1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Great second post. Probably it was a typo and he was trying to type "vinyl."

    I pretty clearly understood that but with the s making it plural it's incorrect. Not intending to sound belittling its just a common misconception that bothers me.

    Hot water, much more Oxyclean than the label tells you, and lots of time.

    lol i was about to quote these posts too. I have them copied to my clipboard and everything.

    You have to quote the fit, though. The way it on him makes it twice as good.

    Not so much a "discount store item", but I scored a killer pair of Raichle hiking boots off Ebay.

    These are from the late 80s, I think. Damn good condition... Price? I consider it a trade for the part of the profit from the Crockett & Jones shoes I sold on Saturday. [​IMG]

    Make sure to check for stains in unusual places. Also, make sure there aren't any wear marks. NWOT could be tricky sometimes. lol had to tone down the content.

    I just call it round plastic discs.

    INSANE knitwear haul today. Haven't thrifted in awhile but following this thread again got the juices so I hit one of my old haunts. All 100% cashmere, all mint condition - and all my size :D. Gray ribbed sweater is Cucinelli - hang label is missing. Was never that impressed with Cucinelli's tailored and other stuff - now I understand why they are known for knits - this stuff is REDONK. Total cost around $40. NOT AVAILABLE

    Ran a couple doors down the block while my take-out lunch was being made today. It's amazing what you can pickup in the time it takes to make a sandwich!

    L to R: Oxxford, Bespoke H-F blazer, Oxxford 120s, H-F 100% cashmere houndstooth. All are tagged 42L except the bespoke, but it appears to be from the same closet.

    Hanging out with her in a bit and fully expect to share the gist of the posts here. She'll crack up because she's that cool.

    So I still haven't gotten to photograph the jackets I picked up yesterday... Probably won't till this weekend, and now, well um...

    Randomore =
    [​IMG]

    Seriously... I'll say this, most of the vinyl was picked over already, had I been a few hours earlier god knows what I would have ended up with.
    What I got:
    Police- Outlandos d' Amour
    MJ- Thriller
    The Who- Quadrophenia and Live at Leeds
    Queen- Greatest Hits
    Neil Diamond- Greatest Hits V.2 because fuck it why not haha
    YES- The Yes album and Fragile
    Cheap Trick- Live at Budokan
    The Rolling Stones- Some Girls and Sucking in the Seventies

    I wish they had all been $.95 but this shop was more than reasonable in its pricing. Left behind basically all of Santana's works, some Petty, a bunch of Jackson 5 / MJ off the wall, and a few other random bands.

    Super bummed I missed out on (and by that I totally walked past it, only seeing the corner of it and it not registering) an original Reservoir Dogs poster from 1992, framed and ready to roll for $4.

    On the plus side, I looked at the shirt section. Skeets, kats, borrs, batts, golden turds a plenty. Well singular examples of each, but it sounded better plural. And I couldn't come up with any animal placeholders for Etro and Zegna Sport so yeah those too. I would pay money to have a photograph of how big my eyes got upon finding some of them.

    Hello fellow thrifters!

    I come with a question today....

    I recently stopped by a consignment store and my GF fell in love with a Gucci dress they had - the price is more than I would like it to be - but she quite likes it, so I am wondering if anyone can verify authenticity of this dress from pictures..... and maybe a ballpark of what they think it should be worth incase I really am getting ripped off....


    Thanks a ton!

    Here it is: (Sorry about the crappy pics)
