I still don't know how I feel about that fight. Silva deserved it, but I hate seeing his run at the top end. I hope he takes the rematch

Did you ask at the checkout? Sometimes they put out only one shoe to deter theft.

This scavenger hunt thing is awesome. I may have to skip the first couple of weeks but looking forward to participating.

If this is structured like some kind of thrift Bingo, with $500 shat-in pants as the center square, then I'm already way ahead.

Some recent finds.  Also,  I'm in for the scavenger hunt if you'll have me.  :)  


Suggestion for scavenger hunt:  Worst mannequin styling.



Barbour Cowes jacket...for me




A bit dirty but it was half off.

A couple of Cucinelli.  I found these at the same thrift store a week apart.   In 18 months of thrifting, I've only really found 4 things at this particular store:  these Cucinelli sweaters, a D'Avenza jacket, and Brioni jacket.




Gran Sasso sweaters.



Women's Armani Classico blazer.  I rarely pick up women's stuff but everything about this felt right.  Is anyone able to authenticate?

Almost passed up on this because it's a 42 extra extra short....almost.

Spotted this little guy tucked at the end of a women's rack in a GW as I was checking out.

An orphan.  I tore the store apart looking for his pants...no luck.  The label had been removed.

A bunch of people have PM'd me with questions about the '70s shirts. To avoid cluttering up the thread with business, I'm putting everything in a spoiler below.


Here's a sample pic.:




Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
The shirts range in size from a kid's 4-6 (for those with kids or petite wives/girlfriends) to a men's M-L. The adult medium fits like a modern small/medium, measuring about 17" in the chest, 13" in the shoulders, and 27.5" long. The adult large fits like a tighter modern medium/large: 19" in the chest, 17" in the shoulders, and 28" long. The kid's 4 is a 12" chest, 17.5" length, and 9" shoulder. The 6 is about a 12" chest, 9" shoulders, and 19" long.


All shirts are printed on 100% cotton stock. The adult shirts are vtg Fruit of the Loom. The kid's are Viscount. The printing was done in the '70s.


Because these have been in storage for so long, I would prefer to hand-wash and hang-dry before selling. You can see that some of the sample pics have a bit of dirt on them. But it'll be up to you. I won't ship anything that isn't clean, so this thread is basically pre-orders. I have other shirts with other graphics that I'm going to hold back for now.


Obviously, I have only a finite amount of these things. So while I'd prefer to sell them for what they'd cost in 1974, I'll need to cover shipping from Canada and make a bit of a return. I'm thinking that $25 shipped is fair.


Adult Large: Also available in a black graphic.



Adult Medium:



Kid's 6:



Kid's 4: Raggedy Anne and Andy.



Kid's 4:
