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,

    Nat, I would strongly suggest you rethink your stance on long coats. They have been hot again for quite a while, and that thing fits you like a glove. I'd be throwing money at you if it was a 38.

    So, now that I've done my research and learned what these things can fetch, I'm ecstatic about this.

    WWII-era (1943-47), pristine, UNISSUED peacoat. Corduroy pockets, throat latch... the only thing missing is the collar tag.

    Those are some awesome ties cap! That's why it's so hard not to keep checking those same stores bc you just never know when the item put out is going to be the exact right time! Ha what a fun rush/hobby/living this can be Christmas everyday!!

    Oh trust me, this coat really made me ponder that. A longer coat would also keep my legs warm, especially on days like today (-15 wind chill). I think longer coats just ring in my mind as very formal. I feel like you almost have to wear a suit or jacket with a full length overcoat and I wear a suit maybe once a year, if that. 3/4 length is more do-able for me. I agree though, this thing would look right at home in your closet. :)

    Looks legit. All the bedwin mainline are made in Japan. I think these are made by Adidas' contacts. Their shit is usually not made in Japan. I always wonder about colabs like who designed it and who made it? Like i know misterfreedom x sugar cane is designed by christophe and made by toyo so in this case it makes sense watanabe designed it and had adidas commissioned it.
    I've never seen legit made in China Paul & shark before.

    Here are a bunch of jeans/chinos that I'm clearing out of my closet. Making them available here before sending them to B&S/the 'Bay. All were thrifted, e-thrifted, or acquired via this thread. All in great condition. 32-34 waist, inseams 32+.
