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.

    In that case congrats! [​IMG]

    Everyone does have their own style when it comes to turning over items. Right or wrong but I regularly find myself in the "sitting on it for 6 months" category. Case in point, I just relisted this for another 30 days, twice going withoit a sale despite having over 55 watchers the first time and 31 this last time.

    Makes me think I should have grabbed the "Tommy" polo shirt I saw today, during lunch (didn't take pic). I don't know about them, but this one had the different red/white/blue color panels in the shirt, the 85 crest and number, and also had a "check" pattern on part of the collar. Seems like that would be the kind of "Tommy" folks pay for.

    Maybe I'll take another look at it tomorrow.

    Anyone think it would be totally heinous to cut-up and re-purpose a Sawyer of Napa Shearling full-length mens overcoat?

    I spotted one the other day and was wondering opinions. They want $50 for it and it's a size 46 which would yield a ton of shearling material for use in other projects. It has a couple small spots on the outside and is missing a belt.

    Can someone remind me what size 99 inside a cap-toe oxford would mean again? Is it MTM/custom?

    First off, HOLY SHIT! @Fueco

    Yesterday I felt like the thrift gods were fucking with me. First the Viviam, then:

    But then the the last Goodwill came through slightly.

    Today I wasn't going to go anywhere, but of course that didn't last. Left a Coogi polo collar sweater in 4XL and an uneventful Lauren Ralph Lauren women's hand knit. But this called out to me from the "coming to the floor" rack.

    And what run would be complete without a little Uncle Ralph.

    Same store as the blanket and fireman jackets. Just waking on that Cold Wave set and the Stadium jacket.

    Does that polo jacket have brass toggles inside that allow the lower half of the jacket to fold up inside itself? I found a red jacket with the exact same pockets on the outside, but couldn't figure out what the huge pockets inside the jacket were for.

    Did not kop, btw. Worth going back for? Too big and red for personal use.

    Nah, this is a full length duster. I've also seen a short, reversible version and a non-reversible. Could those be game pockets on the inside of the one you saw?

    I would imagine PRL has made a thousand variants off of this.

    Sounds like you found a field coat with game bags.

    Are you in LA, I feel like I passed that Champion sweatshirt the other day, because I didn't if it was a thing, thought it could be though and looked closely at it.
