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.

    Found these two items last night at a local thrift/cosignment store. Hugo Boss Blazer and Etro shirt. Both in great condition. Keepers for me...Shirt has a strange cloverleaf pattern but will probably work with a rocker look. I am an ex professional musician. Total Cost $60. Local Goodwills had nothing...Same store had a $1500 Paul Smith Suit with tags still on it for $300 but it was a regular and I am a short. Wanted that suit..

    Happy Thanksgiving everyone. Out of a lot of things I am thankful for (wonderful wife and family, good health, etc), I'm very thankful for this amazing community of like-minded individuals to help remind me I'm not alone in this crazy hobby that is thrifting.

    Today will be a good day. From my early morning stop...

    The oxxford on the far left is a navy suit. The Brioni has a ticket pocket, and the most beautiful buttons I have ever seen (and I think my tailor will be able to work with it, so probably unavailable). Will post more pics later when I get home - hopefully the rest of the day is just as fruitful.

    Damn, man. You've stepped up your game considerably in a short amount of time.

    If you're not taking everything directly to ebay, and if anything's in a 38-39 S, let me know.

    Hope everyone had a good thanksgiving. I was cooking in the morning and in a food coma most of the afternoon. Trying to decide how insane the black friday sale at Savers will be and if it's worth going.

    Looking for help.
    Out of town hitting my old thrifts pretty hard today. Came across a few ties with a strange tag. It's a little man standing in front of a horse and buggy. Being from pa, I naturally assume they are some sort of Amish brand. Not sure why they would say France though. Should I kop? $2 a piece seems kinda high.

    Are they all from the same donor? That's pretty sick, man.
