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.

    True!

    Not planning on wearing...not my taste. These are more my style:

    Just really been enjoying this thread and this was the closest that I have to "thrifted" stuff...will contribute properly after my first thrift run (assuming I find something.)

    I will either donate or hold for another 20 years until they come back into style [​IMG]

    Definitely my best weekend ever. After yesterdays haul, today I picked up a vintage Brooks Brothers suit and sportcoat, a Zegna 15milmil15 suit, 2 recent Zegna sportcoats, and an Attolini sportcoat. Not quite thrift pricing, but I'll do OK. Left behind a couple of Zegnas that were too pricey and 3 or 4 Oxxford bespoke sportcoat/odd trouser combos that were huge. Oh, and two other Attolini pieces (summer suit and SC) that had moth damage. I was crushed about those.

    :rotflmao: :crackup:


    Score on the Attolini. That is a grail label for me, still yet to find one. How bad was the moth damage? On such a sought after maker, I'm sure even minor moth damage wouldn't cause them to be a complete write-off.

    They are, I would rock these if they were my size. Unfortunately they are way too big (I'm a 10.5).
    No size markings, but they measure 12.5" in length. So for the larger dandy.

    This time I actually found some stuff in my size, if ok-mediocre. Nothing spectacular, but a few items to share (according to my current thrifting standards, anyway). Oh, and viz a viz a previous discussion, what is available is available for trade or at-cost+shipping.

    HF pants. Unavailable.

    I saw this and thought, "Ohh... that's unfortunate." But I tried it on and it fit! Going to uncuff and lower the hem. Fits perfectly though the seat, crotch, and thigh. Yay for being shaped like an athletically built boy!​

    AE Clayton 9D, great shape. Available.

    BB Makers puppytooth woolen tie (available) and Robert Talbott paisley tie (unavailable)

    Unnamed brown plaid vest w/ blue overcheck. Unavailable
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]Marked 39R but fits like 36R, fits beautifully. Nothing spectacular; probably only sharing this because it actually fits so well. Have to do a thrift fit pic at some point.

    Also picked up:
    • old Bostonian Wingtip tassle loafers, black 9D (fit like a glove)
    • cloth belt made of silk (?), looks like a blue & green rep tie but is a belt. Pretty cool with my cerulean pants.
    Passes:
    • Alan Flusser shirt XL, nice brown and taupe stripes (slight mustard stain on cuff, might or might not come out. can go back for it if someone wants to risk it, really nice cloth.)
    • Gitman shirt 16.5, a bit worn
    • Norton & Sons 44, dated orphan
    • Tessori (?) 3-button orphan, EU 48R. Fit beautifully like a slim 38, immaculate S100's with nice hand and great bemberg lining, but was brown pinstripe and with dated lapels. Thinking about going back to pick it up in the hope of finding matching pants, but I'm pretty sure that's not going to happen and who want's a 3-button pinstripe orphan? (No one.) [Edit: It was Truzzi, not Tessori, though I still stand by my decision. Which I guess is why I couldn't remember...]

    These are a different shape than the Bostonians, which I have a hard time getting on but fit well once on (I'm truly a low-volume 10B, so sometimes in loafers a 9D is better if the ball of the foot is in the right place). The toebox on these AE is fairly narrow and tapered, whereas it has a rather large mouth and wide space for the heel. Also, it's really not my style.

    That's the Reichsadler. I saw a camera exactly like this at a flea market in Budapest. I come across militaria at every flea market I visit and most of it is legitimate stuff. However, I came across tables full of fake German and Japanese military items in Budapest. This camera was among the stuff, so I left it behind. I found out later that they're mostly Russian cameras from the same time period, basically Soviet Leica knock-offs. They take these and add special things to them to make them seem more rare.

    Anyone could have fallen for it and sometimes it's worth the risk bringing home something like that in the hopes of it being real. I'm sure most of us at some point have thrown money at something that turned out to be fake/worthless, so don't feel too bad!

    A couple of these look like they may work well as bow ties. Some patterns flop as neck ties but really shine as a bow. Also, if you feel a little sentimental about it (I would), it would be nice to get a couple converted and get some use rather than just hang on to them just because.

    Wow, nice. You're right, those are incredibly old I'd say. When you receive them, would you mind posting some better pictures? Based on the font alone and the POLO BY RALPH LAUREN, I'd say you're looking at early '70s to early '80s. Congrats!
