    So I'm the only one who's going to say that Kiton SC just screams Miami and birkenstocks with black socks? And what the hell is a Richards piece of clothing doing in LA anyway (or is Richards on the west coast too?)

    Kayso, maybe I'm a little jelly. But it is FLAMINGO PINK.

    Wow... lots to read through...

    I didn't thrift much today... I'll explain below, but here's what I can remember that I found:

    Zegna Suit
    Lubiam Neosartorial SC, NWT
    Versace Couture SC
    2 x Prada Heels
    Silver Tiffanys Necklace

    I'm not going to be thrifting for a few days, due to a combination of being broke, causing relationship problems, and neglecting school.

    I've found both of these in thrifts this past year for around the same price. I've had people stop me on the hiking trail to ask about/compliment my Vasques. When they hear how much I paid, they can't muster a response. I'm actually not worried about using the shit out of them as the factory refinishing location is right down the street in Boulder and the full service is only $80 (1/4 of the price of the shoes as new).

    Dude.

    You've mentioned several times how thrifting is causing you problems at school and in other areas of your life. Hobbies are nice, especially when they make a little bit of money. But school should be your priority. The benefits that you gain from thrifting are simply not worth the costs that seem to be imposing themselves on your life.
