    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.

    Something seems mightily off about that jacket. YSL RG used to be made by Zegna...so unless that is a sample then I don't know what to think it is. Placement of the tags is also very strange.

    Makes sense. Well, it looks more like Pilati to me but everyone writes Tom Ford on every old Gucci or YSL auction so don't see why you can't.

    I've been reading through the Buying and Selling on eBay thread a lot lately, and I've tried to implement a few of their photography suggestions to up my game. Here are a few pictures I took last night to experiment:

    Found this one a month or two back but forgot to post pictures. True thrift Hermes:

    I think the picture of the shoes turned out OK but I was disappointed with the tie- even with the lighting option turned up in the Windows image viewer editor thing, it still looks too dimly lit. It's still a massive step up from the blurry messes I was putting up before, though.

    Is this a Woolrich jacket? Tags missing other than dry clean only tag. Caught my eye because it has Talon zippers.

    These three make five Aldens for the week. All 10 B/D. Captoes are NA.

    The thrift gods were smiling on me today! Not only did they save me $400+, I add a thrifted item to my wedding rig. No shit, I was going to buy some Carminas before COB today. Thankfully, the Aldens fit and I can save that money.

    Can anyone help me with the maker of these trousers? I already looked up the mills and checked out some brands that use them. But I didn't see any tags like these. Thanks!

    It's been slow out there for me. Did find this a brand I am not familiar with but the completed listing looked promising.

    I did pay up for the three today. If any were your size I'd be happy to send them to you at cost.

    Have been in the shop the past few days, but had some time to hit a few spots. Really starting to dig hunting tees (if you can't tell).

    Start off with this dope/massive/unofficial Bad Brains tribute blanket. $2.92? OK!
