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.

    but seriously, i think we have a good chance to make it to the eastern conference finals. miami will need to face some resistance, maybe a D-Wade injury, and we could make another run at Banner 18....

    with that, back to your regularly scheduled programming

    Sid Mashburn button down. It feels amazing. Fat MOP buttons. Best of all, it fits PERFECTLY.

    can anyone id this tag? jacket was made for zanella.

    heel/label thread suggests isaia or lubiam, but i'm not sold. just wondering if anyone here knew.

    also, do ferragamo ties always have the name on the blade? i recently found one, no name on blade, rougher silk fabric [unlike the fragile silk they usually use for their prints]. that said, the label, stitching, content tag, etc is exactly the same as the legit ferragamos i own.

    I believe Mastai Ferretti is made at the same factory as Truzzi.

    Hit a bit of a thrifting mystery today...

    Going through the racks, I found a few Sulka shirts monogrammed JB, with dry cleaning tags for a customer named James Bond.

    Is there a random obscenely rich person named James Bond, or did James Bond wear Sulka shirts in past films?

    edit: Apparently Sulka did Brosnan's shirts for GoldenEye. Now I need to find his measurements...

    You've GOT to be shitting me. Not content thrifting the likes of Kiton and Brioni with regularity, DM7 has taken to thrifting the wares of mothafuckin' James Bond.

    Los Angeles...mecca...etc.

    Never heard the term bunny boots used. We used to call the black ones mickey (mouse) boots.


    Told y'all...... :D



    Found a couple items today:

    - Mint charcoal pinstripe Hickey Freeman Collection suit. 44 L.
    - Interesting pair of suede Steger Muckluks. Bought them because they were pretty cool looking and well made. Looks like they bring in decent monies on the bay. US men's 9.

    would it be impossible for someone to use that as a surname?
    wouldn't the dry cleaning tags have the initials of the studio or stylist on set?
