    This new town I'm in usually has nothing of any value, but I found this neat tweed blazer:

    Happily, it fits like a glove, and I'm also a professor, so tweed indeed.

    I was also looking at the S5 Active, but for the $$ it made more sense to go with the standard. I was amazed that this phone at tmo retails for like 5-700$ new right now, and I picked it up in the parking lot behind the store for 230. My last phone, I've had since 2010 when I got a prototype model from a friend that works for tmo. I will probably upgrade when the Blackberry Venice comes out though.

    Not nearly as impressive as many finds, but I only went to one shop today because I had time on the way to an appointment. For $17, I picked up 3 Ralph Lauren Button ups, a Gitman Bros dress shirt, and a Habana Coven Italy tie. All the shirts are quite large on my body. Debating whether to keep and get tailored or to sell my goods on the cheap.

    Hit a couple stores with the missus.

    This was the first album I ever owned (on cassette at the time). Yeah, it's not great, but for $1 I wasn't about to leave the #rare clear vinyl version behind. I met Alan Frew once in a Pizza Hut and he was making no attempt to hide his identity, wearing a leather jacket with GLASS TIGER on one sleeve and the big GT logo on the other. I still have the napkin he signed for me.

    Haven't heard this one but I like Hoyt.

    From the American Psycho age comes this mint, mint, minty (so effing minty this hot-ass woman even stopped me at 7-11 to comment) pair of sunglasses worn by the moms for a brief spell in the year of our lord 19_ _. But eventually, fashions and prescriptions changed, and these were lost to the ages -- lost, that is, until I was able to pull them, Krull-style, from the lava. (Lava in this case being the torn underside of a Child's Play 2 VHS).

    $60 got me some new prescription lenses with all the right fixings.

    To whoever was asking: Yes, they even have glass Ray Ban lenses at the ready just in case you need to trick out an old pair. Cheap, too.


    EDIT: Seinfeld DVDs! :fistbump:

    Those look very similar to Persol's Reflex frames. Love them.

    Love Glass Tiger. Have their first two albums on vinyl and they both get regular play. Clear vinyl is a plus! Nice find!

    I think I've passed on a zegna orphan with the same made in Italy tag. Hate hunting for pants.
