1. I'd like to announce that animated avatars are now available again. You'll have to reload, but they are once more possible.

    We've been doing a ton of work behind the scenes. The site load speed was already under 1/2 of what Huddler's was, on average, and we installed cloudflare, which means that the site should be even faster. A ton more will go on in the weeks and months to come, and some things will be more visibile, and some less.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    Carroll & Co shirt by Bruli, so soft, so wish it were L not M

    Thrift fit. Cashmere. I'm normally M or L, this is tagged XXL, and it has a few issues. I'm calling it good enough.

    Hit up Edmonton on Friday since I was up there to catch the Night Vale tour. It was pretty picked over, as to be expected the day before Halloween, but still got a few solid base hits and one grand slam home run.

    You consistently post stuff I like, but this might be my favourite batch. That comic strip suit and madras shirt are awesome.

    So, anyone got a good app to keep track of all the shit you buy? I recon a ordinary doc could work but if there's anything more effective I would like to know, cuz I have NO idea of how much I spend etc at the moment......

    I've been meaning to post this but always forget. If you have a few minutes, read this brilliant short story about thrifting (and other things) called 'Parson's Pleasure' by Roald Dahl.

    Furniture dealer in London discovers there's some untapped gold in old countryside farms and villages. As Buzzfeed would say, you won't believe what happens next!!

    Size 11 and available, right?

    [​IMG]

    No, look closer. You see those creases? Shell doesn't crease, it just forms waves.
    (Literally didn't even catch the wave pun until I typed it out)




    Quick lunch stop produced some flannel wool PRL and BB pants, US Made BB Tie, rando shoe trees, and an older Kuppenheimer plaid flannel lined trench coat.

    The cooler news of the day is that when I get home this evening I get to do some moving around my apartment. I am giving up my big walk in closet, but in exchange my fiancé agreed that if she got to use it that I could have the entire spare bedroom we have to use as a closet and work spot for online listings. Looking forward to having a dedicated space to use and stepping up that game a bit.


    Speaking of stepping up the game, @SpooPoker , holy hell. Awesome news man. Look forward to some of the changes. Good luck in it all.

    Could be authentic. Can't really say as the shell here is covered with tar and seaweed.

    Quite possibly 11. Will check tonight and PM if so. And big congrats to Spoo! O that feeling whence a mortal realizes they might get a chance to stroke the vest.
