    That is Isaia, the only way to tell what level it was made at would be to see if it is full or half canvassed. Also, if the button holes are hand made or not.

    Best part is LPs were 10 cents a piece! :bounce2:

    What'd your friend score, if you don't mind me asking? Earlier this year a friend of mine scored The Litter's three studio albums (Distortions, $100 Fine and and Emerge) from my local GW for .49 each. First two were still in the shrink. I was green with envy for months over that haul.

    I spun Balaklava last night and highly recommend it, even if you spring for a re-issue. Great folk-psych with some cool sound clips dubbed into some of the tunes. Haven't heard One Nation Underground yet. Both these albums were on my want list for a long time.

    Besides these, it's been dry for me too. Seems like the dealers are out in force. A lot of garage sales that advertised records told me they had a guy come the night before and scoop them all up.




    Wow! Nice haul - those are some gorgeous suits!

    Wow - he scored big on the Link Wray and the Raymen. That's been on my want list for a long time. I have that Nektar album and The Band's Music From the Big Pink and both are great as well.

    Emporio Armani is the low end, right?

    Also, anyone ever heard of "the shirt store"? Some decent shirts by them here

    I love hearing about LP finds on here. It gives me hope that there is something other than Herb Alpert and Doctor Zhivago soundtracks out there. My area is incredibly dry when it comes to music.

    Agreed with Nataku on the Link Wray: that's a great, jealousy-inducing find. Anyone who hasn't heard Rumble before needs to check it out. And yes, Old Ways is in fact a terrible, terrible album.

    Aquascutum, Pure Cashmere, Made in England.

    And as an aside, I shudder thinking about wearing second-hand loafers and couldn't even bring myself to wear second-hand oxfords or the like.

    I don't know? I'm close to Milwaukee and have seen hundreds of pairs, this was the first I'd ever seen made in Italy. Also found these a while back. Ever seen made in Italy Florsheim's? Barletta Series, size 9.5 D, available.

    I have a pair identical to Eazy's and they are uber cool. A favorite summer shoe for casual occasions. Mrs. Pnutpug also thinks they're very cool. so that's a plus.
