Quick stop in at the zoo today, picked up four great medium Brooks Brothers fine merino sweaters (sorry for the quick photo):

 

 

First two are the same thick quarter zipper model, blue with stripes is a light crewneck and the bottom purple one is thin and almost polo shirt like. Not really the season for them, but will keep nicely!

 

Happy Independence Day, everyone!

My great great great grandfather owned a candy shop and general store about a block from the original brewery in 1910. They lived upstairs. I wonder how much of this shit he drank.

SWEET! I'll spoiler so we dont have to see them all AGAIN...... but I hate how your pictures always make the shoes look small for some reason and it gets me excited.

 

VTG Gucci are bad ass and if the Bally wings happen to be small hit me up.

Yeah, Pnut makes a good point.  In terms of actual quality trombones, though, most of the Conn you'll see is low-grade stuff (although they do have a couple of professional models).  If you see a trombone with extra tubing at the top and a thumb-valve near where the main slide connects, that's usually a good sign -- they don't put that on starter models, only on college-level and up.  There are of course higher-grade jazz models and trombones for upper-range parts that lack this feature, but generally that's a good start.  Also, hold the assembled trombone by the joint and feel for balance -- like a good blade it should feel stable about this point, and not top- or bottom-heavy.  (I used to play trombone through college.)

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

I picked up a trumpet at SA few years back--can't recall the brand--and flipped it on CL with no trouble for a pretty nice profit. From my days in high school band, I knew that the valves worked, didn't leak when played and neither slides nor the mouthpiece were stuck. It also had a case. Given that, picking it up was an easy call, especially because I found it during the summer, not long before the start of school. Considering the cost of renting, parents on a budget are happy to pay $200 or so for a serviceable instrument for a kid just starting out. If that Conn was south of $50, not in need of repair, came with a case and not all dented up, I don't think that the model would matter.

 

 

Yeah I am looking for a new phone but all the new ones I've seen are larger than my current one, and it irritates me since my current one fits.  As for a wallet, I just have one of those cardholders -- 2 ID's, 2 cards, insurance card, and then cash (I hate carrying cash, but if need be) in a moneyclip.  Sleek, and without excess bulk.

Seriously! I can't fit my iphone in some of my jeans and need to only bring cash and a cc card - no wallet.

It was a few bucks so I picked up just from pure intrigue.

 

That garment bag is great.  I've been looking for one similar, for those long weekends.  Chesterfield is pretty awesome, too.
