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.

    Hello hello ya'll.

    Wanting to stray true to the OG's of this thread - the following is all up for grabs at cost + shipping -
    But i'd much rather trade - I'm looking for a nice 36-38 tweed and other usual desiderata. PM me.
    Sorry for the shitty photography whirlwind week i'm having.

    42R Hickey Freeman Gun Check Blazer (would love to trade for a tweed or a similar guncheck in 36/38)

    I think you may still hold the title for a single item. Acosbysweater's croc Gucci loafers came close a few months ago.

    Thats a great markup. Sheesh. I got one a shirt on Ebay I got for $2.50 that is up to $189 Rare Gant shirt I guess. I love the shirt personally but just didn't fit me.

    +1. Any Borrelli tailored piece is rare and I'd consider it a grail.

    Very true.



    I think the NIB Lobbs from like 10,000 pages ago are still the best.

    Looks like a model not used currently, or possibly a custom order.

    Definitely the upper styling of the Contour Depth Inlay #310, but on the sole, footbed and trubalance last of the Luxury Comfort line.

    Anyone in the NYC make it down to the 121212 Concert at Madison Square Garden???? The whole couple rows are very well-dressed entrepeneur looking men and I thought someone here may fit that criteria. Billy Joel, NIRVANA!, Bruce Springstein and the E street band, Pink Floydd, Eric Clapton, Rolling Stones, The Who, and Paul McCartney oh and just throw in Bon Jovi. I promise this won't ever happen again. I wish I could be there right now...

    Do I win a pair of Gucci croc loafers that actually fit me?

    But seriously, Rookie of the Year definitely goes to DM7. A whole nother level of YOLO.

    Its older... nice looking though. Had one like that which I think went to a thread member. You can tell quick by the tag. One city = oldest, 2 cities = old, 3 cities = newish
