    Hey, @Fueco . I need a little help. Is made in the USA North Face silver/gray Gore-Tex desirable? Either way, it was cheap. My main question was the gender. The colors indicate female. However, the 27.5" pit to pit makes me wonder. Do these just have flared torsos?

    Gotta say, as a professor in a business school, seeing those inventory backlog pictures makes me pull my hair out. Would you keep boxes of dollar bills like that? Because that's what you've got right there. Those boxes are full of money you've spent, money that you could be spending, or money that could be working for you. As they are, they're just piles of money doing nothing (and as Jompso pointed out, probably decreasing in value).

    Priced $695 winds up keeps time (at least for the last hour).

    A few half off day grabs. Girlfriend has the car today so only got a few things. Store was kinda empty anyway. Anyone know anything about the tie?

    Oh well...good work. My thrift gift person did not post much about what they thrift for themselves either.

    Speaking of half off day, my local Savers is having 50% off clothing and accessories. I'm about to go in, and hopefully, @Koala-T , you get blessed with several BB sport coats.

    Late to the game on this one but Bahljs' post reminded me:
    I put all my deets in my profile but to expand on that: I don't really wear ties or CM stuff. Usually smart business casual streetwear type stuff. Engineered Garments or the like (Post O'Alls, RRL) hit that sweet spot for me. I also like designery things like Dries or Margiela. Generally a L or XL - 22ish P2P. 36 Waist. 9 E or 9.5 D shoes. Could always use more scarves or belts.

    Doesn't have to be clothing either. I'll gladly take some local (to you) beer or bourbon. Or a donation to a charity of your choosing. More or less - I'm not picky!
