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.

    Cheers,

    Hey Guys!


    I just wanted to let those of you who have consigned stuff with me that I was (and still am) in Colombia backpacking with a friend of mine when PutThisOn featured a number of my Etsy items on one of last week´s Ebay Roundups. A number of them sold and will be going out when I get back this Thursday or Friday.

    I´ve tried to contact most of you via PM from Taganga, Colombia to give you a timeframe (the internet is spotty sometimes). Please PM me if you have any further questions in the meantime!

    Sorry for the off-topic thread post, but I just wanted to make sure that I got everyone.

    Thanks!
    -M-

    Damn... Take a weekend off and it takes me a day and a half to catch up. Some awesome finds in here! I found some okay stuff at my one stop over the weekend. I'll try to put up some pics tonight.

    This just in....I think someone might possibly be receiving their Secret Santa package today. Who could it be??? Whoever you are, please feel free to open it when it arrives, and share. I can't take this suspense any more. I have no problem waiting to open gifts from others, but I hate waiting for someone to receive a gift from me.

    Considering they're a $500 reproduction of $20 bundeswehr sneakers, I don't think it's the shoes that are being abused.

    Also, I don't want my dislike of those shoes to distract from how awesome that CdGS shirt is.

    Sick finds as usual Xenos... I swear you find large quantities of excellent stuff. I suppose that's just Los Angeles where the streets are paved with finely tailored suits.

    I'll check, but it was maybe two weeks ago. I forgot about it, then came across the pics on my phone and figured I'd post it. I think it was in the $40 range.

    And a few more items:

    Zegna blue wool suit; double-vented; size 46R(US)

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Caruso for Barneys wool/linen SC; double-vented; surgeon's cuffs; size 42L

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]


    And I'm assuming all the below are SCs and not orphans as the details, e.g., patch pockets lend themselves more to the former than the latter. Also, scoured the store for pants and none were to be found.

    Borrelli navy SC; double-vented; surgeon's cuffs; size 40R

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Kiton navy SC; double-vented; surgeon's cuffs; size 40R

    (What kind of weave is this?)

    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Cesare Attolini wool/cashmere navy SC; double-vented; surgeon's cuffs; size 40R
