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,

    Doh. Meant to type 1939. You're correct. Think 1934 was typed as I was looking at the vintage label guide and saw that.
    It's an HSM. Nothing too special I guess but it is crispy and no real wear from the looks of it.

    Agreed

    Yeah, I'm following it to see what a lot like that would bring (as I could do a few)

    Haven't had much time to post my finds recently, but just coming to the end of cleaning up a bunch of shoes I've picked up over the last couple of weeks, ready to go on the other site. I would have kept a bunch of these, but most are a UK9 and I'm a UK8.

    Chimala is super dope, retails for over $400, looks like the destroyed shirt. I believe a lot of their stuff is gender neutral so double check

    I remember seeing quite a few ~10-15 years ago in very small towns in Montana. (Like less than 500 people small towns)

    Very nice! HSM in that era was actually one of the highest-end RTW suits generally available. Really high quality make and materials. I'd put that one in the earlier half of the 39-49 window, probably 39-45 or so.

    What size is it?

    Nip-It pinball machine donated by The Fonz? Would he really get rid of THE machine if he had it? Would be a cool piece of memorabilia for us older folks.

    Not usually searching for these things, but came up on a Bally search. :)

    Actually found Canali in my neck of the woods. Says 52 [42]. I usually take 40r. Can I get this tailored to a 40 at reasonable cost? Or should I just let this go to the Bay? I assume this looks to big as is?

    Also found same size Arnold Brant jacket from Harry Rosen. Navy blue.

    @ATLjon and others:

    What is the word on Eidos quality? Seems like people think highly of their clothing but I don't have any experience with it.

    I can't wait to piss off some Ohio State fans at work by wearing this.

    I haven't picked up anything women's in like a year. Probably not worth a whole lot, I had just never seen that label without a Target logo before. Weird cloth handwritten tags inside make me think it was a sample. It also looks like it's missing a button, but I can't find a hole where that button would have been sold before. Missing the belt. It's a size 2.
