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 picked up these ties at an estate sale today for practically nothing, but am a little iffy on the authenticity. Can someone verify these for me? Thanks.

    Nice. Work. Seriously.
    You asked about colors. Hard to tell if it's the light, but I think the green in the jacket is fighting with the color of the trou. If they're light gray you're fine. But if they're green/khaki, I'd say they're too close. Today: [​IMG]

I was going for dynamism and motion (something Spoo captures very well), but I think I ended up with this guy: [​IMG]
    Dare I post to WAYWRN? Or perhaps the Peacock Thread?

    I like everything, including the pose. The vest is amazing!

    My one concern is if the pattern on the SC gets to be too much with the other 3 patterns.

    Also, a big +1 to what others said. Any Willis & Geiger is worth picking up.

    Margins look kinda tight on some items though. I passed on an 80's looking W&G windbreaker a couple of months ago. Probably should have picked it up at least for trade bait, but looked to go for the $40-50 range on the 'bay and to me, that's not worth it if you are only a casual flipper.

    I am considering hitting up some thrift shops this weekend to look for some clothes because of all the great finds on here. I imagine the list of what I should look for is rather long, but if you could give me a brief overview that would be great.

    Found these NWOT Footjoy loafers today. Headed to eBay. Should be a decent flip.

    Haha I've read a few but uh, 60k+ posts? I do have other things to do unfortunately.

    And Mark, those loafers are pristine.
