    You're right... it was a crapton. That said, it's a safe bet, and I just messed up my car. I can deal with the stress; I simply need the cash.

    (I left suit #3 because the trouser pockets were completely worn out)

    To clarify, I don't take offense. Now at least everyone knows what they should expect if they want a Cucinelli fix [​IMG]


    Until then, I'll just adjust the jacket's waist all the way in, put it on, and dance to Hotline Bling.

    Get yo down game onto my level Drizzy. Moncler won't cut it anymore.

    Do you guys all do the same things I do? Is it possible that this whole time, I thought I was doing things the way everyone else was, but really, thrifting is something else entirely?

    Because I go into stores that sell stuff other people didn't want. The stores are a bit chaotic, they smell weird and are FULL of old shit. Most of it's worthless: puzzles with pieces missing, coffee cups that advertise magazines that no longer exist or political parties I don't support, t-shirts from sporting events that no one watched, polyester pants that smell as bad as they look, etc.

    Reading through the last few pages of this thread makes it sound like thrifting clothing is some sort of noble work that caped crusaders do.

    "Thrifting" isn't some sort of slang term for performing neurosurgery, developing technologies that can lower energy costs, or aid countries experiencing devastating droughts, right?

    Just checking, wanted to make sure I'm on the same page as everyone else.

    Just a reminder dudes. To keep the peace here and the good loving "Bar at the end of the block" vibe, these are things we should not do -

    - post other peoples prices they paid
    - post locations of someone else's finds if they did not offer such themselves
    - make direct insults at others
    - make direct sales pitches that are not in the spirit of the thread

    what we should be doing
    - using thumbs
    - saying "available" or 'N/A"
    - making those of us who come here to escape work feel like we are watching a action comedy, not a drama


    SPOO OUT

    Basically. The skill of thrifting is in the knowledge you have. The shit being there for you to buy is just dumb fucking luck.

    The things that pop up in small town thrift shops... Not just thrift price, less than five minutes from closing time on half price day.

    Does it make you laugh when the cheapest shirt in the store is a Brioni?

    Thrifting is also not selling crack.

    edit: or the drug game in general.

    Correct,

    Thrifting is like smoking crack, it's all you can think about while you are not doing it.

    Exactly, and let's keep it that way. For the love of clothes, and deelz, not money. That's just the pleasant side effect.
