    Actually the thrifts are supposed to sift the stuff out. Someone posted something a while back that GW recycles the clothes that they can't resell.

    When people say that something is available does that mean that it is currently listed on B/S or that if someone PM's them they will give it for what they bought it for?

    Found this nice thick Alan Paine

    Was very happy when I saw these in my size (I thought) pretty cheap

    When I got home and tried to button them I heard a ripping sound

    I would guess they're more like 29 waist. Maybe thats how preshrunk sizes work?

    These were a little too tight in waist, so I sew in a "fat-strap" in the back

    If an Isaia with a hole was recent and fit me, I'd totally take a chance on the thrift price and send it to a reweaver to see if it could be fixed. Even if it cost $100-150, it'd be a bargain.

    I totally forgot to jot down the measurements on these three. They are all three roughly 38-40

    Clearly I need to get to the city more often.

    Seriously though, all donations help; for profits (v.v., talize) pay the associated charity by weight before the goods are sorted so if its on the floor there its because of lazy backroom staff, or they thought the label was enough to sell it, and goodwill/sa can bundle unsold clothes and flip them to textile re-manufacturers.


    You sure none of that stuff is on the block :thumbs-up:
