    Does not seem to be anything unbelievable but in great condition. Anyone plays the flute or sells instruments, shoot me a PM as I don't think SPOO is interested in selling this. I would be happy to trade for menswear.

    ...horrible memories of when I was forced to take flute lessons as a kid.

    Not a thriftening, but was getting muffler repaired and took a 1/2 hour in a thrift nearby while waiting. First time out in 2 months, new position at work and taking a few college classes plus a boatload of stuff not listed. Everything is available.

    Gucci Suede Bit Loafers 10D - Rode hard and put away wet but uppers still in great shape just need my patented suede cleaning.

    Only hit 3 stores today because I ended up pissed and went home early.

    Started out well enough - thrift store #1:

    One piece collar - first for me:

    Anyone tell me what this monstrosity is? The dimensions are whack. Size 0. Buttons on the men's side. Baffling.

    Always wanted a cheap black leather blazer - no name brand but fits great, and no worries if it gets mucked up since it cost whatever GW charges for blazer. Needs an inside-out steam tho.

    Thrift #2 didn't give up much:

    No name MIA square:

    Then I went to Buffalo Exchange at the urging of another member who shall remain nameless vexco and curb-rashed my fucking rim trying to find street parking cuz the lot was full. Can that be sanded down & repaired? Fucking AMG wheels are probably 5% titanium or something stupid and it'll cost a fortune, if so.

    [​IMG]


    ANYWAY, Buffalo Exchange didn't give up much either, and my pics turned out to be crap:

    [​IMG]


    Not sure on Baldwin's - made in USA from Japanese selvedge denim. But are super crispy, like new.

    Still fuming about my wheel, I went to The Varsity for a nice, healthy, peaceful, solitary lunch (cheeseburger, onion rings & Coke surrounded by 500 screaming people and Georgia Tech fans who are technically not people).


    Then to Dunkin Donuts for a Boston Cream doughnut and I got a defective one cuz before I even bit into it, the entire shelf of chocolate frosting slid off the top and onto my favorite thrifted McKenzie Tribe shirt.

    "Fuck it all." Then I went home.

    That's right goddammit I blame you! And what about my shirt?!?! Hahahaha no it was just my own impatience...went around the block, back into the lot and there were several open spots. If only I'd waited 5 minutes. Stupid me.

    Was hungover, didn't wanna move, saw Spoo's thriftening and 20 mins later I was on my bike (thanks Spoo!). All available, but I'm only really looking to trade for mint slim fit black selvage in a 31/32.

    RLPL is a 36, 90/10 wool cash, Isaia is a 16.5
