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.

    :laugh: Thanks! You're right, it is! May be making more of a habit out of it. I honestly think the belt and a pair of Sugar Cane jeans are the only things in my closet I paid full blown retail for. :laugh:
    :fistbump:
    Great pickups! Love the Barbour! Only one find today, but hell - I'm happy with this. Crappy cell phone pics as I am posting from my wife's work right now (car pooled with her since she is only working a half day). [​IMG] [​IMG]

    any 46R guys here interested in a PRL by corneliani wool/angora sportcoat? super soft, herringbone pattern looks like a 3 button but wears more like a 3/2. ticket pocket and side vented. looks flawless from what i can tell. Wanted to give my boys here dibe before it ends up on the bay.

    p2p is about 25"
    Shoulder is 20
    length is 31
    waist is 23
    Sleeve is 24 1/2 with 3/4 to let out

    Got this on a trade here and it didnt work for me. prefer to trade for something in a 44r SC or suit or other cool stuff.

    Haha, nope. I don't think something this nice would even make it out to the floor there. My wife works in Maplewood so I'm out there.

    Ah, there was a nice receiver over there apparently as well that he watched someone pick up from the new arrivals with sadness. Something big, silver and 70s.

    Woohoo, a forum of like minded people! I've been hitting up all the thrifts in my locale, but I'm not having the same type of luck as some of you guys... But that's not surprising based on what I see when I walk around my city. My wife doesn't get it and thinks I'm crazy!

    Just out of curiosity, is anyone else finding that a lot of the ties are fakes lately??

    My best finds, so far: AE Bel Airs, Samuelsohn flannel SC, numerous BB oxfords, including one BBBF.

    Still on the look out for some quality suiting! Best one yet was a recent model Hugo Boss (which is about as good as it gets at the men's shops around my city :S)

    I'll ask. He told me but I forgot. He's very well versed in stereo stuff.
