What’s the meaning of “I’d say”?

In a discussion on closets, person A posted a picture of his closet and person B made a comment on it:

Cowboy boots in the north WTF,
and who needs that many hats?

Person A then replies:

I’ve cleaned it up since. Lots of leftover questionable clothes and shoes from my younger days…

The cowboy boots stayed though because they’re f-ing awesome.

Person B then says:

I’d say. I see that tennis ball yellow piece of clothing there :puke:

In person B’s last comment, when he said “I’d say”, what does that mean? I know that I’d means I would, but what does say mean? Does he mean he agrees with person A’s comment “Lots of leftover questionable clothes and shoes from my younger days…”?


It’s short for:

I would say so [as well].

say has it’s normal meaning: to communicate.

In other words it means I agree with you.

There’s two possible thing they could be agreeing with:
1 that the cowboy boots are f-in’ awesome.
2 that there was lots of questionable clothing leftover.

It’s likely that they mean the latter since they follow it up with a comment about the questionable nature of the tennis ball yellow piece. But they could be trying to remain intentionally ambiguous because they might think the boots should go as well.
