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.

    Jesus Spoo. I cannot even literally imaging coming across things like this at an estate sale. While my estate sale experience is limited, it's always been wayyy overpriced furniture and J. Garcia ties. You are amazing at sniffing this stuff out. At this point do you have persons contact you or do you do like we all do and go online?

    Thost PTBs are gorgeous. I have a weird fetish with old shoes and their construction as well as bringing them back to life. No chance these are small, right?

    I would have

    Does anyone know what the style of this jacket is? I'm not sure what a comparable might be.. I think this one might top the Orange RL Sporting Goods jacket from last week. Woah. Back to listing... So much good stuff out there now.
    Literally, like, literally who donates LP, in general, seriously. Or for this post, sell it at a garage sale. Do people not remember that they dropped multiple of thousands of dollars on a piece?

    Rag & Bone shirt, buttons on the men's side, but this drawstring makes me thing it's women's? Any idea?

    What are the PTP and sleeve measurements? I'm trying to think of any reason a man would wear that, but I'm coming up blank. It does loiok like a woman's shirt-dress (except that the tag says 'shirt'). It does NOT have the bust darts to accommodate female secondary sexual characteristics, but again....belted shirt dress. Unless it's some kind of bizarre "high fashion" meant for parading in the posh districts of NYC or something?

    You'd be surprised what some men are wearing now-a-days

    Pit to pit 17", shoulder seam to cuff 23". The thing throwing me off was the buttons on the men's side. Damn you R&B! I'm going with "Belted Shirt Dress".

    I would bet money on that being women's, button placement or no. 34" is absolutely women's small. 23" is average sleeve length for women. Length is probably around 37-39? I'd say Rag & Bone boyfriend style safari belted shirt dress S 34"

    I'm surprised nobody finds that tweed Burberry jacket exciting. I nearly fell over when I found it. The 30% off coupon in my pocket made it even better. I may have evil-laughed in the store.

    Took me 2 hours to get caught up on the thread this morning. :fu: I guess that's what I get for not following for a few days. Sooooooo much good stuff, too much to individually comment on. I'll just say well done gentlemen. :worship2: :worship: You guys are absolutely crushing it.

    On another note, does anybody recognize this font or nail pattern? On a pair of PRL English Bench Made shoes.

    Not sure how useful this will be but: 40% off sitewide Puma. Use code PUMAFF16 at checkout.

    Based on what I've seen on the bay, these are C&J. Serial code beginning with ALM lines up as well. Are those shell?
