    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.

    I had a pair I resold that I was fairly certain were Cheaney with almost identical liner text. The current AS Bristol is a saddle shoe.

    Good catch, thanks.

    I meant to throw this up on the label thread, but I'll run it by you first. Are these AS?

    Man, you guys have been killing it lately! Haven't gotten around to posting for a couple of weeks, been really busy, and was a little under the weather last week, here are the highlights:

    (Sorry for some of the messed up coloring in the photos)

    Gucci by Zegna patch pocket black blazer, 54EU, weird thing is it has FRA under the "NAT" box on the tag, assume that means for France? All the
    ones Ive seen here & on the bay have USA, which would be expected....

    I'd throw them up there. I haven't seen enough AS. The soles fit. The text is close, but doesn't seem right compared to the few I've seen. AS would be my best guess, but it's only a guess.

    Great finds! I don't think I've seen Brioni Super 180's, and that Gucci is super recent!

    Aside from my upcoming mega haul confirmation today, I stopped by a thrift store:

    1 x PRL Italy Suit
    1 x PRL Italy Blazer
    1 x Chester Barrie Suit
    1 x Chester Barrie Blazer
    12 x Oxxford Blazers / Suits

    Mostly pretty old, but very cheap, so why not.

    If anyone is interested in pics, I could get this stuff out of my car.

    First and foremost, GIANT shoutout to Chris a.k.a. 330CK for a very generous deal on some Paul Smith Wholecuts. Awesome guy that I will have the pleasure of meeting one day...since he stomps my hometown area. If only I can make the time to get down there.

    Here are some recent finds. I legit have had little time to go out (made one good Saturday run) but my GF (bless her soul) made a couple runs (I think she is starting to enjoy it, AND she has a keen eye). The better of these finds are all her.

    First up, a non clothing related thrift. Roomba 535. I actually already have the same model. Battery was dead at the store. Swapped in my current battery and the thing works perfect. Ordered new battery on eBay, felt a hunch, and reset the roomba. The old battery just needed a quick jolt. Now I guess I will have a spare battery when the eBay one arrives. Thing needs a cleaning, but a nice deal.

    [​IMG]

    This find is definitely a question mark. Everything looks right, quality feels right, but the logo just looks a tad off to me.

    Old as hell, but still pretty damn cool IMO.
    I figure it is camel hair, but there is no content tag to be found.
