    Picked up 3 pairs of shoe trees today. You can never have too many shoe trees. Also grabbed a wool blend plaid shirt of no particular note.

    I would love to find some shoe trees, but like bow ties, they're just something I never see.

    I'm a college student at Penn and that's around my size [​IMG]. Still, it'd be nice to find a cool place to thrift around here.

    The Salvation Army in Roxborough/Manayunk gets A LOT of good stuff. Last time I was there I got about 12 Polo ties for $2.99 each. They get quite a lot of stuff from Boyds. I've also gotten some J&M's, some Ikea furniture, and a TV. I think in general all of the Salvation army stores of the philadelphia area are pretty good. Go check it out.

    Oddly this wasn't in Bethesda, it was in a part of MD that's not even very nice. Go figure.

    Damn! All these Kiton finds lately!! I don't think there's a single place in Minnesota that even sells Kiton (which is probably why I never find any... ).

    Then again, I've found stuff from Barneys and Bergdorf Goodman, and those sure as hell aren't in Minnesota, so I'll keep my fingers crossed.

    On closer inspection it looks like the pants size are mismatched. The jackets are 56 and the pants are 52. Weird, I guess some dude got them mtm? Anyway, hopefully some huge drop guy will want them.

    Meh - a Hermes tie is in no comparison to a Kiton suit [​IMG]

    Always wondered why Kiton opened up a shop in PGC.

    I found a Merona (Target) suit for $0.99 at a thrift store, with the tags still attached. Of course it wasnt in my size. So I bought it, and brought it in to Target, and they let me exchange it for my size!
