Gator vs croc? Is one more common or sought after than the other?
And can I use regular polish?
I ordered 4 and all 4 are grenadine however 1 is a different tie than what I ordered...
Spotted across the store from 100 yards I just knew I had to have it. Loved turquoise back in the day (80's)
but .....Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Oh, and found this cool vintage "no name" tailored coat. It fits but going to give to my boss as it goes with his style
Going to be in Portland this weekend and next week, I won't have time to dig around the Goodwills and whatnot (plus I'd have to pay tithe to the local thrift kings), but if anyone can recommend some cool clothing stores I'd be much obliged. I know Self Edge just opened a spot there, what else is worth checking out? Feel free to PM me to keep the thread on-topic.
Totally bad ass BB 3 piece 3 roll 2. Too it has a small moth hole that I didn't discover until I got home. Anyone have a best guess on the date? There is no collar label or other interior labels and it doesn't look like there ever were. What does the "ML" stand for? Men's Long? Medium Length? The mannequin was also a pick up today after posting a wanted ad on CL.
I also check all of the women's jeans at all stores for certain designers. I proxy them for my ebay friend in Appalachia VA. She doesn't really have any influx of inventory and there is only one thrift store within a 2 hour radius. I try to send her 15-20 pairs a week to help out. It's her only source of income.
This is very cool.
On the topic of thrift store shopping routines, a lot of you are now probably well recognized by store employees and perhaps even exchange pleasantries with the workers or offered tips on when new stock comes out and whatnot.
Since I've began to hit up thrifts more regularly, at a couple Goodwill stores I've been tailed by an obvious 'undercover' worker and even roundaboutly accused of nefarious activity.
Has anyone else exeprienced this?
Store 1: I was perusing the bags and luggage while an employee was stocking shoes.
employee- says from between the shoe rack "I'm watching you!"
employee- "There's a lot of nice stuff there!"
Store 2: I had just sifted through the shirt rack and had moved over to suits. A guy who I always see in there (most likely a loss prevention or employee LP wannabe) approaches an employee working the t-shirt rack and says "Did you see the guy going through the shirts? Keep an eye on him. He's always in here flipping through all the shirts. " Other employee says "He must be up to no good". I proceeded to the electronics and I see that guy at the end of the aisle obviously "conducting reconnaissance"
Each incident I thought about reporting to management but I figured, there's a reason these types are working at Goodwill.
