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.

    Found a few great things today. Here is an excerpt. Don't have time to take pics of everything tonight.

    Don't know much about this. Fabric feels great--could be cashmere. It's fully-canvassed. No content tag, only a US union-made tag. Has a very coo lining and giant MOP buttons.

    Also don't know much about this. Only tag says made in England. All machine stitching. First thing that comes to mind is a line of cashmere English made stuff for Orvis I've come across.

    Anybody a huge fan of Ahmad Rashad? They wanted about $50 a piece for a suit and sport coat of his, so I left it.

    I went thrifting again the other day and I'm surprised the La Jolla area doesn't have anything good in the thrift stores. I saw one or two Facconable and Brooks Brother's shirt, but nothing awesome.

    Anyone know anything about Luigi Bianchi Matova? Picked up a silk/wool SC of his, and it is the TRUTH! The finish is incredible, that thing fucking glows. Pics after work.

    LBM, makers of LBM 1911... Part of Lubiam. Very good Italian maker. I've seen them called the "poor man's Boglioli". Nice find.

    :fistbump: Thanks for sending along the Lewin linen, and for saving me the shipping. Sadly, it's too small, and thus available.

    Huge +1, which Nat already took care of, but I think these are fantastic trousers. I have a pair in a dark olive green. I found two pairs, and traded one. Been on the lookout ever since.

    As for me: We're getting ever closer to closing on our house. That means cash flow is going to be a major-ass issue over the next couple of months, so thrifting/buying is out. Still willing to trade for some of the stuff I have, but I'm eventually going to need to streamline and raise some capital, so I may need to have a big Ebay bonfire. And I will probably still lurk here, but with no finds to post.

    If you do it right, thrifting IS a cashflow...

    What size in the Lewin linen?

    Long term: Yes. Short term: It requires outlay (esp. 'round here). We will literally be paycheck to paycheck for a while. Not worth the risk.

    Tagged 38S. Measures closer to a 40 or 41:
    pit: 21
    shoulder: 17.5
    Length: 30
    Arm: 24.5

    It's really nice. Linen or linen blend (no material tag). Herringbone weave, 1/4 lined, dual vent. REALLY wish it fit.

    I just started... accidentally made a typo in my listing of a lacoste polo and called it lactoste. Hopefully not scaring off would-be buyers :brick:

    ^^^ I did something like this selling "Florshiem" V Cleats once. Even if the brand name was correct under the header information, I still felt stupid about misspelling something I was trying to sell.
