    Also, just ran into @AlexJ1100 in the racks. Can confirm he is a real person, and a nice dude. Good to meet a fellow Louisville thrift bro. :fistbump:

    If those are 11s, imma be bitter.

    Haha, it was great to meet you also. Louisville guys have to stick together. Good thing you post fit pics otherwise I may not have made the connection......

    ......on second thought you're one of the few other men I see walk in that store that aren't wearing something terrible like pleated jeans so I may have picked up on it, haha.

    Now I'm curious what @Orgetorix was wearing, if it's best described as 'not pleated jeans'
