    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'm in Tokyo right now. I don't think I'd ever find something like this at home.

    You might not... But if you're like me you might find 5 like new Oxxford suits, a Polo DB blazer and a polo cashmere sweater at the B-ville Unique

    Pics to come, all Oxxfords are MTM "real man" sizes and available. The DB just needs arms lengthened then it's a perfect fit. Beige houndstooth, really cool. Not sure if my frame can pull the shoulders and wide lapels off though...

    This thread has been on fire as of late!

    Here are my finds from today. Didn't have much luck with the suits or the sportcoats but the shirt rack was on fire.

    First up, this hermes. I think it's real but I could use an authentication! It's a little beat up so I'm not sure if it was really worth picking up but I couldn't leave it behind. What do you guys think?

    Tag size 40 aka 15 3/4 neck
    P2P 22.5"
    Sleeve (shoulder seam to end of cuff) 25"

    Next up, this sweet brunello cucinelli stonewash denim button down :slayer:

    No Tag Size
    Collar-
    P2P - 21"
    Sleeve (shoulder seam to end of cuff) - 23"

    Lastly, this BB cashmere sweater. Color is a bit off in the photo's. Closer to an orangey pink than a bright orange as it looks in these photos.

    [​IMG]

    P2P - 22"
    Sleeve (Shoulder Seam to end of cuff) - 23"

    All of the above are available

    Some other shirts I left behind:
    Another hermes, ugly color, seemed a little bit up by the dry cleaners- tag size 40
    [​IMG]
    Steven Alan "store only" tag size l
    [​IMG]
    Brioni Roma- no tag size, should I have grabbed?

    Hey man, I am by no means an ebay power seller, or a #menswear bau5, but if you're gonna take the time to put stuff on a mannequin, maybe you should learn to tie a good knot and unbutton the bottom button. Just my $0.02.

    First up, the not available items, some are definitely not SF approved, but I either needed to fill a hole for the time being, or some other special purpose.

    And then stuck away, and I kid you not, the cheapest suit they had marked out of probably out of 50. Nice navy pinstripe

    yeah, should have got those unless the prices were steep except the wrecked hermes. you can proxy that brioni to me (if it's med or lg) let me know. I'd love it. You got some great finds.

    Looks good so far! I'd say use some darker polish on the toe to even out the darker spot from the scuffs and give it an antiqued look.

    Baltimore.

    Also, I never wear ties, and only know how to tie one tie knot, and just barely.

    I used to have a pair of boots like that. Are they steel toed?

    Also, I wish that Orvis tweed was a 52 EU... Nice!
