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.

    Made by Pietrafesa, which has been gone for probably 15 years. Also did MTM and such I think for Brooks and I think some OTR for JAB. I have quite a few in my closet and all have held up great.

    I went into a local craft store that's goin out of business (at that point, everything was 60%off). They had a sizeable rack full of replacement buttons. I recall seeing a ton of shell/mop buttons, but thought nothing of it. Might go back to see if they're still there/open. Any particular sizes/quantities that you guys might want? If the price is right, I may grab everything that could be of use.

    Noted, thanks.

    Thanks, I'm really surprised they are that old. The styling is a lot more modern then some 8-10 yr old suits I've found. However, I just did the pinch test and they failed, but I can't say I really care.

    Ball games rained out yesterday (very rare for AZ) picked up a couple things, all the talk of Bobby Jones made in Italy golf polos, how about a Ralph Lauren made in Itlay golf collection, marked large but measures medium:

    New WTB Guys.

    Looking for a Dark Charcoal suit with some awesome detail, construction and fabric. Looking for flat front pants and more slim-cut than a not-so-slim cut. 3 Piece would be even better and something like peak lapels or ticket pockets etc. would be double bonus. I like the Corneliani that was posted over @ the B&S but want to see if something other than a nailhead is lurking around these parts. Cheers!

    Yesterday I picked up three suits, one smoking, one tailcoat, four pair of chinos and a black leather belt. I payed $928 for the whole shebang, when the original retail price was $4430. As a student on a very restrained economy I am extremely pleased!

    You just a dropped nearly a grand on completely superfluous items like a smoking jacket.

    We must have different ideas of what "restrained economy" means.

    This is hardcore! Probably smells like sweat, beer and drugs though!

    Yeah... and his school days must be much different from mine. Actually, who the hell has a tailcoat, no matter what age?

    Got by the drug sniffing K-9 at checkout ok! But when the cashier chimed out "DUDE, awesome band" the dog did look over.

    Some more recent/not-so-recent finds. All available.

    Vintage Gordon of Philadelphia Seersucker Suit. No wear on this. Flat front pants. Awesome suit that I kopped for myself. But I've had it a year and I haven't thought to worn it once, so I hope it can find itys way to someone who will use it. Measures out to about a 40R.

    Gitman Bros madras shirt. Awesome colors. Tagged as a L.

    Hickey Freeman linen blend windowpane sportscoat. Tagged 46R. Front pockets still basted shut, this is possibly unworn. From the LTD line.

    Polo 100% linen camp shirt. Cool shirt, tons of pockets and buttons. Tagged XL

    last but not least, Florsheim Imperial buckle ankle boots. Stellar condition, very little signs of wear. Original soles. Tagged 8.5D. I dearly wish these fit.
