    I didn't mean to imply that you were in the wrong in any way. :satisfied: I just immediately thought of that scene when I read the story. Hell, I get annoyed when I can't take my dog into a store, let alone when I can't wear a hat.

    This actually begs a question for me -- what's the threshhold for picking up stuff like this? For example, that RL linen suit was around $100, and in seemingly great shape. Would folks buy or pass at that price? The Agnes B jacket was $40 so an obvious pickup, especially since it fit...

    Lived in Florida my entire life until this year when I moved to Arkansas. Can't wait to see some seasons

    ^^^
    For yourself? 60% (Max)

    For helping others own the item? some say 10%. i say 30%. sell at 60% and claim the 30% in the middle.

    As far as the discussion on seasons is concerned, my wife and I toyed with the idea of moving to Malta a few years ago. Fall and winter sound great in theory, but I hate them in reality. Fall is kind of like Sunday...it's fine because you can still get things done, but it signals something worse, Monday/winter. My wife always romanticizes winter with snow and Christmas, but I dislike the shoveling, the lack of color, the dark nights at 5:00pm, etc.

    Having said that, we're on our way to fall as of last week. The newspaper declared summer to be over weather-wise, which has been fairly accurate. It's a 2-3 week time period of nothing. It's not hot, but it's not cold. Some trees begin to change color, but you still don't quite need a coat.

    I'll certainly have a retirement home in a warm climate.

    I could provide a 7 5/8 head on which to rest that Panama, if need be. [​IMG]

    Would love to see a full pic of that PRL Linen suit!

    Your falls must be drastically different from ours. Midwest falls are a thing of beauty. I love nothing better than to step outside and feel the crisp air against my skin and take in the aroma of freshly fallen leaves. The hues a rich melange of browns and rusts and pea greens, much like the flecks of colors in the tweeds and knits I will be wearing.

    I would've passed on that PRL linen suit.

    Most things above $30 in a thrift store would be a pass for me, because that means something that cost $30 will need to flip for $100 for it to worth my trouble since I use consignment.

    But of course, if it fits, price would be less of a concern.
