I thought I would share a funny/embarrassing story that happened to me today while thrifting. I went to a goodwill before work to see what I could find and went through my usual rounds not coming up with much. I usually hit the ties last and this particular gw puts the ties on a lower rack so I have to bend over in order to sort through them. As I'm bending over I hear the unmistakable tearing sound of me ripping the seat of my pants. I'm not talking a tiny rip either, the rip occurred from the bottom of the belt loop to almost the bottom of the crotch. So here I am in goodwill with my left cheek exposed. Any sane person would have scooted out of the goodwill since needless to say this scenario is pretty embarrassing. However, I found a pair of Salvatore Ferragamo shoes and was not about to leave the store without my purchase. There was only one person working the cash register so I had to wait in line for a good ten minuets with about a half dozen people waiting in line behind me. There was no way I could hide or even conceal the fact that I had split my trousers and I could feel everyone behind me staring at my buttock. Having said all that, here are the pictures of the Ferragamo's.

 

Size 8D Available

Hopefully someone either here or on the bay is interested since I practically mooned half the goodwill waiting in line for them. Also here is a picture of my ripped pants just so you all have an idea of the severity of my situation. The pants were Odin for Target that I have only worn a handful of times and ironically was pretty much the only item of clothing I was wearing that wasn't thrifted. I hope you all got a good laugh out of my story.

iirc, this union label is the one that predates that. edit: This website confirms that this label was 62-76 this website This tag was from a brooks pow check SC i posted several days ago, later to find it has moth holes and i couldn't pass it on in good conscience.
i am gonna try to make a tie out of it. if successful, i will the share my results with a person who i trade/sell to as a surprise. should i do a bow-tie or a necktie? i have already done bowties before, but never in wool.

also...

$5.99 (le sigh)... Well, there was a spot on the shoulder that I'm not sure would have come out, and it was on the front facing side of it no less, pretty noticeable. Also, and this isn't a determining factor for me at all usually, I didn't hear much if anything here on it being decent/any feedback on it, so I decided to pass. Great color combo, pretty sure it went back out before I left and it was already in someones cart. May look for it again tomorrow if I take back some of tonight's haul haha. Stay tuned.

I was on a roam team during Janet Jackson's velvet rope tour show at my venue and had to hop over a row of seats to get to someone. As one foot landed the other caught momentarily on a part of the chair. Heard the same sound, same result. Other team members were rolling on the ground laughing. Instead of letting me go home, my boss handed me a few safety pins and said good luck.

Did you buy yourself a thrift trap house to do all your work out of?

Distinguishing those and '49-'62 can be a pain, as the spot with/without the ® can end up under fabric.
