The more I go daily, the more I'm starting to find things you guys are finding. Example : 2 eton shirts from the same donor, found at two different locations, what a pain.

I remember him talking about his 24 hr thrift shops they have in PA. That's the time when the extremely shy shoes made of shell cordovan come out from their daytime hiding.
I love this jacket, except the lack of pattern matching ruins it for me. The offset red stripe on the front and the white on the back that gets pulled over at the waist distract.
It's majority luck. You could arrive 2 minutes before they put out a big donation or leave 2 minutes before, you never really know. For me I find later on in the week are better, since in my area the weekends at the thrift are the busiest. The day before the sale day (people wait for the sale day) and a few days after (racks are replenished) are my better days. Also go crazy during the season changeover, as they hold seasonal stock, putting all the new season out at once.
I dig the asymmetry of this one, pretty sure they intended it that way.
It feels soft, but not necessarily "paper thin" - are the holes where bristles were then? Either way, they're awesome. The previous owner babied them :) they had that bulled toe before I got at em!
Cheer up Blanch....how bout some more tweed!
But really...y'all know I was joking right?

Found a great pair of Dior Homme 21cm black jeans. Made in Japan, size 34. Only two issues are the .5" hole that's cleanly punched through the right thigh, and a terrible hem job, which I've ripped open to get repaired (33" inseam though!).
These should be easy fixes; I have a tailor that does $5 hems, and a place nearby my office called Denim Therapy should be able to fix the hole for cheap. These are near mint besides the two problems!
