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.

    Seattle is a great thrift town. You just gotta know where to look and when. I dont drive 6 hours round trip for nothing. Just gotta work the town before everbody gets off work.

    ....yeah, I saw that one today. Lake City? Had a good laugh. Spent about $90. None of it on that tie.
    [/quote

    I rarely find $90 worth of anything at that particular spot, but the whole town is a crap shoot. I've struck out (often) and struck gold (occasionally) at just about every shop in town.

    I kept clicking "multi" quote to see whether this got answered. I don't think it completely did, but that's a German size. It will be around a 52L. There are regular sizes (EU 48, 50, 52, etc.), but long is not often marked "long," but rather 98, 102, 106, etc. Short, on the other hand, is ca. half of a regular: 24, 25, 26, etc.

    It's an awful system, but I haven't seen it much outside of the German-speaking countries. That said, I see it on non-German brands that are intended for sale in the German-speaking world, i.e. PRL. I posted SuitSupply's size chart a couple of years ago, but here it is as a guide:

    This picture above, is alluding to a future point that I believe will help the new comers greatly, it will make sense.
    Edit: My other post is way insanely shorter, and this contributors recent haul is a perfect example of what I will be proving. But after having to type english to those who maybe be fucking retarded, aiming for across the board literally bility.....fuck that shit. Maybe nnext year.



    WITH FINALLY A SAFE AMOUNT OF TIME BEING PASED,. LONG ENOUGH FOR A PIECE TO BE GONE, PASSED ON BY THE LAZIEST FUCKING DISPLAY I HAVE SEEN ON THIS THREAD ME ENTIRE TWO YEARS HERE........AND YES I WILL SHARE IT AND YES THE MONEY YOU COULD HAVE GROSSED WILL BE POSTED. ...THAT'S WAY FURTHER DOWN THOUGH.......had to wait some time to be sure they had nno shot to make money off the thing though.

    NOW DUE TO MY SOMEWHAT DISTANCE AND LESS REGULAR INVOVEMENT HERE RELATIVE TO A YEAR OR SO AGO, I AM SURE TI HAVEN'T SEEN THE ENITRE PICTURE OF WHATS OCCURING, HOWEVER OVER SUCH A SHORT PERIOD OF TIME, ALSO WITNESINGING SO MANY DIFFERENT INDVIDUALS EXPRESS AN EMOTIONAL STATE IT IS CAUSING PROGLONGED NEGATIVE HEAD SPACE.....I GUESS I FELT THAT PERHAPS SIMPLY THE A DIRECT APPROACH TO THESE PEOPLE, WHO I A GUESSIG ARE NOT LEARNING, NOT CARING, AND/OR REOFFENDING WITHOUT A SECOND THOUGH......WELL SOMETIMES I CAN BE AFFECTIVE, THAT AND THIS DISPLAY OF PURE LAZYNESS COMBINED W9ITH A DISPLAYED FREEWAILL AD LACK OF CARE, BY CIMPLY ASKING OTHERS, THUS GIVING NO JOKE ABOUT THEIR TIME OR ANYTHING, THEY JUST DON'T WANT TO DO ANYTING FOR THEMSELVES?...... WELL LETS JUST SAY ANY OPPORTUNITY TO GET REAL WITH SOME PEOPKE THAT LIVE THERE LIFE IN A SUCH A PATHETIC, DISGUSTING MATTER, AND IT'S A HONOR. HOPE IT HELPS.


    NOTE: The following two spoilered pieces, are relatively long compared to a standard postr thread posts.....However, it doesn't matter if its War&Piece Transcriped, IF YOUR ARE A NEW MEBER IN THE SLIGHTEST, OR JUST GENERALLY DEEMED A NEW COMING. FUCKING READ IT. EVER WORDS. OR YOUR FUTURE STATUS WITH BE SWAZYE.

    Contributors: No need to bother with a word of this, this shit is elementary....just attempt a differenct approach.
    Title Photo importance will come, but lets start at the core. Over the last few weeks especially, with a jump in new members, has also prectabibly came with, the onslaught of shitty fucking questions. I am specifically choosing now to address this because I think I know how to overall nib this in bud for all newcomers that see, and there is an absolute perfectly expample to reference, that I wanted to wait and be sure to give enough time that another thrifter would has without a doubt thrifte that piece by now, just to be sure they are not unable to go back and pick it up and flip. But don't worry, if your curious, I will tell you a quite narrows range, and when subtracting sellers fees and product cost, allowing you to then realize roughly how much money yon't profit for your lazy bullshit.

    Those who engage in the act of just constactly polling the threat for answers, regardless the question and ease of find the answerU Gon their own, well I've sorta figured there areat it wih there only a Hfew types that are guilty of this. Those who are conscious of what they are doihg, believe the innoncent sense of the novice status will manipulate either someone with the answer or simply any thread vet, to simply respond and tell him what he needs to know, thus not having to do a fucking thing on their own. There are others you may not be Stephen Hawking, yet possess a certain level of understanding of thesmeves and and what they are good at ad where they struggle. Essentially, there are the fucking idiots, who believe they lack lack the interlligence and neccesssary resourcef ulsness to track down what they need to know with ease, knowing others would fimply be better, leading them to ask the thread and hppe someone its suckered in to helping.

    This last group I believe deserves a pass, and if contributings members, their questions posted, deserve a response ny anybody who is able... Strictly the scenarion of those in the feild, and needing to go about their day, ths stoping and their flow and having to research ever question they may need to have qanswer, on their phone, could waste time, elongate one of your stops, ruin your times our runes, but perhaps sticking sticing them in traffic, missing route stops and possible because of goddamn Cell Phones. And yes, I know, these things are like computers for the most part and can be utilized as such, I just personally feel that in this scenario, thread Vets deserve passes and answers, the noobs can eat a dick ir either guilty of the above especially.


    1. If you are guilty of this resorting to questions bullshit, believing the way you are doing it, the tone taken, your new tatus, perhaps previeced innocence triggerign someone willing to aid, or any other "manipulation" tactic you believe you possess and can reely utiilize to get what you want and not do shit.....well I find it' s trange you've made it this long not being made aware that you don;t possess shit. Thinks such as going 5 years in college and never getting laid, are sure tell signs, you don't know how, you just comacross as a lazy dickhead, too lazy to answer his own questions. Worse, someone who is totally unwilling to implement their resourcefull nesness for whatever fucking reasons, cuz doing so and you can find anything you need. If any of you new or fairly new, believe this is a Menswear Utopioia, featuring purelyes images or dope shit and the abillity to learn and obtain knowledge of anything due to all the members being so thoroughly and immensly informed...if this is you, well you're kind right, but incredibly incorrect was well. There may be a welath of info in the minds of the contributors an this amount of knowledge only matched with the 10s of thousands of pics spanning the pages of these thread, show pieces of menswear that are equivalent to Playboy spreads, and just like the bitches in the Plaboy spreads, you being a lazy unresroucesful fucking leech here, and your will never et any of it.

    2. If you actually are lazy enough to attempt this shit more than once or twice, hoping it'lll slip by nooticed and simply address be someone? Please, for your sake, everyone elses, all our time, and purely out of respect to this thread, get the fuck fuck out of here and go collect baseball cards or someshit, very little effort needed in partaking in that act. But if your that lazy, you will never thrift a fucking frayed vintage Brooks tie or a goddamn Brooks Oxford, let a lone something of note or value. And if you actually are aware of the fact that you are just, well, incredibly fucking stupid? This cop out doesn't cut it, if your too dumb to digure it our, at least be able to prove you tried with a few sentences to provide contezt or your present scenario, otherwise, you too, Peace.

    MOST IMPORTANT NOTE: Honestly, the motivation, reasoning, the guilt, the innocense, the brains, or not etc....all of this, and the end of the day totally doesn't even matter here. The more important factor of note, is your transparancy seen with your willingleess to essentially show however thousands of fuN. ATking new users who peep this friendd dairly, on top of all the people who do so more religiously, that you are obviously, simpe being reference the thread toT support this idea would work, are totally and completely \void of a single resourceful bone in your entire body. Two lazy to use it? Your just a fucking loswer piece of shit....But, truly unable to attempt, beinng you don't in facto possess it, the skill is simply void from any far corner of your brain?........welll 1. Fuck, that sucks 2. Delete your SF account now and get the fucck otta here as well. 3. Portraying yourself as pomeone either incapable of this, a thought process of which void, can only be xlained as severe learning leasorders....aka broadcasting, that although not your fault, your fucking dumbb...if thats so sorry, that sucks.....Regardless if your Hawking or an Ex Jersey Shore caste Star... no effprt? no nice.............
    Next simply put, nextime you are unsure of the answers to a generate question you have?..... Figure it the fuck out on out on your own.


    ........FOR THE PERSON WHO MADE NO EFFORT AFTER PULLING A TLITTLE OLDER ERMINEGELDO ZEGNA SUIT ABOUT 5 DAYS AGO OR SO.. AND NO EFFORT INCLUDES, A LONG, DETAILEX RESPONSE TO YOUR WHY THESE TYPES OF QUESTIONS ARE NOT APPRECIATED HERE AND GO IGNORED, IN WHICH AFTER THE PERSON JUST STATED FACTED OVIOUS CHARACTERISTICS OR PERHPS MEANS OF IMPORTANCE, PURELY TO RPOVE THE POINT, FIRE IT THE FUCK OUT ON YOUR OWN.....AND AFTER READING THAT YOU ACTUALLY SIMPLYE RECEIVED THAT AS A NO TO THE ANWERS RELTING THE ANIMAL?


    OH AND OF COURSE LASTLY.........OOF AND ONE LAST THINK. AFTER TOTALLY READ AND UNDERSTAOOD, EXCELLENT. NOW YOU DO BOTH THRIFT THREADS. DO YOURSELF A FAVOR, AND DON'T SAY SHIT, UNTIL ALL THIS IS DOWN. II'M BEING DEAD SERIOUS. HAVE A BLAST.

    Sup everyone! Sorry I haven't been posting my hauls lately, been trying to sell my items the same week I get them in and potato pics just don't do justice to the stuff I find. Saw someone getting crap the other day because they don't post regularly so I thought I'd pop in and let you know I'm alive and well. Here's some of yesterdays highlights...


    From the top; Rag and Bone,Trussini, Brunello Cucinelli,All Saints

    That is truly the most repulsive item of clothing I've ever seen. It looks like a group of unicorns used it for a bukkake rag. It must be worth millions.

    Oh. My. Gawd. I'm about to lapse into Valley Girl speak. I want this shirt so very much. I have a rainbow-obsessed daughter (yes, I know this is a men's shirt, but RAINBOW ehrmegehrd RAINBOW).

    Check back daily for a while. They just might not have put the full lot out due to space or how the sorting was done.

    I rarely look through thrift store books, although a Murakami here and there is always appreciated. Did you know about that particular collection prior to or was that on the spot research? I figured there's money to be had of first edition photography books and such, but this is way cool.
