OMG one of the best thrift days, evah. Among the pile, Incotex cords!!!! Are you kidding me? If you give me the unicorn pic, oh well, I wish I had time tonight to brag/post pics/all that stuff (although I am wondering if the lovely Isaia Napoli mint suit size IT64/drop 8L will have any takers...even Spoo says he hasn't ever seen one THAT big....any of you guys want pix or whatevah, PM me, I'll swap or sell for cost because it's a beautiful thing that should NOT go for cheap on eBay, it deserves a loving home).
Real reason I am poasting...discussion the other day between me and another local thrift denizen (friend, every bit the trad clothing diehard we are, would love to have him hang here but I haven't yet twisted his arm, he would LOVE you guys):
- Him: I couldn't believe what happened at Savers the other day.
- Me: Whut?
- Him: I was competing with a family for a nice Zegna suit my size.
- Me: Oh?
- Him: Yeah. Perfect! It was new-ish, too, not the old 1980s crap.
- Me: What was the deal?
- Him: They were looking for a suit to bury some relative in. My logic was, they could have a perfectly decent looking Dior Monsieur or whatever, it's not like they needed it for the next 20 years, right?
- Me: Word. That sucks.
Do you agree? Are we being a-holes about this? I know, ethical discussions bore some poasters but...this has been on my mind a few days and I wanted to put it to you guys for group moral judgment.
