    Shout out to @Orgetorix for the heads up on those Zegnas! Picked up two of the windowpane sport coats during lunch, looks to be enough material to let the sleeves. Weirdly enough they had them marked as suits and randomly paired with a pair of Samuelsohn wool pants to one and Zanella pants to the other. Pics to come.

    Looks like someone else saw them and picked a couple but there is still two suits and the light blue sport coat (killer paisley lining) still there. Very reasonable prices.

    Just thrifted a Nikon Callaway LR550 Waterproof rangefinder with case, 100% functionable. Great freaking find for me, as I am very into golf. However, I am selling it due to currently having a new model. [​IMG]

    Glad you go them, man. I was there probably just a bit before you picking up two of the suits for Nataku.

    Thanks, in love with the color schemes. My office is moving locations into a much nice part of downtown/building so I need to step by my work attire. I've been able to skate by for a while.

    Did you grab that shearling as well? Was gone by the time I got there.

    Camera Dudes: I was at an estate sale and they had a Nikon D3100 with bag and an extra lens. I didn't right down the lens size, the sale was swamped and I had my hands full. They wanted $300. Should I have kopped it. I checked ebay and one just like it (I think) sold for $600 and a bunch of them with more lenses and accessories sold for MUCH more.

    ALSO, I have a Nikon D40 and Canon Rebel EOS and I am trying to decide which one to keep and which one to sell. OR, maybe sell them both and buy the D3100?

    I fully intended on using one of these cameras for ebay stuff and also just to have a nice camera. BUT, I have found that my damn I-Phone takes very good pictures and it is so handy to use and upload the pics (I don't mean very good like @capnwes type pictures. But, pretty good.

    Also, yesterday I was at the Police evidence room taking pictures of some stuff for some of my cases. I don't know if it was the lighting or perhaps I had the Canon on the wrong settings, but for really close up detailed pictures my I Phone 5S actually took better pictures.

    If this is the wrong forum for all this, I'm sorry. I could post it somewhere else. Its just this group seems to have the knowledge for this.

    @Nobleprofessor my phone camera also takes better pics than my DSLR in many instances. Kinda pisses me off - must have the settings wrong on my DSLR.

    Here is the Aria I was talking about:



    Here are the four BIG Soprano Aria from Carmina Burana. I'm sure I sound dorky, but these give me chills. The whole production of Carmina Burana is an amazing experience.

    I've noticed it's all about lighting.

    I can take some killer photos with my iPhone 6, but lighting needs to be near perfect. Whereas with my DSLR (Canon Rebel EOS) I can sort of make up for less than ideal lighting. Comes in really handy when you're in an apartment and don't have a dedicated photo station. First thing I do when I get a house will be to make one spot designated for photos.
