All the talk of weather...
I went from95 at home to 107 in Sacramento onmy way to Colorado. It was in the upper 40s at the highest point of I-70 yesterday, and it rained during the night. I woke up to temps around 50 in Boulder. A perfect "fall like" morning! I will really enjoy having actual seasons.
Here's a pic from my friends' balcony this morning looking towards the Flatirons.
And here's a shot from the trailhead I ran at this morning (~2 miles from the house we're moving to next weekend).
I did halfway decent at the thrift shop this morning, though I had to leave behind a pair of Isaia slacks with a nearly blown out crotch.
If anyone has a lady friend that wears a medium, i just found a sick +j navy wool peacoat
Nice photos. Heading up to Denver in the morning to see the new grandbaby. Probably won't be seeing much of the mountains with all the family time though. Looking to break out some cool weather clothes however.
The Unique Thrift in Westminster off the freeway was my thrift spot when I lived in Colorado years ago. Stop in Westminster someday and give that garbage town a middle finger from me.
You guys can have your "seasons". I would gladly take months of sweltering heat over months of bitter cold ANY day. Sure, it's fun to wear all of the fun seasonal clothes. However, no amount of layers will ever beat a pair of swim trunks, well-worn t-shirt, and a pair of Birkenstocks.
LOL, I knowwhatyou mean. I've been there.
Be prepared for winter thrift fits of me in aloha shirt, shorts and sandals.
Anyone have suggestions for must-stop thrift/consignment stores en route between NY and Virginia Beach? My girlfriend and I are going on vacation, and I'd like to make a stop or two along the way to break up the driving monotony. Please PM if you have any suggestions - appreciate the help as always!
I wish that I could give this more than one thumbs-up.
Alright gents, I hardly do this but here is a haul from the past few months. Everything is available unless otherwise stated.
Brooks Brothers Country Club/ LP Fabric: 40S
HSM Traveler Windowpayne Check SC Made in USA (Super nice): 44R
Vintage Corduroy Cortefiel Sport Coat, with crazy matador lining: 43 R

PRL Pima Cotton Blend Unstructured SC: XL (44R) Super soft
Paul R. Smith (Paul Smith?) super recent, dual vented, half-lined, linen blend sc: 44R
This is a very unique Paul Smith piece, as I believe the label is written in German (@HansderHund ?)
It also is labeled as a size 26.

Skeet Red Dress shirt, very tame: 16.5

Paging @fueco @Nataku this is what I've been looking for?
Sure why not
I know, right? I thought of keeping them as well since sunglass-buying season is past its prime.
Yes, German. Größe = size. A 26 is an EU 52 short.
Oh, and @Nobleprofessor: You can quote multiple people in one post by clicking "MULTI" instead of "QUOTE." I wasn't sure whether you knew that or not since I often see multiple posts from you in a row. If you already know and are trying to up your post count, feel free to ignore that advice!
