I think thrifting Christmas is close to the real Christmas when the tax donations come rolling in.
I was wondering about that, not sure if I'll be home then, but will be sure to check the thrifts wherever I'm at.

Never seen any coat in my town for less than $10.
You're doing it wrong
Congrats on the AE's, but I like the Florsheim's better!

You guys are lucky. Here in Sydney many of my local spots have shirts starting at $15 & suits at $100+. Highest price i've seen for a suit has been $399 for an old old Armani.
There's a GW here that sells by the pound. Everything that gets pulled from all the regions GW's goes here, it is insane. I think it's $1.30/lb
Not usually into Militaria, but was looking at coats this morning, came across this heavy gray thing. Found the tag in the pocket. Couldn't believe the date on it. The thing is in like new condition. Looks like it was made in Germany but for a US uniform? It's a light gray twill, have to do some research. Says 1960
Also this, in like new condition too.
Also a few more cashmere sweaters to cover the continent in cashmere (someone beat me to that here) when I get around to it.
