    These 5 mil polypropylene clear sleeves work great. They do not have flaps or adhesive seals so they are open top, but they easily fit all of my AS 2X45 gatefolds where as the MoFi do look nice I find them to be extremely tight and difficult to put on at times.
    LP outer sleeves that are strong and durable and super clear.

    I just received an order from Sleeve City and another a few weeks ago. If you email them, they are very good about telling you when things are expected to be back in stock.

    BTW, their oversized 5 ml sleeves are perfect for Tone Poets.

    The Sleeve City Oversized 5 Mil are one of the best for gatefold IMO. They are in stock. I just ordered 200 of those for higher quality covers and 100 PREMIUM QUALITY 3 Mil. thickness polyethylene (Invest in Vinyl Brand) for regular covers.

    I prefer the SS 5 Mil for nicer covers but recently figured I'd use the cheaper polyethylene for thin cheaper covers. Any other reason besides them being a bit more cloudy to being adverse to them?

    Oh, I have tons of them, too. My local shop puts all its records in cheap PE sleeves. I use the Sleeve City 5 mil sleeves for gatefolds and other audiophile records I buy online.

    Same here. I was even using the regular SS 5 Mil on cheaper covers. Since they were out I figured I'd try the 3 Mil from Amazon on those covers and just restock the oversized 5 Mil for Gatefolds and other nicer covers.

    I also looked at Vinyl Solutions but decided to stick with Sleeve City for now.

    I recently made the switch to Vinyl Solutions. Their dual cover approach for easy access to the inner gatefolds was too much to pass up. I also like that the records slide into the side vs. the top so the open portion faces to the back of the storage cabinet (i.e. less dust maybe).

    Ah, we’re back on ‘sleeves’ again.
    Must admit, the jazz was getting a bit tired :whistle:

    Well, it's sleeves for jazz records. So not that bad of a tangent.

    Their products are the only thing I use, both for inner and outer sleeves.

    New Tone Poets week has arrived, hooray! My local store has them confirmed as in stock and will steal my wife's car and pick them up later this week. I'm talking about two killer Jazz records here. My Conception and Expansions. No inner sleeve chatter on my mind this morning...Ha! Just some new Tone Poet releases to anticipate as I spin many of the previous titles over the next few days.

    It's not that I'm excited or anything like that, just pumped up beyond belief!

    These two still haven't shown up at a decent price on this side of the world so I'm still waiting. I'm also still not sure about Expansions. I streamed it and didn't love it so I'm not sure if I'm getting it or waiting for a huge discount to get it. My Conception is definitely taking a place on my shelf though.

    Same here, also not crazy about expansions. The Sonny clark sounds great though

    I think both My Conception and Expansions are excellent musically, though in very different ways. But I think the latter might have a higher potential as a TP; the soundstage is a bit more uneven and unpredictable, lots of different sounds and dynamics in the arrangements to play with, and you'd bet KG will take good advantage of that. Can't wait to hear that flow through my speakers in a couple of weeks!

    The Sonny, I can imagine exactly what it'll sounds like, and it'll be great, but it might not get as high a "TP lift" as I think Expansions will. Just my thoughts, of course, we'll see the SQ reviews start to come in soon :)

    I initially read "Can't wait to hear that wow through my speakers...". Jesus... :laugh:

    Just got an email from amazon saying the Sonny Clark is delayed to the 27th August. Anyone else get the same?
