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,

    @fueco I'm headed up to northern Virginia this weekend, I guess I shouldn't expect to find anything?

    My in-laws are in Alexandria so, as with almost every long weekend, I'll be up there. I mostly go to ride the trails and for the food scene but there are enough thrifts and TJX/Marshalls within reasonable striking distance that I have come up on some sweet stuff.

    OG Gap x Champion - that's the original gap logo on the tag, so 70s
    btw, ribbed gussets are usually a good thing to see if you're hunting vintage sweats.

    recent (2013) decent camo nike aw77. raglan! i really like this and i think it likes me back [​IMG]

    this next one i'm getting pretty excited about.
    found some deadstock kids denimz a couple weeks back...
    [​IMG]
    those are unbranded but with price tags. no price, maybe faded off...
    all very lightweight, the one is marked 9 oz sanforized and the rest are all lighter, i'm assuming 8 but no idea whether stf or sanfo.
    bartacks, chainstitching, and single needle stitching throughout (no lapped seams, it's mostly flat fell). no rivets, dungaree-style pockets, no metal shank buttons they're all sewn on plastic (or maybe melamine) button flies.

    i gotta dig some more but deetz suggest circa 1940.

    did i mention selvedge?

    Gotta catch up on six hundred posts, but figured I'd post this first. Probably the most interesting of the last couple weeks for me.

    Pretty sure it is Margiela from 94 or 95. The first couple years of the replica line.
    Heavy wool, made in Italy.

    You never know. Bought one once a few years back that was about 75% Versace.

    Also bought one that the ties were all tied in knots and ended up being nearly 100% garbage.

    And this one just arrived yesterday, I wouldn't really call them "Gems", but definitely some nice costume jewelry.

    All in all probably 165/205 are going into inventory, and all but 4-5 were in superb condition.

    Just one find today. Killer vintage 1940's silk robe. Not in the best shape, but was super cheap and felt like I needed to rescue it.

    Really wanted these to fit, but they're a little too tight.

    Is Adrian Jules worth koping for flipability? The quality and handwork is all there but with it being MTM; is there any demand?
