Great historical background CPTJEFF. Thanks!

Real and Complex analysis not too bad. There are far more evil mathematical subjects than this. I always hated Group Theory, dunno why.

Continuum Mechanics and all the tensor notations and differential geometry material, that was by far the hardest course I ever took. Statistical Mechanics was like a walk in the park. Quantum Mechanics - not too bad actually until it migrates to the higher level involving particles, random matrix theory, group theory, operational calculus and gauge theories...

Heck even Classical mechanics is a bieaatch - I remember having to solve numerous problems involving variational calculus. I always thought before I started that Classical Mechanics revolved around F = dp/dt in simple inertial frames. Found out it is way more difficult than that LOL... I dont think I ever got above a B in this course where I could score an A in Quantum...

Not a Physicist, started off in Physics but swapped out for Electronics and Communication Engineering. Still had to learn most the physics classes because 1/5 of the degree was solid state stuff (the department had way to many experts in Semiconductors and they biased their under and post grad degrees heavily this way).

All of this, and the best you could come up with for a handle was Klobber? For shame!

Yeah, Intermediate Mechanics was classical mechanics without all of the simplifying assumptions. It was a lot of page-long equations. 

 

I swapped out for Photography and was much happier lol8[1].gif

5 pairs of Church's (unworn - lightly worn) (ostrich, lizard, suede, leather)

Multiple of each below:

Jackets:
nwt: Gucci, Etro, Dolce & Gabanna, Moschino, Miu Miu, Burberry, Comme Des Garcons Homme+

Shirts:
helmut lang, bijan, 20 x crazy spoo-rific versace, issey miyake, dolce & gabbana, vivienne westwood, raf zimons, brioni, comme des garcons

and I'm closing another 2k item deal... more details on that after the break.

but uh... I'm taking real analysis and computability, and can't handle this thrifting/non-thrifting stuff... really overwhelmed...

just thought I'd share my frustration.

NOICE.

I'm doing real analysis and abstract algebra. Guess I won't be doing this much either.

On that note:

Picked up 6 x Brioni Super 150's pants. Pretty sure they're not orphans as they have the label inside the pants. And 5 x 15milmil Su Misura pants.

I am from England and slang for clothing / bling etc was Clobber. Replace the C with a K and I have a handle with bare minimum thought. Beats coming up with a good one and having to string a bunch of numbers to have it accepted.

Also, my brain is best served solving problems of a deeply philosophical nature, good brain power is wasted coming up with good handles nod[1].gif

Bottom Row: Ferragamo L, Ferragamo M

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

This is a mother of pearl button, pretty thick, with Zegna imprinted, wtf?!

 

Now I get the Borrelli hype.

 

 

The Rainbow.

 

 

Also left about a dozen or so shirts by Italian makers. Mostly Loro Piana in a L, XL. Surprisingly I ran out of cash.

 

DM I get to post once in the last three weeks and you are before me...I hate you.

Nice Haul. I'd pick up Loro Piana any day of the week over Zegna! Zegna are dime a dozen compared to LP.

just to make you feel better, im close to a 35k piece deal! its a mix of mens and womens, will let you guys know if deal gets done

Nice and Double Nice! icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gifThere has to be at least something my size in 35K items lol8[1].gif

not thrifting related, but so fucking fantastic of a fail that I had to share.

It's raining Brioni pants up in here. I scored 5 and 1 Pal Zileri. If you're a 42 waist, GET AT ME BRO! Left about 8 wild Maus & Hoffman's. But I did pick up a Samuelsohn (I think) for Maus & Hoffman 100% silk sport coat. Super recent - 2010. Fully canvassed. Pinkish red. Pics later.

I didn't originally know you were a Brit but I got the clobber/Klobber connection early on. Quite clever. Quite. Pip, pip! cheers.gif
