The stage was set: There was an hour left in the auction, only one other bidder had cared to chime in, I was on top by at least $10, and it seemed like I was going to have this one in the bag. For a cool $70, I was about to walk away with a Mister Freedom X Sugarcane Chambray shirt. Excited was an understatement. To pass the time, I decided to get out, take a walk, and rely on mobile notifications to tell me when I won. Par for the course, ran into a friend while walking around and before I knew it, a good hour and a half has gone by. Much to my chagrin, I had a notification that I had indeed lost the shirt to another high bidder. However, when i saw the final price and the 15 other bidders that had played the game, I was glad to have retained $135 for which the chambray went.
Naturally, I checked Mister Freedom’s site, and realized that I must get to LA now and check out the goods for myself. And now that I got wind this morning that my buddy, who indeed lives in the city of angels is getting married, it’s all the more reason to finally head West, young man.
