The official thrift/discount store bragging thread - Page 3891

post #58351 of 110694

sorry to again de rail the thread but...

throughout my trades and dealings with all of you I have acquired quite a few nice items (most of them shirts) that just don't quite fit, mostly the sleeves are too short or a couple other problems but I was wondering if you all would be okay with me selling them to afford some modern tailor mtm shirts in a couple staple colors and a couple other items. I didn't trade/buy these from you with the intent of flipping them for a quick profit they just have for one reason or another not panned out. I would hate to upset one of you guys by you browsing eBay and coming upon one of the items you traded with me being sold.

so do I have your approval?

and again

MERRY CHRISTMAS EVE!

I haven't been thrifting in a couple weeks and I go to 1 store today and hit a nice score:

2 ferragamo ties 1 Hermes tie
John Varvatos suit blue 40r with 33 pants
Gucci and I believe a good Christian Dior shirt. Anyone know if this is the one I want?

Nothing too great, but picked up this pretty awesome Paul Stuart (recent 3 city) shirt. I usually leave these behind as they seem to do even worse then Slim Fit Brooks Brothers shirts (not really sure why) but this one was too cool.

This pic contains nothing thrifted, but it is definitely bragging. Mele Kalikimaka!

SeaJen has hooked me up with some great things. He is a very generous guy. In addition, he also passed along some great life advice. It has been my pleasure getting to know him this year. Again, Happy Holidays to everyone and thanks for a great year of selling and trading me cool stuff and for all of the knowledge. Also, big thanks to spoo! I received a package from him the other day and found a beautiful treasure inside.

Merry Christmas Bay Area... This is Harris Tweed at the Milpitas Walmart.
post #58359 of 110694

Lol, what is the price on those?

post #58360 of 110694
Frohe Weihnachten!

Buon Natale!

Merry Christmas!

Hope everyone has a happy and safe holiday!

A big thanks to everyone this year that's contributed to this thread. I've had a blast reading through everyone's finds and have gained a lot of insight along the way. A special thanks to everyone with whom I've made trades and gotten to know. I'm happy with everything I've let go and have gotten in return.

I'd also like to thank the heavy-hitters here that take the time to enlighten everyone from beginners to seasoned pros. Brianpore, Capnwes, Spoopoker, Mexicutioner, VLSI, GMMcL, et al. Tonight, we watched Ist das Leben nicht schön? (It's a Wonderful Life) and Kevin, Allein zu Haus (Home Alone). I have the next couple of weeks off from work and will move into our new apartment and make big plans for 2013.

Here's to hoping for big finds in the next year!

Those of you who are anti-Walmart, look away... Here's the charcoal gray Harris Tweed at Walmart. It's actually very nice, but buying it would take the fun out of looking for a $5 one at a thrift shop that doesn't need the sleeves shortened!

That jacket looks roughly 1 size too large on you
(to my eye, anyway)
post #58364 of 110694

I never implied otherwise, broham.  was merely agreeing with acosby's suspicion that none of your finds are thrifted, which is, of course, just fine.
