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.

    Yeah, I'm not a flipper so I don't care. Note taken about the right label thanks.

    Also wanted to share this real quick. Got this shirt in a trade with Barrel, but it had a stubborn stain on it. Easiest way to get rid of it? Dye the whole thing blue.

    This used to be khaki

    Good thinking and looks nice. I've only made one attempt at shirt dyeing which turned out pretty decent. I had too many white shirts that I never wear so it solved that problem for one of them.

    Thanks! I think it was held up, yeah, but I, noobishly, started panicking that no one was telling me how cool I was. So that's especially nice to hear, and doubly so coming from you guys.



    Not quite a beginner, so yeah: it's LA. It's confusing. New York is a way better-dressed town, to my eye, but I never had half the luck there I have here.

    Nothing glamorous, but I found a few things I like over the weekend, none of it available:

    Two made-in-Italy shirts that fit me great:

    The Sonrisa name is new to me, but it's a really nice shirt. Looks dingy in the pic, but not in person. (And can't get the $%#$ thing to rotate, apologies.)

    Anybody know who makes the made-in-Italy shirts for Barneys?

    This thing I love. 100% cashmere, gorgeous gun club check, side vents, spotless, just incredibly soft fabric. Technically not a thrift; I bought it at a hippie vintage store, but I would have happily paid double and it fits me like it was made for me.

    The tag I think maybe points to Belvest? Doesn't matter as I don't plan to sell or trade: I plan to wear it weekly.

    Now if we can get a stylized picture of Frenchy to sub in, it would be perfect.

    Thanks to all the well wishers, continuing to mend.

    I live in a smaller town in the midwest so the pickings are usually pretty slim compared to some of you guys.

    Nice finds today though.

    Harris Tweed Coat

    Unsure of what these are. Labeled as: Asoka, Moda Italiana.

    Can't seem to find anything on them. But still very nice quality.

    Piatelli makes the tailored stuff for Barneys, not sure about shirts.

    The label looks kinda like Isaia's label, but not exactly.

    I don't think they are shell. I have heard of pebblegrain shell but have never seen. These look like regular longwings IMHO. Still a very valuable shoe, as the others.
