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.

    Reminds me of letterpress printing. The sign of great letterpress is a kiss impression where there is no imprint into the paper at all, but anyone who gets letterpress nowadays wants a deep impression so you can TELL that you spent that skrilla on letterpress.

    Okay really dumb question... These tags on high end pocket squares are meant to be cut off, right? Some of the squares have 2 tags. A large one like this, and a smaller one that looks like it's supposed to stay on there. Plus the printed logo on the square itself.

    Yep, and scarves. also can be done with tie brand tags too if they're not the keeper.

    In fact, I used to also take the keepers off my ties, just for sprezz.

    No they are not, that tag is a lot of the reason it's worth what it is. Cut that off and you have a piece of silk that has gone from valuable to completely worthless other than personal use. If you wish to retain value on your goods, don't remove tags. Never know when tastes may change and you may want to flip it cuz you never use it.
    Don't do this.

    Handful of personal kops tonight after a local homie told me he ran into some suits and jackets possibly in my size. Unfortunately they were about 4" too large in the chest, but all the other measurements were spot on :( Left with some new Charleston Khaki black cords, a new All Saints shirt, couple things for open trades.

    Is it a Saga? If not, meh. Your results may vary.
    P.S. Keep it away from any other clothing. Those things shed horribly.

    Is there some kind of tag or marking? didn't see any other tags than the one label, but I might have missed something.

    There's a printed Isaia logo on the square itself though. Too lazy to take another photo, but exactly like this: http://www.frieschskys.com/media/ca...7136e95/1/_/1.29_isaia_pocket_squares_015.jpg

    It's something that's totally your call. Personally I don't touch the items I buy. I go the quality over quantity route, thus if I decide I can live without something or if an item is just sitting there and I haven't touched it in 10 months, I can flip it and make a decent amount of money back. If I cut size tags or content tags your fucking with the original state of the item, lessoning it's value. That's just me though, I keep money on the mind and take care of my shit. The resale on that used wouldn't crack 40, and if its also printed on the silk and you don't like the tag, then remove it it, no ones faking Isaia out there. It's your call.
