A lot of people here are probably like me...it's a hobby and you hope like hell something will fit, but if you can't leave it, you try to make a trade within the thread. I go out hoping to find anything....whether that means something for myself, something to trade or something to flip. I prefer the first two over the last any day.

Also found yesterday before the Barbour coat was this vintage LL Bean masterpiece (pretty sure not available, we'll see). If this had said RRL on the inside, I probably would have gotten a month's rent for it.
I half expected that I'd need to knife fight my way out of hipsterville with this under my arm, but luckily that was avoided. Weighs a ton, big metal patterned buttons. Better shots when I bring it in from the car (it's raining and well, you know, I might melt or something).
Re: the Barbour, anyone familiar with this logo? Scuse the thread.
M ranch party? Was this a prize at a party at a ranch? 1%er party favor? Trying to make sense of it. It's embroidered tone on tone on the flap of the pocket on the left side. It's so dark and low on the jacket that I didn't even see it last night. I don't know why I thought it was fake, must have been in denial - it has that waxwear smell/feel. Also, I swore it was black, but the areas where the wax didn't take/flex spots show that it's most certainly brown.
I've found one like this a few months back. I was gonna cop but found a few moths holes.
I think most people on here buy for themselves if they come across good quality stuff their size. They also buy good stuff not their size to either trade or flip on Ebay. A few people on here have made a career out of flipping...Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
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 I really want to grab the manager and tell him WTF!
My dude. I sold a black label Armani suit for $129 on zebay. I probably could've squeezed out more. It was "dated" as it was unvented, but they probably have some models in this most recent collection that are unvented. It's not necessarily a dated detail; it's just not in vogue. I suggest you never leave black label behind unless it's shredded. The name will help it sell.
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.
(foreshadowing my find post)
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.
As an FYI, as the hat wearing-generation dies, we're at the end of what's been a bumper crop of hats in thrifts/flea markets. That being the case, if you're willing to invest in the futures market (in a thrift manner), start grabbing quality hats you find. I'm sure that in 5-10 years, they'll become incredibly scarce. 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
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.
A great idea in theory, but where in the world would you store them?
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.
