"Thrifters have too much sh*t. You get used to not getting exactly what you want so you tend to buy everything that even comes close."
I agreed with him then and still do, and responded with my 7th post ( this one will be #561). Still we slip sometimes, and a well loved if useless item comes to stay in our closets. But eventually, we must say goodbye.

...it never really fit right, and I guess I always knew it. Some of you even told me so, but I didn't listen. The coat is too nice, and I wanted it for my own. But with my own closets strained now to the bursting point, it's time to let this bird go. After all, the days of me and size 40 regular aren't even in the rear view anymore, I've driven so far past them. So it is with no small amount of sadness that I put this one up in the Shop. I thought about saving it for the Flea, but this way there's a slim chance it goes back to England, where it rightly belongs.
In any case, I beg one of you to give it a good home, and wear it well. I apologize for the underlying commercialism of this post, but a special piece deserves a special send off.
p.s. other new items available in the Shop as well.
