He is 6 so they have to be very small.....and very cheap, since he will grow out of them soon.

Hah, my six year old doesn't have clubs. Apparently wants some though, I found him and the next door neighbor kid digging a golf hole under a tree the other day. Then they proceded to use a baseball bat to hit golf balls at it.
As for the "do you tell" question. I tell my friends and family, but it seldom comes up with coworkers. When students ask questions along these lines ("where did you find _____") I usually deflect on suits, shoes, etc., at least early in the semester. On more oddball stuff - cool cuff links or something clearly vintage, I'll say I saw it at a thrift store (even if I actually got it from one of you). Later in the semester, once they've decided who I am, I'm less evasive if they ask, which I've discovered only the thrifters in the class usually are.
Tell them your mom still dress you and you don't know where she get them from! JKJK, lol. I tell folks I get my stuff off of Ebay. The last thing you want is to have some rumors going around the office saying you wear other people's dirty old clothes...come to think of it, that's exactly what we do...Yikes...
As you guys can probably attest, thrifting has grown more of a following and has been more widely acceptible which is why prices have been increasing and more competition arises, im guilty of this
Im not really worried about people starting rumors just dont want people walking into my regular places competing with me lol.
Good call on ebay though.
+1. 40R, 34x34 if someone has a peak lapel, dual vented, flat front tux they want to sell. If not I'm probably going to hit up SuitSupply.
I have 3 pairs of 514's that are my go to jeans. They are already in 3 stages of fading and I keep the darkest pair for social events in which denim is the right choice. I wash them all, however, in Woolite Dark to keep them from getting any lighter. I also wash my black cotton "work uniform shirts" in it and so far, no fading at the edges, cuffs and collar.
No! Don't wash them!
Well, at least not until they smell, which takes a long while.
40x30 body type here, not in jeans though but close. It's all about proportions, and I don't want my legs to look like tree trunks. Also, skinny jeans, especially those from Gap, aren't actually all that skinny. If I want slim/tapered legs, I usually go for the slim fit which actually ends up looking like a straight fit from other brands and in other sizes. They arent ankle huggers so it's not exactly what you are thinking.
This reminds me, why on God's green earth would a company make Skinny Fit jeans for a 40 X 30 body type? Are you freaking kidding me?
Unbelievable, and they even sold.../sigh.
Not much today. Picked up a cast iron skillet at the request of my wife, a set of shoe trees (always in need of more).
Then I saw these:
Levi's 501 redline selvedge, ca. 1969. The real deal.

I'm gonna try and eBay or Etsy these puppies. I wish they fit but that 30x29 tag isn't even close to accurate.
