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.

    IIRC, Polo used to mark stuff sold at their outlet stores with the gold dot. However, I think this was at the time period when outlet stores still sold mainline pieces, rather than the diffusion/lower quality stuff most stores push out now. Could be wrong on the latter point.

    This is correct. Certain stores still sell mainline pieces, though.

    The other random thing I grabbed yesterday (pre-dibsed by a member without even seeing it). I think it'd make for a good casual early spring piece, no?

    Remove the liner and this lining greets you

    Nothing terribly exciting, I know, but I thought it a cool old piece from them. Any idea of the era?

    I'd take measurements but she's in the freezer for a nap to make sure the wool stays hole-free.

    There's some surface grime on the front of the jacket that should come off easily with a cleaning. Tbe cuffs and collar could use a visit from a sweater stone type thing.

    Correct, made in Italy are the Isaia's. Also, their super 160's. I have one from Sep 09 that I wore to my sons wedding (many pounds ago and now it's too big 42S)

    Found a couple beautiful 3-roll-2 J. Press tweed jackets that aren't my size, dammit dammit dammit. Both have Donegal Mist tweed, no size tag but measure like 44Ls: 19 shoulder, 32.5 length, 23 pit-to-pit, 25 sleeve. Available!

    The dominant color for this one is greenish-brown but it doesn't show well in the pictures.

    Doesn't fit as in sleeves too short, or chest just slightly too big?
