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.

    Eddie,

    I know you do this full time but that does NOT take away from the most amazing discounted haul I have EVER seen in my life. I thought you got around 10 items or so but as I kept scrolling down my mouth continued to drop. Everything was f*n amazing!

    The TB cardigans, the TF everything, the scarves, the Lanvin shoes. My f*n goodness.

    Hands down. Most amazing hau!!

    Congrats man

    Well, they are known for making decent selvedge denim. Some would call their stuff intro to selvedge. Nice stuff.

    Easy, flip on the bay and get $$$!

    I would cop if the price is right.

    +1

    Diffusion. I think Brian was able to successfully flip them.

    Hmm, I guess I did only recently learn what selvedge actually looks like...

    I almost picked up a pair of vintage selvedge a week or two ago. I passed because they were overalls. Later, I looked on Ebay, and found Big Mac overalls selling for nearly $300. Can't skip stuff like that anymore without researching!!

    I will attempt to flip the R&G. We'll see what happens.

    I also picked up a few sellable ties (two BB Makers and one Coach).

    Sorry to bump this, but it was one of my last posts as a newbie. Ended up showing up about 5 pages into the history almost a day later. :)

    Anyone recognize the maker of this tag ? Made in Italy for Brooks Brothers.
    Thanks!

    I would pick up all APC, jeans or otherwise (except for madras by apc, that's their diffusion line) They aren't necessarily the top of the line stuff but they are a very popular brand. No matter what it is you won't have a problem selling it. (and if it's mediumish range let me know ;) )

    Snuck out for a few minutes, after all my homeowner drama today.

    These finds are intermingled with some residual items from the weekend. Still have more pants and tons of shoes to process.....stay tuned.


    Man if only this one was one size smaller and one size shorter...

    Pretty sure it's Lardini. I have one too, actually the only suit that is in my permanent wardrobe...at least until I shed a few more pounds.

    One store for me today. Total crap. Until they brought out a literal bin of ties. Started going through them. Mostly Pulitzer and Dior. Then a few gems.

    32 in all. Condition varies, to be sure. But all are serviceable or better. No guarantees that all are genuine, but if even just 2 are, I've more than made my money back.

    Hermes are all fake. Please dispose of them at my premises immediately.

    Jk, all look legit from here, only the red w/blue pindots one is slightly suspect because of how blocky the Hermes logo is on the small end.
