There was a man there donned in a suit moving hurriedly through the ties. I my mind, I said "This guy is either an EBAYer or a SFer"; I was swayed more to the latter based on his clothing (which fit rather well, albeit not seamlessly - I guessed he'd found a good RtW suit and didn't think it worth it to alter).
Anyhow, I moved to the other side of the tie rack, looking at labels as quickly as I could, hoping he'd not yet gotten to my side or that he'd missed something. He left, taking nothing (and I found nothing, save a nameless Made-in-France tie and a mainline Calvin Klein tie with some damage). He moved to the shirts.
I darted for the jackets, hoping he'd not gotten there first (my hopes seemed to have a good foundation, since the Goodwill opened at 9a.m. and I arrived there at 9:08a.m). Found a blue, windowpaned Canali Proposta SC, but it was damaged and two sizes too big for me. Also found a dark-blue PRL SC, but it looked dated and not worth my $11.
I moved to the shirt rack opposite the one the man was meticulously searching through. I was watching to see if he'd selected anything, but he had not. I moved VERY fast, and made it to the same rack as he, but on the opposite end (which he'd not yet gotten to). I found nothing.
I knew this guy was aware of me, so I gathered the courage to speak (so he wouldn't think I was checking him out or anything). I asked (feeling a bit foolish), "Probably wishful thinking on my part, but are you from StyleForum?" He asked me to repeat, which I did. He replied, "I don't know what StyleForum is". I said, "Ah. I was hoping I knew you". He chuckled condescendingly.
At the end of the day, I snagged a red Boss Black shirt - its pits caked in deodorant. I took it home and was able to save it.
That's my Goodwill adventure.
Still seeking cheap, Band of Outsiders ties (preferably narrow ones).
