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.

    Cheers,

    $60? probably if it's in really good shape but it might not be easy to sell. sounds too cool to leave behind though, would cop.

    Is it in good condition? What about any stains or odor? Got pics from the field? Is it an odd size? Depending on how many Jacksons? If it's less than 2, I def. would cop if all conditions are met!

    If less than $60-$80, I'd buy it just to say I bought a bespoke Huntsman riding jacket.

    Na - what we don't get in quality down here, we make up for in price and volume apparently.. :) I flip them for an average of 3-4 times what I paid, plus shipping. Not huge, but makes the search more bearable.

    Thanks for the comment!

    Not the YSL you're looking for.

    Actually not the Kiton either. But I have a buddy that collects those non-good Kiton label jackets, so if you want to send it to me, I'd happily do a proxy.
    'Rive Gauche' is what you're looking for. You'll know it when you see it because it will be on some crazy ass runway piece, not an old tie.

    No, Rive Gauche is what you're looking for.

    Ditto. That sounds way too awesome for me to be able to leave behind. I'd just as soon let it sit in my closet with my small but growing "museum" collection.

    It isn't terrible, but generally flips around $10-$15 total (shipping included). Rive Gauche goes for 4-6x that.

    ^^^^^ Is it really hard to quote a bunch of stuff at the same time? Or am I just really bad at computing.

    That is fucking sick. You need to do something about those pedals though.

    Well, I wont post my shitty finds from today then, seriously, one of the only strike out days I think I've ever had. 7 stores and only a tie and a pair of braces.

    Kopped.

    One of my most unique, rarest set of finds coming up on your late local news. Not my best in terms of volume or value or anything. But definitely in terms of sheer rareness and awesomeness.

    Haven't been out much recently and not finding a lot around town. Went out last night and all day today and came up pretty empty. Bought a few not worth mentioning for myself and the following

    Arnold Brant 3 button sport coat made of Loro Piana Cashmere (fits like a 42R or S. Arms are really short but jacket length seems regular on me)

    [​IMG]

    Perfect condition WW2 era military shirt, not sure if worth the pickup but seemed too cool to pass up

    Also not pictured but picked up a Levis and Liberty collab denim jacket which seemed to be somewhat collectible to someone hopefully.

    Passed on a pretty recent (from what I remember of the tags) Hickey Freeman cashmere sport coat at $30 because it was a 50R. Could proxy if it's still there tomorrow.

    Nice! WWII stuff is getting very scarce, especially the wool stuff not littered with moth holes!
