    Anytime I feel good about some recent thrifts DRL Will say something like:
    I Found NWT Kiton and Cuchinelli pants I forgot I had.
    How is it possible to forget that? Absurd.

    I usually avoid the sale days as well due to the hordes of carts blocking the aisles, but did hit one today. Wasn't expecting much as I rolled through yesterday as well, but walked out with an Adidas Muhammad Ali sweatshirt, Billy Reid (pop!) crew neck and Mountain Hardwear fleece. Total was $10. Not exactly Thriftening, but a nice change from the dry as fuck summer.

    Picked up a pair of these. My pair are currently wet from cleaning but are like these.

    Lowa, Made in Germany, nubuck. Red laces. Vibram's with almost zero wear showing. weigh almost 75 pounds.

    Where do these rate in the pantheon of active gear?
