1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    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.

    you sir are the man! The only other lb sartoriale I found had no cell phone pocket. the buttons will never be functional,, but we've got some attolini on our hands boys! Actual fabric content looks hand written which can't be bad. Pic soon

    Yep...you should see how mad my wife gets. But she told me last night she is broke for the next week or two....so I guess she will be my best friend until I give her an allowance. I think I would like some steak tonight!

    Not expensive if intact. What color? I'm interested if it is a color I don't have and good shape.

    If you combine the hours you spend, effort you put in, including light boxes etc, That comes to like 20 bucks per hour. No lawyers will leave their jobs :)
    Delete that damn post please. Competition with already existing purveyors of vintage fine men's clothing is bad enough.
    (Couldn't call a pal flipper :embar: )

    On unrelated news found a 50ies-60ies vintage USA made shearling coat. A beaut. From Gloucester, Mass and called a Mighty Mac.

    I dunno... From hearing Wes's routes to knowing how long it takes to photograph, measure, list, answer questions, box, ship, etc. I bet he's putting in 40+ hours a week on his hobby. Me? I'm much lazier than that. [​IMG]

    Bingo! I probably average 50 hours a week outside of the time I screw around here while at work. Plus I travel about 450-500 miles per week visiting thrift stores in the area. Motivated entirely by the high interest rates on my student loans. I intend to pay off the remaining 18 years worth of payments in the next 12-16 months.

    Love that Frank's RedHot sauce ad next to the Copeg ad. Had no clue it was that old.

    Here is the tag from the LB Sartoriale
    [​IMG]
    It looks very close to the Attolini in the labels thread, but slightly different, does this connote age? Also, the content is clearly hand written, any significance to this? IT says 55% Wo 10% Se 20% B.Wk 15% Kwm. Im assuming this is 55% wool, 10% silk, 15% cashmere? and wtf would 20% B.wk be? Given feel im thinking linen, but I have no idea.

    That blackwatch is badass! I've been pining for one, possibly with mop buttons for a bit of pop.

    Thanks! It's one of two that I own and I get more use out of them than I would have expected. I don't mind the buttons that I have on them now, but I considered putting the same buttons that I have on my navy cashmere odd jacket...smoked MOP. I like the look for fall/winter jackets.

    :cheers: That's most definitely Attolini :slayer: however I don't know how to tell the age and the hand written stuff is pretty cool. I think that is probably mid-2000s based on this specific Attolini tag. I have also seen Attolini for Sartorio tags (the small, wide rectangular tag) on LB Sartoriale jackets too but I am not sure on the timeline for these tags.

    I have had a couple of the Attolini made LB Sartoriales and the nice thing is they don't show their age. They're always pretty traditional in cut and button stance, etc. I have no idea what that fabric composition is, but I think you're pretty close. Nice score.
