is more substantial than H & M cotton blazers I've tried on.

Heh, it's ironic and depressing you use that pic as the tragic shooting that happened at the Aurora theatre two days ago is 15 miles from where I'm sitting. I'd hope I wasn't being Jokerish in my expression!

Oh yeah no offense meant at all, I'm a big fan of his podcast. I think it's mostly the furrowed brow and glasses.

You've tried multiple angles of light shining in there to maybe catch a different indentation? Does the other shoe offer any other clues? Can you tell I'm a dork and love figuring this sort of thing out, especially when it involves getting to pull info out of an image? (cue "let's enhance" video from YouTube).

So I just lost about 1 1/2 hours of my life I will never get back. Doing what?

Well, you know that massive jewelry box I thrifted to hold the increasingly insane collection of cufflinks I have thrifted? Ummm, I dropped it. I only broke two links, strangely/fortunately they were matching links. And I can't find one link. Well, the accident allowed me to get better organized and get a total count ...for now. 163 pairs total.

 

 

18 new were added today. EDIT: All but Green Pair have been SOLD700

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

 

Also found 3 ties, Zegna, Nordstrom, Brooks Brothers

700

Also thrifted a comlete set of golf clubs for my wife, They came with bag, $40+ worth of new balls, nike golf shoes, sunscreen, two divot tools, 50+ tees, newish pull cart.

All for $10. Then I found $2.50 in one of the pockets of the bag.

The other shoe has the same outline, but less pronounced, with no indication of lettering at all. This kind of thing drives me nuts too. I can't possibly list them until i know, that's just me.

At last it's organized now lookaround.gif I don't know how you find SOOO many. I find a few and buy even fewer as the places that have them want $5-$15 a pair and most are only so-so looking censored.gif
