    So what's up with these posts. They feel like advertisements. Are these thrifted articles that you're bragging about?

    Okay. I guess I'm wary of posts that just show items in someones possession that are available.

    Some more explanation or context as to how/where the item was obtained for much less than retail would be nice. I don't really mean to pick you out, just I feel like I've seen more advertise-y posts lately and wanted to speak up about it. Cheers.

    You can check my history, I usually only post if something is worth it... should I post every 25 borelli chasmere sweater i get, or the new. 9 pcs ricci gloves, or the new Marco pescarolo (250 pcs)?
    Maybe, but then everyone says... ads... I think I only post thing that is worth to see and Bragg about... I guess :)

    But it’s not thrifted. You could become a vendor and have your own thread like Spoo.

    Maybe my point didn’t come across as intended. Plenty of people post consignments, store/estate buyouts etc that are only tangentially related to thrifting.

    If we’re going to single one person out, why not everyone? Just because one user has been here longer than the other shouldn’t change the rules applied to everyone.

    @haloitsme keep it up!

    It was just a misunderstanding. Back to regular programming!

    Congrats to all you thrifters who have life-changing moments recently.

    Is this Rancourt? Vaguely reminds me of their font. Don't remember them ever saying "man-made" though.

    I know I've seen that one before and probably known what it is... does the tag have an RN # on it?

    Regardless, I will say it's odd that Isernia is spelled "Lsernia"

    He posted about those a short while ago, though I think it was an authenticity check on the eBay page (not sure, no coffee yet).
