You guys are making everyone crazy over thrifting! The ladies at a local Goodwill were saying that they were being swamped on Saturday. I did get a couple of nice cufflinks and a few ties but that's all I found.

It's not us, it's that damn song....what was it again? The cold-ass honkey song?
Bullock & Jones Cashmere Blend. Medium.
A couple of vintage winter coats in my size (debating if I need any extra winter coats in my life)
Also a Burberry button down for ebay. Struck out everywhere else but at least got to enjoy my favorite pizza place in southern Minnesota so it's ok.
Yeah, there was a lady DJ on a Balto hip hop radio station raving about the song. They announced they were going to play it for a half hour ahead of time. They had to bleep out a lot of the lyrics.
I wasn't too impressed.

Hey Wes, from my readings, Ralph Lauren made their own Polos in their states factories from 70's to 90's until Corn. got the contract. I was wondering about this too until I read this thread. http://www.styleforum.net/t/94886/ralph-lauren-lines-and-who-makes-what-a-definitive-guide/0_100
I seem to remember there being a fairly detailed discussion of the early years of PRL contracting and manufacturing in the Ralph biography Genuine Authentic by Michael Gross. I can't remember the specifics off the top of my head, and I don't have the book, but if anyone does it'd be worth looking it up.
The rest of my weekends finds in the morning....but for all of you late-nighters....I sign off with this little number.

Since I found time between work an thrifting. Running into Friskydingo in a GW helped get me back, too.
I'm going to try to get a "best of" post on here with pictures of all the good things I've found since I moved to the Pacific NW.
Also popped my Robert Graham cherry, lets see how that works out.
I will have pics to upload tonight hopefully. Had a great weekend thrifting now that work has slowed down a bit and i have the time.
