    Damn, I am humbled. My vote for king shit of grandpa's style mountain goes to eazye. ALWAYS knows what will fit him well, a problem I'm still wrestling with as a wade through a mountain of clothes worth more than all of my other personal belongings. Rookie of the year is DM7, natch. Classiest goes to my bro Spoo. Seriously, he sent a badass Christmas candle my way!

    I voted for the Oxxford SC; I chose it over the crocs because he still wears the SC and the gold buttons were pure bonus.

    Thanks for the comments on the buttons. A little lobbying, all items listed are quite amazing which makes for a tough choice. On my end, only gold button thrifted SC for 2012, sold the buttons harvested buttons from another thrift SC, and am wearing today. Best of both thrift worlds, made money on a thrifted item AND got to keep it to wear.

    Thought I would post a totally thrifted pick with the SC with the new buttons, wearing today (only suppose to get up to 65 today)

    Oxxford SC minus gold buttons, horn buttons harvested from an Italian made SC for $1.

    HSM shirt
    PRL flat front chino's

    I picked the Gucci alligator mainly for the huge ROI.
