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 exciting, but I found and bought an old peanut butter jar from the late 40's.

    I never have good luck thrifting, but found some gems, in an otherwise barren wasteland, A.K.A. Orlando, FL.

    I'm pretty exited about my first Kiton & Charvet ties, so that i can now see what all the fuss is about.

    The Charvet makes a particularly nice knot, and the Kiton is extremely soft. I have never felt a tie this delicate, and it seems to be a six fold, is that the standard for Kiton?

    Both acquired for less than 25% retail, so i feel like i did well. :slayer:

    Any ideas on these ties? Of course, someone took the tags off.

    The RN number on the first is Ralph Lauren — is this just a straight-up PRL that's very nice? And is the other one just a made-in-Germany PRL?

    This was a weird one. A seven-fold (I think), self-tipped tie with a possibly hand-stitched center stitch on the back. But there is not a single indication of the brand. Only tag is the "100% Seta/Soie/Silk Made in Italy" think. Here's a pic -- color isn't represented well. I'll take better at some point. Advice sought! :D

    Couple interesting things I found that I rarely see here in DSM.

    Belvest DB Suit. Soft as hell. ~38-40R

    I seem to remember a mall store from the good (bad) ol' days of men's fashion from the early / mid 90's called "Structure." Is that the store you're thinking of?

    Thanks for the input, or rather thanks for nothing! A joke, of course. This thread moves so quickly that it's very easy to miss things.

    I will roam the pants sections and perhaps even try to bribe a GW worker to check in the back. It's an insanely nice jacket, and I bet the pants are equally as wonderful.
