    I know nothing about recording equipment, but for some reason, this name stuck out from me after (I think) seeing it on this thread. Went to a local estate sale today and got these for .50c. eBay completed listings seem like $55 each at the high, but anyone have any insight?

    So, guys, what's better than finding a vintage road bike at a thrift store for $30?











    Finding one in someone's trash pile for FREE! :slayer:

    My parents just brought me a vintage Trek 510 they found on the side of the street. It's rough, but it'll be a damn fun project.

    A real shot in the dark but I was thinking Zegna Couture. 330CK's answer surely has alot more credibility though.

    While we're on the topic of nice ties, can anyone say if this is real/fake?

    I doubt as it was found amongst a pile of polyester awfulness. Two other silk ones were with it, but apparently ungooglable. Can anyone ID?

    All of the Zegna Couture ties I have seen, the lettering of the Made in Italy doesn't look like the one pictured above and it is not in that particular spot on the tag. The stitching would also be in an x.

    Went thrifting in Boston over the Saint Patricks day weekend, managed to find a bunch of pants:
    [​IMG]
    Zanella x2 Incotex x2 Oxxford for Andover Shop, Samuelsohn cords (34-36 waists) Paul Stuart Thick Wools (sized 32)

    also several ties:
    [​IMG]

    these 2 other pants will need to hit the dry cleaners before I can sell them:
    [​IMG]
    light brown zanellas 34 (pleated of course)
    [​IMG]
    green incotex twill 34

    most all of this is available, and will probably go up on Ebay unless anyone on here is interested?

    I bought a pair of brand new Rossetti monkstrap for myself. I am not totally sure if they are Fratelli Rossetti. I would really appreciate if anyone can confirm.

    The tag in the photo below shows "Rossetti Moda".

    It was not cheap, and I am not sure if they are worth picking up...:paranoia:
