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.

    I would, but that's pretty much going rate. If it has the wood case, definitely yes. Not the most desirable receiver, but a good start.

    This is so true. I once found a vintage Brioni SC that felt like straight up cardboard for $1. Flipped it in like 15 min for $100 to someone on eBay who collects vintage Brioni. Not a huge win, but an easy $99 and I never would have found it if I was relying sloely on the touch method.


    That is a chesterfield with a tiny collar. Edit: I'm on my phone, so it's kind of hard to see, but that la what it looks like from here.

    Dope. What's the size on that bad boy?

    Agreed on the vintage brioni, wool technology has come a long way it seems like.

    I never touch first, I will always look inside. I sometimes find no label, shit myself and look in the pockets to find a bespoke label... mostly strike out, but have found a few. Unless you really know your cloth and super count, I'm certain if someone only uses the touch method, they'll strike out and miss a hell of a lot.

    I'd rather take my time and inspect each garment I find.

    An item is good or it isn't. And you should know that before you see who made it.

    I typically look at every label but there are times when speed matters and I scan for button style, fabric designs, feel the fabrics and shoulder padding.

    Looks Legit but need more pics of the small things like zippers and snaps. FYI its called the annapuma and it's from the fall winter collection from 2007. Not all moncler have logos on the outside and That should not have jetted pockets.

    I say that, and then at the next stop I find a NWT Patagonia wetsuit, along with shirts by Filson, Pendleton and a skeet.

    I'm sure I miss a lot of awesome stuff - especially in the men's departments - but in women's I do go very much by touch. Well, sight - certain things grab my attention - and then touch. This method serves me well enough, and it certainly finds things made of high quality wool, cashmere, mohair, angora, baby alpaca, all sorts of genuine fur and leather, and once a sweater made from *yak wool*, but as I say, I'm sure I miss good stuff. When I have time to go through every single item on a rack I do find things I ordinarily would not. OTOH, I only have so much space for inventory storage, so it may be that *not* finding all the good stuff is actually to my benefit, money quite aside.

    Medium/15 1/2. Cool shirt, but I noticed after I took the picture how over dry-cleaned it was. plus some some fraying on the collar.

    No dice, just wood grain print on the cabinet. I'm going to check in the off chance it gets 1/2 off/is still around in the next few days.
