    I had Isaia as one of the selected brands but did not see those. $35 for Drake's is definitely resale territory.

    Check the descriptions. Some are not listed as 7 folds in the title but say "seven fold construction" in the description.

    Ahh, I have that back at my parents' house. Mine's out of the box, though.

    That feeling when you see your Thriftmas person pulling in grail after grail like you have never seen before and feel like you have to gift similar grailness!

    My favorite find from yesterday, hands down...

    I went mountain biking with a friend on Sunday, and was complaining about how my shoes have become too tight (lots of running has caused my feet to grow a half size).

    I took note of what size my road cycling shoes were, and hadn't even started looking around to see what I could find. Wouldn't you know it? Local thrift shop has a pair in the right size and the right brand. They're not new, but certainly usable, and will serve me well. I just need to get a pair of Crank Brothers cleats to put on them.

    I don't get it. Is this true? Or are you making fun of the guy?

    Definitely get one! You also get 1% cash back on all credit purchases made with the Card. I pay my ebay fees with the card instead of having them taken out of paypal. If you use the card, you are basically cutting the fees by 1%. Plus, if you use for buying thrifted items, at the end of the month you get a nice little bonus. 1% isn't a lot, but as we all know, every little bit counts.

    Haven't found much in a minute, but this popped up on Sunday. Sorry for the shitty photos, but I was just stoked to find a personal grail.

    USN Dungaree Work Jacket - N TO THE A

    Nearly deadstock, just missing buttons. Anyone got a set, by some random chance?

    I pretty much ride my bike everywhere so I need stuff that can take a beating. Well built flannels, jeans etc. they don't have to be grail level either, I like my beater stuff, and it gets beat up. Chunky sweaters are nice as Chicago gets pretty cold. I've got CM pretty well covered but wardrobe staple shoes are always nice.

    Getting the PP card changed my life. Everyone on this thread should have one. It's thrifting 101.
