    Fair enough, no real loss. A few of the items fit me so I might try them out. This town also has very slim pickings, so I get over-excited when I see something anything remotely grab-able.

    It's all coolio, you should spend some time going back and reading through this thread from the beginning. It's a pretty good way to learn labels and what to pick up, plus you get to know us a bit better.

    obviously for personal use anything goes, really.

    but for market value/desirability, i would've passed on everything without a second thought.

    the real question is: what didn't you see or what did you pass on that would've been worthwhile?

    I like the first pair of Florsheim monk straps, what kind of hide are they?

    Mine are just my initials, but is so boring I might change it (laughing man is available?[​IMG])

    @SpooPoker ("¿como de bueno es tu español?") would never guess it, which raises the question of how many people speak spanish (gracias and amigo is very common here) on this thread...

    ^^^ you have 4 initials?! baller!

    fwiw, i am of mexican descent but sadly no hablo the espanol. maybe just a leeeetle. i would understand if you wrote something but conversationally I'm a dead duck.

    i do like amigo tho so you will see me use it all the time but when you see it in my posts imagine a gringo saying it. i also cherish the phrase adios so i use that IRL as well.

    My first name starts with J, last name starts with D.

    Pretty sure Drake stole the Drizzy part from me.

    Not sure, doesn't seem to say anywhere I see. I can make out that they're 11C in size, but any more than I'm sure someone else could guess with more information than me.
    Well I didn't post everything I grabbed. There were these three pairs of Allen Edmonds that fit me, one of them NWOT:

    And also this YSL shirt that seems in perfect condition:

    But they're all going into my closet and were less borderline, while also not being overwhelmingly brag-worthy, so I left them out.

    Mine is based upon a character in my favorite all-time book ('Dog of the South'). When I was registering I couldn't add a space, nor could I use capitals to differentiate the two words. So I'm stuck with reosymes instead of Reo Symes.

    Yes, one middle name and two surnames from both my parents, the universal Juan and the more spaniard "geographically" of Fermin...like the running of the [email protected] weren't you there this last year? Anyway I'm originally from the other part of the country...

    Nobody asked me but I tend to get angry when other Pokemon attack me and I self-destruct so I just get super baked and everything is better.

    Nah, I'm just fucking with you guys. Voltorb has never been in my line up and I have a drug test in a few weeks. The real truth is that I liked AC/DC when I made my AIM username back in 2005 and then I stopped.
