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,

    Whoa. Rubinacci and that Despos. Chris does outstanding work from the couple I've seen in the wild.

    Some recent finds, better pics of the Marlows, and I finally took a photo of the seraphin with a decent camera so why not

    RRL N/A, and they're probably only going to last two months at the rate they're shedding indigo

    Only took a month for this thrift store to put the pants out to a jacket I picked up, but when they finally did it was deep discount day so they were less than $1

    Okay guys looking to do some trading. I bought this ghost whisperer after Christmas from STP.
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    It is NWT. I have never worn it. Would have been a Christmas present for me this year but my wife has made it clear she hates the color. She is very cool with my thrifting habit so I can't complain. Fyi, this is the cobra or serpent green and is a large.
    So, I would be happy to trade for a similar type jacket, does not need to be new, does not need to be mountain hardware. I would be very happy if I could get a similar light weight down jacket in large or a not huge xlarge in a more subdued color like a navy. Only color I don't like is black.
    PM me if interested.

    a few people seemed curious about my Nicole/Matsuda, Yohji Yamamoto, CDG, Issey Miyake find, so here are the photos. I'd like to find a buyer who can buy the whole lot and move it realizing profit for both of us. Sizes range from waist 30" to waist 34" Haven't steamcleaned yet so sorry if things look a little wrinkly.


    Below is the meat of the find, with Matsuda/Nicole Ltd. on the left, Issey Miyake in the Center, and Yohji Yamamoto wares on the right.

    Matsuda (which is the label with the least notoriety but I think has the nicest designs of the lot)

    Thanks, new keyword learned. Was just gonna put "classic print". My policy on Burberry has become only take it if 1) the print is visible somewhere 2) logo polo/tee 3) trench (and not "Burberrys'")

    RLBL (who made this? No caruso label and I know the RLBL has been discontinued)




    That may be a Canterelli tag on the RLBL.

    So, heres my weekend, which Im happy with.

    Giacomo de Senese tie is awesome, its burnout velvet but its hard to see in the pics.

    Small guys, that swatch of solid classics with pois linings are all indochino bespoke samples and are small.

    Sunglass haul this weekend was crazy, B&L shooters with the Bakelite bridge (in peach!) are probably 50s. Ensign aviators are green mineral glass and probably 60s.

    Plaid jacket with the blue overcheck is cashmere. Cole Haans are made in England but I don't think they're Edward Green. BB by Thurston I only saw one time before this one today, thats pretty cool. Bergdorf sweater is cucinelli. Orioles jacket is hella old. American Optical pilots are NWOB.

    Hermes scarf was $5 and I pulled it out right in front of this other woman who was clearly trolling the rack to flip scarves and cut right in front of me. So that made it all the much nicer. Of course Im holding it up to the light, examining it (bullshit, I knew what it was before I touched it.) Holding that Hermes logo waaayyyy up high. LOL.
