Oh, and got my SS package Tben -- I'm not sure if I can wait to open it, but I suspect I know what one item is, and I'll like it!  fistbump.gif

I hope you enjoy! It appears I didn't go as hard as cotton dockers, who apparently gifted Ian thousands of dollars retail in clothing, but I gave it a shot. Seriously cotton, those would be my best finds of the year. Super generous. That is what Christmas is all about right?

Seriously, I haven't seen a single one of those brands in a thrift and he GAVE them away.  Mind blown.

+1. The only Rag and Bone I have seen is in an outlet. Still well out of reach.

Picked these up for myself tonight at above thrift prices but still a good price especially considering they're new w/o tags.

I may go back tomorrow and swap the above out for these... Keds x Mark McNairy, because they had them in my size as well for the same price.

For real, makes my package look like shit, which, by the way, will be in the mail tomorrow. shog[1].gif

OK. Number one thrifting pet peeve. It's not volume flippers, loud and crazy people, non-showerers, people who insist on testing stereos by playing them at max volume for way too long... none of that.

 

Number one pet peeve is rich assholes who donate their destroyed clothes to these stores, where they sit and clog up shelf space for weeks. Had to pass on a gorgeous Isaia suit in my size because of a dime-sized hole in the sleeve and a Paul Smith jacket because of two rips in the back.

 

Do people just think charities are their personal garbage bins? Or that the poor will wear anything, no matter how damaged? Or are they just thinking about their tax returns? Whatever it is... gah.

 

 

 

 

Having said all that, pretty good day. Couple Kiton shirts, some APC jeans, some Pantherella socks. Not bad at all.

I'm glad I'm not the only one!  Found one dated but awesome thing, but if even EazyE says cotton dockers was crazy generous, I think that makes me feel better (or worse?).

Yeah, I used to donate stuff in way worse condition than what I do now.  Now it's mostly because of old styling or poor quality or poor fit, not because it's trashed (although I used to).  Sifting through garbage at thrifts has made me appreciate that old addage: "Don't treat the poor poorly."  Of course, on the other hand we have Sandy and the Lawndale High Fashion Club in Daria, where after donations are filtered by their high standards, all that is left to donate are a belt and a pair of go-go boots.  I do suspect that tax writeoffs do play a part, though.

But yes, why is it that whenever I find Burberry, it is not recent and has scores of moth holes... Or rather, "I don't always find good stuff, but when I do, it's (almost) always orphaned or trashed."

Bro, thanks! That Polo is sick booty nausty! Functional sleeves with all the casual details. Too bad, doesn't fit me...Too long in the sleeves and overall length. Should fit you though. You just need to get it cleaned.
