That's because you're a young man with boundless energy...though I did do my yard leaves this weekend = 4 hours of fun if you're a masochist.

Same here... AND I grow my own fruit, veggies, herbs, and train for stupid-long ultra endurance races...

 

Life is good! :cheers:

Got that back home over the weekend. Pretty nice piece.

 

Another trip north may be in the works for next year.

Brian, can I borrow that shrink ray? ffffuuuu.gifffffuuuu.gifffffuuuu.gif This was a buy/sell/trade store find. Needless to say, they had a Banana Republic Chinese made piece of shit sitting right next to this for about 4x the price.

That thing is dope.  Blue label PRL stuff never ceases to surprise me...the ultra-mass-market shirts and whatnot that one finds at Marshalls/TJX, contrasted with stuff like this, and the Corneliani-made suiting, etc.

And have another full time job
post #86663 of 114525
My deal with consigner vs self is that I want to turn this into something like Brian and Spoo. I have a full time job but it's just a job. I've never found a career I've been passionate about but I absolutely LOVE doing this. I've slowly worked my skills and setup to improve over time bit by bit. I want this to turn into something I can viably do to sustain myself. I've dived into it and soaked up every bit of information I could. I religiously stalk high end ebayers to get ebay picture ideas, read books on style and clothing, subscribed to multiple magazines, and dressed myself better. It's not a quick buck for me anymore, its a passion and hopefully a future.

Sorry was on the phone didnt get to finish. That said consignors offer an invaluable service. I could just use my spare time to thrift nice shit and make a nice side paycheck if I pleased. I hope to become one as well some day.

Here's a dual purpose picture; both an update on the family for all those that have been so generous and pulling for our little one as well as my first thrift fit pic. Emily is stable and on the heart transplant list, so we're just waiting...my sister came into the hospital to do some family christmas pictures and the hospital team was quite outstanding assisting with the transfer of Emily for the photos, as well as to hide as much of the tubes and wires as possible.

Just a nice shirt.

 

Yeah, I really want to keep it, but it's darted and it's just a little too tight for me. I would have the darts undone, but they were done at the factory and doing so would make the shirt balloon up a bit at the waist.

I've worn it a few times and love it, but I'm going to rip it when I bend down to tie my shoes so I'd rather just find it a home where it fits. If the back was fine, then I wouldn't let it out of my sight. The white shirt fits great though and is now one of the best shirts I own!

I probably don't need to tell a certain someone that the Ferrari Store is on Vente Privee right now.

Beautiful! And while I'm not a religious man, my prayers are with you.

E thrift for personal consumption $26 all praise to blue label


I am definitely a 44L now and as such I only have 2 pieces of suiting including this sexy unstructured beast from silverware

As a result of my annoying growing shoulders (apparently I am my grandpas body double but a little taller and though remaining slim all his life ended up a 48L 34waist 36inseam) I am purging pretty much all my old suiting so 40Ls get at me
