An Amazing Goodwill Find

As you all know, I like to frequent Goodwill stores.  You never know what you’ll find.  Yes, I’ve had some great luck through the years, and ever once in a while, there is a find worth sharing.  Today I found something that is worthy of a post.  In fact, I couldn’t wait to get these on the blog.

Patagonia Stand Up Shorts are my absolute favorite shorts.  I have been wearing them forever, and will continue to wear them.  I like the they are starting to add some vintage colors…  Anyway, I came across these today:

Sure, they look like your normal 5″ Stand Ups, and they are in surprisingly good shape.  Like the ‘never been dried’ good shape.  And the famous back pockets:

Ahh yes.  But wait – does that Patagonia tag look a little strange?  Humm…it doesn’t say ‘Organic Cotton’, like they have for the last 15 or so years

Oh that’s why – these are the ORIGINAL Stand Up Shorts, in impeccable shape.  Please and thank you.

The only problem?  They aren’t my size.  These are a size 32, so they are available…anyone interested?  Send me an email with serious offers…

    Would you sell them to a fellow bulldawg? If you bring them to Athens next home game I’ll throw you cash and buy you a beer.

    Those are rare indeed! The Original’s did not have the 3rd read “wallet” pocket on the right side that more recent versions have.
