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.

    the cleaners i use now is an hour and a half away from my house. But theyre by far the best. Theyre not too far from my parents house and my in laws, so i just have to pre-plan. But when i drop off my clothes, they itemize the receipt with the brands of each piece and a description.

    If only I didn't have that pesky mortgage.....
    I've actually had mine do repairs for free. I picked up a recent Brooks Brothers blazer that, weirdly enough, had almost every button loose on it. Coincidentally, I was dropping off some clothing to be cleaned that same day. I accidentally gave them that jacket as well, and I assumed they'd loose all the buttons in the process. To my surprise when I got the jacket back they had removed every button, along with stitching, and re-sewn them on, free of charge.

    Dear Sirs, I haven't checked in for the last couple of weeks because of kids and dogs and just loving sleep too much but will post a long photo brag as soon as i can.
    Is anyone familiar with this particular aquascutum label? i haven't seen it before and need to know if it's just a new or old style label or for a certain line/range?
    it's on a very nice modernish tux dinner jacket.

    Anyone here have good luck with iron on patches for moth holes, or some other method less costly than reweaving?

    Normally i wouldn't be interested, but I picked up a mainline yohji yamamoto Shacket - pants combo in a really dark navy, with probably 6 tiny moth holes in different areas. I'd like to keep it for personal use, and considering the baggy nature of the pieces, it seems like tiny patches behind the fabric would work just fine for casual use.

    Honestly, being YY I'd just wear as is, and call it "distressing," but I wouldnt get to stressed about it.

    I just got back from lunch-time thrift. Saw two of these striped Etro Milano's as well (not these ones obviously), and I left them, as I'm trying to figure out these shirts still. They don't seem to go for much on that other site, unless, it's some unique paisley one? I've never found one that is my size, so haven't had to consider grabbing one for personal use. Is Etro Milano not worth grabbing then, normally? (edit: not including the Etro Milano jacket I found a little while ago - I knew to grab that beaut).

    At 1.50 each though, it seems like there is something left for you to make it worthwhile.

    What I didn't leave behind, was the mostly blue, popping, Robert Graham! I was excited, as I haven't been finding any of them lately, for awhile. For sure, I know it will be sold this weekend.

    @jebarne had a post in the eBay thread a few weeks ago about making repairs using small patches and fusing tape. Might be helpful.

    Etro almost follows the Robert Graham mould, the louder and crazier the pattern, the better they do.

    Pattern shirts do quite well, stripes and solids don't have much demand. Suits and blazers, are for sure a pickup; once again, the louder the better...they do sell well, $150 - $200 without a problem; more for louder stuff.

    If you find patterned pants in 34, or shirts 40/41 let me know!

    Interesting...
    I have found a dark brown one, with some garrish, green paisley? pattern design across it. The colours do not pop though (not bright)...it's kind of a dimmer, muted shirt. I may go look at it again. Can't recall the size.

    Thanks for your info!
