    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.

    Nevermind the bad pics, no digital camera right now other than on cell phone.

    Any idea on this brand Bernard Zins? Why does the price tag say $495?

    Pants are fully lined, and made of cashmere / wool blend.

    Kopped two pairs though, NWT SZ 40, but cost me $35 per pair. Hope I did not make a horrible mistake.

    A couple ties... Another Madras for my collection. Anyone heard of "Pen West, a division of Pendleton"? I've seen a lot of Pendleton, but not this one.

    And a first for me... Hermes! Found a spot on it when I got it home.. Do you guys usually get them dry cleaned or try to spot clean yourself?

    Also picked up these 3 standard (2 pleats) Zanellas... 2 are marked 36 and one marked 34, but all measure out the same to about 36.5" waist. 2 are 32" inseam and the other is 33", all with a 1.5" pleat. Available and cheap if someone wants all 3.

    Also picked up a pair of NWOT Bonobos - These things are great and remind me of the Kiton pants I passed up at Marshalls. Should make for great golf pants (side note: stop putting cuffs on flat fronts >,<) Jury on these?

    I picked up a jacket for my brother a few months ago that had this label. It's pretty nice, actually. That's about all I know of it, tho.

    I love my Bonobos. The cut is the best thing about them. They fit really well and are very flattering. I'll take those off your hands if they're available [​IMG]

    I'd brag about my finds but I'm a few beers in tonight and frankly all the stuff is still sitting in my car. Long story short...grensons, flat front Zanellas, Incotex, Etro & broini shirts and Oxford and ez sport coats. Beer and SF is a dangerous thing. Pray for me to keep out of he B&S.

    CALLING ALL WEEKEND WARRIORS!!

    Are you an accountant that needs an escape? Are you a doctor that feels unappreciated and needs an outlet to feel like a badass?

    Have you been unsatisfied with your motorcycle gear? Are you tired of wearing the same generic Harley pants?

    Maybe you just want your pants to match your kicks.

    Are you a size 33x30ish?

    This is your chance to UPGRADE TO UNICORNS

    Full-body pic of today's sportcoat find, which is currently at the cleaners. No luck scouring the Internet for clues as to the maker, so it will remain a mystery.

    Now I just have to figure out what to wear with this.

    Looks fake to me. Never seen that label on a tie. Font looks off and that fabric content tag is way off.
