    Hahaha, I actually loved my "cropped pants" (ie Manpris) but it's definitely an acquired tasted and yeah I think they are just longer than I am used too. Considering the relaxed silouette I think they will be okay.

    Back of truck AGAIN? Holy shit man, you're the master of right place/right time.
    Funny, I just listed one, swinging for the fence on it, trying to beat Brian's record for a used one.

    Ah - Wes, that's the one I was thinking of. Thought I remembered it being a BIN which was why I associated it with Brian.

    I was confused, as most of them I sell don't go for over $75. That said..... I'm bragging about this one that JUST sold and was on consignment here for a fellow thrift thread poster [​IMG] Top 6% of sold Burberry Suits and its the OLD Buberrys' label. [​IMG]

    BURBERRY Brown Plaid Check Wool Jacket Pants SUIT Mens US 42 R

    PS - Well done SPOO!!! That is a redonkulous price for a pre-owned RG shirt no matter how ugly it is. [​IMG]

    I watched someone sneeze into a shirt sleeve once. Literally grabbed a long sleeve shirt sleeve and blew his nose into the shirt, then continued on.


    Dang! Yeah, Spurrs are nice, too.


    Oh man. I'd be all over that but it's too big for me too. :( Wonder why it runs so large. Usually this type of stuff runs slim. Thanks for thinkin' of me, though!


    Found some cool stuff today. Everything is available.

    Scored some nice NWOT Martin Dingman belts for peanuts.
