    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 saw 8-10 pairs of Alden's today in the Marshall's in NYC on 6th Ave and 19th St. Priced around $200-300. Many of the boxes had stickers on them labeled display. They had a pair of black penny loafers, a pair of black tassel loafers, and a pair of light brown long wings out on display. I didn't check all the boxes. Sizes were mostly 8s and 11.5s. Some were triple E. Thought I'd share.

    Picked up some APC selvedge denim. They look brand new, but... they are as stiff as cardboard. Is that normal?

    Thanks!
    Not sure if I want more. It's for flipping, and I don't know how it'll do.

    They usually sell anywhere between $2 - $10 in an auction. Some of the nicer ones can get up to $12 - $15 in a Buy It Now setting.

    It's a decent price. But, for whatever reason, the market on women's Gucci shoes is way down right now.

    I picked up a black pair the very first month they came out and it was nicely made with continental stamps and all but turned out to be fake. Luckily my bro was with me who was able to spot the difference. JS there are lot of quality fakes out there now due to hype.

    Good score if real.

    I know this is almost a day old and I've read a bit of the later back and forth. Whether off the cuff or hours towards putting the wording together:

    Simply displaying happiness to that rhythm and rhyme.

    Found these recently - they're all available

    Luchiano Visconti, 56R, beige with windowpane plaid. No tag to say what the fiber content. Dual vented. I think the sleeves may have been shortened, as there is 2" of turnup.

    Canali, 56, charcoal gray 2 button, dual vented 100% wool. The first hand stitching under the lapel that I've ever seen.

    Luciano Barbera reversible scarf. The front is clearly silk; the back may be wool or a wool cashmere blend.
