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,

    Hopefully the prices are better in Orlando at least. Whenever I visit family in Portland, I see crazy high prices at the Goodwills: $150 worn-out Allen Edmonds, $100 1990s Zegna orphans, $80 denim. Maybe those Kiton jeans slipped under the pricers' radar, but I wouldn't be surprised if they had a hefty "boutique" price tag.

    I believe that my main man Mexi got some of this action too. In true thrift fashion, we paid 50% off MSRP :wow:

    according to an AE thread contributor (who was informed by a manager at an AE retail store) they were made for the euro market but ended up not selling or they got cancelled or something (that part is hazy to me, i stopped reading and picked up the phone), which is how that one AE retail store ended up with them. they were all gone within a few days, almost completely to phone orders by SF'ers.

    Last day out for the Harris Tweed I'm afraid.
    Banana Republic shirt(thrifted by me)
    Thomas Pink tie(thrifted by me)
    Polo Ralph Lauren Khakis(thrifted by me)
    The jacket is too small in the shoulders but only just. I think I can get away with it for now.

    That doesn't look like a Zegna tag to me. Was the coat fully canvassed?

    Me either. I didn't check the jacket carefully. Quick feel of the lapel: either at least half canvassed or nice fusing. Once I knew I didn't want it myself I moved on quickly.

    Hey brosephs.

    I have been and will be mostly absent and sporadic at best for the next few months.

    While we were out of town, my daughter (yes, three daughters) came very early at 28 weeks. And the complications that caused it nearly took my wife (inorite? What is this, 1613??). So we are laid up with my incredibly strong and resilient wife recovering and my baby in the nicu.

    Please send thoughts, prayers and whatever you believe in; we're out of the woods, but it will be a long and windy road home.

    But most of all, keep poasting awesome stuff. Thrifting will be a rare treat, and posting even rarer. So I will live vicariously through you guys for a while.

    But don't think this gives ANYONE permission to fish my waters, or that it any way negates my permadibs on 42R, 36 x 30, 16.5 x 34, 10.5-11D.

    Yeah, it's been there for at least two months. I asked what color tag was half off today... They *might* be worth it at half off.
