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,

    I'll post pics later of stuff but have you ever met a female flipper at your local store who's just a huge cunt? This motherfucker literally grabbed items out of my hand when I was looking through the racks.

    I just picked up a suit with that same tag. And it was made in Italy and has the zegna traveller cloth as shown. Confused me as it makes it seem like it's a different maker than Zegna proper. Insights?

    And pop on first non-denim RRL thrifted, along with a few more vintage Pendleton to add to my collection. Sadly the lighter colored one has quite a few moth holes I didn't catch until after purchase. [​IMG]

    Only find yesterday - a pretty nice Belvest sports jacket. First time I've ever found Belvest in the UK; I'm not aware of any stockists over here. Tagged 52C European, fits like a 40 short. Buttery soft wool.

    On my way out of the city to visit a friend I hit a thrift shop I rarely go to. Left there with 20+ pairs of men's pants from the 1980's from Matsuda/Nicole, Yohji Yamamoto, Comme Des Garcons, and Issey Miyake. Crazy pleats all over, lots of weird materials, low crotches, etc. I'll take photos when I can. Is anyone an expert on the Japanese designers in the 1980's? It's really intriguing stuff.

    Yes....as you can see the tag just identifies the cloth the suit was made from. Just like all the suits you see with Loro Piana tags, you have to look at the size/material tag to see where it was made, and perhaps by the looks of the tag who actually made the suit. There are many many different makers using the Zegna cloth to choose from but only one of them is ...ZEGNA!

    Odd... Why has she been allowed to behave in such a manner? If the crazy bitch tried that down here (with many of the flippers that I know), she will be on a soft foods diet for a while. We tolerate competition, but never rudeness or outright theft.

    I like this "eddie" guy. Send him over here so we can play darts, get wasted. And party around Tokyo. :slayer:

    He can keep the shoes, thoughtful people are my kind of people.


    Pimp slap incoming. . . .

    The Swag is real.

    Hit up @easye. He digs it. I know a little. But not as much as you need

    Early estate sale. Some teaser pics. Been looking for a blackwatch cashmere scarf so I was excited about that. Bergdorf vest is leather and cashmere lined. Can't complain when your total is 10 bucks. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
