Ok, cool, I took a chance on it cause it looked "good". I got a Thoréns and a technics and both need new needles. It was cheaper buying this, and it sounds better too!

I've been looking for a decent turntable for years and haven't seen $hit. That's the reason I started going to thrift stores in the first place.
post #54678 of 102566
I used to find them pretty often years ago (mostly Technics) but these days it's a rare find indeed. It's tough to even find the garbage Realistic junk from Radio Shack, let alone a Dual or Thorens. I've been lucky to have bought a few to have around the house as these days you have better luck coming across a nice recent Brioni dress shirt in your size than a decent turntable.

One of my grail finds is a Dual 701 I picked up last year. Still has the original box, packing materials and owners manual. The thing is mint. Paid $15 for it. Box is in the crawl space and the TT is hooked up in my record room. Love it!

Best part: the Finamores, Oxxford, and Isaia are 16 35s and fit excellently. Not pictured is a nice Zegna button down, also my size. bigstar[1].gif

OOOHHHHH, Black Label Finamore too!

Peep the shoulder seams on that shit.

 

So jealous of this haul!

 

Although I had my moment a couple of days ago with a haul that fished 3 Borrelli's and a Finamore Black Label, Only 2 of the Borrelli's were able to pass my quality control and will be making it to my virtual sales floor on the 'bay.

 

Its been dry as fuck here the last couple of days. I need to expand or something.

I managed to stockpile four before the well ran dry. Still run across them once in awhile, though. Aching to try a Yamaha PX-3 linear tracking TT I scored in August on CL for $100. Unfortunately, the dust cover is missing (which I understand is common) and the legs are also missing (which I understand is also common but no big deal). Owing to remodeling, I haven't been able to set it up yet, but I should be good to go by Christmas. Can't wait.

I left work at 3:30 for good, so I'm now unemployed until Monday. After two+ years, my boss simply shook my hand and told me good luck. Whatever, dude. The worst part is my replacement is literally making a house down payment more than I was simply because he's been a B2B journalist for 10 more years. Does he have a master's degree? Nope. What about web experience, or knowledge of InDesign? Nope. Knowledge of the industry? Nope.

Dual recordplayer, really like the sound. (edit, pretty good price (?) at 14$)

 

 

 

 

 

 

What size are the riding boots? Any brand or info on the inside?

 

The Dual is a great find! Congratulations!

No, sorry, unemployed until Monday, when I start my new job. I was just bitching that because I'm 29 and the new guy has a salary history 10 years longer than mine, he gets to make 70,000 for doing less than me.

post #54689 of 102566

also the other suit came

I think this one fits even better to begin with (plus has side vents), I think I will have to do less tailoring and it fits me shoulder and length of jacket wise unlike some other things I have posted. I am for sure going to add a good deal more waist suppression and lengthen the sleeves so they are even, and the pants are going to be slimmed. I think once all that is done I wont be in the suit more than $100 also there is a lot of extra fabric underneath the pants should I add a cuff? this is going to be my more formal suit so I am thinking not? also is it possible to take extra fabric and take off the belt loops and make side adjusters? if so I am going to do that on both suit, any idea how expensive that would be?

I still am definitly going to slim the pants though

I'll take your soul.

Sounds like you're purging your entire wardrobe, moving from boyhood to manhood. Good job, wish I started caring about my clothes sooner.
