    All Minneapolis thrifters will be out in force this weekend. It's like the JV is finally getting a chance to get on the court now that Nataku is playing an away game.

    It's our weekend! I guess this makes me realize I don't realize how many twin cities peoples are on this thing. I'm gonna start eyeing more people suspiciously across the racks now.

    First time I've been to a thrift in two months or so, and I got this Hickey Freeman wool/cashmere blazer off of one of the racks of stuff they'd just put out. 42R.

    I thrifted five gallons today--just $4.50 for the whole jug. But the idiots poured red paint in to denote the price. Hate it when that happens.

    Co-worker spotted a couple of Samuelsohn SC at the local charity shop and was kind enough to snap photos. They are 44T apparently and marked at around $20, which I think will be reduced in the next few days. If anyone wants them, let me know.

    Today had mixed results

    nice tie, really nice tie (it's seriously like high-end tie week, if I can still count a semi-busted RLPL):

    But

    I thought these pants were a big deal, then I got home and saw the Made in Mexico tag. But maybe they are still a semi-deal, or should I have just thrown my $5 in the trash?

    And these merlot Zegna chords .... Made in Romania?

    That's funny because someone at the thrift had tagged the Stuarts as Incotex. The tag sure kinda looks kinda like this pair of Incotex pants:

    I know there's some "Sales" this weekend up here in Minneapolis, I don't
    usually go out for those. Huge crowds.

    Have at it!

    I have a love-hate relationship with Minneapolis. Most of my hate is centered around uptown. Mostly because it takes an hour to drive through it :brick:

    Thanks for going thrifting with me! It was nice to finally meet someone (rather, the thrift master) from the forums.

    Good luck hitting up your other stores!

    I've picked up two of those same Venturas. They are very underrated, and are some of the nicest suits I have picked up.
