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.

    Cheers,

    It's more like late 60s/early 70s, but that thing is amazing.

    Awesome! Man, you California members are so spoiled with all those cool shops. We have a few SW&D-ish boutiques here, but nothing that really carries high-end tailored stuff anymore.

    I RARELY find suits or sports coat is my own size, but last night I got lucky. Found two bespoke jackets made in the 80s by a tailor in New York. Fully canvassed, handsewn, Surgeon's cuffs, double vents. And they fit me nearly perfectly. Unfortunately, they look to have been packed up for like 20 years, and one ended up having a bunch of holes. It was a SWEET purple/blue/black tweedy silk. The one I ended up keeping is gonna go down the street to Rave Fabricare for cleaning and pressing.

    If I remember Belvedere shoes correctly, if you show the rest of that pic, vomit will be spewed.

    Sweet Jesus!!! :drool: :worship: I've been combing ebay for just the right pair in snuff suede for the last couple months, nothing yet though.
    Nope, makers. I've also got a vintage golden fleece navy pinstripe from the same guy, also from Tubs, that I dropped off when I picked this beaut up. ^^^^^^Dudes, that Norfolk jacket and suit are awesome! :slayer:

    I swear I've seen Beveldere shoes somewhere before, but I can't, for the life of me, remember where?

    One from Hans' neck of the woods (Fitz-Pichler Wool, made in Tyrol, Austria), which I passed on because it's a women's piece from the 80s. But it's still cool...

    Good grief been sick for the last 4 days haven't thrifted at all but have had the pleasure of dealing with international nutcases.

    That is it no more international dealings for me on ebay. Too much hassle.

    Got a guy in England flipping out on me because he is being charged a $15 custom fee and is blaming me and now he is going to refuse to pay it and have it shipping back to me [​IMG] expecting a full refund of course.
