Actually, I already have been thrifting full time for years. I quit my job to get some sleep.

Man I wish I didn't live in northern WI so I could quit my job and thrift.

 

Or if I could find a Rocky Mountain Featherbed Vest every week...

well, my ebay income would need to go up 13X for me to break even, so for now, its a hobby. I also like what I do for a living so I'll retire when I no longer enjoy it, or get a boss I hate, or have to go back to traveling 100K miles per year. Its a drag (as a married guy who likes his wife) when in a given month, you're in your own bed 3-4 nights a month. I thought about retiring 15 years ago, but didn't have anything I wanted to do more than what I was already being paid to do. I don't do well with downtime. Hobbies expand to consume any available time. 

 

As to Wes' retirement goal......My guess is that he will be 90 and still working something. He's making the full move to self employment and my bet is opportunities will come up over the next 2 years that will be even more lucrative than the vintage clothing business and he will find himself still sleeping only 4 hours a night.

 

We're wired like we're wired........

Two new year's resolutions down in one week.

 

1. Pay off student loan (really a carry-over from last year, but some of my other contributions pushed it back a couple weeks)

2. "Retire" before my 34th birthday. (was two days early on that one.)

3. Develop an effective home exercise schedule to lose 65 lbs. (the hardest of the 3)  

Congrats!

The most important thing to remember about number 3 in my experience is that you cannot out run or out train a bad diet.

Sad but true... I've been running 60+ miles per week for the past two months and haven't lost any weight. After my race in two weeks, I'm going to make an effort to drop some weight...

Plain black wont work unless you can find the exact same fabric, and even then it could be off. Kind of like how wearing a grey suit jacket with odd grey pants would look off.

A DJ with tartan pants is a classic look. Technically tartan trews should be worn with a prince charlie jacket, but unlike a kilt, trews work just fine with a normal DJ.

Not me, but the example that Wes and Spoo et al set gives me enough encouragement to think that if I were ever to lose my job, I could step it up and make enough to at least keep us off the streets. Maybe I could even make more than I am at my current job, but there's no way to know that unless I tried it, which I don't have the guts to do. And, long-run, my prospects are probably better in my current career.

The jacket is midnight blue, I guess the color is off in the photo.
