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.

    I found this about a month or so ago based on a tip from Catside, who I promised I would post here for posterity.

    Barbera Sartoriale by St. Andrews. Full canvas and generally awesome. Tagged 50R EU, but I'm able to button it, so I think it's closer to a 41 or even a 42R.

    Soon to be cross posted to the trade thread, it's going to be made available at cost plus ship.

    Edit:

    Same here, which is why I do it myself. Happy to provide instructions via PM. If you have and can thread a sewing machine, and can drive in a straight line, it's fairly straightforward.

    Took these at a GW about a week ago. There were three or four sport coats that belonged to former Cincinnati Red/NY Yankee Paul O'Neal. I didn't take pictures of the full coat...needless to say they were gaudy.

    Then the shock of the trip...the 60 written on the tag denotes the price.

    Hoping 2013 will bring some new found finds.....

    H Freeman is an MTM maker. They are still well and alive. Several shops here work with them.

    Here are some other finds. One pair of shoes is unlabeled but made in England. Any help identifying them would be greatly appreciated!

    If anyone is interested in "barefoot" running shoes, these are Merrell Trail Gloves in a size 10.5. Otherwise they're going up on the Bay.

    I wonder if the tailor got it wrong. There wouldn't be too many people with that name running around Cincinnati getting custom made clothing. The jackets were longer than what I would take, and he's a tall guy. There was also a bunch of Nike shoes and cleats there that were all size 11 / 11.5.

    Please post that in my vintage thread, cool one.



    Not the Hermes you are looking for. .98c too much. :(

    Gajhhhhhh...seeing these posts makes me wonder what people who don't even know to ask are passing. YIKES. Can we please assemble a mass text phone tree for brand questions? Thread regulars only, of course.

    Found this cool 90th anniversary W&G jacket, sorta a knockoff barbour, tons of cool details (poachers pocket, detachable collar, a zilllion pockets, wool liner, moleskin lined handwarmer.....)
    Fabric is a cotton blend but feels oily.
