    Assistant Professor of English at a college in a very small town in Maine talks about why he wears CDG when he teaches:


    And the key to thrifting:
    "If you find yourself in major city from time to time (conferences, visiting friends, etc.), make time to locate and visit charity shops and consignment stores. Putting in the time is the only way to find out which ones have *good sources* (key in consignment as in academe).

    "By ‘good sources’ I mean, essentially, they routinely get castaway clothing from rich people who buy the new season every season and give away designer clothing in wearable condition. Once you find such places you can plan to shop there and find good things. But also..."

    Great day today so I thought i'd post. Finalized a MASSIVE deal for the small-ish company I work for AND on the way there I had a chance to stop at a store I don't get to frequent much because its out of the way and the headquarters of the corp i've been negotiating with was luckily relatively local and near by. After traffic i had about 15 minutes to spend in there. Hit the shoes first and nothing. Checked out the sweaters in my size and nothing then on to the outerwear. Made it through everything but about a half dozen leather jackets and was resigned to nothing and then this. Pop for me and while I remember seeing a shirt at least I cant remember ever seeing a leather jacket in the years i've been here so possible a semi thread first?

    Badass and minty bomber/blouson biker jacket with the off center/over sized like a perfecto leather latch at the neck that I don't know what the name for it is. Brown (and lamb) which is a color I hardly ever find decent leather in and damn near mint save just a couple of darker spots on the leather i found examining it under a good light. Riri zippers and all. Too big but like hell I was going to leave it! I honestly cant get over how soft this leather is. Now to find something similar in my size in 2019...
