    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.

    Love peacoats. Like, Actual Vintage Navy ones. Kicking ass, eazyE.

    Hey just checking in. In trying to track down a couple other SF palz via PM it occurs to me I should jump in here.

    --I made it through Sandy fine. Lucky me. Lost power a bit but many many more people had it worse (good vibes, prayers, etc to you all)
    --I have been watching *various* thrift threads but not posting because hell, I haven't had any super finds, just pretty damned good lately
    --Mothereffing Ron Chereskin's been haunting me like a zombie. Must be Halloween. HIm and effing Club Room. Ugh.
    --work's been intense

    Anyway, I also wanted to say this Secret Santa shite is BRILLIANT. Love it. I am in, even though I am a back channel type of dude the last little while...which sounds kinda kinky when I think about it.

    ...see you all on the circuit.

    ^ Nah, just a spotted knit tie. Dots look too uniform to be handsewn, but still awesome.

    Oh, those dots are hand sewn, baby, I can feel it.

    (No, really. They're all raised-up and awesome looking.)

    Thanks for the tip... and thanks for the info, Spoo. I'll find good Versace yet!

    Hahaha, I had no idea who Rorschach was and at first thought it was a member's username. Wikipedia to the rescue and you're right!



    Great look! That pea coat fits you really well and I wish the one I found would have fit me as well as yours does.

    I think I'm going to start a campaign called "rich guys hit the gym", sick of finding nice pieces in monster sizes.

    School gave me a second day off for the hurricane despite the weather being absolutely fine. So obviously I went thrifting. Happened upon two Orvis Vests. These seem to do well on eBay. Nonetheless, they are available.

    Hunting/Fishing Outerwear Vest, Size L:

    Awesome Corduroy Collar Lining:

    Hidden Pocket along zipper:

    Plaid and Quilted lining:

    Pleated back, Snap waist adjustment and two back pockets:
    [​IMG]
    Measurements:
    P2P: 23"
    Shoulder 17.5"
    Length from Bottom of Collar 28"

    Waistcoat (?) In a tweed-like wool twill, size M:

    Right side pocket is a zip pocket. Well hidden:

    Belted sides for adjustment:
    [​IMG]
    Measurements:
    P2P 21"
    Shoulder 16"
    Length BOC 23.5"

    Saw and left behind this V2 by Versace. Ebay seems to suggest only the loud shirts sell. This was pretty plain. purple stripes, point collar, hidden placket. Good Pass?

    A few guys here have PMed me with pictures of some of their secret santa gifts and I have to say that there are going to be some happy people. Everyone has been really generous with their gifts and pretty creative as well. I've received 7-8 questions people would like me to ask their secret santa and have forwarded them on to the correct people. I haven't kept track of who responds, but I will send your response if/when I get it. If you haven't gotten a response, let me know and I can send out reminders to people.

    Maybe that's the problem - they are, and getting rid of their old too-large clothing. You need to start a campaign, "Skinny guys spend money."

    Definitely Vineyard Vines. I've seen Vineyard Vines Aflac ties on the 'Bay before.

    1. Giogio Armani (black background white lettering)
    2. Giorgio Armani (White background black lettering)
    3. Armani Collezioni
    4. Emporio Armani
    5. Armani Jeans

    There are some other lines from a while ago, i.e. Prive, Classico etc and both I believe are higher than what is considered black label.

    The one you got is somewhere between Collezioni and black label, Armani white label as I call it. Quality so so and I have not seen anything from this line that was markedly superior to Collezioni.

    A/X is not an Armani brand hence why I missed it.

    a/x i thought was, collezioni def used to be licensed not sure now, armani has not been relevant for over 10 years now, stupendous fall from grace, emporio armani used to be great shit (til spoo came an ruined it lol),there also used to be a giorgio armani classico line and the black label used have the milan address on it like a burgunvo or something like that. It is made by vestimenta anyway quality, but nothing spectacular

    Haha, I was going to post a picture, thinking there might be a small culture barrier. Thank you, internet! Also, totally meant it as a compliment. :slayer:

    -Klobber, I think you may be a bit mistaken. The white label without Collezioni, is just OLD collezioni. Whoever asked, good pass.
    -The vicuna.... I was suuuuuuper disappointed. My friend told me about it, so i literally skipped class and drove to the SA to check it out with him, most definitely NOT vicuna. But FYI there is a brand out of Peru/Ecquador or someshit that is literally called Vicuna... has a pic of the animal and everything. They make Acrylic/wool blankets and shit...
    -Will/Barrel bro.... those pants are too long as you stated, but seriously son, plaid on plaid?!?! No waaaaaaaay, ever. The SC is cool, as are the pants, but both should be worn with basic solids. Think navy blazer white shirt. I'd go blue shirt if i were feeling particularly adventurous lol,
    -Towers, you sir, are a badass. Offering Kiton, even old kiton, to the thread is awesome, and im sure will be remembered by all, even if it doesn't go to one of us.
    -Handers and Eazy, you guys are looking FLYYYYYYYYY. FRESH TO DEATH, what have you. I wish i'd had my camera, I went to the track to see our horse run in OKC, and decided nothing says thoroughbred horse owner like peak lapel DB brioni suit in solid charcoal, with blue white striped contrast RIcci shirt, and a much larger striped blue/silder vtg BB makers tie.

    Very cool man! Not expert on material/weaves by any means (at least not yet) but im gonna say the material on this sweet vest looks like Whipcord.
    I had a pair of Filson Whipcord trousers and they looks just like that.
    Anyone else wanna chime in?

    Checking in from ct. Expect to be without power for well more than a week. Next week's auctions should be fun and interesting. Sorry to all the peeps that I owe pms or shipments.
    I'm most worried about Brianpore. South Jerz got hit pretty hard.

    Uh, I pass on Cerruti all the time. Am I missing something?
