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 bought the canvas version new and can confirm it will last you a lifetime. 2+ years in and it hardly shows any wear.

    Went out for the scavanger hunt and ended up finding some good stuff on the side for myself (and a few extras)

    Pendleton triple play: 1 Western and 2 for the ladies

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    Random acts of inexpensive cashmere

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    And a nicer wool/cashmere for big guys

    [​IMG]


    This happens to me sometimes: I get an idea in my head and end up buying silly stuff. Last time it was madras ties. This time: golf from Scotland

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    Dunhill Sport. Based on the tags, I'm assuming for the Asian market?

    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]



    NWOT Barbour purse for the wife ...

    [​IMG]

    And NWOT Barbour shirt (still had the cardboard collar band)

    [​IMG]


    AEs in reasonably good shape

    [​IMG]


    Trafalgar braces. There is a story behind these, but it needs photos. Coming soon ...

    [​IMG]


    Sport Coats. Starting with not so interesting J.Crew Thompson cotton ....

    [​IMG]

    moving on to made in US AKA Eddie Bauer camel hair

    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    Finishing with 90s (?) Armani in pristine condition. Seriously, you guys know what my jackets usually look like, so I hope you understand why I'm so happy with this one
    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    Outerwear: Patagonia for me.

    [​IMG]


    And this RLP Field jacket. Is it one of the good ones or not so good ones? Honestly, I couldn't care less. I really like it, it fits and it's going into my closet ...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    And to the other scavangers out there this weekend: a friendly shot across the bow ....
    [​IMG]


    Have an excellent weekend, gentlemen!

    John

    Bought these at thrift but paid more then I'd like ($25). For personal use minty and fit perfectly. More then I've paid for thrift shoes before but can I really complain about these gamos. Man I feel spoiled by the thrift when spending over $20 for personal wear in a thrift is something I still have to think hard about ha!

    Might rename my mannequin "Ralph"... or "Marco."

    Slim pickings tonight after work but happy with what I got. MIUSA Connies in 7.5 @Bahljs and a pair of Maggies in my size (10.5) I'd tried this same model on in Nordstrom before but at retail price ($300+) wasn't sold on them. For $9? Definitely.

    The idea for that was not the regular Van Heusen, but one with the "Royal Warrant" on it.

    And your "W" hand sign cracks me up, looks more like Mork's Nanu Nanu... [​IMG]
