+1 This pretty much sums up 99% of my thrift experiences where I am.  It's so *painful*.  Then again, I'm guessing this is true for lots of people here.  I like to think I have a good eye, but I have to travel a moderate distance to find places with decent men's stuff... c'est la vie.

It is not just a movie; it is a real place.  If you're in ATL and you are into opiates, crack, getting arrested, and/or getting robbed or worse, you should go there.

A proper tux has no vents. If you're going to wear a vented tux, might as well cap it off with notch lapels, a pre-tied bow tie, black sneakers, OCBD, and one of those business cards with a pre-folded piece of satinique stapled on the top to look like a pocket square.

A side vented tux is a perfectly acceptable alternative to a ventless one. I don't like ventless jackets. Period.

Without the pants, I guess it's now a smoking jacket. wink.gif

I would guess that this thing never had pants. Just a guess

Lol ATLnoob, that actually looks like smack to me... based on pic probably worth quite a bit over 100. Could've been a good hit if you were willing to move it hahahaha.

You can buy a condo for a dollar there. Of course, the thrifting equivalent of this would be buying a pair of piss stained 1988 Duck Head pants with a crab infestation for $1.

What a 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.

+1 on allowing shipping to Asia. Someone in Japan will pay big bucks for those!
