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 guess all the Harris Tweeds and a Hermes tie that I picked today will make me feel better.

    Anyone know anything about various Schott models? Got this for $10 in my size-ish and am planning to keep and am interested in finding out more about what model this is - seems like an A2 with leather ribbing instead of the usual cotton, plus two zip pockets above the usual button pockets on the front. The back pieces pattern is kind of weird and it also a nice removable wool liner.

    Also, how's this for a Pendleton?

    ^^^^That Pendleton is fucking awesome and should reap you some good return if you intend to sell it. The Schott is pretty cool too, but the way the back is stitched makes it look kind of 80's in a not so good way.

    Hit one store today and only one thing to show, a navy Scotch & Soda blazer in a very large size (XL/52). Unstructured, nice patch pockets.

    But the former owner was walking around with the tag still on the sleeve. :facepalm:

    Does anyone know what this is little attachment is? I glanced at it in the store and thought it was a detachable throat latch but it seems to be a pen folder or something. Maybe for a stiletto?

    Crappy crappy day of thrifting, BUT saving grace is I now do NOT need a Tuxedo!!!! [​IMG] And this thing is amazingballs x 100 (IMO).

    Highlight of thrifting is a Steven Alan casual jacket in MY FREAKING SIZE! but nothing else really at 8 stores.

    1st time ever in a C21 and OMFG I was like a kid in a really expensive candy store. Left a $30 Tom Ford PS as I have 15 high end PS coming in the mail from an e-thrift.....[​IMG]

    Needs a front brake or straps for the pedals, ideally both for basic safety.

    Does some of that include T&A?? If so, I may know where you acquired those. Anyway, I picked up this really cool, vintage, HSM jacket. Probably one of the oldest I have come by. However, I am thinking that it may be a women's jacket but the measurements seem to fit a 38R: 21" underarm, 24.75" sleeve, 18-18.5" shoulders, but it has a feminine like style and the sleeves have no buttons. Any insight would be appreciated.

    Speaking of T&A, is ID'ing my new avatar obvious without looking at the filename in my photo gallery?
