    Hahaha! Don Cesar on St. Pete Beach.

    Just got back from a store named McB's downtown - mens consignment. The dude is hiring for daytime, and also possibly looking for someone to measure & photo etc for ebay. He has some sick items in stock including an amazing Brioni leather coat with fur collar, some Bijan, Kiton etc. If you're in the area, check it out - he does work on the price for some stuff.

    Stoked! One of the wealthiest beach towns in the area is having their annual city-wide garage sale this weekend. Hoping it doesn't get rained out...and that they have some good stuff.

    My details for Thriftmas:
    I only wear Vicuna, so nothing short of that will impress me. Just kidding. I don't own anything Vicuna and if I ever find it, I actually hope its not my size, because it would be too hard to part with it!

    I wear a 2XL Tall which translates to a 18-181/2 36/37. 50L Suit, 11.5C shoes, although I can go all the way from 11D to 12B. I wear dressy clothes 5 days a week. I recently found a Borreli shirt in my size and its a great shirt and so I have figured out my size in those kind of shirts is 18.5 Long. But, I would be grateful for anything. I wear a 42 waist and about a 33 inseam. But, I would be grateful for anything - -seriously. If someone doesn't want to get clothing, I am always interested in Political stuff as I'm a history buff. I do have a collection of Reagan and Nixon memorabilia, so that would be amazing. But, seriously if I get one Brooks Brothers tie, I'll be grateful! This really is a cool idea. Now, I just wish I discern a little more about my Thriftmasee ( @freehand I like Thriftmasee! Let's hope it catches on!)

    How can one get involved in "Thriftmas?" Or is it to late?

    i assume it's too late since everyone got their person already. he might be able to put you on a list in case a few more people sign up late, but I'd think you'll probably just have to wait until next year. click here -> @HansderHund and go through his last 10-20 posts and you should be able to find the rules, etc.

    Unfortunately, @My Main Man is right, it's a bit too late this year as all of the names have been drawn and sent out. I think there is a parallel gift exchange running, but I'm not sure who organized that one.

    I'll take anything and cherish it. Somethings I always need:
    Wool ties
    Wool Pocket squares
    Braces
    Light to mid gray flannel flat fronts in a 36 (with room) or 38.
    Solid blue shirts (some brands that fit me well: BB Slim (not extra) 15.5x34, CT Classic 15x35, Borelli 15.5R
    Flannel and Tweed Sport Coats in a 40R

    Again, anything I get, I'll love, so don't think of this list as exhaustive or exclusive, and for god's sake don't break your back over this. Make it fun!


    UPDATE YOUR DAMNED PROFILE WITH SIZES AND WANTS!!!

    I was in Vienna today, so not nearly as many employees know me as in my own stomping ground. I carry a rucksack to each store when I visit and I normally say hello to whoever is working, even if it's busy, and then ask to set my bag by the counter while I look around as the aisles are cramped. Most have no problem accommodating this. I walked into a store today, said "Grüß Gott! Do you mind if I set my bag here?" She was pretty annoyed with it and said "It will be in my way, find a better place to set it." I found a better place and left it.

    As I was checking out, they had a bunch of leather gloves in a basket on the counter. I picked one pair out and they were nearly too small, so they were perfect. As I was trying them on, she said "they're €5. They're great for driving."

    Without skipping a beat, I said "...or killing a man" and waited a few second before I made eye contact with a sociopathic smirk. She went through a range of emotions while she tried to sort it out in her head. I got them for €3.
