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.

    Cheers,

    I've been meaning to do this for a long time. I often get great stuff, and I want to brag and gloat to someone who will care, understand and/or appreciate it. But it's not worth starting a thread for each new item. I also want to hear about what other people got. It will be a journal of sorts.

    Plus, keeping it all in one thread will help those who find it distasteful to avoid it. [​IMG]

    I warn you, the following may be perceived as gauche, a faux pas, or other French words, because I am likely to include prices. That's part of the bragging.

    I've never found Ervell, and would wear it if I did. Nice find!

    Not really a SW&D guy, but I did find a pair of APC khakis:

    [​IMG]


    Already traded these to Vexco. Second trade with him, he's a good guy and a great trading partner.


    And this is from a few months ago, but it's become my favorite weekend shirt:

    APC Blue Gingham Flannel:

    Very interested to see what this thread turns up to increase by SW&D knowledge.

    I found a black gingham APC flannel just like that one a few months ago. Love it but the arms are a little short...

    FFFFFFFFFF...if I thrifted a case of Pliny the Elder, I would just quit. Pliny the Younger is an altogether greater grail of the two, but with a four bottle per person limit at the liquor store, a case would be the fucking Megamillions lotto of thrift finds.

    People need to post fit pics of what they bought. If it fits bad I don't care who makes it or what color it is.

    :laugh: That's not really the point. This is an offshoot of MC's Thrift/Discount bragging thread, where the focus is on the finds, and the atmosphere is altogether more supportive.

    Finding great SW&D stuff is such a feat in itself, asking that everything fit to SW&D standards would be near impossible.

    glad this thread got made - I'll post a few pictures of some neat gear in a bit that I can actually wear, but for now this will have to suffice:

    [​IMG]

    vintage BR with a really neat print, unfortunately a size too big for me. copped anyways, might spend the cash to have it remade if possible; it's a really heavy cloth, almost canvas

    (jawnz with labels that matter to SWD to follow in the near future)
