    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Up for trade.

    Hanover L.B.Sheppard tan, pebble grain longwings, size 7 D. Top of the line Hanovers, comparable to Florsheim Imperials. Uppers are excellent, no issues, and the double soles may not wearout in your lifetime. The heels are 80% or better.

    I'm in urgent need of a green self-tie bow for next weekend. Its for a "Green Tie" formal affair for St. Patrick's Day. If anyone has something they think might work, please post a picture and we'll see if we can work something out.
    I think this is about as good as you'll get:

    Pretty much perfect if you ask me.

    Anyone interested in a tie trade? Looking for something pretty specific (but also ubiquitous): BB#1 Repp stripe ties in Burgundy-Navy and Gold-Navy (http://www.brooksbrothers.com/IWCatP...=Burgundy-navy). Have a ton of ties by BB Makers and Talbott, a Zegna, a Brioni, some wool ties, etc. May take pictures of the collection later.

    No pictures right now, but I have a few things available for trade/sale. A pair of new (bags no box) Chili AE monkstraps in 9.5, a grey herringbone Borelli sportcoat 42S (Not sure if I want to trade or keep, since it's just a tad short on me), and a blue RLPL shirt 16.5/35.

    My measurements are 40R in jackets, 16/34 in shirts, 34W and 30/32L in pants, and roughly an 11.5 in shoes. I'm looking for shirts (Brooks Bros. button downs, Zegna, Brioni, RLPL, RLBL, or similar), pants (Incotex or similar), shoes (brown/cherry captoes and wingtips), and most items made by Fred Perry at the moment.

    Lumpkin,

    What's with you and the longwings? Is it a Pittsburgh thing? It seems like you come across them constantly up there.

    I remember when you first came around and found some new Lobbs at a thrift. I didn't even believe it, but you proved me wrong.

    About time for you to find some more Lobbs[​IMG]

    I LOVE THIS.
    Any refinements needed?

    My thoughts exactly!! Enough of these damned longwings!!

    Actually, I can remember posting these exact words in the not too distant past..."seems like you can't swing a dead cat in Pittsburgh without hitting a pair of longwings,"

    I've yet to find a decent shoe of any type, of any size, in any thrift store, around here.

    Thrifting shoes is hard.
    I have only found 5 pairs worth a damned
    1 Pair of beautiful suede churchs wingtips
    2 pair of AE in almost new shape
    1 Pair of Bexleys
    1 pair of RM Williams (I totally never thought I would ever run into a pair of these)
    I have been at it for 4 years with good regularity.

    I'll be curious to see how the Burberry suit measures out.

    Alright, here's some more goodies. If you are interested in anything, let me know and I will take more pics. Allen Edmonds Brookwood in 12D. This is the same pair I just got on trade from creampiggy. I thought since sizing on loafers is always a little hit and miss, I may get lucky and squeeze my fat feet in to these, but alas they do not fit. [​IMG] Brooks Brothers Brooksease Suit 41R/35L [​IMG] Hickey Freeman Bespoke for Bullock & Jones Jacket 38R, fully canvased, this is an orphan. In real life, the red overcheck is VERY subtle [​IMG] Lauren by Ralph Lauren Jacket 46R [​IMG] Hickey Freeman Collection for The Foursome Jacket 42L, fully canvased [​IMG] H. Freeman & Son for Nordstrom's Jacket 22 shoulder, 25 arm, 16 chest, 32 length, fully canvased [​IMG] Brooks Brothers Brooksaire Jacket 40R [​IMG] Brooks Brothers Jacket 41R [​IMG] To help judge colors, all of the clothing was photographed over black fabric and white paper. My sizes are listed in the spreadsheet. Clearly I am a big guy and hard to fit, so I am open to creative trades.

    How wide is the donegal tie? I'm interested, though so far I don't have anything photographed to exchange.
