    This is the Black Fleece coat I got a few weeks back. Came in at just a hair above 10% rule so I'm happy with it.

    Took me a bit of google digging but finally found it was from fall/winter 2013.

    Damn my phone camera is so bad. Was going to post today's haul as well, but think I'll hold off on that.

    SD is San Diego and not South Dakota, right? Otherwise I'm heading to Sioux Falls pronto. :laugh:

    Not necessarily. If it's NWT, Value Village tends to spike the prices. They probably have no idea what that brand is, and if it had no tag, would have priced it at $7.99.

    Probably the main reason why it lasted long enough to be marked down. We don't really need thigh length or longer coats here, but it's a thinner wool and I think it could be put to use here in winter without being over the top.

    Rule of thumb is the uglier/more colorful, the better. Don't see them much in my neck of the woods but passed on the first 5 or so I saw until I found one skeety enough.

    They're basically just free money. The dumber they look, the better they are.

    maybe your right but I'm guessing the way that top button hole is opened up from use it's used. I'm pretty sure they knew. It will sit there till half off or if those so called slashers don't #$@& it up first. But 30 ain't bad for a personal purchase either.

    I believe these were Timberline, and I didn't buy them even though I was intrigued by them.

    Can anyone explain the idea of these boots to me? I've seen a lot of men's boots, but never anything like this. The toe cover area attaches to the lace-up portion about 2" from the cut edge. They look military, but again, the odd leather cap confuses me. There didn't seem to be a steel toecap inside.

    [​IMG] Sorry dudes, I can't take credit for that photo. That was the picture I found on google. See that shitty one right below it? That's more my photography style.
