    I really like this, nice colours and silhouette. Much prefer it to the more costume-y stuff.

    Queen downtown? You mean Leslieville?

    I still say that you should keep it Spoo. Sell another piece (or a couple) of your other outerwear instead . That thing is epic, and you probably won't EVER find another leather Belstaff in your size again. Just my .02.

    Dude she thrifts harder than I do. Well, just as hard. Shes the one telling me its time to go to the shops. That woman has stamina, I tell you.

    My daughters favorite part is "poppin tags". She also thrifts handbags hard. Shes got like 25 of them. We have problems. :lol:

    These are the "Zegnas or better" piles. One for ties, one for shirts/blazer/suits

    I have roughly an equal stack of both sizes for the mediocre (Mostly HF and BB)

    Also I bought someones entire Robert Talbot Carmel shirt collection. Like 6-7 shirts all the same size. Once I get measurements (no size tags) I'll see if anyone here would want them.

    My wife watches that stuff every night....I get the feeling she is either comparing me with the folks on the show, or she is looking for a phone number to flash across the bottom of the screen to set up an intervention.

    God this place is like an episode of Hoarders sometime. I moved in with my girlfriend almost a year ago. She has a roommate who I despise. Literally the only person I've ever hated. Filthy person. She's scheduled to -FINALLY- move out next weekend after daddy bought her a house. This is the living room. The living room is hers because neither me or my girlfriend want to touch the gross shit she leaves around. Not exaggerating. This is how she lives.

    I am beyond excited to start cleaning this weekend.

    It's some vodka, I don't know what. It's kept in the room because the roommate is a horrible alcohol thief.

    Spoo, you've got pretty much the coolest family ever. I can get the wife and daughter worked up about thrifting, but only if I've recently had an awesome sales week (the wife) or we first check all the toys for Legos (the daughter, and we've found some pretty cool sets that way)

    Passed on a pair of Bruno Magli loafers with a small chip in the back. Did I goof?

    I went out too late, and realized it was a 50% off day [​IMG]

    Came home with only two things - Purple XS Helly Hansen Shell


    And Corneliani..

    We are giant nerds.

    My wife is 100% addicted to thrifting. Her closet is encroaching on mine though :paranoia:

    My kid, same thing. She loves hunting for the shiniest handbag or the ultimate Kiton score for her is a Monster High something. She tells her friends that she got it at the "frift frop". So cute. But then I pick her up at her friends house in the rari. I get grilled at school functions, they are so confused :lol:

    Here's a pretty random thing to find at a thrift - recent Nau water-resistant overshirt. Slim large, available if it piques anyone's interest.
