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.

    In the last few months I've picked up a Vacca and an Attolini, each for $10, and just the other day a Kilgour, French, Stanbury SBPL tuxedo still with the tags on it. That's pretty crazy stuff for my area.

    Jacket looks awesome. Wish I came across more recent Hickey Freeman stuff. All I see are dusty old Boardroom suits with monster shoulders. Did grab a recent HF safari jacket a few weeks ago though.

    Imagine that I wasn't too tired and lazy to find and post a video gif of the Black Eyed Peas "Feel So Close To You Right Now".

    Florsheim Imperial 93605 cordovan shoes, someone? Size 13A. I'm pretty sure these are the real deal, although I can't see any nails in the heel. they need a little love - worn at the top of the ankle (need careful re-sewing at the line of stitching) and are generally dusty and sad, but not dry or cracked.

    @My Main Man , No way these sold listings are legit. I am not buying it at all.

    Anyone who doubts the veracity of this statistic has never flushed a toilet on a cruise ship.

    I see this every so often. Last week I was searching sold listings and noticed the same seller had sold a certain brand sport coat, multiple times, for something like 8x the average price. I don't remember the brand but it wasn't anything super rare. The seller's photographs weren't very good nor was the listing template - and the sport coats looked like orphans. I have to assume they were using another account and purchasing their own stuff, I suppose in an effort to drive up the sold prices. There are always going to be outliers that are real transactions, but I think we can all recognize when it's manufactured.

    I think it depends on the model. The City fit is great on me and I'm fairly athletic. (Although thinking about it, I only have it in ZZegna so I'm not sure if it is also available in Zegna mainline)

    Also I agree with that Brioni being sexy <3
