    Here's the couple of Spring jackets I found thrifting tonight, in my size. Totally my style and fit, if not flip-brag worthy.

    Love the faded butter yellow. Newer le creuset all kind of have the ultra bright color scheme which I'm sure is good for brand awareness but the aged look is great.

    Some more stuff from recent. I don’t think I’ve shared any of this stuff here before. Hopefully no repeats. Almost all is either bins or thrift, a few e-thrifts and a couple of the tees were not thrift price but were still very good deals that were well under true market value. The ancient Brooks Brothers cardigan from today is killerrrrrrr.

    @Dirt all great items, but those David Allan Coe shirts are sick. Autographed too, gotta be a keeper.

    Yeah, keepers for sure. The autograph thing is weird for me. On the one hand, I love it from a collector standpoint. On the other hand, I’m not the dude that just collects old shirts and doesn’t wear them. I love wearing all the shirts in my collection but having one be autographed kinda sucks because I want to wear it but can’t ever wash it if it gets dirty. It’s a real PITA!

    Also, on the other DAC bootleg, it’s hilarious that they got the lyrics wrong

    Plus like extra hipsterness for spelling acrylic wrong.

    It'd be a shame not to wear it, but I understand the dilemma. If it survived the bins, it can survive anything.

    I thought something seemed off about the lyric. Hell, as a bootleg, I think that makes it better!

    Woah, what’s the story on the Guess, Cure, OMD and DAC stuff? Those (along with the far right Bombshell’s hair) are all pretty epic!

    The DAC was a staple of our college parties (and he hit on my date once backstage at a concert!) but man, I felt super-awkward about it ever since I heard those self-released racist albums :embar: .

    Black Cat shirt is surprisingly rad.

    Noob, I’m a huge DAC fan and pretty much every conversation I have about him with anyone who knows about music, the Xrated albums come up. It’s unfortunate that that’s what sticks in people’s minds when they think of him because he is an incredible singer and songwriter aside from the joke albums he made in his younger days. If you read his autobiography, it addresses the topic of those albums in detail, so I won’t go into that territory and anyone who cares to read or listen to the audio book can do so.

    The Cure shirt was purchased from the same seller as the OMD shirt (honestly, this is the craziest piece. I’ve NEVER seen an OMD shirt ever, and now I own one.) the DAC autographed shirt was purchased for the tidy sum of $25 and the same price, different seller for the other DAC shirt. The Bombshell shirts and sweatshirt are sooo fucking cool! From the bins, naturally. Finding multiples of dope vintage is always mind blowing to me.

    No idea. I found an unopened bottle of sake rice wine in a bag on the wall in a SVdP once, though.
