No, that's the wampum GW uses in lieu of cash to reimburse its workforce.

My GWs and SAs employ many non disabled workers. In fact most work for regular wages or are temporary workers due to run ins with the law. I've gotten to know a few and they are working while deducting the months they have left to volunteer their time at our local GWs. Other local thrift shops like rescue missions hire men or woman they have helped through the mission. They employ them, pay them a fair wage and offer them benefits. It's a great place to be when fully tatted x gang members are some of the most polite and generous people. Pretty amazing to see people who enjoy working for an HONEST living. Anyways, that's my experience so far. All normal people where I'm at.

-never seen a legit charity. i just give random stuff to random people in need.

blocking noobs???? REALLY??? jeeeeeez, way to go gentlemen. FASTLIFE: do your research,, only buy your size to start. only buy natural fabrics. let the fit, and the feel of fabric in your hand with your eyes closed tell you what is good. and check the thrift fit thread for what guys are wearing.

I can't believe not everybody is going ape shit over that Brioni!!!

 

Also, that !Item selvedge is super obscure! I've never seen it in real life, only online and even then, not too many retailers carry them. How the hell did it make it up to where you at? I think they only have shops in NYC and LA.

Not trying to spam the shit out of you guys, but there is a nice selection of Duchamp ties, cufflinks, and shirts on Vente Privee today.  Pretty reasonable prices.
