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.

    All of them are 0/XS. Fingers crossed. All the TB stuff is size 1. I may have fit into them in grade school, and by that I mean first or second grade.

    I skipped those sizes in life...thats my theory.

    -

    Wouldn't 0 be XXS, 1 = XS, 2=S, 3=M, 4=L, 5=XL

    Just speculation of course.

    Quite fashion forward, quality nothing special. They do a lot of poly blends. Fairly high (as in unmotivated) retail.

    You don't already? I tend to just look for nice prints (madras and fish and for hiking shorts). Makes the process super-quick... If something stands out, check it out. That's how I've scored Orlebar Brown, Arc'teryx and Assos cycling shorts from thrift stores.

    I gave a Sz 1 BoO to a friend of mine - he's like 5'5" and maybe 130. So as for sz 0 I have no clue.

    So another case of being a half day late and a dollar short (not a total loss). Pretty sure I missed out on some stuff from my favorite SW&D donor at my local thrift. Same size as me and has really good taste. He's donated Woolrich Woolen Mills, Simon Miller, Engineered Garments, Unis, etc in the past. I got a crazy pair of EG cargo pants a while ago that I'm pretty sure were his. All his stuff is like new too - worn maybe a few times. Simon Millers and EG I bought a while ago were NWOT.

    Sadly by the time I got there this morning the stuff was picked over and just a few pieces that were blown over were already put away off the new arrival racks. I'm sure they were missed because they were pants. I cringe to think about any shirts or outerwear that I missed out on.

    Here's what I did manage to find. Everything is N/A except the shoes.

    WWM. Fabric is pretty stiff, I'm pretty sure these are NWOT.

    Paid up for these but figured I'd take a shot in the dark on sneakers. They were in very good shape and had the look to perhaps be something valuable.

    Nice Finds! I wish I had someone donating quality stuff to the same store.

    I think I tracked one donor, because he always has a strong smell of cologne on his clothing

    BTW GUYS: Whats the hierarchy for outerwear? Where does arc'teryx,marmot, NF stand in the rankings?

    Arcteryx is pretty high end stuff, check their website for retail prices and it rarely goes on sale. Canada Goose and Moncler are higher in value but rare to find in thrifts

    north face has a wide range of value, and a lot of it I ignore

    Patagonia, Marmot, Mammut, Merrell, Prana etc are all in the middle tier category, many pieces are certainly worth picking up. For wool stuff: Smartwool, Icebreaker, Ibex are the big three, all of their stuff is coveted.

    If you are more interested check out sites like backcountry.com, REI, Cool store in Montreal is http://www.mec.ca/Main/home.jsp, since you are Canadian IIRC

    I broke down and bought a pair of Red Wing Beckmans on eBay for like $140 as few years ago. NWOB. Very happy with them.
    That label is way off and definitely fake but the waistband text font and everything look legit. Really odd......

    Nice someone recognizes where I live now, I feel somewhat happy about this. Thanks for the little guide, living in Canada is bringing me some decent outerwear gear. Picked up a smartwool sweater a couple weeks ago, didn't know it was up there with ibex.

    Here's that Sulka I found. It's pretty fucking cool. Lined with bemberg, a fabric that at this point in the thread has been mentioned 15 times, including quotes. I had never even heard of it before. Anyway, here are some bad pictures. It's a dark navy.
