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.

    Received my Thriftmas Gift on Saturday I think. I just had to open the box to make sure it was not a Cordovan by Cap'n job, but I will wait 'til my thriftmas partner is ready to open his before I explore the contents.

    Coincidentally (I verified with Hans) ended up getting the same person who got me.....so from his prior post, I know the heaviness is some sort of adult beverage (no leaking, so I guess it survived the trip).

    So, @My Main Man let me know when you are ready to open them!

    I actually really like Club Monico. Their dress shirts pretty much all have MOP buttons but I have a few specially made in Italy (most are made in China) and the cloth and fit is incredible. I have one sweater and I agree it is awesome, I wear it often. I'm not so familiar with their labels and it is difficult for me to identify recent and old however. I also didn't know they were owned by Polo. I wonder who makes the made in Italy stuff then.

    I also find the made in china stuff to be decent but not as nice as the made in Italy and I like how there's no logos plastered all over everything.

    TLDR; I agree

    I actually opened mine last night. I was sitting around the house and thought, "eh, it's basically December. I'm going to open it." The Zegna sweater jumped to the top of my sweater rotation. That thing is incredible. I'll say it again when I post pics but thank you so much. Everything in there fit and all of it is 100% my style.

    I snapped some pics last night and was going to post today. I remember there being a font/size/spoiler request the last few times. Is that still happening? Could someone refresh my memory?

    But yeah, open that box. (and enjoy all of the gallons of milk i sent)

    I found some Wings + Horns stuff in CM's clearance section at the Mall of America once. I have no idea what the connection is but the person working said that they were online orders that were returned to the store. She said they also got some W+H tank tops that had just arrived from their home office. No idea why or how they got those.

    It got me thinking I don't know the recent labels/ scale of labels of a lot of companies. Do you ever just go peruse around the mall looking at labels lol?

    Thanks man, it fit but I wasn't into it either, and so it remains at the store. Picked up a few other things. Canali dress shirt

    Not sure what this is, but it mostly fits and I like it. Similar to M65 field jacket, but likely something else

    Hefty DB Zegna cashmere, 1997, worst pics ever

    Polo USA ties, cotton left wool right, both fantastic imo

    Zegna shoes, these sorry pics don't do the color or texture justice

    @Nataku, these two are wimnenz, but I thought you'd enjoy seeing the labels.

    Hey guys, got this amazing coat on the thread last year, but I've finally realized its ridiculous for me to keep it for the 1 or 2 times a year i could wear it. It really should go to someone here that can really put it to use. Longhi suede shearling. Such a sick coat and it hurts to let it go but it needs a good home.

    For what we do, NMLC is better for this. Most mall brands aren't quality enough to wear or resell.

    Just another vintage outdoors gear maker. I'd call them mid-tier. I just love finding old down jackets... If those make it to half price day, I might kop.

    Also just scored this, which I call instant Boulder cred... A Nalgene bottle with an Upslope Brewing sticker pre-installed.

    FYI 330CK snagged this from me. It is incredibly sick - don't hesitate if you're a EU48!

    Guys... these are worn 1x Lobbs for $200. I posted the link a couple nights ago and they're still there. Again not my size/my listing but someone needs to buy these:
