    Congratulations, @Snoogz !



    I accidentally thrifted weed on Monday. Was looking through the pockets of a Jcrew waxed cotton jacket I picked up this afternoon and found a half gram of shake in a medical marijuana bag. Thing is, I don't live in a state with medical marijuana. Oh well.

    They wouldn't be for me. THey're 29x32's. I'd simply be picking them up for profit.

    Very cool find. Sadly those care labels all look similar to one another. Those big, beefy Talon zippers were popular for a lot of different makers as well. Sorry man, wish I could provide further insight.

    It'd be awesome if a moderator added it under you avatar. Just sayin'....


    Here are some pics. Apologies for the crappy nature of some, I forgot to change the angle of my studio lights between shots.


    Is Marshall Artists a thing? I haven't found a whole lot about them yet, but these were pretty steeply discounted.

    A whole stack of bootcut denim by Patagonia in sizes ranging from 25 to 30. Crazy cheap...

    Today, I thrifted a Canali SC and inside was a $100 (PER CIGAR) cuban cigar! I threw it away tho

    No doubt... I sold a medium one already. This is the second of this one I've found. I need the size in between for myself!

    That's smart. My wife and I had been together for 3.5 years and decided our trip to Germany last summer would be our last big blowout before the baby. I'm pretty sure the magic happened on that trip. We seriously had just decided to start trying. It happened very quickly.

    I'm now trying to push for an SF ATL meetup before March 30 because after that, I don't know when I'll be able to come up for air.

    I actually have this one. Size up if you're a bigger dude. I wear an XL in most everything and opted for XXL.

    That's very important to get the stuff you want to do out of the way. Once kids are there, they are going to be there for a long time! This is why my wife and I waited until now. We liked being able to travel, spontaneously do things and buy the big things we wanted before we had kids. Now we feel like we're ready for that next chapter in our lives to begin.

    i'm a tweener. i flop between slim fitting L's and slim fitting XL's depending on the brands. I'm a tall dude but pretty skinny so it's hard.
