I quit thrifting.

*Gasp! Wait a minute, what do you mean you quit thrifting? You are never ever going to buy anything from a thrift shop? Hmmm, that's hard to believe...I'll give you a few months to maybe a year before the you get bitten by the bug again!
Unrelated to thrifting, big shout outs to Friskydingo for keeping an open mind to read my research paper on gun control and giving me feedback! Awesome!
Sure you did. And even if you did, you'll be back. You can't quit it...it's like crack baby. You'll go a day or two and say you've quit. Then you'll drive by one and say "one stop won't hurt me". Next think you know you're down on Skid Row at this hole in the wall joint with a arm load of fine Italian stuff. Who you trying to kid baby...you know your an addict.
True words, though. Every other month, I pay €50 to GIS for simply owning a TV/radio. If you have a TV and don't register/pay, you'll eventually get a letter and visit from them. It's ridiculous.
Whoa. It that for each tv/radio? Aren't there radios in your cars?
When I was in college it was irritating, but in retrospect, I received 3 degrees for free. In fact, the government actually gave me a modest stipend for those 7 years on top of a free education. So paying a little for TV wasn't so bad (and was far cheaper than my current cable bill).
Of course, free higher ed has disappeared in the UK now
GUYS look what else I found at the consignment store! The RLPLs are my size, not available. Both have some condition issues, but they're fixable or live-with-able. I talked the store down to $28 per on account of the issues.
Chester Barrie for RLPL, black or dark gray w/stripes. The top of the waistband looks like it got eaten by a vacuum cleaner or something. It's really odd and definitely not moth damage, but it'll be mostly invisible when I have a belt on.

St. Andrews for RLPL, single-breasted peak lapel, side adjusters on the pants. If this thing had a vest it'd be my grail suit. There's a single moth hole in the chest, but my reweaver can take care of that easy.
Corneliani for PRL made in Italy. Slightly too big for me, sadly.
Yea, that's the best find I think anybody's ever posted. But you know the rules, pics or it didn't happen.
Wanted to give a shout out to brianpore for such a generous deal on a shirt.
It made my day when I finally mustered up the energy to pry open the package at a turtle pace. I've been feeling under the weather as of late with no energy to hardly move from the bed, damn flu got me good this year.
Snapped a quick pic to justify my rant, thanks again Brian!

Glad you like. Feel better
Just caught up on 2 days worth of posts. No thrifting for me this weekend as I've been skiing. COLD but FUN!
I get the concern, Ray, but was this really the most mature way to handle the situation? Perhaps a PM asking him nicely?
Anyway, some belated brags and/or better pics of past brags. Mostly the highlights, but even that's a pretty substantial number of pics. So be warned! Click on the spoiler ONLY if you have a robust internet connection! Still figuring out my new camera, so the whitebalance sucks in a few of these. But it's still better than the old point and shoot.
MOST OF THIS STUFF IS SPOKEN FOR OR MINE. PLUS, I'M BURIED AT WORK AND NOT ABLE TO RESPOND TO PMs. IF YOU MUST HAVE SOMETHING, FEEL FREE TO PM, BUT IT MAY TAKE ME A WHILE TO RESPOND.

Dude! that is some sick stuff
Wait, this guy had 1.3 million in his checking account? I wonder if he diversified or just stuck all of his money in the bank...Even at 0.8% he's making 10,400 in interest. With all that money, you think he would of rock a Kiton or an Antolini. Canali, Pfftt, too cheap!
