Sorry for a bunch of questions. are there any blemishes or wear? how padded are the shoulders? Are they actually that wide, seems a bit big for a 36s.
What do you mean when you say you had them taken in at the shoulder? also, what's the measurement across the shoulder and p2p and what's the opening on the hem?
Nice grados. I have a pair of SR60s that I enjoy for certain moods. I find them to be a bit bright for my tastes but run through my Marantz 1060 and a bit of EQ they smooth out quite nicely. I've said it over and over. At my age, this is all i need. Bulletproof, solid power, well known for its phono pre-amp and good classic marantz sound for a reasonable price, even though the prices have risen since I purchased this 4 or 5 years ago. Also, the hipsters, they swoon.

I should add that Saji's is best for their Katsu, mackerel and donburi. They serve sushi, but I've never dared to try...

good point about the whole cookie, it's a meal. i'll definitely have to check it out then. thanks for the tip.
Is it better than ippudo? If so I must try it. Either way I will though. And again, I repeat, get a levain cookie
I second chicken and rice (or third) definitely get the lamb/chicken combo and go to the cart on the southeast corner. During the daytime the southwest corner cart is a different crew. look for the yellow hallal bags and sweatshirts/tshirts. also hagi sake bar and grill (52?) right around midtown. it's in a basement, its open until 4 am. They have sake and they have a grill. yakitori, yaki soba, hamachi kama, so good. they've raised their prices a bit but it still comes...
