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.

    Had an interesting day. A lot of the thrift stores have these perpetual 50-75% off sales, and I think they truly believe they have no repeat customers because they're always pitching it as a brand new limited time sale. I made the mistake of asking if a particular item fell under their 75% off winter clothes. She immediately started bringing me coats, sweaters, and other winter items and literally wouldn't stop until I had left the store. "But it's made in Italy, Italian made right here," she barked while holding up a jacket that looked like it was pulled off a body that had fallen into a wood chipper. At another store two old ladies crashed into each other and one fell down and set off one of those necklace beepers they advertise on TV. She was alright.

    I prefer the look of a physique that flows, with all parts fitting together. Boobs that large make it practically impossible.

    Went back to my new honey hole today. I visited there for the first time Saturday before last and figured might as well swing by and see if they get new stuff regularly enough to justify 1 or 2 visits per month. Here's what I came away with today:


    Barbour coat:
    [​IMG]

    Another Barbour coat:
    [​IMG]

    PRL Bi-Swing coat:
    [​IMG]

    Another PRL Bi-Swing:
    [​IMG]

    Yet another PRL Bi-Swing (the PRL Bi-Swings will cover my gas money at least):
    [​IMG]

    Faconnable, made in Italy:
    [​IMG]

    Here's the tag - will have to look it up, unless it looks familiar to anyone here:
    [​IMG]

    PRL made in Italy:
    [​IMG]

    Tag on the PRL is identical to the Faconnable insofar as layout etc:
    [​IMG]

    Tommy Bahama new with tags:
    [​IMG]

    Bobby Jones sweater new with tags:
    [​IMG]

    Hawes & Curtis new with tags:
    [​IMG]

    Yet another Barbour:
    [​IMG]

    ...the good stuff...:
    [​IMG]

    Peter Millar trying to be a Barbour:
    [​IMG]

    Gant Rugger new with tags:
    [​IMG]

    And one for the ladies - 100% wool coat with genuine fox fur collar. The tag has been snipped but a RN search says it was made my Forecaster of Boston Inc, and it has the American union label so was made in the USA...
    [​IMG]




    Everything headed to eBay eventually save for 1 or 2 items for myself.

    Three Barbours in one stop. Insane.

    That is a Cantarelli tag by the way.

    Nice, I have some brown pebble grain PTBs (alden, not ferragamo) and I think they're the perfect pair of casual shoes.
    Scandal of the century - all of DM7's finds were just generic pics that he found online.

    Holy hell. That must be far outside the perimeter; intown seems to be a bit dry, though I am thrifting a lot less than I used to.

    I left as many Barbours as I picked up. Also left a Paul Stuart lambskin vest and a Paul Stuart leather sport coat - both needed cleaning / conditioning and I try not to buy anything that needs work, any more.

    Re: Cantarelli: Thank you thank you thank you! I hate having to wade thru that "labels" thread and wonder if it's accurate. I've got a PRL Italy with Corneliani tags thus knew it wasn't them - I appreciate the info.

    You sure that Versace is legit? I'll let others (Spoo) chime in, but I have reservations. Good haul overall.
