1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    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.

    1. Kilgour French and Stanbury Jacket (part of suit I bought on B&S Forum) - oddly it has a "Young Men's Fancy" san francisco tag sewn in too so I'm not sure which is fabric, which is the maker. 2. Jcrew Shirt 3. APC NS 4. Barney's Co-op Chelsea If I'm sober enough after happy hour I'll take a picture when I get home, though is hardly worthy of this page or my post count.
    [​IMG] My first suit ever was from Young Men's Fancy. It was kind of the Wilkes Bashford for children. My first purchase there must have been in the late 70s. Great place, but it hasn't been there for years.

    I love the bow tie. That shape isn't easy to find.

    Just for shits and giggles, what was the damage on the tube socks?

    $140...

    For a minute there I thought it was going to be something ridiculous.


    edit: BTW, does each purchase come along with a TB BJ?

    "Worth" is a subjective thing. Those Trickers definitely aren't 3 or 4 times better made, but if SoCal feels better wearing them, all is well, no?

    sure. You know what's even worse - Tricker's MTO/MTM price is below the Thom Browne price. SoCal could have just had them make the exact same, sans the Thom Browne logo and whatever that red white and blue thing is in the pictures, and they could have delivered that to him for less than he gave Mr. Browne.

    I could have. I could also go and have a tailor make me a suit similar to Thom Browne's look.

    In both cases I prefer to go into Bergdorf Goodman or his store in Tribeca and pay the asking retail price.

    I don't shop online, I don't shop on eBay, I don't buy things in the Sales Corner section. So, I appologize that you get offended in the way I choose to spend my money and the designers that I support.

    I know Thom Browne has a stigma on this forum; but, if I were in there buying Oxxford, Kiton or Brioni for full retail I wonder if it would be such a beef with people here. Probably still would actually, since perhaps 1% here are those that said brands actually target their merchandise towards being able to and willing to pay the asking retail price.

    But, it must be all the people buying a Brioni blazer for $799 on ebay with free shipping if BIN that keeps the luxury industry growing and not those actual clients of the stores.

    What's truly hilarious is that you think I give a shit enough about you to "hate." Envy is not something I'm too full of.. except in regards to those that have banged say Mariah Carey and Aishwarya Rai. I was mocking you not out of jealousy, but of pity.

    Have a nice day!

    And to save you the trouble: I'm poor, black, work for a living and dress like a Gap mannequin.

    Toodles.

    But I'm curious...why is "overpaying" a reason that I need to be pitied?

    If people want to buy shit on eBay and hunt for deals let them.

    If people want to overpay at retail on off the rack clothes let them.

    It's not like you see people running around here saying "Oh look at you, you street rat! You bought a $450 Turnbull & Asser shirt for $45! Dont' you know that brand is only for rich people??"

    Then again, all the denim heads are feeding each other their own bullshit in thinking that any pair of jeans is actually worth more than $50 at retail with all their "stealth wealth" stuff.
