Not that anyone here needs to read another endorsement of Spoo's legendary ability to turn donated cotton pants into 3 figures of cold hard cash but...

Gracias, Señor Spoo!

Don't know what to make of this.  Maybe he's going into rehab?  Self-imposed sanity check? Could also just mean that now he bypasses the thrifts and negotiates / acquires similar items via other means... [Curious in the event this was not pure rhetorical barb.]

got my beethoven on at boston symphony hall. No time to grab tie or pocket square, having just made waffles for 14 back at home (post church brunch with insane kids then out the door) and I didn't realize that if I didn't put my arms exactly at my sides the 1/2" cuff doesn't show (but it does, trust me, my tailor made sure...for my arms that are short and of different lengths, he tells me).



barbour English tweed coat (outlet, sample sale!)
eddie bauer green glen plain shirt (outlet)
polo vneck (thrifted)
canali wool herringbone trou (thrifted)
vintage barrie custom grade shoes (thrifted)

Pretty sure a month or so ago he said he was holding off on school/thrifting to start a real business with another forum member....high end menswear imports (wasnt there something like 50 Belvest's posted) along with that new website he is launching.

Well, there is precedent for this. Zach de Rocha quit Rage. That blew me away. When my bud told me, I was like, "He did what?!?" baldy[1].gif

From The Washington Post: "Tight end Chris Cooley is being chided by teammates for depositing his recent $9 million signing bonus check at a drive-through lane of a Leesburg bank. Cooley said the transaction did not surprise the teller. "She just took a little bit longer to come back out," he said.

Hasim Rahman had just beaten Lennox Lewis for the heavyweight championship. Word went out that he was looking for a manager promoter. Well, all these heavy hitters started putting together proposals and they were all structured like have one title defense get a payday, have another one another payday, etc. Multimillion dollar contracts. People like Donald Trump and respectable management companies submitted proposals. Don King however beat them all out. He just picked up Rahman in a limo and had $750,000 in cash in a black duffel bag and the contract. wow.gif Athletes...

Am I the only one who thinks this is stupid? FDIC only insures up to $250,000 (someone correct me if I'm wrong). If you have that much money you should know (or have someone who knows) the best way to protect your money. Earning it is only half the battle.

 

probably a BOA employee

I continue to not understand why these are so popular.

I actually see quite a few middle aged white guys who are obviously wealthy wearing these around the city. Usually untucked, under a blazer with jeans. You can spot them a mile away.

Saw one worse then this todaybaldy[1].gif I'll be heading back to grab it...

Did anyone else read this and have to go back up to find out what he meant by MMF, because "money market fund" wasn't the first thing that came to mind?

So... degenerate gamblers gambling (quite elaborately) on how much a degenerate gambler had in the account he just withdrew from? There's an MC Escher painting in there somewhere.

Because his (and our) other hobby, picking up worn clothing that someone felt was the worst thing in their closet, then either wearing or reselling it is less creepy?


Thanks for the kind words on the haul, dudes. Listed my Trafalgars today, before DM7 floods the market. Ends Superbowl Sunday, but something tells me that the dudes bidding up Trafalgar braces aren't going to be impacted by the Superbowl.

Damn. Nice return on that fugly RG. The best I've done this year shop far:

$2.00 Hermes tie sold for $147.00

Today I picked up like 10 pairs of incotex, zegna, LP, brioni, canali pants. I passed on about 15 zanella crazy pleated pants.


On the last store there was absolutely nothing good except for these 3 gems.

The suit is Liverano & Liverano. Dated and has some stains but for $9 I couldn't bear to leave it. Then out of a hundred ties 1 Hermes for $1.50! And then I paid cash instead of credit and got a 1944 silver quarter as change.
