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.

    Had to drop some things off at the savers, so I took a 'quick' look around.

    Authentic Made in the UK... It would seem. Fun, but maybe not flippable

    fuckyeah!

    If it weren't for a 30+K euro kiton I handled in Milan this year, this would be the thinnest, lightest weight leather I've ever had. If you're passing on cheap Remy, you should reconsider, some are pretty amazing.

    Need to figure out these shell loafers. Resoled inside and out. Stamped markings are clear. Florsheim? Bostonian?

    Thanks! If they're too big I'll probably triple my money on grailed anyway!

    No problemo
    The 4 digit model number is a store special order that's why you didn't see it in the 3 digit models on FitNY

    I've done well with some of their stuff. The tailored pieces that I've found were made by Adrian Jules and I've also had a Drake's-made tie from them.

    10% of resale or retail? Looks like it could be a nice design! I'm pretty obsessed and have found several at thrifts and otherwise cheap on ebay and underpriced in shops. Just be aware (if you're not already) that Karastan is a machine-made rug and won't hold the value of a hand-woven--doesn't mean they can't look equally good on your floor though.

    10% (actually closed to 20% as I research more) of ones being resold on eBay and otherwise.

    And yeah, I didn't buy it for any crazy appreciation/value, just loved the color scheme. It's actually already in our entryway, need to have it cleaned shortly though.
