    There isn't winning here, especially when Spoo is involved. This is a man who has made a career of doing this, someone whose been doing it for nearly 2 decades. Someone who bought a Ferrari strictly from flipping. This is a man who has a system down to a science. It's like losing 1 on 1 to Kobe. It phases you in no way and you continue to do you because you just lost to the best baseketball player of the last 25 years, even though you may have a jumper as quick and as deadly as Ray Allen. He's one for admiration and respect and has earned these things in an overwhelming manner. But comparing yourself to someone who has made this an elongated career and has been acting as such for such a long time is pointless. He absoluetly works magic, but I would truly truly hope hat if any of us do this for as long as him, that we will be making the same sort of acquisitions as him...if your stagnant in an industry for well over a decade, you need a new industry.

    I'd also like to add that about 8 months ago, you could walk into any thrift store in this city and thrift a gator skin belt, a color to your liking without fail. I however, promising Spoo I would do so and thinking this city just pumps out Gator, proceeded to acquire 70 lizards, eel, and a great deal of gater skin belts to send to him. Well I depleted the entire city and you can't find a fucking Gator belt anywhere. Thank you @SpooPoker you have succesfully thrifted the entire city of Los Angeles completely dry of all Gator and you did it completely across the country....I refuse to take any respnsiblity for these actions.

    I loved acquring I'm sure as much as you enjoyed recieving it. Think nothing of it, it was fun and added a little extra little scavanger type missions to each thrift stop. I can't wait until you unleash the bigger plans on us, or just save them and unleash the final product. The interioir design of a house in regards to whether they want marble floors or couner tops, wood, or porcelian tile, is always something that can look very nice if done right with colors that complement like slabs of high quality marble of marble with color complexities that show depth and beautify, or wood flooring that is indvidual blanks made of high quality mohagony or something, these are all very nice additions to the interior to someones home. Take the skins, that are already mended to a rectangular leather base to give them perfect shape for construction, and decorating your house with exotic animal skins is a new type of balls and a new type of baller shit. I very much look forward to seeing what you do with an idea that is so far fetched, so out there, and so genius, that it has the potential to turn into a fucking masterpiece.

    Well, I was going to post some stuff, but...... Damn Spoo. I can't even begin to fathom how much that gentleman must have spent on his wardrobe throughout his lifetime. So many drool worthy pieces in there, but I'm really liking the detachable collars. So cool!

    Koala-T for some reason it's not letting me quote you, but to answer your question, if I didn't know any better, I would say the pants are all wool. They are also IMHO more of a tweedy texture than a flannel, but very soft and not itchy at all.
