    Score! Class 5 is one of my favorite vintage makers. I've found jackets, vests and packs but never a sleeping bag, Great find! Like Fueco said, definitely toss it in the wash and then in the dryer with some tennis balls.

    Posted by Nobleprofessor: 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?

    Suggestions: Perhaps look at all of the persons posts and see what they comment on? Punt and send ties?

    If you find another Blackwatch robe (doesn't have to be Pendleton) in a big size XXL or XXLT or even 3XL (unless its HUGE), then I'm your buyer!

    Well, on Tuesday I was insulted by a woman when I asked to purchase the Hermes ties that she had just thrifted.

    I think we could all agree that when you miss out on something cool, the best way to bounce back is to simply get out there and keep thrifting. So I took half a day yesterday and hit a bunch of spots. Here's what I came up with (N/A on mostly everything).

    I'll thrift fund my own damn Hermes ties, you rude witch.

    Anyone else 'advanced searching' their gift exchange person looking for clues as to what they want? This is awesome.

    This is very true with women also. I've learned that the hard way in the past 3-4 months. Hurts to see that "Hermes Tie" walk away, but somewhere down the road there is an even better Hermes, or maybe an EG Cappelli or Marinella.

    Besides... in hindsight, that first Hermes Tie was crazy anyways. [​IMG]

    A few more pics of those size 43 Harry's of London chukkas, since a couple people asked about them:

    Score. Kuhl revolvr, currently my favorite outdoor pants, 32x32 and fortunately vanity sized. NA

    Popped my Brunello. A bit of pleasure, a bit of relief, but mostly it just hurt. Looks like the waist (36) has been let out, I thought I might be able to get it taken it in, but I think 2" will be too much. Also a loose leg hem and a stain on front that should come out with a little water #inBeforeDrLpointsItOut
