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.

    No marks on bottom. Handshake on the front makes me think it's from the merger. Ah well, it was $1. Very least it will hold some shit! Looks great as well.

    First, I apologize for the lousy picks. I am trying to get some stuff done before leaving on a trip Thursday for a car auction and mini Thriftcation in Raleigh, North Carolina.

    A few finds:

    Found this a little while ago, but hadn't taken pics yet.

    Vintage Cooper Flight Jacket -- not military issue. Its a reproduction. But, it is pretty cool anyway.

    Canali Staple Gray Suit (super 120s) 40R

    AND for those folks that find that nice suits are priced WAY too high in thrift stores, I thought I would share the thrift price on this.

    Next is an interesting Tuxedo. I usually avoid Tuxedos unless its a Top Tier name. But, this had a Shawl Collar and it looks spectacular! Custom made in Hong Kong (?) even came with the hanger!

    Next is a Zanella SC -- with Peak Lapels, Ticket Pocket, and a WILD design.

    A NC Warmup Suit with the pants! I can't figure out if this awful or good. I mean the style is awful, but is either worth nothing or good money.

    I just paid myself $500 to be unbanned. Wanted a new pair of Visvim sneakers anyway.

    This I found, wore, and put in my closet today. Made even more excellent by being only $15 at a place where Stafford SCs are $25.

    So, strictly adhering to my one in one out policy for personal stuff, this had to come out (avail):

    Is this the old Burberry I'm looking for? Removal wool lining and all belts, buttons and loop holes are there. Has some of what looks to be tea stains on the one lapel [​IMG]. This thing buttons both ways so I could button it to hide the stains but was wondering if there is a proper way to button it lol fits actually surprisingly well

    Any advice for removing the stains or will I do more damage then good?

    Love the old Burberry coats,
    The new ones suck so bad, I checked them out at the Burberry store once and they were terrible

    Right, I'm just having a hard time imagining that guy in camo pants loving the early 70s tigerstripe but reacting in disgust to the slightly-different-shade-of-green 80s camo.

    The streetwear connoisseurs, sure, and the military collector guys, but seems like the thrift finds above should have a market with the average vintage-interested guy.

    You would probably refer to that nowadays as a "trinket box" but if you're going to list it throw the words "Limoges style" in the listing. It's based on the highly decorative porcelain boxes that were made in Limoges, France that men would use to keep their snuff tobacco with them through the day in the 19th Century. While they haven't been widely used for snuff in nearly a century, they are still produced in Limoges and elsewhere in France as decorative items. You'll often find them hand-painted and shaped as fruits, vegetables, animals or with a simple floral decoration. Certain manufacturers are highly sought after. Without any markings to ID to the maker, however, yours probably only has value to someone with a connection to the oil industry.

    Hope this helps!

    Noble-- just an FYI, if you're in Raleigh you're only about an hour and 15 minutes from the Brooks Brothers Clearance Center in Garland, NC. Pleasant drive through the country, too. IMHO, it is worth the drive. You can find some prior posts on here about it if you're unfamiliar.
