    Speaking from experience: I attend art school and practically every girl is wearing a pair like these. Definitely worth picking up for the flip. Plain docs do just fine but the louder the better: floral, cats, sequins=$$$

    I have a pair of those AE Stockbridge, from EazyE. I like them for crummy weather / business casual because of the soles.

    Here are a couple of things I found over the last week or so. Available
    You want some black denim from Loro Piana 36X30?

    Maybe some Barbera 2-pleats are more your style.

    And I know one of you guys wants to get into some tassels by Hickey Freeman 8D
    [​IMG]
    And these are for me at the moment. FootJoy golf shoes. You guys should be on the lookout for these as well. Make sure they are the FootJoy Classics. Leather bottom and brass nail heel.

    Yep me too! Couldn't leave it behind. Too bad its a Long
    More pics to come tonight. I would have been fine on cast, but my Paypal transfer didn't come through in time. Guess it's time to sign up for the Paypal Debit Card.
    However...I was pretty beat after nearly 40 stores and 419 thrifting miles in 3 days, so Sunday was a much needed break.

    Gents, I have not been in here for months, but wanted to stop in and share a random story.

    Long story short, I have had to budget my time now that I have a baby on the way :slayer: I still PM a few people here, but my wardrobe is good enough for now, and heaven only knows children cost a lot of money!



    Anyway, I still try to get to thrift stores when I can. I usually only go when in bigger cities, and last weekend I was in Minneapolis to visit my wife's parents. I was running some errands and found a goodwill nearby (I stop in here twice a year) After browsing around and finding some hamilton shirts (bought for the MOP buttons) and a BB camel hair plaid SC (trad), I was checking out some jeans. As I am flipping through, SF member antirabbit walked in. I had thrifted with him once before in Minneapolis, but the odds of us both being in town the same weekend, and visiting the same shop at the same time have to be incredibly small! (he lives elsewhere, he visits a few times a year)



    Anyways, seeing him reminded me how great the community at SF can be, hope you all are doing well!
