    I thought NORE was being ironic, or tongue in cheek, or something. I also suspected he was (knowingly) stirring the pot.:D

    I guess the result is that we're on for another day or so on the morality of thrifting, which will lead inevitably to the morality of thrift stores themselves. :cloud:

    No, please, not again. This happens every other month or so. It's a tired debate with rehashed arguments. And I think NORE is just trolling anyway (could be wrong, don't care).

    What we should be focusing on is finding where Darkmatter lives/thrifts and invading. Send a PM to contribute to the war chest for the trip.

    If anyone happens to visit, send me a PM. I will take you to the treasure chests.

    Also, I leave behind a TON of Zegna/Canali level stuff. If anyone wants to know where I've left a large quantity of stuff behind, let me know. Today in particular I left behind 5+ Canali suits, and 10+ Sport Coats / Orphans. Also left behind Belvest, Chester Barrie, and Brioni Sport Coats that were priced too high [​IMG]

    LOL your "disappointed" is my AWESOME FINDS OF THE MONTH if that makes you feel any better! Seriously, wow!


    As for my finds today..... here it is!

    [​IMG]


    Yeah, that's right. One shoe. It's interesting, though, in that it's a Florsheim shell SHORTWING. Never seen that before. Size 10.5C. Numbers inside are 431973 32701 - and the bubble is the blue The Florsheim Shoe one. Even more interesting (and the reason I picked it up) is that this is NOT listed on the Hunter's Guide to Shell. In fact, I can't find any similar shoe listed anywhere.

    p.s. see the white stuff at the bottom? the whole shoe was covered in about that much dust. impressive, I have to say.

    I did have a manager look halfheartedly in the back for the mate... it was put out with a beat-to-heck Florsheim pebblegrain longwing for the left shoe. Argh. I left them that one, in hopes that perhaps the left shell shortwing is paired with the right pebblegrain longwing. :brick: Still, though, it was interesting enough to pick up.


    Oh, and here's the Tods loafers I saw the other day... they looked really nice, I'd love to have a pair of these for myself for actually driving in... these would not work ;p
