I'm not sure I agree with this analysis. Could depend on state law and/or civil versus criminal. At the very least, it cannot be that the pocket of someone else's property (be it the store's or mine) is a public place. And as for the buttons thing, the dude meant the spare buttons, in the little baggie. Not the ones attached to the jacket. Either way I've already lost sufficient interest to mount a cogent rebuttal. Plus, nobody's paying my fee.
As for why there are so many lawyers on the thrift thread: a) we don't get paid as much as you think we do; 2) we're smart enough not to pay retail, and d) we're probably one of the few professions that still has to wear the stuff found at these shops on any regular basis.


I wasn't asking why there's so many, just pointing out y'all like to argue... at length... Dig answered this in one word lol8[1].gif

I think the ToJ might even be noob's size

Imagine if you found a ToJ jacket; that would be a $400 flip right there. Or if it were your size, you'd instantly become the most stylish man in your city.

Stopped by one shop today.

Pringle of Scotland Cashmere tagged 44, it's the most ridiculous vibrant cobalt blue color, 3rd picture does it justice. Unfortunately there's a small hole there the tag attaches. Figured it was worth a pick up anyways, available

Someone please tell me this is what I think this is...

The I looked super similar to the Kiton Logo. I remember a while back someone found a kiton sportcoat that everyone identified by the content (not maker) tag. Anyway to tell on ties? It seems feasible.

I'm in the Bay Area. Roughly 45mins from SF in Santa Clara.
I need help finding thrift stores; where are you guys all going?

Right now I only know of Goodwill. Buffalo Exchange is in SF and is too far.

Saw my first corneliani shirt, had to pass because of stains and the $15 price. Came home to look over my dry cleaning and realized they had somehow chipped 5 buttons on the HF presidential blazer I thrifted. I'm hoping they'll cover the cost of having their seamstress next door fix the problem :/
