Can we share? How about you take the next 7 months, then when I'm off work again, it can be my turn.


As long as I get the afternoon of January 23rd.

I never call off work, but I couldn't get out of bed. Called the doctor, told them I had a R.I. They would not see me. WTF!... Instead they sent in a prescription,...for the fucking flu. I don't have the fucking flu. Took the meds (Tamiflu) anyway, thinking it might work. Turns out I am allergic to it.  I don't have a visible rash, but it feels like I have the worlds worst sunburn...and I have had the world's worst sunburn before. Had to call the doctor again. They told me I am having an allergic reaction, and said to stop the meds, and apologized....still would not see me. WTF!! Must be the new health care kicking in.

Did get out today for a few minutes....
It's all self explanatory.
Going to sleep now in my brand new top of the line Sleep Number bed, fully purchased by thrift flippingicon_gu_b_slayer%5B1%5D.gif....first night.

That flannel is pretty cool.

My wife's grandfather (92) still wears one just like this when we go hunting at the cabin. The thing weighs about 8 pounds. I like the fact that it has a small game pouch built right into the back of the coat.

Your Honor, I'd like to revise my previous statement. My first shell at what the dictionary would call a "true thrift" (though the prices here totally belie that). I also found NWOB shell by C&J for RL at a Marshalls, and paid through the nose.

You were too late. But it's not our size. I like the Chaps DB tweed. If that thing is dual vented, it may be the coolest thing I've seen all year.

Dude, KILLING it. Nice.

Cleaning up that shoe haul right now. Planning to do a one-shoe-only cleanup on most and do a side-by-side compare pic. Should be fun. Until I lose patience and focus on something else....

I was with member steveoly checking it out. Last year we missed some untipped knit ties that were amazing. The tie rack gets bombarded at this sale, but the tie was in the way back covered by five other. I was going to buy it regardless of brand, but when I saw it was canali I was ecstatic. (sadly, canali is the best brand we have in Omaha)

There were a ton of Robert Talbott Caramel ties as well (all $30) But no staple ties (aka solid colors to me)

Holy fuck.

 

 I really want to hit Toronto, Vancouver, and Montreal.  All very fashion forward cities compared to most of the US.

Sounds like a plan, still need to get the keys to the castle from DM. And I agree, he'll still come down and lay waste to the city...

I had to pick some stuff up in LA today, so I made a trip.

Insane find! Not only that, but the fact that it sat around for 2 days in LA.

Yep, found a pair of green chinos but at a different shop. Even though Neiman Marcus left us after deciding that Minnesotans with money can't figure out how to spend it (CEOs of major corporations buying Pronto Uomo suits), we still have a handful of men's SW&D boutiques (BlackBlue, MartinPatrick3, Askov Finlayson (who sells quite a bit of Norse Projects), etc) who are doing quite well.

I think someone in that blog's comments thread mentioned somewhere to get wider hangers for cheap, but can't remember. Either way, there has to be a middle ground somewhere (or maybe not).

As a big dude with big shoulders this means getting appropriately fitting longer hangers otherwise I will get super weird bulges in the middle of the shoulders from the garment hanging over time. I don't buy those nice hangers because I am somehow fooled into thinking they are better than ikea hangers but because very few other places actually offer large sized wooden hangers that won't fall apart right away. This is akin to putting in a larger shoe tree in your shoes.

 

Really awesome find!

 

And for what it's worth, I've found some items that fit under the broad 'SW&D' category at thrifts too. But they're rarely my size and are usually older, like older CDG. And have yet to find any brand new, unworn raw denim.

Just picked up this dead-stock heavy wool cardigan that look's to date from the 50's or so. Wish it was about 2 sizes smaller. cloud.gif

Also this book on sewing which covers basic alterations as well as full garment construction. Now I just need to learn how to sew and maybe I could cut down on some of my tailoring bills. teacha.gif

I get mine from here: http://www.usahanger.com/

$7 each for suit hangers, and they work great for me.
