    Many of these are great deals, but I have to wonder. Are they new, or used? I myself just have a personal OCD problem with wearing used clothes. As for new clothes, I have no problem looking on the clearance rack when appropriate. But when I go buying(I don't call it shopping). I know what I want, and go for it, otherwise, I don't buy anything, or leave the house. The internet is for shopping. Stores are for buying.(that doesn't mean I don't buy off net)

    Uhh. Shops are for shopping too. I suppose, you know, that's why they're called shops. Many shops are in shopping malls.

    As it's a thrift thread primarily most of the clothes are used. Since you yourself just have a personal OCD problem with wearing used clothing I wouldn't recommend doing it.

    Not stores, stores aren't for storeing, that's something completely different. Besides, that is my opinion, as you are subject to yours.

    Picked up 3 Rooster wool knit ties. One is 60% wool 40% mohair which is the first time I've seen for a tie.

    So how do you feel about the possibility that someone else has tried on that shirt or pants in the store fitting room before you have?

    Grenson Commando-soled calf country derbies from 1992 in reasonable condition - 20 quid.

    Lovely Aquascutum suit in Charcoal Grey which fitted beautifully, but a glue stain on the lapel, so had to leave it.
