    Dunhill is a bit of a rarity, but PRL, Paul Smith, Hackett, D&G, Armani are fairly regular, occasional Stone Island, C P Company, Gucci & Prada. Watch out for poor condition & fakes - there are loads more fakes than in charity shops.

    So could that, no?

    I thought forums were places to engage in conversation, and that was mainly thrift related. If it strayed to far off topic then I apologise to whoever moderates this thread.

    Thrift thread. Chatting about thrifting, what's wrong with that? I don't see a problem :)

    Just wanted to give a huge shout out to SPOO. A few weeks back I picked up three pairs of great shoes at very cheap consignment. Auctions ended yesterday and all three were record highs for me including the one pair of lattanzi's that went for almost triple my previous high sale. I know no one needs encouragement to use his services but I could not be happier.
    Good luck on working this full-time my friend. Working with you has always been a pleasure and profitable.

    Of all the jackets I wear random people always come up to me and compliment or ask me about my jacket when I'm wearing my be belstaff jackets. It's the weirdest thing.

    Can anyone help me identify this belt? Either maker or material. Seems to say LOTREC maybe, but google draws a blank.
    Thanks.

    Consignment pricing, but still a no brainer for a flip. I got cornered by this old lady who runs the store - kept me there for at least 30 minutes. She's really nice, but I kind of dread and sometimes avoid going in there because I know I'll get stuck and feel bad if I cut off the conversation abruptly. Luckily, it's usually my last stop of the day.

    I know the feeling about being cornered. One employee gave me a running update on some family legal issues concerning some real estate every time I went to that GW. Fortunately she no longer works there.

    But being cornered for Huntsman is well worth it!

    I accidentally let it slip that my wife and I might be moving in the next couple years. I told her this before, but she forgot. As you can imagine this sparked an endless supply of questions. Probably a combination of her being friendly and not having a lot of people to talk to. I'm glad I like talking to myself. When I'm alone I'm always verbally sorting out my thoughts and ideas. While technically insane, at least I'll always have company when I'm older.
