    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.

    A free Monte Blanc pen is better than a thrifted Monte Blanc pen right?

    I think between 3-500 depending on how long it's been there. They just sold a Valentino NWT's by Isaia 100% Vicuna blazer for "only" $1,900. For what they have their prices are really good but they keep the highest price/don't discount on ebay.

    I don't think he was referring to the lining, I think he was referring to a MTM order for a DB blazer that is pinstriped.

    The week in review…. enjoy your weekend fellas.

    the first few coats are for my wife. We have a Christmas rule to only thrift each other our gifts and to try and keep it under $100. The ivory tweed with the sheared beaver collar is just exceptional.

    Holubar and PRL tussah silk sweater are N/A, keeping those. Most of the ties are from a $1 grab. Harmont & Blaine shirt is for my dad, sorry Dachshund dudes.

    How'd I do on the Mickey T shirt? I love the rest of that vintage shirt haul. A lot of that stuff came from a house that was from the 1700s. This was the garage :

    Wanted to pop the Ford but it was sold already. The sign on the bottom is just tremendous and weighs a TON. Its probably cast iron. The plaque is solid painted wood, super nice and toasty. The estate told me that it was the original sign for the owner of the house back in 1780 and is just as old. A-FUCKING-MAZING. N to the A.

    @SpooPoker that Bugatti tie! i've become a big fan of the older us-made prl ties, they often have a very nice 'continental' feel. there are some great deco prints and follies.

    Yo spoo, is that trusport split finger horse hide? They made horse hide ones in the 30s-40s and they can fetch quite a bit. Nice grab!

    Really? I bought it as a prop for the LuxeShop. Don't recall seeing a horsehide label but will check again. its old as fuck, certainly 30s or 40s.

    define "quite a bit" please :devil:

    They made regular cow/steer in the same time period (I would say definitely mid 30s or so). I had one about 5 years ago and I think it had a horsehide label under the strap that goes over your wrist. I think I got around $150 for it. Cool stuff either way :slayer:
