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.

    Also, isaia has a new content tag. Sorry I didn't take a pic of it, but I assume we'll be seeing it soon enough. Much more plain, smaller, less distinctive, like the generic Italy BB tags or so.

    [​IMG]
    Aphex twin circa 95, the who live at leeds, and a collection of speeches from JFK, all in excellent shape (n/a)

    "Finissimo" pura seta summer shirt
    [​IMG]
    can't nail down the maker, but finissimo is a semi-common fabric designation for Brioni tailoring, and the "made in italy" font looks a lot like Brioni, so... Brioni? either way, crepe weight silk and black mop buttons. Going to get a lot of wear this summer.

    Some local places have already cut way back on the sweater and jacket sections, which is a shame. still some gems out there though...

    Somebody recently mentioned they loved the sight of a completely unadorned liner in a jacket. Now I get it.
    [​IMG]
    pop pop! my first time seeing the row in the wild, and not in a shy way: some dude up and donated a wardrobe of tommy nutter bespoke.

    Also stopped in my local vinyl shop for RSD; they only had two of the titles on my want list: Clint Mansell / Kronos Quartet "Requiem for a Dream" 2xLP soundtrack, and the Coltrane "Roulette" 10".

    ...but in digging the bins I also found these 1970's Stash label LP's, both still sealed:
