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 seriously just don't even ... what?

    DM7 finds literally truckloads of stuff.

    And takes it to 2010 greek's house.

    Why? What? What is even happening?

    Well, I'm not impressed with all that. And I'm glad you don't have the man-boobs to compete. Vote for Dig!

    Recent finds, not avail. Speaking of Mr Sids, I grabbed a box of ties once that had about 15 of them, let me know if you want pics.

    These are female skirt hangers.Don't you remember your mother using them? The cheap ones have clips.I guess they could be used for their slacks too.

    If they used them for slacks they're hang from the waistband, you can see it's a width for a female waist-24"
    Hanging from hem would only stretch and ruin shape from the weight.

    I remember my Mother using them to hang my father and my slacks from the bottom (upside down). It worked well and kept them from being wrinkled and having a crease across them.

    2010Greek is the bizarro Frenchy.


    Rather than take photos of unbelievable finds that he somehow picked his town clean of, he sits at home AND WAITS FOR A DAMN PHONE CALL.

    If you have room in your closet to hang from the cuffs, the tension of the weight of the top of your trousers will keep them wrinkle-free and help maintain that crease. If I didn't have a half-height closet, I'd use these for all my trousers.

    I think you missed the key in Greek's post -- he was feeding him his Grandmother's homemade Greek food. Good Food > Good clothes.

    It's worse than that. He takes pictures of his unbelievable finds AND waits at home for a damn phone call from DM7 to bring over a truckload of stuff. Seriously, wtf is going on out there?

    Has anyone seen this Macklemore thrifting video:

    just kiddin

    Week was kinda slow till I found this BB golden fleece suit:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Paid $35 for it at a thrift, which was higher than usual for these parts. I did it b/c it fits and just needs minor alterations. Fantastic handsewn details. M. Greenfield? N/A but I will make available another BB GF suit that I had gotten a while back (40-42Rish). Check the trading thread for that one.

    Other finds. Incotex FF chocolaty cords. 38x31 Available.

    Trafalgar brown thinnish belt. N/A

    [​IMG]

    VV long sleeve button down "Murray" shirt. Color is reddish orange. Tagged Large. Available

    [​IMG]

    Charvet L/S dress shirt. Tagged 44. French cuffs. Fits my neck size 16.5 but it is too baggy. I would say the sleeves are 33ish. p2p is 26". Reluctantly available.

    Speaking of BBGF, found this jacket but no trousers to be seen. It's navy though, so could be used as a blazer and I intend to check back at that store for the next couple days. Loro Piana, size43R also Martin Greenfield?

    And finally one of my favorite finds of all time. Recent HF Loro Piana blue windowpane blazer. In a size 43R :fu: :fu: :fu: :fu: :fu: Looks like it was never even tried on. This is available but only for something comparable in my size please. Brianpore, you still got that size 38? :smarmy:

    I figured it out. DM7 has a crew of guys with tricked out Honda Civics, and he's thefting semi trucks bound for Neiman Marcus.
