    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.

    Haha, if I wasn't lazy I would find that Eddie Izzard clip where he's talking about visiting Texas and the subset of people (at Billy Bob's, I think) dressed-up like historical figures.


    (San Antonio can be nice to visit with the river walk and the female Texican punk bands).

    Pretty good rolls. What was the tell? Could you see something zoomed in, or numbers?

    Edit. Good eye. I see the front left toe creasing on the one picture. Bummer would have been a good price ha

    LOL, yeah I was psyched when I found those on the bay, thinking they were shell... The numbers match, but further research uncovered that that number was also used for burgundy calf for a while. If anyone out there actually wears a 13 A, HMU...

    When I first found I was on the cell phone. I looked on the computer and zoomed and saw that toe area. Well if anyone wants calf that looks a lot like shell and has flippers for feet still a good deal. I also rarely look at user names when browsing eBay.

    Hi guys
    Is this coat worth taking for around 40$? It's Luciano Barbera womens baby camel coat but looks pretty short and 44" over bust. How old is? Looks recent :/

    I've found in general that the big name brands in menswear don't always translate to the women's side of the business.

    For instance I regularly grab sub-$50 Kiton pieces for my wife, yet I don't expect to be able to flip for profit.

    That does look more recent and would be great for someone's personal use, but I would look closely before taking it to flip. This is the type of prices I see usually

    No meat on the bones... Yet stunning deals for personal use if the style makes sense. My wife says "too mannish" whenever I suggest something like that. Fwiw

    All the Church's with that stamp on the insole have been tagged with UK size (just to put the nail in the coffin US sizes don't use "F" as a width). I think you're thinking of Cheaney Premium Tweed for Church's. The one pair I've found for those were tagged as a US size.

    They stopped making the Brown Label Canali in 2013, I believe they started using it between 2001-2003. Prior to that was Blue label Canali and prior to that is the Black label Canali. The current label is silver with the curly 'C'
