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.

    Not 100% sure, but I'm pretty sure H&S is just a fabric shop. I think most of their stuff is made by others, and their US stuff is generally Tom James.


    Precisely my reaction. No point in going out for the next couple of weeks, I reckon.

    I also came across this mark in a trench coat with no other markings.
    Anyone know anything about what it might be?


    [​IMG]


    Also, does anyone know if these are flippable?

    I thought it was a running joke, but is this for real your family?




    And the T&A are all 17x34 but fit like 16.5s

    A few things worth mentioning over the last few days...
    [​IMG]
    I don't wear ties often but I'll probably keep this one in the quiver just in case...
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    Always on the lookout for solid outdoor gear and this made in USA North Face piece will work
    [​IMG]
    Was looking at stuff in the next aisle over and literally walked through the clothing rack when I spotted this...a couple sizes too big around the waist but perfect length and shoulders so may drop it off at the tailor to get it taken in... Vintage(?) Made in USA Woolrich down vest, khaki with royal blue liner
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    BB only came to Canada recently and Black Fleece even later so I skipped over the label at first because I barely recognized it but went back because of the material
    [​IMG]
    Ended up finding it's British cousin the next day...
    [​IMG]

    Missing detailed pics of:
    - NWT Ogio "half dome" duffle for the gym
    - Zegna LS polo with all of the MOP buttons broken by the dry cleaners so going to have to find some replacements
    - lavender poplin Etro for when the snow melts
    - NWT lululemon men's SS work out shirt in my size

    Ended up passing on 5 pairs of Caporicci made in Italy shoes (not exotics) and wondering how the construction is? Did a quick google search and could only find reference to their exotics skins but not their regular calf leather shoes. Any ideas? Worth going back for?
    FYI - I did a quick wipe down of the shoe on the right to see what was underneath the dust and dirt, uppers in solid shape, same with soles but a bit of wear on the heels

    Looking slick, man! Those shortwings look great with the socks.

    You sure? Looks like some of those vamps might be deer skin.

    Can't believe none of these ignorant fools posted to tell you those are an awesome find. They are.
    Oh hey... I went thrifting too. Here's the stuffs.

    Pants... Brioni (2x pleated), Zegna (FF), Canali (1x pleated)
    [​IMG]

    More pants, all of these are clearly from the same donor... a guy who's about a foot shorter than me.

    Zegna FF x2, Canali FF
    [​IMG]

    Some Harry Rosen branded linen pants for me, should be a nice wear come summer.
    [​IMG]

    The label on the inside. That red dot over the 'i' in Napoli looks a little familiar... Or is it just wishful thinking?
    [​IMG]

    Skeet blanket in its natural state. Soon to be transferred to the protective care of eBay.

    [​IMG]


    After striking out at the Boxing Day sales yesterday (probably because I was working until 6), I hit up the Winners near my parents' place this evening. Found some interesting things...

    Pal Zileri grey silk/wool pants. About 33-34 x 30. Available for cost ($25) + shipping if anyone wants them. Too good to leave behind.
    [​IMG]

    And then there's these. Set me back some cash but I think they were worth it.

    This is the Dior you're looking for.
    [​IMG]


    Also, I posted this ridiculous Thom Browne sleeveless oxford a while ago and got no comments, so I'm re-posting because I assume everyone was just too in shock to react.
