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.

    Cheers,

    "Thrifted" this for free when my office moved a while back. I don't know why I didn't start using it until now because my shipping game has seriously been stepped up.

    Stupid Americans. The plural of mouse is mousse - you just add an extra "S" like most other words.

    Couple of things. Alden shells are two in 2 weeks. Quite happy about that.

    @Fueco, is that Patagonia real? I've never found one before. Feels right, just older I think but you are the expert. (And if you want it let me know, totes available).
    Shout out to @Van Veen for trading for that ill Aquascutum coat at the end… its so awesome.

    Should I or shouldn't I buy...

    $10, teak floating desk made in Denmark

    except...

    without the cool sleigh legs, and pretty trashed. Would have to get rid of the destroyed drawers and refinish the whole thing.

    Edit: bought it and they're holding it for me to pickup Monday, but not sure if it's worth the trouble to go back and get it.

    I think I'm with you. Feels like it'll be a big headache and not worth it.

    So I haven't been able to thrift much in the last year due mostly to life and my 9 month old daughter. As such not much posting in this thread. I've followed this thread regularly though and you guys kill it. Thank you for the hours of entertainment. Thank you for hustling and making me jealous and stoked at the same time. Great bunch of guys here.

    I haven't been to a legit thrift store in at least a month. North San Diego County isn't the greatest area for tailored clothing either. In my 3 years thrifting there has always been a white whale that's eluded capture for me. The height of Italian RTW... Kiton. I've pulled isaia, brioni, cuci, etc etc. But never kiton. Today that changed

    To make it even better... My size (the elusive 38R drop 7). One glen plaid suit and one navy blazer. N/A

    In the pocket. Dat retail doe

    Hey. Not sure if the best place to post this, but this seems more active than other threads where I think I could get some help.

    Anyone familiar with Alfred Dunhill? Do/did they do diffusion? Basically, I found this jacket in a 48R US at an SFA05 for an obscenely cheap price, and it's available if anyone wants. Mismatched suit jacket so I can try to find pants.

    @330CK trade you for the glass items I found today.

    Hit two estate sales but got nothing...one house was filled with some real spendy stuff but the clothes were absolute shite - Chaps, Merona and Chico's. Might go back tomorrow if they have 75% off in the afternoon, at which point the prices on other stuff might be justified. Other house was basically empty save for bare mattresses and grubby toys - why bother?

    One thrift stop - not much:

    These are vintage glass urinals / bed pans. Not worth much - maybe $15 to $30 each - but interesting display pieces. Maybe gifts for my sister, who is a nurse.

    Not sure what to make of these 4 Ole Miss hoodies / jackets:

    NWT from Champion:

    ...but they all have these dated tags saying "Fall 2016"... Maybe pre-production examples / prototypes?
