    Nice! Get some down cleaner and a couple of tennis balls and clean and dry that thing.

    You guys have neglected to mention the #2 most important Skeet rule: Size matters! Smalls and mediums can get no interest at all. 2, 3 and 4-XL are $$$.

    I've also noticed this. I'm glad that most of the Robby G's I have are XL, 2XL.

    I can attest to that, too.


    Flip Talk:
    I had a RG 3XLB (triple extra large BIG). I'm a big guy and this thing could have been a robe on me. The P2P measured 32" (so a 64 inch best) and the length (BOC) was 38". I assume it was this long to be able to cover up a big chest and belly.

    I probably should have done more research on the selling prices. I listed it for 69.99 or best offer. Within an hour I got a $50 plus shipping offer. I took it! Then, I had quite a few emails asking if I still had it or if I had anymore. I can't complain, though I think I only paid $3 for it. And I had been hanging onto it for a while because I wondered whether it would sell very well.

    Watching some videos of people bum rushing stores for the Balmain/h&m release. People are insane. Already going for 3x the retail price on the bay.

    Just FYI, if the price is good enough and dependent on the material I wouldn't shy away from the security dye. I picked up a pair of Vineyard Vine golf shorts with the original tags at TJM for maybe $8 because of that dye. Dry cleaners tried but couldn't remove the stain so I picked up a bottle of oxy-clean spray and now you could never tell the stain was there. That stuff has saved me multiple garments over the past couple years.
    PMing you so hard

    Sorry for the 5 day flashback, but I'm still catching up on MANY pages.

    @TheNeedMachine that is one of the funniest and nastiest things I have read on here. Lots of things are funny. But, it is unusual for me to bust out laughing. I mean Really laughing. Thank you!

    A few questions since I'm still way behind on pages.

    Did the alleged thrifted Rolex show up?

    Did Jompso lose his mind? What the hell was going on?

    Is he really selling an assload of high dollar ties for $5 each?

    How many shell shoes has @capnwes found in the last few weeks?

    I wonder if @drlivingston ' s wife has banned him from buying from more shoes?

    @PLaydice you find the craziest coolest shit. These Joe Lapchick shoes are still waiting for you.

    Flip talk

    Has anyone else's sales gone up pretty significantly in the last 30 days? It seems the dog days of summer are definitely over!

    I have no idea what to get my ThiftChristmas person. For those that have done this before, do you just guess about what they might like or send them something that can flip?

    I wonder how much Wendy actually used her grill. Probably not at all. Bitch.

    God bless who ever invented the Bloody Mary and Mimosa, thus allowing me to drink at 10am without shame.

    Edit: if that's anywhere in south Florida you're allowed to drink scotch in the morning also with no shame what so ever
