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.

    I haven't memorized my tags yet, and the Tailored Consignment site doesn't look right in my phone.

    A couple of stops. Only a few things worthy of the thread.

    3 RT Seven Fold. Weird they don't have the numbers though (like 2/40).

    Hence the shock that the suit was a brioni... He's pretty consistently wearing ties like that. Yesterday he was particularly excited about his Limbaugh tie also. Oh after I saw the pants I quickly asked him what he needs ha. Ties were not on that list of things he wants. For sure have about 200 ties that would be an improvement over that one ha. But to each his own I suppose.

    This thread tho. Congrats to everyone who posted awesome finds over the weekend. Too many to quote! @SpooPoker Is there a freakin' Trafalgar factory near you or something?
    Definitely need more pics on this!!
    Thought you'd been looking slimmer, man, congrats. I found a name on the maker label in the pocket of the consignment Brioni suit I posted last week, and realized it's from a minor Louisville celebrity who's going through a nasty public divorce over his wife cheating with Charlie Strong. I'm guessing she's selling the clothes he left when he moved out, to raise money.

    She fucked a guy named Charlie strong and is now selling his Brioni too?
    That's just adding insult to injury

    ...apparently the wife gave Strong a Movado and some clothing, per the subpoena. Wonder if they were the husband's or she bought the stuff new.

    A guy that used to work for my company had a tie very similar to that. Almost identical. He wore it the day he had his picture taken for the company website. He also used to wear this vomit green dress shirt (the same color as Publix green, for those of you in the southern states).

    I've infected my wife. She's at a thrift store asking me if stuff is legit.

    My question is whether this is mainline or a diffusion?

    EDIT: Diffusion. Finally found a good resource.

    I found a karl Lagerfeld shirt and had a hell of time finding a match online. Not super common so it's cool you found it quick.
