    All clothing 3 dollars sale at Goodwills in Los Angeles...

    I saw the Spanish speaking community dismantle a new to the floor rack of clothing like piranhas devouring a cow that slipped into the river. Those clothes had ZERO chances...

    It's happening again, maybe it would be wise to find different thrifts, today.

    By the way, did you score the ca$hmere RT tie at the Sugarloaf NMLC? I almost went there on my way to U-Line. Sandy Springs Goodwill was loaded with great neckwear yesterday. Koped around 30. Then picked up a nice Beaufort for $20 up the street at Rag O Rama. In Snellville now planning my day. Almost forgot, also koped a mint Cooper A2 for $15 at the Buckhead Thrifty Q. Everything there is half off right now. I left several Zegna and Thomas Pink shirts.

    I've only ever seen loads of Aeropostale, J Crew, and other terrible mall brands at that Rag O Rama. Great find!

    My rag-o-rama's been shit recently. Unless you want beat up, non-selvedge APC's for $60. I did grab a tweed ludlow jacket from there last week, but it's not like it used to be. It was only two years ago I copped Momo's for $20 there.

    For what it is worth, I left behind a nice PRL waxed cotton jacket that had a small spot on back (it would clean easily)and a gorgeous Arrowhead made in the USA wool full-zip jacket.

    Yup, Sugarloaf. Hadn't been there in a long while and was already in the area. I've only been to Rag O Rama once and didn't seem like a place I'd find anything - good score on the Barbour! BH Thriftique is usually good for finding at least a couple things, esp when they're having a sale. I need to stay in today and get stuff done - hope you score some nice stuff while you're out and about!

    Since Mr. @drlivingston has been raiding Atlanta, burning thrifts to the ground, he might have passed on these ties at Buckhead Thriftique because they have some damage, but I figured they were good for $2 pickups, and if tiecrafters is really as good as people say it is, that might be well worth the scratch. (70s-tastic Hermes found at a different store. It's an acquired taste, but for $3 seemed like a good get.)

    It's this brand called Urban Renewal, I guess they take old things and make them edgy. Terrible terrible execution here.

    Actually a good idea, thrifting old items and tailoring them for a more modern cut and reselling. Couple places in SF doing that
