    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.

    I saw, and passed on, two fake PRL items today. Does that count? #chanel

    The stamp IS silver, roughly the same as the buckle.

    OK it looked gold. The other thing is the registered trademark circle looks as though it sits to high and the circle should be level with the bottom of the l. Have you had luck finding it? I went through all of chanel 2002 and couldn't find it on any model. I only saw 5 belts that year.

    I browsed through one of the spring/summer galleries but that was about all I've had time for. I Haven't dealt with accessories all the often so I don't know all the ins and outs, but I've seen a few different placements for the circle.

    I've seen other belts with similar buckle styles though (I mean the way in which the buckle actually works, not necessarily that specific buckle).

    Anyone else addicted to the WSOP app? I got high selling a $40 suit for $1100 once, but nothing beats bankrupting people on that app, even though it's play money.

    Haha, no, but it does remind me of blowing through my living money in college on PokerStars and FullTilt. I could have eaten less velveeta if those never existed.

    Tag looks like the one in my suit, so it's not anything crazy, crazy. Still that's an expensive jacket.

    Love the fabric on this HF. I've never really felt any wool like it, especially not in an overcoat.

    Imagine my dismay, when I discovered this is the lining to a probably pretty awesome coat. At least it has the button links so its still wearable as it's intended separate function.

    I thought this was NWOT with the extra buttons attached to the collar label when I bought it, but noticed some bleach-like staining on the back while photographing [​IMG]

    I believe you're right and it's just their normal made in Italy stuff. Thanks for the tip.

    wait whut? that's a lining? do you have a link that shows how that works? i've been sitting on something similar (without the link buttons) and i'd love to finally resolve this.

    Yeah, a wool lining, for inside a trench coat. It would button all the way around the interior of the coat shell using buttons fixed to the inside of the shell. Then there are also tiny hidden button holes around where the collar is attached to button it in there too. Then the collar flap would sit out side on top of the trench collar. But on this one the links were included so the lining could be worn separately as well.

    sorry to beat this to death but I'm just a little surprised to see sleeves on a trench liner.

    but are those buttons original ferragamo or did somebody aftermarket those? and where can i get a set - i've looked and i've been frankly stumped
