But once I got down there, got my first taste of Waffle House (and the entire waffle house experience), rode in a pickup with Tim McGraw on blast, and witnessed the people of WalMart with my own eyes, I fell in love.

Well sheweee boy!

You guys KNOW some flipper was there thinking "This guy has to have awesome stuff he is donating" only to see Spoo walk in and start shopping.

ROFL

Thats the carpet cleaner I used to vacuum the inside, I didnt realize I missed some. patch[1].gif

And nobody really seemed to care, though I snuck in rather low key, but when I left there was a crowd around the car. smile.gif

While the southwest is nearly my favorite area, the southeast does have something about it. I remember the first time I drove through rural Mississippi. My wife needed to use a bathroom, so we stopped at a gas station on a back country road. I walked in and there was a buffet of delicious fried food in the middle (of a gas station). A couple of customers were standing around chatting to the employee. They looked at me and said something and my reply was simply "I'm sorry, I have no idea as to what you just said," and they all cracked up at that.

Do you have an accent when you speak? I could say pretty much anything down in Georgia and people laugh and make me say things again. Da Noo Yawk thing. smile.gif

Its funny, I put certain voices to you all when I read your posts and Hans you dont have an accent.

English is native for me, so I speak with a "native" accent, though I suppose native is relative. Either way, I don't have a thick German/Austrian accent unless I'm mixing languages. If I'm speaking English, I'll occasionally slip and use a very German pronunciation and the same using German with an English pronunciation. Either way, this crowd knew I wasn't from the area and found it hysterical that I couldn't understand anything.

I do add accents to people speaking as well. I give you a typical New Yawk accent as well...you'd say things like stand "on line" rather than "in line." You'd also go to a stawr instead of a store. The one that gets me the most is "whore." Do you, or anybody close to you, pronounce it as whoo-re?

A word that doesn't come up in conversation enough I suppose biggrin.gif I was thinking of The Sopranos and the way they often say it. It's nearly identical to the way we say hair (Haar) in dialect. Hoor.

Not quite on Nataku level, but I had an epic haul today (for me at least).

Started off kind of slow with a few shirts - Patagonia organic cotton flannel M, RRL pearl snap M, Shades of Grey chambray XXL:





Found this vintage with tags Nike rugby with a handwarmer pocket - kindof like a hoody with no hood. Anyone know how old this might be?




A few other odds and ends - NWT commando sweater XL, Lands End green knit tie, LL Bean Maine Hunting Shoes size 9, Varvatos Mainline summer odd jacket 54






Then found this Large vintage varsity jacket - NWT. Any idea on the age on this as well?



So far so good - then flipping through the racks I found this, which elicited a low whistle...
MTM Brioni navy suit, double breasted, 6 button front, surgeon cuffs, double vented, ticket pockets, super 150s, the works. This also marked my first ever successful orphan reuniting!



Oh and what's this? You have a brother on the rack?
MTM Brioni, brown with cream pinstripe, single button, surgeon cuffs, double vented, ticket pocket, pretty outrageous.



And to top things off, a pair of Martin Maison Margiela side-zip boots. Mainline, not the H&M version. Pretty sure these are the ones that retail for around $1,000?

Nice haul. I picked these up today.

C&J for polo 13D if someone wants to trade something comparable in 11-12D

Hooker, great stuff. I wish I could say I thrifted those Brionis, but only that Lands end tie. It's pretty great, though:

Couple Italian squares, designs a little dated but left behind a few others even more so. Surprisingly nice Paul Fredrick 7-Fold. Ancient Madder.

 

Liberty Of London for Cable Car Clothiers. Is this Grenadine, gentlemen?

 

 

 

Vintage Gitman Bros. for Nordstrom short sleeve in very springy colors. Might keep.

 

Alluring PRL Clayton and it's XXL cousin found later in the day.

 

I finally found a dressier cane. Perfect height. Brass fittings but the head, though hollow, is quite substantial. Could be bronze? I need a magnet...

 

And a shout out to 1ofTheCoolKids for a stellar shoe trade!!! cheers.gif

I also love H.I.M., Biggie, and female vocal eurotrance. My music tastes are quite electic.

PTO picked up a couple of my auctions on the roundup icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif.

Also found my second pair of Persols from the giant basket o'glasses on the counter
