    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.

    :popcorn: That's saying something.

    Welcome, friend. We live by a single rule here: Pics or it didn't happen. There are no exceptions.

    Or not. Sounds like you'd have snagged them.

    Nice fit! Looks great!

    Nice finds!

    Highlife: Great shirt haul! Always impressed when I see Hermes non-ties.

    And this Polo Ralph Lauren jacket. 3 roll 2, throat latch, leather elbow patches, heavy wool. Awesome details. Been looking for something like this all winter.

    I didn't think Eugene wold support several active thrifters, but it looks like both of you are coming up with some pretty good stuff. I always told myself that it wasn't worth the trip down. Unfortunately, I'm pretty sure that Versace is fake.

    I picked this shirt at a local thrift yesterday. It doesnt look like it was worn. Haven't seen this brand and I don't find much info on SF. Is it worth anything?

    The color is much lighter (kind of baby blue).

    Dude, how can that tie be fake when it has not one, not two, but three tags confirming its authenticity?

    "Burberrys" is older Burberry, correct? Saw an old trench with that label. Was a nice coat at some stage, but was unfortunately in rough shape.

    Anyone know anything about Barena Venezia? Found this in the womens section - fits me reasonably well picked it up and will probably keep but completed eBay listings look like it might do well for me there. DB all cotton, dual vent, completely unstructured.

    Other find I'm particularly chuffed with - T&A 100% cashmere sweater. A bit of piing but no major issues and nothing that a once over with a razor won't fix.
    Moral of the story is always check what's on the mannequins!

    Burberry's rebranding strategy included dropping the apostrophe-S in 1998.

    '1998 - Bravo taps Italian designer Roberto Menichetti to launch the designer Burberry Prorsum line. Photographer Mario Testino is hired to retouch the brand’s image, newly rebranded as Burberry (dropping the “s”). Cool Britannia models Stella Tennant and Kate Moss will embody Burberry’s new spirit in Testino’s black-and-white ad campaigns. The Diana tartan—pale blue with navy, black, and red stripes—introduced in memory of the late Princess of Wales. Alexis Bittar designs the brand’s first ready-to-wear jewelry collection. Vogue staffer Katherine Betts profiles Menichetti in the December story “Check Mate.” '

    Awesome find, and 50 points for use of the word 'chuffed.'
