Pics or it didn't happen -- mostly because, if they're available, I want to see if I like them.

I'd be surprised if there were ever pants for that jacket. Looks like a classic sport coat pattern to me.

Ill post shortly. They are all 16 1/2 but fit like a 16 or even a 15.75 (Piccolo's). Finamore is a 16. None are available! They are badass.

Thurr you go. I didn't put the jacket in, it's brown with green orange undertones, over dyed.

Salvatore Piccolo shirts are extremely well made, tons of handwork
post #76942 of 115187
The fabrics on piccolos are amazing too. They do not seem flimsy like many other heavy on the handwork shirts.

BB Blackwatch at thrift prices are an instakop. So many people (even here) want a pair you can always trade.

where my vintage electronics/vinyl heads at?

I am looking to upgrade my setup right now I have 1/2 of a shitty dj setup (doesn't even have a dust cover)

I am looking for a turntable that doesn't require a receiver (does that even exist? I am just trying to have it be able to hookup straight into my speakers)

if possible (if they even exist) a usb input so I can plug in an ipod or computer

minimalist aesthetics

a mid tier brand/price

or you know just a regular ass turntable

I don't think you can do a TT without an amp. As far as the USB question goes, are you asking about plugging an ipod or computer through a TT, or running a TT into a computer to rip records? The latter is doable with a USB TT but in my experience it's just as easy (and much cheaper) to run a line out of your amp through something like this: http://www.macnn.com/reviews/ads-tech-instant-music.html and then run the USB from that... or you can do it even cheaper and dirtier with an RCA to 1/8" stereo jack out of your amp's line out and into the line in on your computer.

I bought a Stanton T-90 USB TT a number of years ago and had problem after problem with it, and it was way more expensive than just buying a decent direct drive TT without the USB features. There's one of the converter units on eBay right now for $20 (not my auction). http://www.ebay.ca/itm/ADS-Tech-Instant-Music-RDX-150-Convert-LPs-Cassettes-to-CD-MP3-iPod-/121146706283?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item1c34e8096b&_uhb=1

Ugh
I have been so busy lately. No thrift stores in like... 12 days. So everybody that thrifts where I do, you're welcome. Bad news is, I think it's time to start putting in those 10 hour thrift store days again for a bit.

Was picking something up today unrelated, had time for one store:

Boom. Down + leather vest.

+1. A turntable without an amp isn't a good idea. Besides a USB model and some all-in-one units that include speakers which suck, you don't really have a choice.

My advice:

Go seek out a nice vintage receiver and turntable that you can hook your speakers up to. You could probably score a nice setup off Craigslist for under $150 (under $100 if you're looking at the right time). You can thank me later. The sound will be way better than from a USB model hooked to a computer or an all-in-one unit.

Someone needs to change their pages per thread to 100. Waay too much clicking otherwise.
