    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.

    To get ideas and yet not spam the thread, start living on ebay completed. Take a picture of label, go home and look up. Rise, repeat. Only ask questions when you can't find something through google/ebay; that way you don't linger in people's minds as that guy.

    lol, because of your luck so far, this is the second time it's crossed my mind that you may be another member trolling

    Priced at $25 so I left it
    Can go back tomorrow fits about the same as a barbour with wide shoulders and shortish sleeves

    i apologize. i wasn't trying to spam. was at the GW store and it was closing and i was rushing to find some deals.

    this is what i ended up with at the end of my 45 minute rush through

    first up is a YSL blazer. couple of small stains and 1 tiny pinhole in the back. fits me perfect. dry cleaner might be able to help it...

    $8

    next is a tie. i liked it, decent brand too. (acutally its kinda ugly)

    $3

    last, but definitely not least is this wool coat. its too big for me (46) but i hope a tailor can help me fit in it. im a 42-44.

    $19.99

    Nice coat... advise from someone who thrifts a lot of stuff that does note fit. Sell it and put the money towards buying something on ebay or on sale that does fit. Spend more but use your thrifting money and it all evens out in the end without feeling bad about buying something you really want.

    :wow:
    Nice finds!
    I would indeed be on that in an instant. Sadly it seems that the OP is my size and knowing Filson sizing it would be way too big. I've been looking for a green Mackinaw though!

    So. Much. Win.



    You have GOT to be kidding me.
    Nice find, dude. Don't mind me while I jump off this nearby bridge, having been unable to find SQUAT for the past month.

    Beginner's. Luck.
