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.

    Thought about that but decided to leave the shoe and my name/number in case they found it.

    I have some AE shell loafers so i'll live, but Alden is so rare out here. It still hurts over 24 hours later.

    Did find an Isaia sport coat at the next spot for $4. Thrift gods threw me that one to help me recover.

    Thrift fit from last night:

    [​IMG]


    Cobalt Blue Silk Smoking Jacket - $8
    White Spread Collar Canali 1934 Shirt - $35 from eBay (thrift funded)
    Zegna Charcoal Flannel Wool FF Slacks - $8
    Allen Edmonds Black Manistee Belt - $4
    Paul Stuart Black Crunchy Knit Silk Tie - $3
    Random White Cotton PS - $2

    *Not Shown* - Allen Edmonds Concord Black Wingtip Brogues - $15


    Not a bad fit. The jacket sleeves are kinda short, so I had to double-back the shirt cuffs to compensate.

    Went out for breakfast with my wife and she suggested we stop by Goodwill. It hadn't even crossed my mind that they would be open today

    Thought this was a reprint, but it's an original:
    EDIT: I meant to say the opposite - thought this was an original, but it's a reprint. Either way....they reprinted the entire paper including the old ads, classifieds etc, 50 years later. Kinda cool, but worthless.

    Found this at the local GW and thought......why not? If nothing else some Baller (Spoo) might need to keep up appearances while tooling around in his hooptie!!

    Kind of interesting that you don't want to rent bowling shoes, so you bought used bowling shoes. [​IMG]

    Polo shawl collar is the tits.


    Anything interesting in a 40-41R?

    Nope, that's not the RL you're looking for. I would avoid it even if it was your size.
