    I first read this as "Netflix". I think I have them on the brain since they are doing the "House of Cards" series here.

    Oh yeah ...ahem... y'all should check out this post on the thread about that upcoming series that's being shot in The Land of Pleasant Living!

    You and Wes are right though. I have seen so many fakes, it is unreal. Sometimes they even include fake receipts with fake items now. Boggles the mind.

    Captain Kirk?



    Aaah, thanks. I feel a little better now. That doesn't spark my interest as much.

    ^ This. I found a really nice Viyella shirt not that long ago in a red/white/blue plaid that I thought would go in a minute, but no dice. I actually only picked it up b/c I couldn't bear to see it sitting on the rack. Ended up giving it to a buddy, so it went to good use.

    But I just don't do shirts generally, anymore. I'd make certain exceptions, obviously, but I've only ever lost money trying to sell them.

    Can anyone give me a couple quick tips about what kind of suits to look for while thrifting? I never wear suits so I don't know too much about them. I don't need a comprehensive guide just some rough tips would be great. I can spot brands but I don't know them all, and I know some older suits can be pretty worthless even from popular labels. I was looking through stuff a few days ago and I was lost. I saw some BB and old Burberrys stuff but not surprisingly most was old and didn't look too great so I didn't think anything was worth it
