    Still have a bunch of larger size pants, in 36-40 for trade. Some are listed on B&S many aren't. I am looking for pants in size 33 or 34. All my stuff is BNWT or BNWOT.

    Know the BB shirts you pass at thrifts? Not slim fit, not black fleece, but the normal long sleeve/button up makers/traditional/346/sport. I'm up for buying them at $7 per provided they're in very good+ to excellent condition and you have at least five. I'll pay for shipping to, provided you ship in an RRA2 box. I am planning to flip them, but I figure if you're getting them at 350-4 per, that's an extra $3 every second/third stop.

    I can't remember the last time I saw a BB shirt priced that low in a THRIFT SHOP.

    My local GW's charge a flat $5.24 per shirt, and at best I grab one out of ten that I inspect in-store...

    BB shirts are usually marked up around here. I've found Kiton shirts marked $5,99 sitting next to Brooks Brothers at $9.99.

    Around here shirts are 3.75 or 4 at GW + tax. I figured there would be other places around the country that were similar. I also knew that in other places prices would be higher, but the numbers I used couldn't accommodate that (maybe that can change, but I'm trying to keep myself safe). I did not at all mean to insult anyone, but that price is borne of the conclusion I came to from excel.

    Anyways, I've got this for a little while before I throw it up on that other place:

    Ticket pocket, pick stitching, dual vented.

    If anyone comes across fly fishing gear (vests, nets, rods/reels, etc.), let me know! I'm trying to get back to an old obsession that I haven't fed for a number of years.
