    Hey Darkmatter, please read the private message I just sent you. It's not clothing related.

    Some great stuff is being posted here lately. eazye and TyphoidJones are turning up cool stuff reliably, as is DM7 (goes without saying) and several others. It's been pretty dry for me at the thrifts, though I've had a few good scores, including my best ever clothing find in my size.

    Incredible leather suitcase, unknown maker (found alongside a made-in-Italy clothing valet, which I'm also really enjoying):

    Minty Southwick double-breasted seersucker jacket, 6-on-2, fits great and is the perfect shade:

    And my favorite, a recent (or, not ancient) Oxxford silk SC, navy with horn buttons and a wine and yellow windowpane, $3 on my birthday:

    Ok, wife is off the table, but I think this guy is more than a fair trade:

    Are you certain it's a Conn, not a Buescher? Also, while it's a good find if it's in working order and you play, stencils really aren't worth much.


    Also, atljon - if you don't play that mkvi anymore, I'm in georgia at the moment and would love to take it off your hands. :)

    Definitly Conn, has the mercedes guard and marked with an "L" rather than "Low Pitch", like Buescher would have.

    Mark VI alto, lacquer is at 97%, detailing is sweet as hell. Serial 118,176. I think I bought it for 3,500 12 years ago. I just dusted it off, and it plays just like it did when I was playing it to death in college -- I, however, got quickly discouraged at how much I suck and quickly put it away. Music journalism is an all-consuming beast, it seems. But it's time to get back on the horse. Wes, you've inspired me!!!! (After I meet these pressing deadlines, of course.)


    Since it's not worth anything -- let's say $100 shipped plus those lug-soled Aldens I picked up a while back that should make you some money on ebay.....

    Reposting the pics. I took them at a friend's apartment, and thought that they had some of his personal information in them. Turns out, it's fine.

    DM7, are we talking actual Loro Piana SC, or loro piana fabric?

    If so, I would certainly include a picture!

    Made by Loro Piana, not just the fabric [​IMG]

    Today's haul is at a friend's apartment though, so these are all of the pics that I have.
