    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'll just say this... I now know why you brag about skeet blankets... To paraphrase a crazy dead Aussie, "Krikey!"...

    Dave Brubeck has a good one too, called Bossa Nova USA, I highly recommend it if you dig the other two. :nodding:

    My recent finds - had some luck finding stuff in a 44!

    Hugo Boss 100% cotton coat - Italian made - 44- Sahara model. Sure looks legit, but I can't find a record of this model anywhere. (ignore the stripe of sunlight) - Likely not available

    Found my first RLPL shirt (French cuffs) - Made in Italy and it is exactly the shirt I wanted.. just a little too big.. 17 1/2 neck - available


    [​IMG]


    Also my first Etro tie:


    [​IMG]


    Also found a Pal Zileri suit - about a 44 in the jacket, but the pants are too small for me and don't have enough material to tailor (35x28) - available

    Sn0wan, that blazer sure looks to be a suit jacket. Go find the pants and we can talk about what you'd like for the suit if the measurments suit me :)

    Anyone know this maker? For me regardless (feels nice, my size, nice color), but I'd be interested to know before I remove the tags. Besides being qualitatively nice, couldn't resist NWT, Made in Italy, 100% Sea Island Cotton for $5.

    Thanks for posting that Mainy...being into clothes and finance...it's interesting how this stuff turns out. We may not like the clothes, but look at what Les Wexner did with the A&F name.


    Also never understood the Sears acquisition of Lands End either.

    Ah, Lands End. They once had oh-so-cool stuff--their Scottish woven shetland sweaters with saddle shoulders were the equal of anything on the planet, damn near.

    Also worth noting that that Samuelsohn label is about the oldest one out there, and generally not very desirable.

    E-thrift brag time.

    Picked up this awesome NWT charcoal SC by Alexandre Plokhov on the bay last week for about 90% off retail.
    [​IMG]

    In case you're wondering what that detail is on the sleeves... it's zippers.

    [​IMG]

    This is my new favourite thing. Unfortunately though, it's just a bit... ahem... snug. Took it to my tailor to see about getting it let out today. He told me that wouldn't make a difference, and I should just shed a few pounds instead.

    [​IMG]

    So.... wear with a longer T in the future?

    Also got to FINALLY head out to the thrifts today. Hit two shops and came up with a few things:

    Naked & Famous Skinny Guy Deep Indigo Selvedge jeans, size 31, available.
    [​IMG]
    These are barely worn, no fades, still got that rigid feeling of new raw denim. However, worth noting the owner had them tapered... hopefully for optimal stacking.

    Lorenzini shirt, soon to be Lorenzini pocket square (or two)
    [​IMG]

    Ermenegildo Zegna S/S SC. Old label Zegna but it's a beaut, nice gorge, double vented, patch pockets. Wish it fit me. 52R, available

    Out in the wild. Found an SC with amazing wool fabric. Anyone recognize this label?
