    Chill, dude. That said, I would hate to be on the other end of the intercom when you're coming through the drive-through. The world is not your servant, nor are minimum-wage thrift-shop employees there to do everything just-exactly-perfect as you might want or demand. And, yes, it is a raw nerve--as I said previously, it's a pain in the ass to be held up in line because folks with groaning carts think that it is someone else's job to deal with hangers. Think about it: You're getting a $300 tie for less than $5 and you can't be bothered to remove the freakin' hanger yourself because you think it's someone else's job. You weep for yourself and you curse the thrift store. You have that luxury. You have that luxury of not knowing what I know, that the clerk's disregard for protocol in removing tie from hanger probably saved time. And my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, saves ties. You don't want the truth, but you want the tie.

    Big shout outs to 330CK for hooking me up with 3 lady's watches (for my girl), a BB vintage blazer with horse hair canvas, and a bonus jacket!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The reason I know the BB has horse hair canvas is because I pulled out about 3 strands that were poking out of the fabric. Super awesome guy!!!

    I could never even think about wearing something like that, but damn if it isn't amazing to look at.



    Isn't "odd color" the entire point of harris tweed? Looking at mine, I have a light blue/natural herringbone, one that really can't be defined as any particular color, with yellow/white/blue/black/rust repeating for the warp, and a denimish blue for the weft (same blue used in the warp), and one that's really best defined as a dark purple. If you get a harris tweed jacket in a conventional color, you're doing it wrong.

    Insane finds. Crazy to know they came from the same city I thrift in. I have a feeling I've seen you out there before :hide:


    These worth picking up? Ones been sitting at my local goodwill for a while now. They want $8 for it.

    I need to do a post. I've gotten a few nice things lately.

    Just throw a giant lapel pin or flower on that bad boy. No hole, no problem.
