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 am curious about this as well. Not as much about the Signature, because I don't think it sells all that well on the Bay, but about the Couture line. I passed on a lot of Donna Karan Couture SC's and Suits the other day. They were pretty well made and seem to have some handwork, but I wasn't sure if I would have an outlet for them. I am also under the understanding that Martin Greenfield made the line in the U.S. What do you guys think?

    Some of the stuff was made by Saint Andrews (who makes a lot of RLPL stuff). This is what your looking for

    Yeah, I saw that and thought it was insanity. Not to derail this threads intent, but was that from a Signature suit or the Couture line, because the Couture line stuff I came across had no makers tags. And no doubt, 36S is all yours.

    That's a US military issue jacket. Not linen. It's rip-stop (the squares) cotton. None of that stuff was worth grabbing so you did good leaving it behind.


    Wow! That's super cool! :worship:

    To be honest, I have no idea. I have never seen that label before in my life. This is the couture label that I am familiar.

    Found a cool Coach messenger bag from the late 80's today. It's called a Carrier. Super thick, heavy leather. I would post a pic, but b/c im new, it takes seven years to get it up and by then the thread has gone 10 pages down the line. So, if anyone wants to see it, LMK -Available.

    Found a cool T-shirt! Yeah, yeah - I know, I know - but it's an obscure brand and seems to be of fine quality ...for a T-shirt. :p

    And don't let the size fool you; it fits as a large.

    Hi! I deal mostly with Trad / Ivy stuff, so I have some exp. with vintage BB. The yellow on white with block letters is just an indication of 1960's - 1970's wash 'n' wear type stuff. That looks 1960's, but that is only my opinion. When BB started adding more to the tags later like "Established 1818" with "Dry Clean Only" etc. it's just an indication of early 1970's or later before the labels turned blue. This is not definitive b/c BB has done just about everything. Hope that helps. -M-

    We're throwing away some mannequins at work. Maybe 5 male torsos, some fabric, some molded plastic. Will try to get some photos, just pay shipping.
