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,

    yes, the demand is high. of course it depends how it's priced but at thrift prices and no problems with the item I grab 100% of the time

    Seeing as suitsupply sells better than Canali (at least from what I've seen on eBay and experienced myself) I'd say yes, if for flipping. It's a trendy brand right now.

    Two E thrifts today. Gravati belly cut gators and an exceptional Van Cleef and Arpels full lizard skin made in France atache. Thread first for VCA I'm pretty sure. Look at that stitching on the interior!

    The Vineyard Vines and Rooster ties are keepers, but the rest will most likely make their way onto ebay.
    The "Savile Row" tie is ancient madder.

    22.5" chest, 33" length, 24.5" sleeves, and 46" waist on the pants. That tux's been floating around a while and they never responded the couple times I asked for clarification on those measurements.

    Those suspenders would pay for the tux,or at least most of it.

    Posting because I think someone would appreciate a company that stands behind their products. Cool old dead stock hat

    the all-time worst treatment i've ever gotten in a retail store was at the hands of an SA at VC&A. i remember being simultaneously horrified and deeply entertained at how thoroughly this lady big-timed me.

    I never find fantastic hauls like everyone else. The most I get is a decent shirt or 2 and maybe a sport jacket every now and then and usually they fit me so they never go anywhere but into my closet. Today I passed through a place near my mother's house and found a nice looking midnight blue notch collar tux. Jacket is about a 38 and the pants I would guesstimate are 30" x 28" with about 2" of hemmed material to play with. Very very fine material, much nicer than my own tuxedo.
