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.

    Dang, that sucks, Klobber. It will eventually come to that around here too. I am seeing more and more volume flippers. Carts piled high with anything that holds any value at all. I've noticed this too; the menswear section has like 8 people (3/4 of them being women) frantically flipping through the racks and the women's section has a few older ladies scattered about slowly examining each piece of clothing they pick out. It's getting ridiculous....

    Here are some pics of my Nudie Grim Tim. I'd have to guess that your are fake, you can see the selvedge seam is actually folded over and sewn. The other pic pf the stitching shows the yellow thread "trailing off" upward which is a "signature stitching" on all Nudies. Sorry brother.

    Do you know if they accept shipping and send them back after they are done?

    You can ship to them, at least according to reviews on Yelp. This was what I planned on doing when I get around to reweaving a few things I need done.

    EDIT: Haha, jinx...what JackFlash said.

    Hello,

    Just thought i would post two of my recent finds.

    Nothing much, but pretty happy with them. And they were a steal at 3$ each.
    It's pretty hard to find the same quality-stuff here in scandinavia, and its a bit more expensive.

    Maybe Albert Hal is hugging all the good stuff :)

    +2 Very good work. I actually took the jacket I found in my first post here (a Kiton blazer) and they fixed it right up.

    Expect to pay $20-30 per hole. That sounded pretty gross after I wrote it.

    Not much at the one store I had time to check out today but I picked up these Gap 1969 selvedge jeans in size 29x30. Available if anyone is interested as they are far too small for me.

    Actual measurements are:
    Waist - 15.75
    Rise - 9
    Inseam - 31

    Thats funny. He sent me some photos and he had a bunch of pairs. He must have gotten a shipment of them in and is trying to pawn them off.

    Actually on viewing the photos just now the pocket stitching on them look kinda off too. Otherwise it looks like someone went to a lot of trouble to make a bunch of fake Nudies. Is there really that much of a demand for them?

    Only one grab today and it's available.

    Hugo Boss Baldessarini made in Italy Cashmere sport coat, size 44L. Made in Italy. Seems almost NWOT with pockets basted and extra buttons in the inside pocket. Anyone know anything about this line?

    Got the Brioni back from the dry cleaners and the pit stains didn't really change. Anyone ever have a jacket relined? How much does that run? Still deciding, it's a perfect fit in some places but I fear a hair short in the sleeves.
