And thanks to everyone else!


Referring to that meme however, every time I find a blue contrast collar shirt in a thrift I always think about how I should get together a Bill Lumbergh costume for Halloween because everything else would be pretty easy to find.  We should probably just have a thrift costume contest come October.

My god, all of us posting thrift fits Lumberg style... I'm in! Extra points if you're holding Milton's red stapler!

(also, thanks getting my back, bro. Awesome sale, too)

Gotcha, thanks for clearing that up.

One of the things that sucks about thrifting without a car is that I stumble across things like this from time to time. A few weeks ago, one of my regular spots had a full mid-century bedroom set. Tall dresser, short dresser with a vanity, bed frame and two end tables. So sad. Of course, I have absolutely no place to put them even if I did have a car. censored.gif

Suited, your pictures on the wood and leather look incredible.

Love the Lumberg idea. Not sure I could play; I have exactly 0 Keaton style shirts.

Today's thrift fit. Everything visible was bought less than retail (thrift, consign, TJX, made by me...)

Thanks! I think leather would be cool for everything, but I don't have a piece large enough to make that work. The ties don't really work on the wood because there's too great a risk in a snag (and as a buyer I'd be worried that the tie was snagged during photographing). The best thing I did was buy a step stool. Before that, the desk was too high for me to get a good overhead shot of my shirts.

dekalb near the mall or east cobb are the only areas i can think of at that price point outside of fulton NTP, i live in the alpharetta /roswell crabapple area off milton
