    True, it was more like I thought I found like a Corneliani Linea Sartoriale and then found out that I actually picked up just a regular Corneliani or something. Still a great find, but just a tinge of disappointment. I do agree that the SE dudes have the right idea in mind in terms of fit / tailoring, but at the same time since we're thrifting might as well try for the quality in terms of construction and brands :D

    Boss is my bread and butter. I am always amazed on how I have trouble moving quality stuff, but even the most unremarkable Boss always sells

    That's funny you say this because the tie looks like it has a butthole and sperm pattern on it.

    You never know what you're going to find and where. Was pretty shocked to find this at my local thrift today on my way home.

    If I wanted a stranger to park my expensive car, the last place I would check is at the bar.

    Were you with an attractive girl/date? This is an old trick that some guys do to get a girls number or get a beej. I know Dennis Rodman and he used to do something similar, guys would be star struck and he'd have them move his car somewhere that took 10-15 minutes because he was drunk. By the time the guy came back, his girl was 5cm dilated.

    I just found some Vivienne Westwood pants today, as luck would have it! I'll post some pics of them and my haul tomorrow.

    Damn, that's awesome!

    No thrift finds as of late. My only brag is going to the recent VV 50% off sale and coming out alive. I saw... things.

    Listen to Spoo, he knows his stuff. That being said, I think that is hilarious and would be more willing to buy something from a seller with a personality.
