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.

    Haha, yeah. There are some decent shops right on the boarder that I don't get to very often. Yeah, sounds like it's guiding you right into the hipster district. :laugh:

    Saw a Rag & Bone Hand Tailored sportcoat at Nordstrom Rack yesterday. Gray flannel, made by Martin Greenfield. Passed because it was around $100. Is that sort of thing desirable?

    Hit up the good Marshall's that I know of in OC. They had 2 of those tweed PRL coats that were posted here the other day, I think they were 46R and 44L. Thoughts raced through my head of getting both and Voltron-ing them into something that'd fit me. Then I snapped out of it (must find some good big guy tweed this fall). 0 panther socks to be had there. They did, however, have some Billy Reid ties for $29 a piece, one of which is still calling my name... Thrifts have been shitty lately, but that's ok, I need to sell everything here anyway.

    Also excuse the shit picture but...Is this too busy? (I know, I know, wear a blue solid, but this Zegna is nice!) Wish the V wasn't so deep.

    Also... Found this great rotating napkin/book/dvd holder. Proxy anyone? [​IMG]

    Thats super cool about the buttons showing the finger print... I think I might have to get some denim from them, and denim pockets too... I don't even know if I've seen that before.

    Why couldn't you be really skinny, or short, or something so you didnt fit them :p

    From what I could find, they retail about $280. Definitely worth the bread, these things are insanely well made. They have a phone # listed as well as their shop address if you Google the name. Maybe you can call them and ask some questions about fits and stuff.

    almost every suit made in the 50's is going to be unvented, interestingly enough
    was definitely in style at that time

    Yeah, I was poking fun at the SF groupthink regarding unvented suits.

    Shout out to ATLJon for the USMA/West Point wool hoodie. Needs some slimming, but it's awesome.

    Unvented jackets look quite good on men who are in good shape.
