    First post, I'd like to say hi and thank you all for the knowledge I've absorbed while reading the last 300 pages of epicness.

    My love for thrifting, and my subsequent flipping on eBay was born of necessity when I was collecting old Nintendo games. I'd find rare titles that I already had and sell them on eBay or trade through forums to get the titles I needed. From there it was a progression of thrift-based curiosity- "This looks neat, what is it for? Do people buy/collect these?" Add an interest in menswear, and here I am! I think I'll like it here.

    May I share my all time favourite thrift find? I've found more expensive stuff but this one I kept, fits me perfect, and is my personal grail for some reasons that might be obvious to To most of you guys.

    Cheers!

    Edit because I dropped my phone and accidentally submitted only midway through my inaugural post. F*ck me, right?

    Is there a reason why you are using such low iso and such big f? I would use these setting only if i was shooting outdoors at noon time. Colors look fine but image looks flat.

    ...and most interestingly, Polo French chore coat. Three button, unlined except for the sleeves, big patch pockets, cotton with viscose sleeve lining, made in Italy. Super cool.

    Got out 2 days this week. Best of the haul + a couple E-thrifts
    I've bought Positano before, thought this had merit. I try not to buy things just because they're fun/different, my closet would be full.
