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.

    Thanks guys. That's the one. The label in question is not as old as I thought, but I'm grabbing it anyway.

    Dear thrifting comrades,
    Here is another little thing I've found this last year—at an estate sale, however, not a thrift shop—that I have not managed to pull off all year, and so I'm making, errmm, supernumerary. (I mean available, :embar::spam:!)

    A beautiful eccentric brown flannel from Zegna's MTM programme, double-breasted with thick, bellied lapels and beautiful light-brown buttons. Toasty and heavy, with all the proper bells and whistles. Wear it in the city pretending you just came back from your country estate where you still wear brown flannel for some reason. Spectacular!

    Shoulders: 18"
    sleeves: 26"+1.25 of extra material, working cuffs
    chest: 21"
    BOC: 30"
    waist on jacket: 19"

    trous:
    double pleats+suspender buttons

    waist: 32"+1.25"
    inseam: 31.5"+2.25"+1.75" cuffs

    Details: Cupro Bemberg lining, side-vented, working cuffs, pick-stitching for a pinch of rusticity

    In your thrift store 10 minutes ago
    Thrift fit from church this AM for the benefit of secret santa Mox C, who sent the tie and pocket square. Apologies for the slop on the collar (one in one out), this was after services, a trip to the store, and kid wrangling in and out of car. One one hand, shoulda checked myself in a mirror before I wrecked myself. OTOH, this represents real life, I'm not one of those SF catalog model wannabes who like the wistful looks sitting by the seaside hahahahaha. I is what I is.

    Nice! Glad you are putting them to good use. :D

    I can see why you keep wearing the Nettletons. They are pretty awesome.

    Wow that sweater vest/pocket square is like they were made for eachother! Love the Nettleton alligator's too. A consignment shop in my area had a pair for $160 I was awaiting them to get lower so maybe next time I go back I could obtain them :). This is very very cool. I wanna see what you are going to thrift fit on Christmas [​IMG]

    [​IMG]This is the greatest thrift/discount post I have seen in a while, I wish I had was financially able to do what you are doing. Passed on some crazy stuff at a discount high-end shop that I really am kicking myself for. Kiton half cashmere, thrift right???? RIGHT?

    I shed a tear when this did not fit as it was oh so close BUT it should be good trade material or help pay for my (soon to be ordered if i cant find anything) tux.

    I dont use this often when thrifting, but from my experience it is NWOT. Shoulder basting is still intact.

    Edit - Forgot to upload the last picture of size tag


    Also picked up these two. Another Donegal (hope the last one is being worn well by a forum member [​IMG]) and this BB Loro Piana for myself, kid sized 18 but fits perfect.
