    Um, link to thread? I can't find one with "audiophile" as a thread title that seems to be the main thread.

    I hate reading...more of a math/engineering guy. That said, started "BRINGING HOME THE BIRKIN" tonight a few hours ago and 1/2 way done. Anyone who is part of this thread will probably really enjoy the book. Thanks Spoo!

    I really liked it, as fruity as it was. Glad you are too. Took me one day to bang it out.

    Hey Wes, got the coat! Thanks a lot man. Now I just have to wait 7 months to wear it [​IMG]

    Note for others: Wes is a cool dude, quick to ship, and overall just awesome to deal with! We had an awesome trade go through. This thread has been incredible for me to get some great stuff without breaking my "college graduate-with-tons-of-student-loans budget". I want to thank you all for your help/knowledge/excitement to check what's the latest find on the thread! [​IMG]

    Figured I better sneak in here before the usual suspects destroy the thread for the day :laugh:

    One store yesterday... real heartbreak, too, as I found two BB 1818 Madison suit jackets in Saxxon wool that had no pants. :( Also a pair of Chip & Pepper jeans that someone had purposely cut up at the bottom with scissors... ugh.

    Did have a few pickups, though, none in my size so all available. :brick:

    Incotex for Facconable linen pants, size 38 (claimed)
    [​IMG]

    Some NWT Levi's 514 slim straight jeans that looked pretty awesome, unfortunately not my size at a 38-30. (claimed)
    [​IMG]

    NWT Paolo Mondo cashmere argyle sweater, interesting, size M.
    [​IMG]

    BB argyle wool vest, M
    [​IMG]

    Saweet Norman Hilton lightweight unlined 3/2 sack patch pocket summer blazer with MOP buttons, tagged 44 extra long, dated (I think) 1967... and check out that partial lining! O_O
    :lol: just noticed that with the flash you can sort of even see through this thing - it's SERIOUSLY lightweight, wow.

    Southwick glenplaid 2b center vent, 23.5 pit to pit, feels like some cashmere content so I picked it up.

    I found this heavy flannel chalk stripe suit with peak lapels this weekend. Unbranded, but fits like a glove. Not quite the score I've seen on this thread, but it both fits, and fills a hole in my wardrobe, so I am happy. BB tie was also thrifted.
