    Huh. My wife said I can finally have my Nintendo room if I would just send Spoo all the Zack Morris clothes from my car, so I had to explain what LuxeSwap really does...

    Why is Dana White riding around on Frenchy's bike, ringing that annoying little bell with his thumb?

    Okay, well FML @kbadgley84 I went today and picked this beauty.

    Although not sure how to wear this... Green chinos, blue cable knit sweater, boots or bluchers maybe?

    I know all the people who sell shit and have stored and brands. I get all the new clothes now too, rare hip brands. Shit you ain’t heard about unless you a kid in LA or Kanye and shit. Kids are sophisticated and capable out here.

    I’m only going to leave these here a bit. Remember I did toys? I took a break, when I came back I realized my level rose. I set a sight on trying to make a boom with some toys. I did toys big before, seen results but understood how I could go up further. This is a bit different than action figures though. If your not familiar with “full size” collecting, basically take vinyl toy collectible and scale it up son. Multiply it. You seen a toy of a giant robot, you seen a 8 foot giant robot in your home? Also, do you know I have the mutant ability to trampoline the things? But, it’s all preparation, can’t blow the load lol. Don’t matter on a tie forum really.
    But, you will see.

    Did we ever work out the maker of the ties with the singular red dot on the label? I know it was posted a while back. Very Kiton-esque.

    Thanks - that’s a shame, the quality of the tailoring is great, I had high hopes!

    Not thrifted, so I'm going to spoiler it, but I think I got a pretty insane deal.

    Along with thrifting, I'm also into the credit card points and miles game. Before I get any heat, I NEVER actually carry balances on my cards, I just get the signup bonuses through money I would normally be spending anyway.

    Aside from that, my girlfriend and I have always wanted to go to NYC for New Years Eve/New Years, so this year I decided we would go, and stay here...

    $949?! I'm not paying that!

    Ahhh, much better... 60,000 Marriott points, and $32 to stay at a 5 star hotel on NYE? I'd say that's not bad at all.
