    ^^Ridiculous score on those suits.


    I had to take my daughter to a doctor's appointment out that way. I don't know that I had ever been to that store before. It's quite large.

    It's brand new... like 2 months old, or so. Basically sucks in my opinion (being honest, it's not a secret honeyhole of goodness). The SA in Independence is better, marginally because every once in a while you'll run into a bunch of donations from one person, but in general in the SA is the worst thrift stores in the metro for clothing.

    Made a quick side-trip while Christmas shopping today. Plain white Barba Napoli shirt in my size. The first Barba I've ever seen in an op shop. The collar is huge; I think I'll have to wear 7 fold ties with it. Also picked up a pair of Thomas Pink cufflinks at the same spot.

    Did the reverse of the missing pants search today. Hanging on the end of a rack were a pair charcoal pinstripe trousers that immediately shouted out OXXFORD. Apron waist, two belt loops on the one side, secret pocket. Flat front, perfect condition. I had just gone through all of the suit and jackets and there were no Oxxfords, so I went through them again. No Oxxfords. So I went through about 20 racks of women's jacket. No grey pinstripe. But there was this in the ladies racks...

    I'd say there is, and sometimes ppl even buy the made in USA versions just b/c of the brand name and they don't know any better.

    Found a large reverse seam Steven Alan shirt today (it's kinda goofy but I might end up keeping it), but the real reason I'm posting this is because when I tried to check out, there was a guy in front of me that bought $123 worth of t-shirts at maybe 99 cents a piece(?)

    He saw me with my lone shirt and was very apologetic although he had already let a few customers go before him before I got in line so I was very gracious. I was left wondering under what circumstances does someone buy $123 worth of t-shirts of every imaginable color and design?

    Might be bulk flipper, you can sell t shirts in bulk to Africa and some 3rd world countries and make more money. Although this is usually the case when someone buys what GW and SA don't sell by the container full. Same thing happens when people go in GW on sale days and buy carts and carts of shoes of all sizes.
