    Sorry guys... I probably got too excited. It's not a lot of rare stuff, but a wide breadth of cool stuff. 99 cents each.

    I'm especially stoked about the S/T Dylan, the Black Market Clash, the BRUCE, ,the Miles Davis, the Decline of Western Civ OST (which is rare!) and the Tom Waits.

    Wes, you just need a diffusor for your windows, and you can fruitfully remain indoors on those bright sunny days.

    And if I see a copy of Becoming a Supple Leopard, I'm going to pick up for one of you guys with thrifter's elbow or discount store knee. Goofy title but great book.

    I learned about Hermes by casually walking into one of their boutiques in a Vegas hotel a while back and doing an imaginary spit take when I saw the price on one of their bottles of cologne.

    I decided to go a little bit different today with my outfit for work.

    [​IMG]
    Hat: Goorin (Thrift)
    Shades: Persol (Discount)
    Pack: Timbuk2 (Thrift)
    Shirt: James Perse (Thrift)
    Vest: Hysteric Glamour (Thrift)
    Pants: Lululemon (Thrift)
    Shoes: Pantafolo d'oro (Discount)

    This whole hi tech outfit feels weird compared to my usual workwear and denim. It feels so...synthetic

    Had not considered a shower curtain. That should do the trick.

    Best 10 minute thrift quickee in a long time. Had a few minutes to kill before picking up my daughter. One stop: Polo Ralph Lauren brown leather bomber jacket with awesome patina (damn thing weighs almost 5lbs.), EUC Allen Edmonds Franklin, NWOB Allen Edmonds Sedona, Arnys tie, and a beautiful pair of NIB Crockett & Jones Bermuda oxfords in "ocean" (blue) suede.

    Wait, is he from the Twin Cities?


    That's a great solid haul. There's a lot of staples in there. They also appear to be in fantastic shape. Well done!
