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 know that their denim is made in Japan. Search how to check authenticity and just use judgement on the tags too, do they seem real? Post them or PM me and I can give you an idea. If they are real, and if so, that'll take you out of a thrifting slump right there.

    [​IMG] Any idea of the maker? This tag doesn't ring a bell or I'm losing my memory.

    Took lunch break. Went thrifting instead. Thrifting>eating. Couple stops.

    Beams Japan (Mainline?), Coast Italy, Eton
    [​IMG]
    Brioni x2, RLPL (there's a purple windowpane on the shirt)
    [​IMG]

    RLPL x4 (Green is Linen)
    [​IMG]

    Battistoni Grey 70% Cash 30% wool sweater
    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Nearly brand new Aquascutum Rain Jacket made in England
    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Never seen this line before, but it's surprisingly well made and the cashmere was way too good to pass for the price
    [​IMG] [​IMG]
    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Sick Zegna Blazer (Wool, Silk, Linen blend)
    [​IMG] [​IMG]
    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Never worn. Single Breasted Peak Lapels grey pinstriped BB Regent Suit made in Italy by Lardini
    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Helmut Lang Grey suit, Made In Italy

    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Paul Smith London Byard wool Suit
    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Another.
    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Usually I'd pass, but this is brand new, no synthentic, and that pattern is ridiculous
    [​IMG] [​IMG]
    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Ermenegildo Zegna 15milmil15 Super 170s suit in charcoal with bold purple pinstripe
    [​IMG] [​IMG]
    [​IMG] [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Lastly, when linda leaves things like this without keywords like Cashmere in the title, and in my size, I'm obliged to take them. Just won about 20 minutes ago. Brioni Pure Cashmere Blue Glen Plaid. I wouldn't say true e-thrift, but about a third or less of what it's worth.

    [​IMG]

    That is all.

    Nikes aren't worth anything, but I'm sure those are in the back of your mind now [​IMG]

    Do they have a name? I don't think I'll be wearing them myself.
