trying to find the orphans match on ebay however unlikely that is what brand is this again someone said armani black label I thought?
I actually greatly appreciate the reply - I am working on replacing my man-child skate clothes with actual mens clothes, so I am brand new to most of this. I honestly didn't know if putting in the time at Value Village/Salvation time was even worth it - or if you guys simply stuck to off the beaten path thrift stores...
Now knowing that it's more about just taking the time and putting in the hours - I will be hitting the pavement this weekend to scour some shelves :)
Also, I do realize that this thread is simply the good stuff out of thousands of visits, but I still just needed somewhere to start - appreciated.
To the smart ass replies, still appreciated haha, although even at 100 posts a page, youre out of your mind!

Legal weed is a toss up for me, I've never had trouble acquiring potent strains.

Had a long day of waiting for the apt. maintenance guy to arrive and install a new faucet in the bathroom (property mgmt moves fast when you mention a slow leak/potential mold).
Realized it had been a day since I'd hit the shop, and decided to check out my "home base" gw. Slow day of thrifting netted me:Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Rag and Bone shirt (a first for me) and these... Da fuq?
A little research on Chepstow shoes made in England tells me these are C&J's, another first. I think they'll clean up nicely, vibram commando soles aren't that worn.
Then I get a call from the darkest of all matter. "Have to show you something" he says. We meet up and well...
This is me, all 6'2 285 lbs of me to be exact, doing my best Gitmo detainee with a hood over my head impression, but we'll get back to why this jacket is so big in a minute.

Yeah, that's the original security tag's imprint high on the collar (which isn't dirty like it appears).
