On October 16, 2018, I was lucky enough to find this Asprey alligator wallet at a thrift store for $1.99 (plus tax). It was $3.99 and I had a half off coupon that day.

In this thread, I will chronicle how I am going to use this wallet through a series of flips and reinvestments, mostly in the menswear field (to keep relevant to the forum), to buy my second Ferrari. As many of you know, I thrifted my way to my first Ferrari in 2013, which I sold late last year. So I've decided to do it again and keep a diary of sorts along the way, with how far I can get this $2 to take me.

My goal is to turn this wallet into $85,000 within 18 months, to use as a down payment on the car.

I hope you all will enjoy the ride (literally)!

The solution is obviously to buy 2130 Hermes ties for $5 a pop, sell them for $50, and end up with $85k after fees and shipping.
