    Bros, my wife made us an awesome dinner in the wake of our pet rat, Noodles passing away...She died in a heat blanket in my wife's arms. Anyhow, the Karaage was bomb! The presentation was fucking awesome!

    Lol who's needs coffee when we could read funny messages early in the morning. Very enjoyable. Let's carry on with the thrift finds. @eazye you have an investor when you start your company.

    In reference to smaller clothes, I'm a 40 jacket which is pretty easy to come across, but my major issue is sleeve length in shirts. Going from center of neck to cuff, I'm like a 28/29. Any tips on how to find shorter length sleeve dress shirts on the bay? I know about Peter Manning and want to try a shirt if they have a decent sale. I'm trying to avoid having to pay for the cost of sleeve shortening - unfortunately near me the prices range from 40-50 per shirt.

    these ventee-privee sales are dumb. literally sold out in seconds. tried to grab a $9 Trafalgar belt. no dice. no idea how quick you'd have to be to actually get something. :brick:

    @eazye huh? if you got no humour, make no jokes. [​IMG] and you are late to the party. moving on....

    Best of luck with your dresses.Honestly your skill has definitely improved. the recent dress impressed me. that is not a joke. one day you will be a success. you are working hard for it.
    and when you are? i will applaud you. maybe order one for my wife. even if i gotta proxy it because of your attitude. -Because i would like to contribute to your growth. as stated yesterday, the revival of domestic production is worth supporting.

    your attitude aside, this Galaxy IS big enough for the both of us.

    I am more than a number. And my thrifting is bigger,more refined, and more hardcore than ever. to take the throne, as the Dark Lord of thrift. [​IMG]

    - while still giving credit where it's due. may your goals be achieved. in secret, i support you.

    I am willing to drop it all. i have no real beef with you. never had. only reactions.
    A truce? This is all you will get from me. - and it's a one time offer. if you also drop it, my vast thrift resources will be available to you, should you ever need.

    -Vader.

    yup i bought em. size 10s. i have some experience buying quickly as I sometimes buy sneakers on nike/finishline/champs and frequently flip stuff from supreme. should be a fairly easy resale. sorry for polluting the thread with naked capitalism.

    Polluting?...capitalism is the name of the game.
    Going through, that is one of the deals, if given the opportunity to actually think about it before just jumping on it, I would have pulled the trigger on. They make so much off these sales because people just buy stuff because it's so highly discounted...rule of thumb, if you wouldn't want it/buy it at full price, then fuck it when it's on sale, it's still the same thing just for less money...unless your reselling it, that's completely different. But a million idiots are going to be scavenging the shelves this Friday, buying shit they never wanted just because its 80% off or something...just dumb.
