1. I'd like to announce that animated avatars are now available again. You'll have to reload, but they are once more possible.

    We've been doing a ton of work behind the scenes. The site load speed was already under 1/2 of what Huddler's was, on average, and we installed cloudflare, which means that the site should be even faster. A ton more will go on in the weeks and months to come, and some things will be more visibile, and some less.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    I went to 2 Savers today... The first one was the one where I saw the Hickey Freeman suits the other day. The Southwick suit I saw there was gone, but the 50L Hickey Freeman was there. It's the black Hickey Freeman label, not the newer silver / grey, but it seems pretty nice if anyone is interested.

    The 2nd Savers yielded a BB green checked shirt, a Polo RL blue houndstooth shirt, and a Joseph Abboud pink dress shirt. My favorite find was this Pendleton Woolen Mills driving cap:

    Found a Mint Oxxford 48L suit super 110 navy blue. First oxxford ever... If anyone is interested shoot me an offer. Pants are 42L measurements are coming.

    would trade for similar suit 42L from suits that are in the equal range brand wise.

    Also found a brooks country club long sleeve button down.. Mint XL (didn't know it retails for $168 until I got home)

    Also bought a pair of Daniel Cremieux Wool/Cashmere 95/5 pants. Only bought it b/c new with tag and it'll fit my old man.

    http://www.peruzzispa.com/en/shop/jacket-s-store/classic-four-button-short-coat.html might be a good pickup. How is the quality?

    Whaaaat?! Oh man! I'll take the non-red one in 44L if you're willing to go back and proxy. Still, a cashmere Oxxford, one of which is NWOT? Grab em and sell them on here! People will buy a purple Kiton, why not a red Oxxford?

    The lapels look fine to me. I'm sure it'll appear higher up when it's actually worn and the shoulders are given some structure to. That is Oxxford's signature "fish-mouth" lapel. I've seen it on other US-made suits like Norman Hilton and another one whose name slips me but I always mistake it for Oxxford and disappointment hits when I see the label. I'm personally not a big fan of the fish-mouth lapel, but I know some guys who are.

    That brochure is awesome!

    Seconds if it doesn't work out for you Nataku!

    Are you keeping the suit? I don't really wear suits anymore, but would consider it again with one like that :laugh:

    IC, I would keep mining that place, but you should go grab the rest in the morning just b/c it is a small place. If anyone knows anything about oxxford they will mostly likely be gone at night because there is not a big section to hunt through.
