    Awesome! I rode a 650 SV a bit after I got my endorsement and before I decided against buying a bike. You are correct, the throttle is really smooth and doesn't have the peaky power band sport bikes do. Extremely forgiving and nicely predictable. Congrats and enjoy!

    I still toss around the idea of grabbing a duc monster. Love the naked farings. You got a pretty damn good deal on that man!:slayer:

    [​IMG] still fuzzy with a little lemon stitch hanging out. I'm guessing around 1965.

    This is also around what I was thinking. Though I would say 1971 - 1976. His jeans have the single-stitched back pockets, which are thought to be pre-'76. The little e is generally thought to be made from '71+, and of course the rivets show that it's definitely '66+.

    I have a similar pair that I wear often, but they have the chain-stitched back pockets putting it at '76+. I think i eventually dated them to 1976-1981.

    So I had a pretty good week...


    Copped all this stuff for super cheap last week:

    [​IMG]
    Various J.crew, Gant, etc shirts and sweaters... The NWT sweater is women's.

    [​IMG]
    Some low-grade selvedge. 2 pairs of UB 201's, 2 pairs of Uni-Qlos, and some random brand that didn't seem that good.

    [​IMG]
    More J.crew / etc shirts.


    But I don't like to mess around with that lower grade stuff... Sold all of that to Buffalo Exchange, then re-invested that money into these items:

    [​IMG]
    RRL Western Shirt

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]
    Nice pair of Tellason John Graham Mellors. These came out on a fresh rack right as I was about to leave the store. Love when that happens. [​IMG]

    Saw this nice Indigo fabric sticking out of the sweater rack. Had to investigate.


    [​IMG]
    Yes. Knew that Indigo had to be something. Fit on this is perfect. N/A.

    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]
    POP! (On a shirt anyways) I figured this was worth maybe $50-60 on eBay... Checked the prices when I got home and was surprised to see them going for $100-150. [​IMG]


    [​IMG]
    Pretty decent looking belt sitting on the rack. Was surprised to turn it over and see this:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]
    POP! (on true thrift gator). At first I didn't pay any attention to the belt buckle, but inspected it more closely later on...

    [​IMG]
    Been Had.

    [​IMG]
    1/20th 12K Gold Filled. Pop on first thrifted "Gold". Was stoked to find this paired up with the Gator belt.


    [​IMG]
    Killer Armani Collezioni suit. Super recent make, and in excellent shape.

    My first time seeing this neck label. I knew exactly what it was.


    [​IMG]
    POP! Have found couture shirts and tie before, but never a tailored piece. Such great workmanship on these.

    [​IMG]
    5% Cashmere Fabric

    Dat fabric flap.

    [​IMG]
    Doze surgeon's cuffs.

    Not "true thrift" prices, but still plenty of room for flippage.


    Last but not least...

    Size 3 and 4. NWOT condition. MSRP for these is $470 ea, but they seem to be sold out everywhere... Every online retailer, and none on eBay or Grailed.


    I have 2 of them. Pretty sure I hit the fucking jackpot with these.

    God damn I love doing this. [​IMG]

    So, I have a little problem, my phone has decided to go kaput on me, and I lack the funds to go picked up another one right now. Would any of you happen to have a spare phone you'd be willing to trade? Needs to be Tmobile, or ATT. Thanks guys.

    Hit a couple yard sales and a SA this weekend. Trying to be a little more selective with my finds, since I recognize that most of my previous posts were pretty weak.
    Some things for me:
    None too special, but I liked them. There were tons more but I don't know vintage matchbox so I didn't bother to pick through too much.

    Not sure this is a thing, doesn't seem that special. But it was exactly $0, so why not?
    Marked as a small, but it's absolutely enormous on me in the shoulders and sleeves, so I'd guess a Large/XL.

    I dream of instrument scores like that. Around here, it's:

    Dented, student model trombone? $60.
    Terrible, old clarinet that would need an overhaul, at least, before it played? $150.
    Violin case? $25.

    The super duper thrift looper did not play out as anticipated as far as schedule and general success. I'll have to re-logisticize it before the next run. Got held up for a few hours on both days for visits and traffic so I only hit about half the stores I had planned.
