    I am actually disappointed to hear this. I was kinda hoping to visit places Jesse visited in the NYC episode of Put This On's second season in my next visit to the city.*

    On that note, where are the places that you guys had best thrifting experience? I assume LA area?

    * Does anybody actually know thrift shops they visit from this episode? Only thing I could tell was that one place is Salvation Army somewhere in Manhattan. I've inquired Jesse about this when it was first aired, but still haven't heard back from him yet.

    So I was having a bad day, wasn't happy at all, and decided hey, lets see if the thrift gods shit on me too.

    Strolling through the shoes I see a pair that wasn't there yesterday (yeah having a shop like a quarter mile away, if that, is taking its toll). I find that they have those super shitty white perforated insoles in them and for some reason (maybe it was the welt) I decided it was worth peeling the stuck-down insole back to see who was down there...

    Well hello there. That's all you get of those till they're cleaned up. I have a feeling they may still go back though.

    Then I found these, figured I'd grab them if for no other reason to find out more about them/Der Bomber. What's the deal with this sole? 3 brass rivets in the front, one in the rear.

    These were the most expensive of the night -

    Nwot Timberland Abington suede and canvas boat shoes(?). Sewn down leather welt and near spotless vibram soles. Maybe tried on on some carpet. Size..... 14 of all things. Looked these up, spring 2010 apparently.

    Clothing wise, all I grabbed was this

    Seemed pretty nice, is it? One small spot on the shoulder I'm going to try getting rid of.

    So, I guess I wasn't completely shat on, but maybe partially. Also officially recognizing / being recognized by regulars at this store. There's "Cellphone Jose" ( I think I heard him being called that, always checking things on his phone) "The Maven" (50 something woman always sitting down waiting for the next cart/rack to roll out, either on her laptop or phone), and a somewhat gorgeous girl that looks like she has no place being there as often as she is. Very well put together and bubbly. Shares her name with my ex, which you'd think would be enough of a deterrent. Wait, what... Are our 60 minutes up already doc? [​IMG]

    PRL shirts come in varying levels of quality. The nicest PRL shirts have the cursive label underneath the Polo Ralph Lauren label, like yours ("Custom Fit" is in cursive font). All the cursive label shirts that I have seen do not have the polo on the front (some of them have them on one of the side gussets) and have decent-sized MoP buttons.

    Testoni in my size!! Unfortunately the previous owner cut out the leather under the tongue (who takes a knife to $400 shoes?), but they fit and were cheap.
