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.

    Question to those at the forum. Are old Ermenegildo Zegna suits (super 120-150s) worth a flip on ebay?

    HSM used to (or maybe still do) make Christian Dior licensed tailored clothing (outerwear, suits, and sportcoats). I don't know how much CD was involved in the design if at all, I think they just lent out their name.

    Sure...I'm not seeing any old (5-10 years old) zegna suits that actually have bids on them.

    not a thrift brag but a discount brag... I took some spoo profit money and got some things that have been on my list, fairisle sweater, cutaway collar white shirt, tartan shirt, some boots other than my docs, the best part is though stacking a BUNCH of discounts I got the total price for all 4 to around 50 dollars which is sinfully expensive for thrift but when origionally they would have cost upwards of 300 how could I not especially when lands end is a good value anyway

    If they're 40-42L and you want to let them go here, that's my size so I say kop.

    If you're looking to flip on eBay, go do your own homework.

    Those are pretty old, and they look like they might be on a different last than the Van last the current LHS is on? Van toe is more rounded, less pointy. Anyone know what last those are and when the switch happened?

    Glad to hear you finally found one! If I recall correctly you were on the hunt for awhile and commented on mine.

    That is true for woven silk ties...not true for knits (which, this shittastic fake could arguably be, assuming lots of things).

    That said, I definitely agree, as per my post earlier. Totally fake for a million other reasons.

    ^^ I think you mean twill instead of woven and woven instead of knit.
