    Damn! Find out where their outlet is and camp out at it! Keep us updated on this potentially epic haul! Also, what size are those Oxxford jackets?

    Found the weirdest stack of records today. Totally disparate, but a lot of great stuff for $1 each.

    Kevin Ayers/John Cale/Brian Eno/Nico - June 1, 1974
    Timothy Leary & Ash Ra Tempel - Seven Up
    Stevie Wonder - Innervisions
    Kool Keith - Black Elvis (love this album, but I think it's going to go up for sale, as it goes for lots of $$)
    Phil Manzanera - Diamond Head

    plus, a couple of really great foreign albums I bought on a whim
    Del Ecuador - Algo Especial En Musica (can't find _ANYTHING_ about this but it's awesome psych/folk stuff)
    Pachacamac - Contrastes (french folk band playing South American music)

    Went out today with a writer from GQ. Found a Brooks Brothers white dinner jacket in my size for ten bucks, and a pair of almost-new New Balance classics in gray, something I'd been meaning to buy anyway. Found him a nice Lands End knit and a couple other things. No giant scores, but a good time was had by all.

    When Keith was touring this record, I ran into him at Streetlight Records in Santa Cruz. He was saying as loud as possible, "SHOW ME THAT HOT DRUM AND BASS! I NEED TO CHECK OUT THAT DRUM & BASS!"

    Whoah, you went thrifting with a GQ writer? Is there a profile imminent? I'm so jelly... This also sounds like it has the makings of good romantic comedy. Did anything wacky happen?

    Picked a few items over the past few weeks, some to keep, others to flip at some point in time. But I do have a question as to what the removable collar thingie to hold the collar together is called on the vintage DAKS jacket?

    Other stuff as well..when you thrift you gotta look for items to flip or can use. I think more than half the household items I have are thrifted! D.

    This thread has been on fire lately and with mainy's potential haul, it could become epic...

    Guess it threw me off being removable. Does this date it to when jackets had these, or is it still sometimes featured? Hard to tell how old the jacket really is.
