Picked up another set of Polk bookshelf speakers for the price of a Chik fil-a meal. They are a bigger than the Sony speakers from the other day and while they have more bass, they don't sound significantly better. Yet another absolutely average speaker for the collection :confused2:

I feel that a great speaker is coming my way soon though

So I went to an estate sale with more menswear than I had ever seen. Don't think the guy ever threw anything away. Stuff looked to go back to the fifties. At least 150 pairs of pants, 100 suits and sportcoats, hundreds of ties. Unfortunately there was almost nothing to really buy. Guessing he died or stopped buying clothes around 2000. Could not pick up a single piece of actual clothing I felt I could use or resell. Still it was fun looking through it. I did however get some shoes.

Aldens look either new or worn once but the tan ones have sone weird damage around the heel. The suede have an odd darkening around the stitching, anyone know what might cause this or it it can be removed? Still, pretty happy for $10 a pair. Also range in size from 11D to 12aa. Available. The nicest pair of old Gucci i have seen. Anyone know if these are Siesto Meucci?

Completely forgot I had picked these up until they surfaced in my backlog pile today. Sometimes I can't believe I leave stuff like this lying around unsold for months. From a local animal charity shop, all three on the same day, ten bucks each. Even found a pic of Kanye wearing one, I think in the 90s.

And Pop! for me today, on this jacket. Perfect condition. Size EU 48, Dual vented, three roll two, 100% wool with a half-liner of silk, and leather trim.
What are these pockets called again? Some sort of variation on a patch pocket, I believe. Envelope?

They look like pockets on Norfolk jackets, for the hunting and shooting gear I believe. Not sure if it has a specific name.
