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.

    After much talk of the current state of the B&S, I thought it a good idea to start a discussion thread here where we can highlight some of the great deals that might have gone unnoticed and offer encouragement for people to kop said deals.

    Needless to say, this shouldn't be the place to self promote your own classifieds, but rather highlight some of the other offerings, and hopefully make the B&S the great place it once was.

    Anyway, I'll start the discussion -

    Ich_dien is selling an amazing Brunello Cucinelli vest here for a mere £259 plus shipping.

    I was in Cucinelli a couple of weeks ago and tried something very similar on. The retail was something like £1,500. This is a SMOKING deal!

    Nothing to add, but great idea. Similar to the one on S&D.

    Fools and their money.... Far to much for a nylon thing like that.

    If you're referring to the vest, it's 93% cotton, 7% cashmere outer and 100% cotton lining.

    I think the color of the BC doesn't do it for me... That washed out gray/beige color just makes me think drab. If it was a bolder gray, I would have jumped on it a while ago.

    I like the idea of this thread. I'll keep my eye out for wide fit shoes :lurk:

    @Notch offers the best deals on Vass MTO shoes ANYWHERE. If you know your size, you can get a Vass MTO cordovan for close to the same price that some stores charge for Vass OTR calf shoes.

    blazingazn is selling double-sided spherical cufflinks he makes by hand, using either Lapis Lazuli for $30, onyx for $23 or custom stones at cost. I had bought mine from a Savile Row company for much more, and without silver hardware unlike the offering here. Will be buying soon.

    I'm surprised his products didn't gain much traction thereafter, but member glenjay began selling all-natural, non-toxic shoe polish and shoe care products some time ago. For $19.95 apiece that's a great deal for a product that doesn't have much competition in the market:

    There are accompanying photos on his site and in the thread.
