Thanks for the answer, the jeans were a lot more than $5, so I left it. Today was a total bust, nothing worth picking up.

To top it off, all the ties at the Value Village have the price tags through the ties themselves ffffuuuu.gif I really want to grab the manager and tell him WTF!

I suggest you never leave black label behind unless it's shredded. The name will help it sell.
I know I shouldn't, but I pass. A lot. Not as much as Brooks Bros, but a lot. I guess something inside feels weird about making the same money as Samuelsohn without the quality.

Clearly red is a theme. As is silk (though the actual silk was fine in my experiment; it just didn't hold the dye), and other items other than dress shirts. I've had mixed results with wool, but the reds seem to be the issue (in my case, the red that was part of the final gray color leeched out).

My new rule is that dress shirts go in the main bath, and anything else goes in its own bath in a smaller, side container filled from the main bath.

Let me SPOILER that for you. PLS PPL, USE SPOILER!

Question for the group: Found my old Sambas yesterday. Straight up from the 1990s. Decent condition, but some lining problems; the uppers are actually fine. Is that worth any money? Also, anyone have interest in a crate full of vinyl? I assume it's not worth the shipping, but if someone is local, there's no WAY I'm going to do anything with it. Nothing earth-shattering; mostly 80s stuff.

I'm not sure, I just sold some for €15...I was happy with that, but I could see how others wouldn't be.

What do you mean by "80's stuff?"

There is good 80's stuff (icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif) and then there's the 80's stuff that EazyE listens to (shog[1].gif).

They're certainly worth the investment if you think you will ever wear one or whether you will want to sell them at an incredible markup biggrin.gif
We've lost a lot of hatmakers in the past few years and we're about around 12-15 hat stores in the city, I'm sure down significantly from recent history. shog[1].gif

A great idea in theory, but where in the world would you store them?

At a "thrift" store in Boston

I rarely ever see hats, and never in my size. 7 1/2 is hard to come by.

For any watch guys, I received a 1955 Hamilton Stormking V today. Purchased on eBay at much higher than thrift store prices, but a third of what they normally close at thanks to an awesomely low BIN. I have been hunting this watch for two and a half years, and its actually what started my journeys into thrift stores an men's style.

Many high quality hats are actually collapsible. If not, on top of dressers, hat racks, I'm not sure shog[1].gif I'm actually making a bunch of hat stands for my own hats, others get stacked together and stored in a closet.
