    Some of them might be 37... I just measured one and assumed they were all the same but I'll double check. They are really amazing shirts I was blown away somebody would donate them in that good of condition. Left another six or seven that had signs of wear. I think the boots are 10d, so are those zegna loafers I think to whoever asked

    Corneliani ID coat back from the cleaners. Yes, I normally would have buttoned the 2nd down and tucked the pocket flaps in, but I was losing light so [​IMG].

    removable sweater insert, includes side zips and one at the top in back.

    Lining is gorgeous cotton, and the upper third has a perforated material.

    Pockets galore... All I found pre-cleaning was a toothpick broken in half, and a gum wrapper.

    Wonder who 5555 is.

    Any of this intelligible?

    Jacket is most certainly black, though some colors show it a bit warm due to using the house for some bounce fill. Seems like a decent piece right?

    Hey guys, I ran into this made in France YSL SC. Wasn't sure about it, so I passed it. Any thoughts on it?

    My clothes thrifting has been so-so.

    Mostly stuff for myself (BoO shirt, Heutchy shoes), along with some Nudies nwt, and a Brioni Jacket.

    I did have a pretty great audio find. Got some recording equipment a friend needed. If anyone knows audio, you'll know this is all solid but not great amateur equipment:
    Seinhesser HD280-Pro Headphones
    Tascam US-122 Recording Interface
    Shure Beta 58a Mic

    Mic Stand, Cables, and Pop Filter.

    This was all $40, so I'm pretty stoked. I would have paid $40 just for the headphones.

    I left behind one of my weirdest finds today..... NWB Dior Homme Trainers... In a true thrift store...


    for... $190

    [​IMG]

    Along with them were some NWB Yohji, Billy Reid, and New Balances


    The thrifting has been bad... but on the larger deals side, I'm working on 3 hauls.

    Here's a teaser list from the first:

    whoops, decided to delete this

    ... and Mainy, sweet finds. That vest... I don't know how I feel about it personally, but on a more general level it's quite awesome.

    Those Sennheisers are great from what I recall, I think that's the model a sound guy on set had that I tested out, and that Shure is the workhorse of the industry, the Bill's pants of mic world - solid, reliable, not too exotic, and sooo useable.

    Yep, the Sennheisers are a standard, and I've used them myself for 8 years (recently upgraded to some Fischers), and same goes for the mic. The Tascam is just a simple usb recording interface, but it has pretty good sound and features. All in all, it's 500-600 in equipment retail, and something I would have been happy to pay $250 for.
