    A store near me was holding it's 99 cent weekend. I normally avoid thrift stores sales, as they're packed and all the good stuff is snatched up quick, but I was in the neighborhood so I popped in.

    The racks were bare, but I found an old made in England Burberry raincoat and a ton of nice ties that had been overlooked.
    Does anyone know how these raincoats run size-wise? The chest on this guy is 23" across, I was hoping it's look ok on me worn over a suit, but I'm swimming in it.

    L-R: Canali, Canali, Charvet, Luciano Barbera, Zegna, Canali

    None really my style at all, but a lot of names I've never seen thrifting before, so I picked them up (perhaps foolishly).


    Also picked up a black Le Creuset dutch oven

    A bit of a bummer, I overheard two of the guys camped out next to their overflowing carts talking, apparently a local ebay flipper is paying them an hourly wage to sit in the store all day and go through the new racks as they come out!

    I feel like I can;t really complain, since I'll pick up nice things to trade or sell on ebay to subsidize other purchases, but still, it kinda bugs me.

    Haha, you know, I think it still might. If not pretty close. I've put a little weight on over the years, but nothing crazy.

    Make your post without pictures...then edit the pictures in afterwards. That should be a work-around.

    Just missed out. Would have turned them into a really nice looking wallet and key chain.

    :laugh:



    :crackup:

    Showed this to my wife and she almost fell over on the floor laughing!

    Something happened (I think when they redid the B/S and all that) and that picture I had for my profile thing disappeared. I couldn't remember for the life of me where and how I found it, so I figured Mr. Magoo would have to suffice.



    Haha, I kind of wondered how people pictured me. I thought I had posted a fit pic or two in the past, but it may have been longer ago than I thought.
