post #40036 of 102762

PSA I know there is a lurker or noob out there somewhere who is about my size and needs a solid start into MC. I have WAY too much volume right now (~50 pants and shirts), so if you can rock a 34' waist and a 16/16.5 shirt (regardless of length on either, get at me, as I have a wide variety). What you can expect is decent shirts and pants at true THRIFT prices ~$5 per shirt and pants for Zanella or similar pants, and Ike Behar or similar shirts. I'm not touting this stuff as the best clothing on the planet, but its all respectable, and you won't get a better deal. So in short, if your approx. 16 shirt and 34 pants hollachaboy to fill out a fledgling MC closet. I also have a variety of SC/Suits in 40R/42R which I will also let go at thrift prices. Someone please help me clear this shit out without redonating or taking the time to make a ton of ebay listings, I want them in a good home.

Very carefully phrased, because the other one should be killed with FIRE! (Sorry, barrelntrigger).

Apropos of nothing: has anyone else been having trouble with getting emails from styleforum? Mine just stopped. I guess I should check my spam folders....

Emails from PM's always come. Daily subscription emails are hit and miss.

I get one update email about every week and a half. Not that I need it anyway.

Good stuff my man! On another note, got back from a mini vacation to find 200+ unread posts. Good job guys! I'm glad we are back to posting cool finds. Nothing much from me lately I'm afraid, however I did pick up a super boss Toshiba ghetto blaster. Thing weighs about 30 pounds and originally came with a remote, alas, it was nowhere to be found. I'm going to try to get my computer fixed today, so hopefully I can start posting pics again soon.

I turned off all subscription emails, they are pointless.  I have retained PM emails and I get them almost instantaneously.  If you find that you are not receiving them, add the email address "notifications@styleforum.net" to your contacts list to avoid messages being relegated to the spam folder.

 

amazing haul dm7, your finds give me inspiration to get out and thrift, but also make it feel pointless because I know I will never score quite like that!

Sorry for the double post, I also picked up a POW J Press jacket, fits me pretty well but I've got enough of those as it is so I'm going to offer it up here for cost plus shipping. Pics to come. Also want to give a shout out to TDP, ocoony, 330CK, Horse's_Ass, and everybody else that I've recently done trades/sales with. A pleasure as always, gentlemen. cheers.gif

Those Zegna's are kind of hideous. The Charvet is very nice though. 

Kind of hideous is putting it nicely

Hahaha, it's ok, honesty is appreciated. After 30 min. at the GW, I lost my will to thrift. I picked those up only to have something to show for. I'll try to sell it on the bay and maybe some lucky person will burn it for me.

DM7: As everyone else said, Wow! Epic post - 40k was just icing on the cake! Good to see you're still around!

These things are $$$$. The bigger and heavier, the better. These are usually the ones with two antennas (Rabbit-ear style). Nice find! Care to share which model it is?

as exciting as those were there was only one item that really blew my mind (im a bit jaded after all these years of finding shit)

 

a brand new never ridden 1971 Japanese Bridgestone bike with the warranty card and instruction s still attached at a goodwill for $100 ( a guy fooowed me to the parking lot and offered me $500 on the spot but this one is a keeper).

all the lights still work,has the original Primus pump and tools in tool box.i cant even find a a pic of a used one never mind a new one.

the only pic i could find is in a Bridgestone Brochure from 1971

this thing is heavy but its fast
