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.

    Big POP for me, not tagged as such, but I'm going to call it LBM. Fits. N/A

    Looks identical to some of the Lubiam tags, but doesn't say it anywhere.

    Also of note:
    Grenson suede

    Edit - one more. They price J.Crew shirts more than this at this store, don't know how this slipped by, waxed cotton peacoat. Done right, corduroy pocket lining, nice details.

    Your right on the money with the crown zipper. Book calls it a triple crown brand zipper circa 1950. It's missing its bottom keeper. It can't be any newer than 1953 as the spool company was incorporated and we're no longer crown zips. The grippers are in the book as 1953 as well. They came in gold and silver. So it's definitely 1950 era. Sweet find.

    Haven't really had time to thrift with all the doctor visits for the twins. Did pick up scraps this week. Pretty much a total loss and starting to give up the game. Probably another two months of selling and I'm taking everything to be consigned.

    Haven't been out much at all but a few meager finds. Fauxnel scarf is on its way to playdice and Tennessee flag already claimed.

    @the2ndhandman, the Arc'teryx jacket is a Theta AR shell jacket. That's an incredible find...

    One estate sale and one thrift.

    Estate sale had an Hermes tie for $100, but I got all the ones below except the Brioni for $30. Lol.

    I don't know what animal the skull is, but it's going to be mounted on the wall for the hooks to hang things on in the LuxeShop fitting room. :slayer:

    Went down to the basement and found this. 2005 model, near mint, and a future window display at the LuxeShop. A hundred bucks so very well spent.

    Found this sticker on the Knoll chairs I grabbed yesterday. That's cool! Now I need to look through episodes.

    I got there at 845 and was number 24. I left at like 10:30 and the line was like 50 deep. You didn't miss anything except for the ties up there (and a skull and a dress form but I doubt you wanted those). They wanted 100 each Hermes tie and 150 for the scarf.

    I was fully expecting to see you and @bpk1 there. Did you hit up IT for the 2/item?

    Only had time for one stop but it was a good one. No pictures yet as I'm being lazy but two Zegna with the new label suits, a corneliani suit, and bunch of other stuff.

    Oh and then this cashmere beauty [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] all with 30% off
