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.

    Not surprised I'm not on the list.
    Then again I'm more the avid reader than poster. Even if I thrift 4 days a week, just don't have time to get pics up with my busy schedule.
    Post on!!

    Not to [​IMG], but quite a few members here like BB shirts as a staple, particularly the slim fit or ESF, luxury line, or cotton/cashmere blends, which are more rare to find- they are also usually the only ones posted .....
    Nice haul [​IMG]...I thrifted that exact same Hermes shirt (1st and only for me also) a month or so ago, same size, same metal cuff buttons.....
    Very cool, Dig, Thanks for putting this together!!! I'm surprised I'm actually on there, don't feel like I've been posting much at all lately, but been trying to keep up w/ the postings....Keep it up, guys!!

    Nat, those shorts are right on trend with S/S 13 Engineered Garments. I suggest wearing them...not in Minnesota.

    Here's some pedestrian finds for you guys, something I didn't know I needed, Gitman Bros yellow gingham with button down collar and smoked MOPS's. Perfect for the spring, but which begs the question, what to pair it with?
    [​IMG]
    And I don't really give a shit it these aren't Drakes. As someone who actually likes looking at clothes and especially cool patterns, I thought I'd share. Matching NWT Grant Thomas silk and wool scarfs. Suck it haters!

    To round out my shitty post, I'll just leave this here.

    I also got some vintage 60's BB shirts with the unlined collar and the perfect roll, but I know you guys don't want to see those. We now return to the regularly scheduled bitch fest.

    Whattup bros. I'm out from under my rock, temporarily, and in moderation. I've even gone to a few thrifts in the last week or so - been a long time since I could get out on a regular basis.

    Anyway, I wasn't going to post until I had something worth taking pics of, but reading over the unfathomable number of posts lately lead me to believe that I'd be welcome back in the community even without pics! I did manage to find a couple of pairs of flat front Zanellas (actual flat front, not "flat front Zanellas" and a cardi that I'll be sporting in the evenings for the rest of the heating season. Pics later maybe, but I doubt it.

    Anyway, I'm back, reading off and on, and thrifting occasionally.

    (oh yeah, TyphoidJones, if you're looking to unload any 10.5 E ... :hide: )

    I agree with this as well...I think most of us spend too much time looking at random clothing items during the day at thrifts, we don't always want to be looking at consistantly online; it's good to break it up every once in a while.

    A sidetrack topic; what cool non-clothing items have you purchased with thrifted funds? I know many of us are married with children, so thrifting funds are usually the only way we can convince the significant other of the non-essential purchases. I'll start off with mine:

    1978 Honda CB750 (not pictured yet, currently getting modded with thrifted funds too!)
    Omega SMP 9300

    The bow ties are BB, which is a first for me. I NEVER find bow ties, much less vintage brooks brothers.

    Is there a guide we can use for Florsheim and Dacks shoes? Many were made here in Canada, so it's common to see them in the thrifts here. What identifiers should we look for? Are they pick-ups for personal use only, or do they have much currancy? I don't want to pick up any pairs if there isn't much interest for trades and stuff.

    They should be heavy as hell and have like 100 nails and a v-cleat in the heel for the good ones. Also 5 nails in the waist of the sole (3 on one side, 2 on the other)

    Good to see your back in action, sort of and still holding down the fort in the Mill.
    In other news, thrifted an Ipod dock and a vintage Eddie Bauer glen plaid wool tie, made in the USA, not pic worthy though. :hide:

    Nice watch!

    I can never look at watches without removing an image burned into my head. My brother is totally eccentric. He had a nice surfing watch with a Velcro strap. One day he calls me to the lounge and asks me where do I think his watch is. I scan around, nope nothing, he aint wearing it. Then he drops his pants and says check this out. Yup, he had the watch strapped around his cock.

    I always imagined a hypothetical exchange in the street, i.e.

    Gentleman: “Excuse me sir, could you please let me know what time it is”.

    I wonder what a random stranger would have thought if my brother whipped his dong out of his zipper and then told him the time.

    Anyway that watch incident in the lounge scarred me :lol:
