    This isn't making it ay easier for me to follow that rule.

    I've got plenty of stuff I need to measure and photograph though, so maybe after I finish those...

    Agreed! I just finished taking measurements/photos of my backlog... now just to get another 200 auctions setup... There has to be a faster way to do this than what I'm doing.

    I just saw this desperate gchat message from a sartorially challenged friend, about five days after he sent it and too late to help him. Breaks my heart.

    Any opinions on the authenticity of this RG shirt?

    How do you even find shirts below $5 at thrift stores these days? Most thrift store price the shirts close to $10, jacking the price up for something like Polo and J Crew, and jacking the price WAY up for designer items.

    Shirts are just cheap down here (unless they feature NASCAR or **insert random redneck endeavor here**) You can find JCrew all day long down here for cheap. You won't find hardly any Ludlows. But, in most of the thrifts down here, you can't swing a dead cat without hitting a JCrew button down.

    I've been to thrifts / Goodwill's in 6 states this year and they all price differently. Some don't have a "special price" section at all, others put anything Abercrombie / J Crew / PRL, etc in the special pricing. Some sell shirts for $5, some for $10+. Depends where you live and shop - thrift stores do not all price the same.

    Must've been at least 5 or 6 years since I've seen a thrift price a shirt below $5 around here.

    I am not thrifting today to spend some quality time with the family. I decided to make my wife happy by organizing a couple of the closets. Then, to my surprise, NWT Kiton and Brunello Cucinelli pants that I had forgotten about suddenly appear. The only good part about having an immense backlog is that you can thrift in your own house and still find the unexpected.

    Thought this one was just wrinkled, I didn't realize it was a pleated ricci until I got home!

    And then these, thought I could make them work, but unfortunately they're not gonna work
