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.

    A few recent shirt finds:

    Ferragamo makes polo shirts? As the kids say, TIL.

    Thread first on Skender Dragovoja?

    [​IMG]

    Slightly different colorway, but basically the same shirt as this: https://www.gilt.com/brand/skender/product/26040601-skender-collapsing-pocket-shirt?origin=s_brand

    I can't really find much information about this label online. This guy was apparently an American designer that did a collection in 2010 and then disappeared. Only mentioned once before on Styleforum, a guy in B&S trying to unload a pair of jeans a few years back. Construction isn't anything special but it has a nice athletic fit and the "collapsing pocket" design is sort of interesting, so it's going into the rotation for now.

    Lol, always fun when you post your meager finds to the thread exactly when someone else drops a bomb. Good shit @Cj52racers , that Angel Bespoke jacket is ridiculous. 3 roll 2, patch pocket, quarter lined, surgeon cuffed (I think), windowpane blue-on-light-blue... so gorgeous.

    Happy to help!
    PS Jeans is ok with certain things, but not good for resale. I have a really nice hoody by PSJ that I live it at home.
    PS by Paul smith is better, the tailoring is awesome.
    Paul Smith London is the good stuff you want, usually made in Italy or Japan.

    Then there are the fusion lines like Red Ear (Japanese design, Italian made usually)

    Was just going to comment on Angel Bespoke, that's gotta be a thread first and beautiful as well.

    That was my second one from the same store. It was a bit higher than true thrift, like $60 I think?

    Anyone know if there are any stores/sites that sell decent luggage on the cheap? My wife and I have been looking. I found a bitchin Samsonite 20" 3D roller hard case for $49.99 at Marshalls a few weeks ago. I've been checking TJ Maxx/Marshalls every chance I get but all I've been finding is Kenneth Cole/Perry Ellis stuff that feels flimsy. Will probably just end up getting the same one I got that Amazon has for $100, but it would be pretty cool to get it for less. eBay items get bid up and shipping costs are usually pretty crazy obviously. Are there any stores I'm not thinking of?

    Tuesday Morning. We've found some nice samsonite pieces there for super cheap. Not sure if it's a nationwide chain, though.

    Thanks! I'd never heard of that but there's one on my wife's drive home from work. I'll have her stop tonight.

    Actually, my wife and I found a piece to our set at this exact place. I had never heard of it, we just wandered in. We were able to replace a small hand piece for something crazy like $10-15.
