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,

    Yeah, if you have an even more quiet tie, like a navy pin dot, that would be better.

    Thanks for the input. Here are a couple other options.

    Also, couple finds from this weekend.

    Gianfranco Ferre mainline blue checked blazer, made by Cantarelli. Unvented unfortunately.

    NWOT Thom Brown sleeveless button-down. Think I'll hold off putting this on the bay until spring.

    I remember that Patagonia pattern. Late 90s... I worked at REI from 95 to '97. It'll see if condition is good.

    I always have an itch to open something on the 24th, so this will probably be it.

    Syms.

    If no one else has asked, I'll put some dibs on these. PM to follow.



    Bummer. I'll keep an eye out but mostly I see the basic black/bronze corner pharmacy variety.



    This.


    Meanwhile, odd that I've never noticed Cooper flight wear here before and the day I find one, there's a leather A-2 posted a couple of hours back!

    Here's what I found. I bought it for my son in law but he wears his denim below his belly and it felt too short to him. I told him to pull his pants up to his waist but ...youth! Whatcha gonna do? It fit him in the shoulders and looked good around his considerable belly but it is definitely waist length.

    Available but plan on wearing a cool belt because it will be visible from time to time.

    Also, Cooper has apparently been replaced as the supplier to the USAF for these by a company called Cockpit.

    Here's a link to them.

    All Cotton 100 Mission A2 Flight Jacket
    $126

    Oh yeah. When I got home and went through the pockets, I found these black silk(?)/poly(?) glove liners. I will not be returning to the store to inform them that they sold them to me in the jacket.

    The Barbour is from a spot in Oakville but everything else in my post except for the Orvis are from that intersection...



    I'm a big fan of Patagonia gear and a big fan of vintage, domestically made items but I hate their snap t pullover (which this one is) and find it hilarious that this one (because of it's funky pattern) will sell for more than a brand new model!
