I've gotten about 8 genuine leather jackets and 3 pairs XL genuine leather trousers from thrifting. I took a liking to one of the jackets, and now wear it; the rest is consigned to become crafting material. Also, other assorted goods, like fabric, bags, belts which can be scavenged in various ways and put into use. I have a dozen or so belt buckles from thrifting that more-or-less match the silhouette if not the detailing of Saxon, Norman and Viking belt buckles (comparing them to this article and items from Raymond's Quiet Press), minus the mounting plates which I've cut from sheet but thus far have had trouble riveting onto my belt blanks. :x

So yeah, thrifting is awesome. Most of the jackets and such were $1 each. 2 yards of cloth for $2. Belts for 50 cents. Only got 20 dollers in my pocket.

$1? What the heck. A lot of people love wearing old leathers that are scraped/messed up and broken in. I'm gonna have to pay more attention to Goodwill, though I do worry about... things... coming home with Goodwill purchases. :9

Yep. The one jacket that I wear was $1. It's an italian cut three-button jacket with notch lapels in very soft black leather. It is perhaps slightly too small, but this fits my style, and the sleeves are not short enough to be terribly off-putting, especially worn overtop my black/blue highlight zip-up hoodie (with which it looks fabulous).

it's also technically a women's jacket but FORNICATE THE CONSTABULARY

Well, it has happened ... my last day of fulltime work was today.
Now ... to venture forth into the days coming and see if the ideas I've had can fly ... or where the wind will take it ...
Wishing I could've made one more BF order though, but I had several things to get paid off - to lessen my needed budget ...

Hoping in the next week to get my latest three Power Assault Commando's cleaned and then probably rephoto the group with the new colors. And, rephoto the 'active BF greens', since the previous pic has a 'retired' color in it now.

@Thrifting: Agreed, few things beat cool clothes for little money. A good deal of my stuff comes from thrifts shops and flea markets as well.

So, the latest English assignment in my 7-man class is about narcisissim on the internet, and the texts we're to base it on particularly lashes out at bloggers, of which we have two in the class. I have a feeling their papers are going to be an interesting read ;9

Hah. I go to Michigan Tech and it's 10 hours from where I live, which is in the same state.

And SV, I don't think she does geeky stuff. She should, and is totally geeky in other ways but not game geeky.

Leather is kinda comfy, best of luck to you in your belt making endeavors.

I live about 5 hours from anywhere of significant size, except for the world's smallest Walmart, in Gunnison, which is half an hour away.

Ohh noes! The new eevee evolution is so darn ugly, it doesn't look like any of the cool eeveelutions, such as Umbreon.

How is that possible? Michigan Tech is 11 and half hours from me and I'm in Cincinnati.
