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.

    Cheers,

    Does the buyer know? I hope you both are protected.

    From what I've read GRITTI is made for the outlets and generally par or worse than ZZEGNA

    Found this Scott and Charters made for UnionMade in Scotland cashmere sweatshirt at GW yesterday. Who donates this stuff?! It is very recent, retailed for $350 and is in amazing shape! It fits like a glove so I'm not complaining [​IMG]

    AT this point I suspect they have a small handful of criminal actors who have infiltrated and are running a ring. They may even have flagged you as a seller they target. If eBay is aware and hasn't done anything about it you have claims against them too. I'd a) stop using GSP, which I will be doing too , but also b) contact authorities.

    It doesn't help that I've wanted to sue eBay for a LONG time and this is just one damn good reason.

    Had a meeting near one of the stores I visit, so stopped in for quick look


    Caught this out of the corner of my eye and my heart rate picked up. ThenI got a little closer. Damn you, Faded Glory! Damn you to HELL!!!

    At least I found some Polo

    Is this getting closer to the right Tommy?

    I know this isn't anything but my amateur status still makes me want to pick up things like this. Especially when it still has the extra buttons in the little plastic bag, the pockets haven't been opened and it costs less than a buck

    Tie. Yay!

    No label and needs some love. But it'll do for around the house ....

    I picked up a gorgeous Bellisimo shearling overcoat last fall, I'm sure you saw on Google retail on these things can range from 2K-7K generally. Haven't been able to unload it for the life of me though...wish potential buyers could just feel the quality.

    Underpriced consignment. Traded a couple old Ben Sherman shirts for it.
    Leather/wool Brioni full zip cardigan thing. Size Large, fits like M. Seems very recent?

    Thrift a pocket square or formal shirt. There are plenty of options to add a thrifted item to your ensemble. Hell, I will donate something to your effort.
