    Had fun in Atlanta today at the family reunion. Only hit one consignment store... Nothing much to report. I did pick up some wool and leather Etro wingtips. lol

    Here's my daughter with the governor of Georgia.

    Guitar and the stack, picked up right as I walked in the door at Goodwill. Surreal.

    Employee saw me eyeballing the stack (which had just been rolled out) and said SO WE GOT A COUPLE OF GUITARS CAME IN TOO, ONE WAS A LES PAUL YOU WANT A LOOK. Grabbed both and didn't look back, rolled it to the counter and wandered for a bit, 4-5 people tried to buy in the 30 mins I was there.

    1 pair of sulka pants for me today.
    Color in the pictures is difficult to see but it's a nice navy blue.

    Fitted me both at the waist and length with little to no wear signs... So I said why not.

    @bboowwyy depending on how deep you are into that kiton and if that collar is the only damage, it may be worth getting it turned.

    Don't cows wear leather, and they're out in the rain all the time? (I think I stole that from Jerry Seinfeld)

    Speaking as someone who has bought stuff based on label just to say "I finally popped on..." but it was too trashed to actually use or swap, I say - grab it, take a pic in the store, and don't buy.
    Otherwise, you got some really solid items today!
