    Well it appears timing plays a big role in the thrift life... made a quick stop and store was empty of goodness until these rolled out on the racks...
    Rarely find this label

    Timing doesn't play a "big" role... Timing plays a HUGE role.

    Does anyone here have any significant Etsy experience? Specifically, I'm wondering about the vintage market that seems to be dominated by Malaysian sellers. Their prices aren't crazy low but they are far more reasonable than their American counterparts and most items seem legit based on pictures. Anyone who has experience buying from these sellers, feel free to PM me about your experience.

    Dr I'd agree it plays a huge roll also. But there is for sure some planning and smarter ways to go about it then just dumb luck. Like out hustling and working others if possible. That being said my best find ever was just good timing so that's what I like telling myself whenever I'm about to go into the store. Then I run into mcrib or oolong heading out with all the good stuff already and I go find somewhere else to hit ha!

    Probably not a lot of meat on the bone but if this will fit you, it looks to be good a deal. Tagged a 46 and listed at 49 OBO meaning she should take 35. 311816069773

    Patch pockets and a nice pattern

    Hello, picked these up and not sure if they are a thing. Only other pair of jeans I could find with the Polo Western label were a pair of women's listed on Poshmark. Have googled my fingers bloody, cant find anything. I am assuming they are older, maybe 80's, but not really sure. the tag on inside is completely washed out, so no RN#. Any help will be useful.

    Can anyone tell me whether this pattern (from a GANT Rugger sweater) better described as "basketweave" or "checkerboard"?

    I'm not a keyword master, but the knits are shaker and herringbone. The pattern is checkerboard. So maybs keep it simple with "textured knit checkerboard pattern sweater"?

    Agreed. There's an American seller who's tried to corner and distort the concert-shirt market, but with bales of clothes leaving the continent, it's not gonna be possible. I've bought many shirts from Malaysian sellers, and I've never been disappointed.
