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.

    Dudes.

    Part brag, part :spam:

    I kopped.
    http://www.ebay.com/itm/281045745408?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1439.l2649
    http://www.ebay.com/itm/281045739160?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1439.l2649

    The shirts are quite good quality -- well constructed, slim fit, lots of bells and whistles. Pit is like 23.5 and arms are a solid 34. A bit more collar/cuff fray than was disclosed, but still very wearable. The real issue is that the measurements posted were the tagged measurements (even though I asked seller to confirm them). So the striped one closes but is snug, and the gingham doesn't close at all. As such, I'm going to make the gingham available for trade (or cash I guess; you know what I paid), and I guess even the striped one if it really blows your skirt up (thanks 330ck, for that gem of an expression). My sizes are below.

    Not the Dior you're looking for but not necessarily fake either. Check the tags. Manufactured in Argentina? Dior has licensed the brand in South America. Those clothes have the silver "Dior" label but "CD" on the lining. Quality is decent but this is not the "true" Dior of current vintage or the Hedi Slimane era.

    Those jeans do look kinda wack, just the label porn I guess.

    On a related note... I thought Prada always had a black content label with silver writing overtop the white content label. Someone want to school me?

    I never go to that Goodwill anymore. Actually, that's a lie. I do, but I never find anything anymore. (Oh, and that wasn't me; I look like a slob usually.)

    The one reason I miss my job in the suburbs is the thrifting. Lunchtime thrifting in Roswell was way better than what I've run into in town in the past month.

    Faq it! Do it! YOLO!

    Sorry, bud. That's the diffusion line. SCs and suits are fused to shits. But it might still flip if you get it at a good price.

    Hey, I don't care about hockey! Can I still tell you about the shit I found?

    I can't figure out whether DM7 is in LA or New England or, god help us, both. Either way, someone left a few things in LA for us smalltimers. Nothing earth-shattering; everything available unless otherwise noted. And a blanket apology for the crappy pix.

    Buncha ties:

    Polo, Brooks wool (keeping), Polo, Giorgio Armani, Zegna
    [​IMG]

    Matching Robert Talbott 7-folds, recent
    [​IMG]

    An Arnys and a Brioni with whaever you call the thing on the tail end of the tie that buttons to your shirt.
    [​IMG]


    Black 1" Cortina Trafalgar belt, marked 40:
    [​IMG]


    Super lightweight cotton/viscose navy Prada trousers, marked 52 with a shortish inseam:
    [​IMG]

    Dooney & Bourke braces:
    [​IMG]

    Shooz:

    Bally loafers, EU 8.5:
    [​IMG]

    Ferragamo Oxfords in great shape, marked 9 but measure like a 9.5:
    [​IMG]

    Johnston & Murphy loafers in 9.5D - 99% sure these are shell cordovan:
    [​IMG]

    And finally, stuff I probably should have passed on but didn't:

    Old-label LL Bean wool ... let's call it a shacket? Tagged medium, fits me like a 40R
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Steeple Gate - would you call these spectators? No idea on the brand, but made in Italy and possibly some kind of exotic leather and kind of awesome. Snakeskin, I take it? I'm extran00bish on this stuff. 9.5. Checkout lady described them as "super-cute."

    I'd call them full brogue spectators -- certainly unusual two-tone in the brown. Used to white instead of light brown. Good snag!

    I'm convinced nobody actually cares about hockey, it just gives them something to talk about since their football teams suck.


    Arny's is very cool! They're out of biz now, so collectors will be scooping them up.


    Don't think I've seen anything that old from LL Bean. Pretty cool. Those shoes, though...

    I don't know, I think Spoo would totally rock them. Actually, I think I might be able to pull them off... PM sent! YOLO, right? [​IMG]

    Hey gents, if you are looking for a beater blazer that has a modern fit, check this bad boy out!

    http://canvas.landsend.com/pp/mens-boiled-wool-blazer~245807_-1.html

    Thinking about coping one. If you are a stickler on fit, like me, call up their customer service and ask for measurements. It turns out I normally fit a 40 but I have to size up to a 42.

    Cheers!
