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,

    Not a huge brag, but I got $35 for well(ish) worn Dunhill pajamas. You can definitely get more than that for the T&A ones, @timhortons.

    Thickest wool shirt/shacket I've ever seen. Totally awesome. Totally Mint. Totally NA. Vintage PRL made in USA. English wool. New Zealand suede.

    All that Canali talk earlier brought me some good luck. For the first time in 5 years, I found a tailored piece in my size. Recent 2 button micro hounds-tooth check SC w/ dual vents. :slayer: :slayer:

    This afternoon was a bit of a letdown after finding Brionis and Kitons earlier in the week. :)

    Four J Crew Ludlow suits

    But these made the trip outside worthwhile: recent dark grey LV loafers. Cost me $65 -- but I wasn't going to leave them behind.

    Sorry, all N/A.

    For laces, I usually buy from Benjos. Great selection of traditional and non-traditional colors, plus waxed, round, flat, etc.

    I second the dark laces over the light ones.

    I've been playing a little catch-up but I'm losing hope. Made it to page 2000 of 2777 today. For those that encourage others to read both threads in their entirety, I can understand the newbie hesitation. Maybe you guys can just stop posting for a couple of weeks? [​IMG]

    Next, one haul from yesterday. A haul so big that it was a 2 man job. Wes was my wingman for this pick, so consider this part 1 of 2 - his post to follow shortly. Everything - and I mean everything is stone mint NWT or NWOT shape. Jackets are NWOT and suits maybe 1 wear at maximum. All shirts are factory folded. Outerwear is NWOT. Ties are NWOT. Stone. Cold. Mint.

    We've done this a few times, its kind of organic. Kind of a grab and keep thing but he found all the Versace squares and gave them to me. I found a bunch of grenadines and gave them to him. Ebb and flow.

    Sorry double tap...winding down vacation tomorrow and headed home. One Goodwill (zilch) and one estate sale (pottery). And the house sitter informed me that it's 87 degrees inside because the central AC finally quit...preparing to spend a ton for replacement, but it'll be worth it in the end. Time to send out another box or two for consignment.
