    Absolutely not. You take RB. I say this as someone who's been playing for 13 years and finished top 4 in 10 of those. The lack of stud RB's means you get your pick of the litter. There are QB's outside of the top 4 who will produce enough to matter: Rivers, Stafford, Matt Ryan, Eli Manning. The only time to take QB in the first round is if you pick later in the round.

    @SpooPoker Just hip hop stuffs. Had friends who had placements on big albums(Ice Cube Raw Footage album, etc) but not myself.

    Sorry, I'm not trying to be dense here, but I assumed it was a hipster thing -- basically, the cognoscenti trying to detourn the iconography of a blatant evil. Not frat bros engaging in a kind of un-ironic, rah-rah I'm rich, bitch!, rape culture bro fist! Surely that can't be right?*



    Still me, bro...I've just traveled to 1989. Had to alter my handle to explain various sartorial decisions :teach:






    *Note I was in a fraternity in Austin, and I wasn't bad, and realize not all bros are bad.

    Okay, could use some input on a today's haul. Some of it could be really nice or complete crap, still not sure my thrifting sense is fully calibrated.

    Item 1: Christian Brooks tweed blazer, ~40L
    [​IMG][​IMG]

    Item 2: Strathmore by Anderson Little blazer, ~38R
    [​IMG][​IMG]

    Item 3: Missoni suit coat. Tag said it was a 2-piece but the pants had disappeared, sadly.
    [​IMG][​IMG]


    Item 4: Brooks Brothers Golden Fleece blazer, BUT slight ripping along the arms

    Item 5: NWT J Ferrer suit coat, originally $325, BUT small wear spot on the front I only saw when I got home

    This one I know is nicer: Hickey-Freeman blazer
    [​IMG][​IMG]

    Florsheim single-monk strap BUT interior doesn't look as nice

    Florsheim double-monks BUT the strap connectors seem frayed

    I don't think that darker spot is a permanent stain, just dirt

    Finally, PRL lambswool sweater, super soft
    [​IMG][​IMG]

    So, which of these are worth having copped? They were like $5 each so no biggie if it's junk, just trying to calibrate.

    Same here. You probably need to be a bit more conscious of suit orphans.
