    Nice! Finding good stuff will get you into tailored clothing... Before you know it you'll be dressing like Spoo.

    I thought you were just yielding to my serious wood. OTOH, you DO have the vaunted bathroom stall in the background!

    I tried that but I couldn't get it to upload from Photobucket. I'll give it another shot the next time. Thanks for the tip.

    Found my first Hermes today. Granted, it was three empty boxes, but still more Hermes than I ever expected to see at a thrift in my life.

    A good thrifting story:

    I was looking through suits in a small town along central coast California, a lady comes up to me and says "excuse me, I noticed you looking through suits and I recently saw a few very high end ones in a store down the road". She explained how nice they were, how she could not take them due to her husband being too big for them etc, and she even drew me a map on a piece of paper to show where the thrift store was located.

    Well I go to the thrift store, and there indeed there were these high end suits. I flip through the rack, Oxxford, Oxxford, another Oxxford, ahh a Brioni, another Brioni, but then out of the blue, BAM, right there, alongside them all was the jewel in the crown. The jewel in the crown was a Bespoke Zilli suit in my size. Absolutely hilarious - this thing is tailored beyond anything I have ever seen.

    The Zilli suit and Brioni jacket was enough for me, I left the Oxxford's and other Brioni behind to be someone elses treasure.
