    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.

    What an odd piece. I can't tell if a cardigan swallowed a puffer jacket, or vice versa. Tags would raise a question mark for me as well. EDIT - Apparently it's a sample.

    Here are the pics of the Gieves Limited London bespoke (?) black tuxedo. I am familiar with Gieves & Hawkes but am not finding any information by searching Gieves London Limited. Not something I typically find in NE Florida. I would appreciate any knowledge that anybody might be willing to share.

    This is my 1st time uploading multiple pics. I ask for patience and forgiveness in advance.

    The 1st 2 buttons on the cuff are functional. Small hole on the front at the bottom of the left cuff.

    ^^ Great piece - its vintage, probably from the 60s, and bespoke. Excellent find.

    Thanks for the input. Now to do the measuring. It's a little small for me so trying to figure out what to do with it. I guess I should say that it is available.

    Is the Howard Henry's 200 the fabric?

    p.s. I am going to work on posting what I find in my corner of the world and be a better member of this community, not just a lurker..

    Been out a little. Just kind of lurking the stores. I passed on these two.
    Pringle was nice been sitting new in closet I'm guessing for 20 years not a single hole in it. Polo was OK but I left it. I did get three suits I'll share in a bit they'll all be available for trade.

    I did thrift this after two years of saving small portions of PayPal money every month. Took me awhile to find the one. This one came out of Fort Lauderdale.

    Yes it's the q7 s-line premium plus in mugello blue. It's quick on its feet for being 6k pounds the supercharger helps. @texaswoodworker yes thats my wagon. Don't you have the a7? I have to sell my old q7 s-line now I don't need 4 cars.

    Damn. Nice score on the Alden's! And here I was happy finding yet another pair of AE, at least they are my size. Have yet to find any Alden's. Thanks for the motivation!
