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.

    They aren't marked, other than the "Professional Dry Clean Only" tag. The close up of the weave looks identical...too funny.

    @Pnutpug: Thanks for the info. Unfortunately the coat's a bit to long and would need to be redone. Not interested in flipping. I'll either bite the bullet and have it tailor to a 40R or see if I can trade it here.

    @Deadboy: Tried to get the spoilers to work, but couldn't figure out how to add the pictures within the spoilered portion. I'll have to learn that.

    favorite cop in a long long time....
    common projects achilles for 89 shipped..
    [​IMG]

    I have been going HAM on ebay lately, I got the red baracuta g9 I have been after forever, a brioni navy garza fina grenadine for $20 (although I am sending it to tiecrafters to slim it down to a 3.25) some OG supreme t's from back when their collabs were cool like run DMC, but what I really am lusting after right now is this tie...



    [​IMG]

    it is freaking perfect but listed at a buy it now of $100, the only reason I am considering it is because I recently recently purged my entire tie collection, except for
    • the navy grenadine
    • self tipped unlined summer navy and white rep
    • green silk with blue pindot
    all I need to round out my collection is the brown borrelli tie and a 3in black silk knit.

    MartiniGirl - Im quite impressed at the Campagna scissors comment. Wow.

    Gmmcl - I always scroll slow at your fit pics, am quite impressed at the top, but your thighs down always disappoint me. Your pants, Im guessing are 9.5-10" at the cuff? I think you would benefit from going to an 8.5-9.25" comfort zone on the cuff, and wearing less blobby shoes. The top is so fitted and looks great, the bottom is discordant from that to my eyes.

    I know, not the thread for critiques, but I know you are trying to improve and have made leaps and bounds so far.

    Carry on.

    The Loro Piana is legit. Daks is awesome if fits me. CD is crap. Incoming PM! [​IMG]
    I was really surprised to see the quality of Unbranded other than the pleather tag. I would prefer no pleather tag. The blue line selvedge is a nice touch! Yeah, I agree. The tapering is not very aggressive but I can live with these. Lol, I think the "weird" part of the right leg has to do with the angle and the stiffness of the fabric. [​IMG]
    Nice! Is the Burberry made by HF? If it's in good shape, I think $5 will bring you a decent flip.

    :plain: I was actually just thinking how clean it is. (note that the focus is off in that pic)
    Much trues. But the Daks is good. Everything else should be set up on a speed date with fire. (sorry Pack66, there's a lot of fail in there) Been busy at work, so haven't gotten out. But have hit the odd store between work locations. Found a few things: [​IMG] L to R: Orvis flannel, XL, prolly available NWT J Crew pale yellow chinos, not available Vtg Aquascutum DB half trench, needs a solid clean and prolly keeping Fairly recent USA made (but not by HF) Burberry suit. Some damage. Available (not that anyone wants) [​IMG] Closeup of the Orvis [​IMG] A few hand-rolled silk squares. Keeping the green and prolly the red paisley. Others are up for grabs. Anyone recognize these tags:
