    I'm most likely going to keep them. They are just so neat looking. Probably for just around the house though on the hi-fi :D

    I don't blame you. I think I still have a pair floating around the studio somewhere. However, I prefer the newer ones with dual volume control, for my recording.

    Some folks find Marinella. Some folks find Rooster. [​IMG]

    I grabbed it because it was Indian Madras.

    Nice find! I just bought one like that off of etsy only a little more purple and less green. I love madras.

    Scored me some sweet size 38 Bill's Khakis, M1 model, flat front, fresh from the dry cleaners, bitches! I like these things, mostly because they look sleek and are so thick they can stand up on their own. :D

    Due to recent breaking news that selling thrift finds = maturity, I am making these available to someone for a low, low price.
    Slayer guy: :slayer:

    Also kopped one of those ab wheels to offset the recent Oatmeal Cream Pie hauls.

    Grendel trying to satisfy the shoe addiction by buying what's a little tight for me, and a little loose for Eazye!

    Was getting tired of seeing finds and haven't been out in a while so I just hit a GW in the city by my new office. Was heartbroken for Brian or myself when I couldn't find the pants to a super recent Brooks suit (looked like the new label a step under golden fleece ) in 36/30, then found a pair of moth ridden Brioni pants and finally a stained Isaia Napoli shirt. Didnt have much time to look, but there were also some nice ties. Slightly more than LA prices but I've got a good feeling about being in NY this summer, a lot of the things I saw were a lot smaller or normal sized compared to LA. Anyone that's like a 16/34 there were like ten Charles t. Shirts there as well I could probably proxy after I get paid.

    I'm gonna need to actually branch out into thrift stores while I'm here for a few months too. It's hard to do Alot at lunch and after work at times with firm events though. Anyone in NY though.... It's on. Hide ya Polos, hide ya brionis, cuz we taking errthang.
