    Yea the broke and Bespoke guy is my mortal enemy because we seem to wear the same size in shoes and clothing! lol.
    It's a good thing jonATL doesn't live near me because he finds tons of stuff and I think we're about the same size.

      Nice finds! I like the personal-use shirts.

        Scored big time yesterday! Thrifted one of the new Neiman Marcus & Target dresses by Robert Rodriguez (NWT!) for $9.99. Retail right now is $99.99. I also got some H&M blazers for $6 each, but that's small time in comparison.

                Full Suit, nearly mint..I know, I know..but he's a good friend and could use a pick-me-up after the whole Sandy/Hurricane ordeal.
                The damn suit is beautiful.

                  Well, major karma points for you, I guess.

                  If you find another $10 Purple Label in a 39 S, I'll be your very best buddy.

                        That almost looks like a winner's(Ross equivalent in Canada) I don't think we have crazy thrift stores like that up here...

                          I went into 3 different Goodwill stores today and found at least 7 pairs of Allen Edmonds ranging between $9.99 and $16.99. All of them looked like smaller sizes (8-10). Are these worth picking up in the future to pass on to others here? Are there only certain styles that are popular or are any AE's in decent shape worth the $10-20?

                            Generally they can be sold on eBay. However, use your judgement as there are some ugly old AE models out there. If they are attractive and in decent shape for under $20 I would jump on them.

                              Well, here are the first finds for me in about three weeks. It's frustrating only being able to get out on the weekends.

                                I got me a RL Purple Label rain overcoat last night for $12.99 from Goodwill. I had the seams and construction checked to be sure it's the real deal. Just awesome stuff!
