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.

    I'm going to swim against the tide just a bit. I like the tie. I like the rest of the fit. I don't like the tie with this fit, though for the following two reasons:
    1. SF has drummed it into my head that one does not wear a tie with jeans. Business up top and party down below is not coherent.
    2. That button down shirt probably has a sick collar roll which is greatly compromised by being buttoned at the neck and cinched against your throat with the tie.
    I say lose the tie and then go ye forth and bed wenches. :slayer:

    I was considering it but ultimately left almost all behind. There was 20-30 bright patterned Ferragamos, a bunch of BB Makers, a Zegna or two and a couple of others. Grabbed the only two that weren't terrible for myself to see what I could do:

    Cotton BB Makers

    [​IMG]
    Turnbull & Asser

    Made a few stops today at some parts of town I don't usually hit up but nothing much of anything. Both of these available

    [​IMG]
    Brooks Brothers Made In Italy belt, seems NWOT with the BB logo written over in marker. 34.

    [​IMG]
    Polo cotton blazer, breast pocket and vent still basted shut. 42R but feels a little more like a long

    Spent all day with the lady at the mall then so too tired to take any good pictures it seems.

    To all those that I have no replied to and / or still have not shipped stuff too :facepalm: I finally have some time free Monday onwards. The mad crazy awful rush is over PHEW! I have not done thrifting for yonks, I wonder if those Thom Browne suits will still be there after 2 weeks. Will be hitting that store tomorrow but wont be holding my breath. I did find an old skeet blanket in a thrift pile at home, most awesomest polo skeet I ever saw. I have now used it for its appropriate purpose, anyone fancy pics of good ol Robert Graham :lol: I will be replying to PM's tomorrow or next day, I got to get me some shut eye have slept sparingly the last week prob will get a good 12 hours and get up in a timely manner to start hitting some thrift stores............
    I have always found red to be a brutal color to match with anything. Tough tough color kudos for trying dude ;)

    So to go along with Randomore's post, it appears my haul was the pre-game show.

    A good number of shirts I picked up yesterday had the string still around a button where a tag once hung. Today, there were tags. Lots and lots of tags.

    Yeah, no go on the tie with jeans. I will also submit that preppy cardigan with sneakers doesn't really go either.
    There's no easy way to say this, but... those pants look like they have a vagina.

    We (apparently) mourn the loss today (ok, recently) of an incredibly rich sartorial giant with phenomenal taste.

    Dibs my size. :hide:

    so after seeing these hauls from LA today, I guess it's pretty safe to say that Miami is shit for thrifting. [​IMG]

    Holy jeez! WTF is going on out there?!
    This is the Columbia to look out for, guys! Nice find! Very early stuff, I'd say early 70's to about 1978-79.
    :lurk:
    FTFY.

    +1. I would have thought my area would be good. I nearly had a heart attack when I found ONE Barba. These dudes pulled in DOZENS.

    What.

    Du.

    Fug.

    Thanks for that info. I thought the same thing too. It has a Canadian sales tag in it with French on it so probably the latter part of that span since I don't think we had bilingual labelling until at least the mid-70s.

    I found this the other day for myself. The union tag indicates it was made in the late 60's. It's a twill-weave wool and has side vents.

    What if it's a super casual tie with whimsical patterns? I've always dig the jeans with SC look.

    Oh yeah, [​IMG]

    I'm not going to comment on whether or not its acceptable to wear the tie cardigan jeans combo. But I will say this: if you're gonna rock the skinny tie, wear a shirt with a correspondingly small collar/wide collar. That collar just swallows up the tie.
