    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 found a thread here with the same tag/maker. It's some sort of Italian rip off. Is nwt and a hand written original sticker for $1,200 or so, most of the basting still there. I thought it might be some diffusion line or similar but it seems more like a brand rip. Still thought I'd investigate and see all the same.

    Found these with GM-H. Among other things. Appreciate the assist from Spoo on authenticity. There was another pair, but they were price enough that only these will turn a profit.

    These were NOT true thrift, but quite happy that I maintained an average of about 10% (except for the drkshdw).

    Then this bad boy. Paid up and came in at about 12%, but it was worth it. Fits perfectly and also saved a few bucks via local pickup!
    I'm seriously so stoked to rock this.

    I was first in line until you stepped up, Damm i hate you, JK, but glad it went to someone who would appreciate it.

    Check SF forums. Some have claimed its horse hide.

    I had a feeling that I was competing with someone here, haha! They apparently made three versions in limited numbers:

    YES it does and it drives me insane. I believe it's caused by some of the dynamic advertising that appears in the ad rotation, not the site itself.

    I thrifted a Avirex G-1 jacket today. The one I got is not the one Tom Cruise wore in Top Gun. Mine has 14 state patches and the lining does not have a map of Europe it names the 14 states. Google was not of any help either as I was unable to find this particular jacket. The quality seem very good and it would seem very silly to be knocking off a jacket like this I would think they would be knocking off the Tom Cruise jacket instead as it is the one that is the most popular, so I believe it is genuine. Has anyone here seen this particular Avirex G-1 or know what it is or symbolizes?

    Haven't found much lately, though I couldn't really tell you if it's because the pickings are slim or because I only go out once in two weeks, if that.

    From the past few months. Mostly NA.

    No maker or fabric tag. Triple patch pocket, unlined, unstructured, dual vents. All pockets and vents basted shut. 42-43ish.

    Love the fabric. Cotton, but just enough wool to make it not wrinkly.

    My 2 cents: I have a mkii and a mkiii, and I'm getting rid of both of them, as I got a Sony A7S. Even though I can still use them as B and C cameras for video, I'm still selling them and getting another A7S.

    Seriously, Leicas are pretty but A7S is like the only camera out there right now for my money. Shoot in almost any light at any aperture or shutter; ISO 27,000 with almost zero noise. Best all-around camera I've ever used.

    Few things from this last week. I found myself complaining to myself the other day about how I wished the people in my city would spend more money on nicer clothes for me to then thrift...

    Nordstrom's Loro Piana 100% cashmere

    Polo University Club DB dark green glen plaid. I got this for myself then decided its about 1" too narrow in the shoulders and a tiny bit too short in the sleeve. Bummer. It's really cool
    [​IMG]

    PRL lambswool 1/4 zip x2 (it's 70 degrees here but IDGAF)
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    These 3 DB Samuelsohn MTM for the same dude in 3 different colors of pinstriping. Made with Loro Piana Super 110's & 120's. I bought the jackets then went back 2 days later because I had a hunch they weren't really orphans. I was able to reunite all three to make complete suits. We'll see if they sell at all but it felt cool to reunite all three!

    Not clothing, but this is super-exciting for a collector like me. I found it in a flea market this morning. I'm getting it verified by an expert, but I think this is 19th Century. Jicky has been around since 1889, and this looks a heck of a lot like the original bottle. The juice still smells good too.

    Well I've started closing out of it so they'd better fix it.

    HEAR THAT FOK / mods? Please fix the stupid crashy ads thingy. Because I can't leave Styleforum open. And that kind of defeats the point.
