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.

    It's a women's actually. I don't know anything about women's and have never found Kiton. Here's a few more pics. Sorry on my phone just stopped into a Salvation Army in Denver on my drive home.

    Apparently we've all be doing this thrifting thing wrong.

    Well, I was going to post about what a great day I had thrifting.
    Now...
    Maybe by tomorrow I will have somehow forgotten that little tidbit SPOO.
    Then again, this may scar me for months to come.

    One of my sartorialy challenged coworkers asked me to keep an eye out for a bridge coat for him after eyeing mine a few weeks back. Found one today and after he has the sleeves lengthed, it will be a perfect fit. It feels really good helping another guy up his clothing game.

    @impuntra ... Here ya go...

    Knoll Pollock Executive Chair in a Brown Coffee Bean Leather color.

    Grail achieved. True thrift for less than 10 bucks! :slayer: Definitely needs some TLC as production date was from 1983... Thinking of a restoration. Worth it to restore Frenchy? I believe Spoo also found a pair recently too?

    So I did have a really great day. Some of those year end donations are obviously starting to come out. Most of this is close in size for me so n/a for now but I am sure at least some of this will end up in a SPOO auction.
    First some nice Martin Dingman belts
    [​IMG]
    My first D&G tie
    [​IMG]
    RL cashmere
    [​IMG]
    Another RL this one a blend and already claimed by ms woofa who loves oversized knit sweaters
    [​IMG]
    Kyle and Scot cashmere for me
    [​IMG]
    Now the pants.
    Barbour, HF wool, RL blue made in Italy, and 2 incotex.
    [​IMG]
    I am unsure about this one. Could be cashmere but no tags.
    [​IMG]
    Fully lined and with a nice inside pocket
    [​IMG]
    Next 4 very nice, same donor, same each
    [​IMG]
    Bottom three are cashmere blends and are very soft. My first experience with Zins, does not seem big on EBAY but I would say these are very high level pants.
    Then three RLPL
    [​IMG]
    I particularly love the cream with side adjusters but it is a project as has a hole at the knee and a tiny one on the other
    [​IMG]
    This might be worth getting fixed though as the pants are sweet.
    Speaking of fixing, my final piece, last but certainly not least.
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    Love to see that Korshak tag. But, it has a fixed spot. I have never seen a professional repair. Really good and I don't mind as I plan on keeping it for personal. Truth is my wife found it, I might never have noticed

    Not sure if the pics are clear but it looks like a patch.
    Very long and fun day. Opened the first store at 9 and closed the last one at 8.

    It's 2016, do you know where your @PLaydice is?

    :embar:

    I miss you man, come back soon.

    The rest of you guys are making me jealous. I haven't found anything worth a shite lately, but did get some beer grailz from my BeerBro who grabbed me some stuff on a road trip. 17% Imperial IPA bomber FTW.
