1. I'd like to announce that animated avatars are now available again. You'll have to reload, but they are once more possible.

    We've been doing a ton of work behind the scenes. The site load speed was already under 1/2 of what Huddler's was, on average, and we installed cloudflare, which means that the site should be even faster. A ton more will go on in the weeks and months to come, and some things will be more visibile, and some less.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    Well, I haven't measured it yet, but the tag says "18 LNG" so I assume it's long. PM me if you're interested and I can get you the actual measurements.

    Nice haul! Glad to see your thrifting here in the states has been productive! One of my favorite things that I have found for myself was a staple navy Theory suit, it fit perfectly without tailoring.

    Hate when that happens. I've done the exact same thing with an Oxxford suit. #facepalm

    Picked up this sweet Lebowski type sweater yesterday. No tags anywhere or marks where one would have been, so possibly handmade.

    That Linen pinstripe is sweet. Probably enough to make me reconsider my no pinstripes rule. No hate for pinstripes, I just think there are limts to how far down the banker look path you can go and still teach humanities classes.

    Speaking of which, my first thrift fit pic:
    A bit limited - I'm not set up to take full body shots for actual fit comments, let alone Dig style action shots. Just basic color combo recording here.
    Nothing special:
    Austin Reed Tweed
    shirt - Nordstrom house brand
    tie - no tags wool knit
    square - no name, cream silk
    [​IMG]
    OK, on reviewing the preview, it looks like I just photoshopped out a region above my pocket. I swear, I am really wearing a square, and it is NOT white. The ipod must have chosen it for white balance.

    Here's the crazy thing - my students liked my knit tie but (with a couple of exceptions) had never even heard of such a thing as a knit tie. Really, have we come to this?

    Anyone familiar with the label Brioni Sport? Obviously I'm familiar with Brioni, but I have never seen Brioni Sport before, and a quick google search didn't help me too much. I Found a pretty ugly sport shirt with that tag on it and was wondering if its even worth trying to sell, if not, I am only out $4. I can post pics later if needed.
