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.

    Great idea for a thread! Coincidently, I can contribute with a very recent purchase. Here's what I bought last night:

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...m=320037459764

    I originally was only going to bid the minimum. I decided last night that it was enough of a deal that it deserved another bid. I pulled myself away from the Mets game (like I'm doing now) and placed the winning bid with 2 seconds left on the auction. I think I actually beat a sniper because the bid before mine was placed only four seconds earlier and six seconds before the end of the auction. Anyway, this is my first suit purchase on ebay (not counting a tuxedo that's still hanging unaltered in my closet). What do you guys think of this?

    drizz: that tweed looks like it will be a good one. In my experience, the clothes look better in hand.

    homme: great tie!

    gdl23: That is one great-looking SC! Size? Material? 2B? 3B? (As for the other clothes, see below)

    sygyzy: Yes, there is, but it's in streetwear and denim. Technically, gdl should have posted the others there.

    I stole this Altea. Not much to lose, it was $1.04.

    This vintage Pendleton wool 3/4 coat was only $8. Raglan sleeves.

    Sorry, I didn't get that this thread was exclusive of casual wear. I removed the pics.

    As for the coat, it is a 54L, 3B, double-vented and the fabric is a blend: 40% silk, 35% linen and 25% Super 100's wool.

    All pics are by A Harris whom I bought the coat from

    Aportnoy, I didn't realize you wear clothes with your shoes.[​IMG]

    That is probably the nicest vest I have ever seen - vest porn?

    Those look stunning, did you get them online? I always find my searches clogged by fake mont blanc cufflinks when I search on ebay.
