Most on here won't care, but been a sneakerhead for a long time, and these are more than flippable.

Be careful with Jordan's. I found two pairs last year...I got dinged because the guy who bought them said they were fake.

Yeah no I've been collecting Jordans and sneakers in general for about 8 years so luckily I can tell the difference. 99% of them I see in thrifts are fake.

I figure I should PSA this if anyone is interested. Sorry if it was already done. Ralph Lauren Sale extra 30% off. Use this code BZR2956 for an extra 10%. This makes wool sweaters between 28-38 dollars. http://www.ralphlauren.com/shop/index.jsp?categoryId=1760788

Unless the shops can afford security or cameras, the problem will not get better. It'll still be damned near impossible catching people stealing buttons in the fitting rooms, unless you pay someone enough to check every single item that goes into and out of the fitting rooms.

 

He's a nice fellow. A bit on the weird side but I enjoyed an interesting conversation with him about Kung Fu and martial arts. According to him, the most dangerous fighter in the street is a boxer...Hmmmm, sure.

I had that pair on the right back in the 90's, but they were the space jam edition with the multi colored tongue.

Those are one of my favorite shoes, have multiple pairs of the Originals from 92 and Retros.

Extremely pleased with my only find today:

post #59832 of 114441
Stopped by eazye's PRL place today, all he left were acrylic cardigans frown.gif

another stop after work gave me the good:



LB 16.5, dunhill wool/cotton, W&G wool/cotton


Incotex for EZ (NA), LB 52 wool/cotton
wool cotton blend kind of day I guess.


But then, there was the bad:



$18.99 dissected pants? shog[1].gif


and then the ugly...

Yeah, I honestly don't know how they'd respond to that, unless you are a legacy (which you might be).  Even so, though, it seems a little presumptuous.  In my interview (not there, but comparable) I didn't even wear a jacket or tie, but obviously putting effort into looking put-together, since I didn't want to give off the impression that I was try-hard or kiss-ass.  Too many of those in the ivies as it is.  Then again, maybe you have to wear jacket and tie where you go to school (?). But maybe you can later let us know how it went!

Still without internet here, thank God for my iphone. I'll post some pictures/questions after the guy comes tomorrow and (hopefully) hooks us up!

Thanks, just applying for undergrad admission
