    Found two interesting things this week:
    JM Weston Crocs (Although I have this weird feeling its fake) for $25. Might as well take a risk.

    NWT Kiton Pants for $200 from Marshall's.

    Both up for grabs.

    Every once in a while I wonder if I'm in the presence of another SF'er.
    We need a secret code or something, an SF mating call of sorts.


    Can we not tell by each other's dress?

    So would anyone care to explain to me what is the difference between Goodwill and Salvation Army? The price of GW are much more expensive than SA, though the SA jacked up their prices in their Boutique store. My gf said something like GW is selective with the things they accept and SA takes everything, is this true?

    Somewhat recent find that's just too big in the neck for me...

    Mariano Rubinacci for Barneys New York. 16 x 35 1/2 or so. Spread collar, no chest pocket, straight-cut yoke, and French cuffs.

    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    It's on the 'bay, but I'd rather trade straight-up w/ someone on this thread for something similar in a 15 1/2 x 33 or so (English, French, Italian-made, etc.).

    Thanks! -M-

    PS - I have WAY better luck dealing directly with fellow thrifters on this thread who know what's what with even trades than on the B&S... just wanted to mention that before I get mad-dogged about it. [​IMG]
