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.

    Noted. I'm glad I'm not looking for mid century furniture at the moment because he is dominating those pieces. That being said pulled a few pairs of shoes the other day and popped 3 cherries...

    Dacks bench made in England (Cheaney I think) oxblood long wings maybe worn a handful of times. A bit tight for my wide feet at 9d so may be available. Pretty sure they're polished binder leather (corrected grain) but they're still awesome!

    Zegna dark brown chukka boot. At the cobbler getting new heels and fit so NA
    [​IMG]

    Have been looking for a pair of brown tassel loafers and saw the tassels hanging off a dirty, neglected pair of shoes. It's amazing what a good clean, condition and buff will do to a decent pair of leather...

    Gucci bamboo tassel loafers. Fit like a glove but not sure if i can wait til the spring to rock them or just get paid on the bay...currently NA

    A bunch of threads too but the camera is down ATM so will slowly take pics with the iPad over the next few days to catch up...

    I thrifted that precise Gant for Barneys Coop madras and wear it weekly in the summertime (and occasionally in what passes for winter in LA). One of my favorite shirts. Amazing haul overall!

    Seize sur vVingt are an NYC store and brand doing mostly MTM and a few off-the-rack shirts. Really nice stuff, though probably not the absolute finest money can buy. No idea how it does on eBay, but that's my size ... PM incoming!

    Pleasure is all mine, and please post a fit pic of that dinner jacket! And I doubt I'll pull that off again; it was pure synchronicity.

    I in turn picked up a sweet Corneliani wool/cashmere jacket from JL3212, who was a great guy to trade with and packed the jacket (and some shoes I bought from him also) like a pro. Fit pics once back from tailor.

    5/5 WOULD 3-WAY AGAIN.


    Ha!

    +1...I don't own any Dobbs, but they are well regarded, especially as Cesar noted, the older stuff. I haven't really looked into dating them, but a wild guess would be a bit newer on yours. Again, I don't have the knowledge of those, but it's a guess.

    As far as Rover and Lakes is concerned, I've never heard of them...possibly a German house label? They turn up on eBay, watches, shirts, jackets, but don't go for a lot. Sorry I can't help!

    Thrift gods cruel -- not only did they send Messrs. Fezza and Perry Ellis after me last night...but

    ooh!
    [​IMG]


    slightly frayed -- but frayed nonetheless -- collars and cuffs :fu:

    and then me first mabitex!

    [​IMG]

    half effing polyester.

    I did manage to find a j press tux shirt perfectly measured to my size.

    Justifying, therefore, putting together a tux from thrift stores!

    My tux shirt has no buttons. Need a recommendation: Who has the studs?
    1) One of you? PM.
    2) Do you ever see them at thrift stores (I never looked, although when I was accumulating cufflinks by the dozen pairs...never saw them)?
    3) I see some on eBay and I bet if I hit the Rack they'd have some...

    Another dumb question: Must the cufflinks match the studs or can you have generically black onyx or whatever studs and fancy cufflinks?

    You can match or not....it's up to you. At least try to match the metals, silver links/silver studs. I'd go for black onyx studs and some sort of low-key silver cufflinks. If it's your only pair or you don't wear black tie often, simpler is better.

    Is anyone here a fan of the truly loud animal print? The VV style where it's so fine that it's practically just a geometric I can get on board with, but the other... Passed yesterday on a BB Makers tie of monkeys/gorillas lifting weights, very strange.
