    Ooops, didn't mean to commit a foul, lol. They were all thrifted and thought I'd put 'em up here first after the ordeal I had trying to get my last B&S up last night. I can pull 'em if they're out of bounds here. -M-

    Absolutely agree. My main problem with the point and clicks are the relatively slow shutter speeds although this is not a problem for the self portraits involving the timer function.

    our panasonic LX-5 has a 2.0 aperture. it's pretty fast for a point and shoot. ever since we got it back in sept., we don't really use our SLR anymore.

    You / Your friend win the thrifter of the week contest. That Brioni alone is worth all those things I thrifted combined (once I take out the sofa and the bows). It aint my size either, but I would have traded the whole lot of clothes for that trench.

    Yeah, it blew my mind. I never find nice outerwear - not in 10 years. How he managed to find it was a miracle.

    Thing is, I can't believe I waltzed right past the rack to the suits! Uuuugh!! :brick:

    Glad he got it instead of one of the notorious flipper ladies, though.

    Definitely a suit. Turn the store upside-down - search the women's trousers. 8/10 times if they're not in the men's, I find them in the women's.

    Yeah it is... found "suit" on the label. I looked through the mens pants for an hour, and the womens for 20 minutes! Couldn't find it =(

    I'm hoping they hadn't put the pants out yet. I'm planning on going back tomorrow to continue my search.

    If you're looking for a good DSLR then go with Canon or Nikon. Point and shoot I'm not as sure, but I'm sure those two make good ones of those as well.... I never see decent cameras in thrift stores though.


    LB leather jacket in size 52 US or 52 EU? If EU, dibs!

    What's the rise on the Zanella and RLBL?

    Not at a thrift find...but did buy a new Hickey Freeman suit today. Dillard's had one 65% off, with an additional 30% off permanently reduced sale items . Out the door with alterations and tax for $425 (Original retail was $1495). Nice solid lighter brown color. Will be a great spring/summer suit.
