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.

    Nothing I would wear, but for less than the price of dinner-for-two at Chick fil A, I couldn't pass these up:

    Paraboot is quite under-rated. I've only had one pair and they were very nice. I'll second that those are well worth $66.

    Thanks. It's got the guy's name on a preprinted tag inside with some sort of account number. I'm thinking MTM.

    Just sweep them all into a box and ship them to me; I'll properly incinerate them so no one has to see them again. What sizes have you seen? Frye makes tons of shoes, some of which are kinda dated style wise, others are really spot on. They're all bench made, with the most recent lower-priced models made in Mexico.

    While not exactly men's clothing, I couldn't pass this up.

    A brand new, never installed, medium George Nelson bubble lamp, by Modernica. I paid more than I normally would at the Goodwill ($80), but considering they sell for $330 I'm pretty happy.

    This is dead-on. It's hard to fathom the stuff that shows up on this thread. I go to four stores a day, every day, and think I do pretty well, tending toward TNSIL, but jeepers: I've never found any RLPL and my first Brioni came two days ago. I celebrate must-iron BB OCBDs and bemoan the lack of market for quality top coats. If it fits and it's quality, I'll buy it no matter the label, old JAB being a case-in-point. It's impossible to flip, but back in the day, it was good stuff. I've been doing well lately, spending nearly $150 in the past four days, but nothing that's way over the top, enough to cover gas and the eight BB OCBD's I found for myself (yes!) and keep me going for another day in the thrift-store casinos where, sooner or later, I'll hit the mother lode, swear to god.

    If you've ever had the chance to sip the 23 year Pappy Van Winkle, no other American whiskey, bourbon or otherwise, can touch it. And I've had 3 dollar pours of George T. Stagg...not even the bragworthiness of this stands in the way of that 23 year gift from the gods.

    Authenticity Check Please. Dior Homme Shirt.......something just seems and feels off to me, fabric isn't that great. Only tags are the Dior tag and the tag pictured (front and back of that tag is shown).

    The Barbour is yours no prob. The Dunhill, I was going to use it in a trade with another here, but we worked on a deal without it being a possibly addition. For now the Dunhill is not required.

    As for the RLPL jacket, if WGP has something to replace the jacket, I have no issue with him handing the jacket to you if it fit you well and you liked it. From my perspective, I will keep my end of the bargain trade wise with WGP since my box for him is already packed and ready to go. If it works out you or WGP require an "I owe you in future", I could live with that. It is up to WGP though.

    I have seen that one by Dior in the past. Cant say for sure, but tag looks authentic.
