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.

    Back from vacation ... hit the local places and came up with two NWT Robert Grahams, one NWT Southern Tide ls shirt, and from GW a Brioni which might work with a little Oxy and a nice Vineyard Vines polo shirt.

    Ridiculously nice Saks 40 DB overcoat, not content tags but feels like cash/wool

    No labels but ~40. Looking for a reason to justify keeping this, besides looking awesome in it.

    Hit an estate sale today - nothing worth posting, just non-clothing stuff for self.

    Went to local GW on way home, and while there I heard a thunderous crash right behind me - I ducked thinking someone had knocked over a shelf of glassware or something. Employees start yelling "Code 16! Code 16!" More employees come running. People shouting. I'm like - WTF - someone's having a heart attack or something. I turn around - nope - two women are beating the shit out of each other. I wish I'd had the presence of mind to start recording on my phone, but it didn't last very long. Never seen that before in any thrift, let alone in my dinky little town which is pretty laid back.

    Went to Waffle House for Eggs & Cheese. Still never had a waffle at Waffle House.

    $275 OBO for NIb Alden shell is a potentially killer deal

    So funny and exciting story for me Over the last week....
    Noticed a friend at church last week with a nice suit on...
    [​IMG]
    Asked him about it and it was brioni...
    [​IMG]
    He then told me he's got a billionaire friend who just gives him his old stuff that he doesn't want... That suit was one the guy didn't want to dry clean! So we get to talking about high end clothes and he's talking about all this stuff like brioni tux and loads of zeg he's been given. We talk menswear and I tell him about thrifting etc... Fun convo with someone I've known for at least a few years and had no idea he knew anything about.
    So this week he shows up and says oh hey I've got something for you in the car... Pulls out a trash bag and says I went through my closet and there's some pants I wanted to get rid of. I'm thinking best case scenario some zanella pleated or maybe brooks but still very nice of him.....instead this is what it was.
    [​IMG]
    St croix, zanella x 2, zegnotex, loro piana, zeg x 3, brioni x 2!!!
    [​IMG]
    I know that's not a big deal for a lot of you guys but since I've not even found pants in half of those brands and the fact that they all fit I'm gonna say for me this was a mini giftening!

    The end of this story would have never happened should you have done what needed to be done and slapped him for wearing a J. Garcia tie with a Brioni suit! I kid. I kid. Nice haul and even nicer that it was free!
