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.

    Also picked this guy up...1st Storm System, never seen the NM label before so guessing it is a couple of years old. Tiny hole on very bottom back by the vent.

    Looks like a Martin Greenfield tag to me, right?

    That is sick. I don't think it's Greenfield though. I think all of the Martin Greenfield for BB has a tiny "MG" on the tag, like this:

    Still, awesome trench.

    I come to you dudes tonight as a broken man; a man in mourning.

    Today, I rocked my new fave suit: J Press navy tight chalk stripe. Fist time I wore it. Fit me like a glove off the hanger, and looked indescribably baller. Seriously, it was f-cking awesome. On the way home, after an epic 2.5 hour, 20 mile drive home in the snow, in which I managed several Neo-esque escapes from catastrophe, I step out of my car onto my driveway and take a digger. Onto my knee. Ripping my f-king suit trou.

    BITCH!!

    [​IMG]

    (BTW, that's a penny for scale and to make the damage moar visible)

    So I ask you: is this the kind of damage that can be rewoven for less than $100? If so, anyone got names in the Connecticut / NYC (have cash, will travel) area for reasonable reweaving?

    And assuming not to any of the above, can a brother get a moment of silence?

    Edit: MAINY: LOVE that BB tweed and the Hermes are actually wearable. Also, my Alden shell-dar must be off, because I wouldn't have picked those based on the micro creasing. Makes me think I've actually handled shell and not known.....

    Picked up an older Brooks Brothers tweed today - any idea of the age based on the tag?

    That EB quilted down jacket is some serious shit. Back in the day, EB had the best down on the planet.

    Passed on about a dozen motorcycle protection jackets and vintage bomber jackets. I don't know leather and they wanted 50-200 per jacket. Was going to kop the cool Cooper jacket though.
