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.

    Did I miss that conversation? Casey always seems to be rollin' out in full pimp mode -- at least until you hit the feet, then BOOM!, grampa style.

    My brother, a fellow Mizzou-rian btw, has the opposite problem. We got him some H&mmms for Xmas, and are slowly trying to change the rest. :D

    Found these really cool Faconnable penny loafers. They looked pretty rough when I snagged them, but a couple coats of polish and some brushing later they look killer.

    Am I crazy, or are these made (in the U.S.A.) by Allen Edmonds? Everything about their construction leads me to believe they are.

    Finally got out yesterday after a bit time off. Found some things.

    Arnold Brant Cashmere/MINK (#mink) SC, side vented, 42L.

    [​IMG]

    Vintage BB POW suit, single vented, 1 pleat, around a 38R

    [​IMG]

    Peter Millar quilted jacket. Pretty sweet, wish it was my size. XL

    [​IMG]

    Zegna cashmere/silk lightweight crewneck sweater. Baller, XXL (fits smaller).

    [​IMG]

    Lavender Eton shirt. Tag isn't legible, seems around a 16.5

    [​IMG]

    I have about 12 pairs of boss flat front trousers. All around 32/31. Mostly black but a couple pairs of gray and brown.

    [​IMG]

    Vintage Gucci tie. Sweet pattern, I'm probably keeping.

    Ok, I got a decent response on those Indochinos. Again though, assuming they don't all go to thread homies, do you guys think id have better luck listing them on B&S than Ebay? There are only like 2 Indochino items on ebay, and they want a good bit for them (for used clothes anyway), so im curious.

    All 3 are identical in terms of style and measurements. there are 2 of the grey and pink, i left one because I wasn't sure about moving them, but ill snag the other when I go back, im 100% sure no one will snag it b4 I go back. Also, these can't possibly be orphans could they? There were no pants for any of them, again ill check again when I go back.
    Here they are, w/ pics and requested measurements:Shoulder 18, chest 20, 29 length, 25 sleeve, so a true 38R. 16' waist at slimmest point, and the sleeves measure 6.75 wide, I've never measured sleeve width, but I know these are slim, I doubt you'll have to take it in for any big alterations if you fit the measurements.

    All buttons functional, dual vented (basted), the pockets are either basted or aren't real pockets (i guess this gives it a sleeker look when worn?), and they seem to be 1/2 canvassed (i'd bet $$ on it) and are both 100% wool. Get at me! Retail on these is prob like $400 right? I'll give you guys a deal and do 1/2 [​IMG] . Finally, are these a thread first? If so, an e-cherry popped!

    Double post, but whatever, Dig wins the cardigan/denim fit contest. My thoughts, leave your tie at home when wearing denim... period. Also, as to whomevers fit started this (can't remember) I like it personally, and really dig that tie, however (i can't believe this hasn't been said) it is vaguely reminiscent of Waldo... Finally, Michigan is about to win a chunk of the Big Ten title, RIGHT NOW! GO BLUE BOIIIII

    Hahaha. This is why I love you guys. I went out right after I posted, and come home to find that I'm now a meme. I love it. Sincere thanks to everyone who commented, I read them all and really appreciate them. Thanks for the feedback dudes. I agree with much of the criticism, but liked wearing the outfit. I like to have fun with stuff and experiment in ways I haven't done before, even if it doesn't turn out to be successful.

    You guys are most excellent, thanks.

    Nothing about the tag immediately jumps out to me as fake, though I haven't seen many non-tie Hermes pieces, so I'll wait for the more well versed to chime in.

    don't have any pictures, but there is a thrift store my sister works at that regularly sells Ralph Lauren polos for 8 bucks. She works there so she gets 50% off. Polos are a college kid's version of a Mercedes: they look nice, cost too much, and everyone's got one.
