    So agrivating... I found a really nice DB PRL suit at Marshalls. Apparently, someone bought it, had it tailored from a 42R to about a 39R, wore it, then returned it. There was nicotine gum in the pocket...

    For some reason I was watching the movie Twins and one of the bad guys wore the same Magnum PF shirt.

    The Suitors are 10.5 and I'm swimming in them, these are 9s and they fit perfect.

    These are from the same guy on Etsy someone just got some Brioni slippers from, they're super minty, I bet those slippers are nice too.
    Rounding out the day, some nice stuff and another POP, (the suitors were one)

    Dale, POP. had to brag about the price too.

    Today's finds:

    Minty AE Sanford for the large footed - 14 D
    [​IMG]

    Have been eyeing this for weeks. Need another watch like an extra hole in my head.. but 25% off today pushed me over the edge.
    [​IMG]


    Best find of the day was one of the most valuable items I've ever found but it wasn't meant to be. Catch and release.

    I stopped in the middle of the street on my commute home to pick this up.

    [​IMG]

    License, credit cards, and $400 cash. Google-fu helped me track down a phone number for the owner, and I'll be meeting up with him tomorrow to return his property. Feels good to do the right thing.

    Good for you. I've done the same a few times. One poor woman's iPhone case - with ID, license, credit cards, and absolutely ruined iPhone - was in the middle of a street. I tracked her down via her driver's license - she called and called and called the phone, but there was no way to answer, so it just jangled my nerves as I drove to her house. I hope she at least she got the data off it. Found a wallet in a parking lot the other day. Turned it in at the store. I presume they called him - it's a small town and a small store, so people know each other.

    Also found this today. Just got done testing it and it seems to work well enough. Funny timing: last night I was thinking about trading in my trust Canon 5dmkii for my dream Leica, since I really only ever use the Canon for eBay photos since I find it a bit annoying to lug around the large and heavy Canon. Pretty sure finding this today is a sign... so my trusty Canon an 24-105L is up for sale.

    Becoming harder to find, but I grab interesting vintage photos when I can find them for cheap (like, free, or 25 cents each).

    Spoilered for those who could care less.

    ...and this WW2-era photo: "Someone's getting laid tonight":

    Then there's this - it's a photo album full of photos of people who have shoplifted at (I think) Wal-Mart. Some of the pics are of undercover employees, so everyone is presumed innocent:

    There as awesome as they were when I bought them. BUTTTT...I'm not really loving the blue. They looked almost black but are more of a royal blue. They fit but i haven't decided on parting yet. The blue really bugs me.

    Hey dewds.

    Got a few decent things today (by my standards, at least) . I will post pics tomorrow, as it's late-ish and mostly I'm just lazy. I do however feel compelled to share a couple things tonight:


    THIS.
    This wasn't even in a thrift store (where I know the standard for civilized behavior is much, much lower than in the rest of the world). It was in Marshall's, where I have always operated under the assumption that everyone is on their best behavior. I was about to get excited because this was not only my size but also on the clearance rack when I noticed that
    SOMEONE BLEW THEIR FUCKING NOSE ON IT.

    Then there was this total let-down (I actually saw the tag before i saw the front [​IMG])

    Bird poop or milkshake? We will never know..

    @Dirt cant you talk em down a bit on the price at the register? And try @thriftvaders oxyclean magic on it? [​IMG]

    I can't really see myself walking up to the register and asking: "how much are you willing to knock off because boogers?"

    I'd much rather complain about it on the internet.
