    Ahh... that's something to be wary of. Some of the newer Klipsch sets are not that great or valuable. Like some of the Klipsch THX sets, or the sets for PC's.... They're not terrible or anything, and for cheap they're nice speakers... But nowhere near the quality or value of things like their RF or RS series speakers. Even some of the smaller bookshelf Klipsch's are great.

    I used to have a Klipsch 5.1 system in my room, but it has since been scattered among other rooms and houses. My dad is a total Klipsch junkie. We must have like 10 pairs of them in various forms. Be on the lookout for older Klipsch speakers like their "Cornwall" or "La Scala" or "Corner Horns".

    NOt really sure who made these but I was able to make out some Chinese characters "day 15 wash." Maybe some Chinese guy wore these and kept their washing dates? lolz

    Camacuna,

    Nothing on google except that it was a trademark for Londontown Manufacturing Company, now expired as of 1992. Lists as "FABRIC MADE UP INTO TOP COATS, CAR COATS, RAIN COATS, AND JACKETS FOR MEN, WOMEN, AND CHILDREN." No actual mention of the makeup of the fabric.

    Obviously meant to invoke both Camel hair and Vicuna. My guess is that it would be impossible to do more than just mention Vicuna (maybe with a question mark?) in any listing with no content tag. You know better than me how coats sell for you but in general, I find coats to be a tough purchase because of their weight. Of course, since I don't sell direct, I first have to ship to SPOO and he generally does not sell much of that stuff anyway.

    Good luck,
