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.

    Might be a little too low contrast between the blackwatch and navy, but I'm not sure of a better alternative.

    The right shade of burgundy might be OK.

    Quick stop this morning,
    [​IMG]
    AE's in a really soft leather, haven't cleaned them up yet, but they are niiiiice. I think someone was looking for size 12 D's a couple hundred posts ago. Get at me, otherwise they're going on the bay.

    Finally, finally, finally, a nice umbrella. I've been looking high and low for one for awhile now. Vintage made in the USA by Schertz. Wooden handle, brass hardware, mint!
    [​IMG][​IMG]
    Couple albums. Stevie Wonder's Talking Book, sleeve's beat up but the record looks new, Queen's A Night At The Opera, I'm listening to this right now and Modern Jazz featuring Dizz, Bird, Max Roach, Mingus and some other heavy hitters. Also a couple more wooden hangers.
    [​IMG]
    And finally a siiiiiickkk vintage made in the USA Montgomery Ward leather biker jacket! I know, its a cheap brand, but the old made in the USA stuff isn't too bad, and this thing is RAW! Neck latch, side latches, quilted liner, puffy quilts on the shoulders and pockets, tits!

    ^^^ I have pair of vintage BB Blackwatch pants that I bought from Giuseppe Timore (An Affordable Wardrobe) at the first Top Shelf Flea that are some of my favorite winter pants. I've gone the navy blazer route with solid white and solid blue OCBDs and a black knit tie. I've also gone with a cream and navy blue horizontally striped long sleeve t-shirt (think French naval sweater, but lightweight) to the bar. Stripes and plaids? What?

    Noice, what about this bad boy with black watch pants, came in the mail yesterday from Ocooney. I know Tom James/Holland & Sherry doesn't get much love on here, but this thing is bad fucking ass.

    330CK, that J Press is awesome. Following up on that and the few toggle coats posted yesterday, I found what may be my coolest find yet last night in the women's coats section:

    Vintage Navy Brooks Brothers Made in England Wool Pea/Toggle Coat With Rad Blackwatch Lining -

    Yeah, that thing is awesome! I inquired about it as well, had nothing to offer him in a trade.

    If anyone is interested in NWT polo blackwatch pants I have some in a 38x32-34 can't remember length. Get at me for $20. Pics and real measurements for anyone interested. I think theyre sick, but 4' is just too much to tailor.

    I think you can work it like you would a pair of navy or dark green pants. Don't follow TJ's pattern-mixing advice below, though...

    Killer SC! Those thick, beveled horn buttons and girthy button shanks look unmistakingly Oxxford. I am clueless to the Tom James/Oxxford relationship but IIRC Oxxford made/makes their MTM jackets. :slayer:

    It's got Holland & Sherry tags as well as a Ventura tag and also says "Exclusively Tailored for Ben Buettell", and also has the same name on the content tag.

    Hit 2 stores right next to each other, pretty nice haul

    2x Vineyard Vines "Whale" Polos - eBay bound
    3x 36W Patagonia shorts
    36W Arc'teryx Adventus shorts
    40W Berle Indian Patch Madras shorts - most likely AAAC bound
    40W RL Purple Label Navy Blue cotton trousers - similar to this, except cotton (who is the maker with these tags?) - will need to get better measurements, since there is no size tag, but available on here
    TM Lewin tie (navy/light blue repp) - me
    Dormeuil tie - probably for me, seemed well made and cool belt as stripe design (sounds weird but cool)
