The question is, did you buy the records?
post #77177 of 113175
No. I thought I'd spread the word.
Plus, I have a shoebox full of 'em in the attic!

Had to google it and found a review by a guy who you opened for at one time. He has both of your songs up, my money is on the Drummer since they are usually the classy one in the band... lol8[1].gif rimshot.gif

Question about Tweeds. I haven't come across many outside the Stafford/Towncraft stuff but I ran across Harris Tweed and Donegal II yesterday which I didn't pick up because of my lack of knowledge. Are these tweed brands that flip pretty well? Both are those multi-colored Ted Mosby type tweeds. Is there major Tweed brands I should be on the lookout for beside the major suit brands (Brioni, Kiton, etc)?

Never heard of them either - but seems like they are a Bone Marrow cancer research thing. See below. Just thought the skull and crossbones thing was cool.

Two ties I scooped up yesterday. The first non-flame worthy Rubinacci I've ever come across, and the holy grail of all thrifted ties, the navy grenadine. This one is RT. biggrin.gif

This is amazing! I've gotta start checking the wimmenz section. Also, navy grenadine is a grail find, no matter what tag.

Do not cop unless it fits very well for you and have modern styling. There are tons of Harris Tweed out there. Only cop the ones with flipable makers (insert SF approved brands biggrin.gif) if you want to flip. There are tons of Harris Tweeds on fleabay. Most are fused and very little to none handy work. I used to cop Harris Tweed but now, I pass most of the time. The best Harris Tweed I coped was one made by Paul Stuart. Awesome and stylish but wasn't my size...so I had to trade it. cry.gif

I'm sure there are three more floating around from when the barbershop quartet broke up!

Let the drummer jokes begin!

What do you say to a drummer in a three-piece suit?
"Will the defendant please rise?"

Just kidding... Where would be without you drummers?

Was there a conversation here about Oxxford having their made in Italy shirts done by Kiton? Or am I remembering that wrong.
