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 have an opportunity to pick up a Bernard Wetherill NWT coat, windowpane check 3/4 length for $150US. Is this a good deal? I can't find much information other that Savile Row offering both RTW and custom.

    Louis Vuitton experts, can I get you to weigh in on authenticity here? looks like the LV monogram might be slightly split but the rest looks good. @SpooPoker @kbadgley84 anyone else

    ^ I didn't think LV chopped through the'LV'?

    I picked this up earlier, but its odd to me that Pringle would add nylon in this...

    Don't half ass it, Frenchy. You need to wear the trousers, as well.

    Then you'd look pimp.

    Definitely looks good but that cut up LV is very concerning. I can't say for sure either way

    Just a couple of vintage pieces:

    With this and those Carreras I posted a couple of days ago, I could be the coolest bad guy in any movie from 1986.

    This is the type of thing the kids go for, right?

    They have a tapered cut that's how it is. The Pattern matching is perfect from side to side of the seam. The handle placement on the pattern is perfect. They will all have the same cut as yours.

    i could be wrong on that. the new one i saw has a very similar SN as yours, and the new ones dont have that brass button. I recalled reading on ebay 'how to spot fake LVs' and the brass button was mentioned as being a giveaway on fakes. But, i looked around and saw some older ones on ebay with the brass button.


    tldr; i have no idea what im talking about. :)

    i'm completely out of my territory but the only thing i can say is that it looks and feels very well-made. i try to avoid heavily-faked stuff but this is actually something my boss bought hahaha
