From our deck last night when the storm ended. That's a ruler stuck in the snow there in the middle of the picture. There's about 1-1 1/2" of snow that blew around as well when the winds picked up.

You're making me jealous. At least I can, hopefully, wear warm clothes when I go visit the family for Christmas.

Got it. I didn't see a size tag, but putting it on it feels like a medium. I'll post measurements tonight. It is available.

Just put in the time and be patient. The hauls you see are the rarity, most people here put in some serious time to be "lucky" when the right donation hits the rack at the perfect time. There are also a ton of flippers in South Florida. I am not sure if more than any other area of the country, but definitely a lot. Any "maybe" item is gone half a day later.

Look out then.....I just got back from the thrift....a few plaids. You may want to avoid SF tomorrow. lol.

post #56805 of 112867

Most interesting stuff about last weekend was what I left behind:

 

  • Never imagined I'd walk away from an Oxxford in good condition at GW, but this double-breasted solid gray beast had the ugliest peak lapels I've ever seen and was marked at $50 to boot.
  • A dark gray Belvest double-breasted wool & cashmere sports coat, marked at $18, with mercifully smaller lapels but which just didn't look right for some reason. I couldn't put my finger on it; it just looked "off". (My wife hated both this one and the Oxxford so that clinched it.)
  • A good looking pair of Allen Edmonds cap toes in my size, marked at $20. Good looking until I turned them over and saw some kind of rubber orthopedic device grafted into the right one that raised it about 1/4 inch. How they came up with $20 is beyond me. Unless northern Virginia is filled with guys with short right legs. Maybe AE could refurbish them?

 

Picked up a couple nice looking light weight Burberry suits that fit me very well. (Not especially brag worthy but I likes 'em.) One had a "UNITE!" union label, which surprised me: I didn't know that any Burberry suits were made in the U.S. Anyone know more about who makes/made Burberry suits?
