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.

    It's good, but where's the Savile Row?

    Hell yes!

    Vintage Spoo finds are my favorite Spoo finds.

    My hands down favorite as well. How crazy is that Givenchy space age hat? And the Harris Tweed cape? Just so great.

    @Purplelabel: Great find on that overcoat!


    Nice find on that Ferragamo swimsuit! My Moschino swimsuit was returned and it was 100% my fault. The elastic, which I apparently overlooked, was completely shot due to age. Double check yours for the same!

    Oh, and what's the story on that PRL cashmere...mens? Available? Smallish?

    PRL is mens, shawl collar, nice and fluffy. Tagged a M but looks smaller than that.

    Quick question:

    I'm in the field, is a vintage (80s probably) Hugo Boss camel colored Loro Piana cashmere blazer worth kopping at $19.99?

    Cheers!

    PM on the way.


    Probably not. White label? Shoulder pads? Unvented? Low buttoning point and/or gorge? If yes to any of those, I'd personally leave it. Others may disagree.

    For those dribbling over the Anderson & Sheppard overcoat, measurments are in.

    Chest: 46"
    Shoulder: 20.5"
    Pit to Pit: 22"
    Sleeve length: 25"

    ... the overall length is long, I'm 5ft 10 and it's knee length for me.

    PM me and we'll have a chat over tea and crumpets.

    After almost putting multiple holes in the studio wall I thought I'd spend the weekend in! Good luck to whoever hits my usual territory.

    Fffffgfgggccck. Lost my Rx RayBans somewhere in a thrift. Sticking around for a while longer in case someone turns them in, but I'm not hopeful. So that's like $300 out the window, unless a miracle happens. I need a cigarette...

    Someone probably already took them to the counter and paid for them

    Surprised myself by how much stuff I was able to drag home from a 40 km bicycle ride/thrift store adventure.

    Definitely a market there, just depends on how much meat there is on the bones. What price are they asking?
