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.

    That spread looks fantastic HH.

    It looks like the new official snack of the thrift thread is wine and cheese.

    Next we will see someone post a picture of a box of Franzia with some Kraft singles asking if they did well. Followed by a meme with the words; "That is not the wine and cheese you're looking for."

    Anyone know anything about 1970s Gucci?
    Saw a tie this morning that was Made in France with some sort of serial number like XXX-XX-XX-1973
    It was burgundy with grey turtles the size of dimes on it. It was also mega wide.
    My first thought was that the pattern's interesting and that there's surely enough material there to make a bow tie.

    I think I'll go embarrass myself with Goose.

    Maverick, Top Gun

    Really though, goose bacon for the win.






    My wife knows that I have quite the affinity for both cheese and various red wines. The best was the one at the top...it's a British cranberry cheese. It was unreal.

    I got this Gorsart for stupid cheap, by NYC thrift prices, that is. Other than being too short (it's a 38S while I wear 38R/L), it fits better than anything I have put on. Screw it, I'm going with it.

    I'm not sure how they made it exactly, but if was good as hell. On the subject of ice cream, there is a place here that serves Jamison soft serve....yummmmmmmm.....the best of both worlds. :D

    Picked up a Harris tweed overcoat. Fit is perfect and super warm, which is great because I'll be waiting in line for 4-5 days to get my daughter into the school of our choice, and temperatures are expected to be close to freezing at night. Never seen a label like this one though, any info?

    Found a similar Bullock & Jones luxury baseball jacket today but passed because it had some damage on the leather on the sleeves. Didn't know that they sold for so much retail. 90/10 wool/cashmere with super soft leather sleeves.
