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.

    I will, I really dont even know where to start with this. Im so overwhelmed, and that does not happen often. Its epic. Not so much brands- theres plenty of BBGF, Isaia, Paul Stuart, Southwick etc. but the unique tweeds, 40's and 50's bespoke stuff, Brooks Brothers custom from '53 (!!) 1941 tux jacket... I mean, Im floored. I will get pics eventually.

    Mrs. Spoo tipped me off to the haul, I would have missed it totally, shes defo a keeper :)

    It was 250 NWT belts, thanks. :nodding:

    And those are much smaller than jackets.

    Are these labels worth looking at?

    Oh, and someone was after a small (?) soft shell jacket? This is Schoeller WB400 fabric from EMS.

    No east coast raids planned in the near future.

    I was thinking more along the lines of a flash simulpost.

    Proxy available on this Mountain Hardwear canvas jacket, medium, $15 + tax and shipping. It's a little boxy.

    Nor a west coast for me.

    I wish I had time to get all pics done for you, but the tweeds likely wont get shot until september, and the current stuff I have to sparse over a few weeks. Ill try though.

    Also, next weekend will be very, very, very, very busy for me. Deets soon. :devil:

    Yes. Always.

    Beautiful. Looking to add a 1911. Let me know how it does. I have heard Kimbers can be picky and they have that weird "key" thing. Great craftsmanship and gorgeous. I want one so badly.
    Pics. Needed. Now.

    Nice finds!! I love that Jimmie Rogers debut LP.
    :slayer: Nice!! I'm down. We're moving into our new house this week but after we get settled and I get some "move-in projects" (painting, some immediate yard work, etc) out of the way I'll be free. Besides the range that is super close to where my old place is, we could even go up to my secret shooting spot where there are lots of free targets (old refrigerators, furnaces, bottles and jugs galore, etc).
    :lurk: And what an excellent 70k post to boot!
    :lurk: Unfortunately for me today plain out sucked. Struck out at every stop. Not only that, but I found out that two local flippers made out with about 20 recent suits by Stefano Ricci, Zegna, Brioni and Isaia from one of my daily stops. Not to mention ties from the same makers. All donated by the CEO of Dept 56. Ugh. Made my day that much worse. Ignorance is bliss, my friends. :fu:

    To those who expressed interest in the Oxxford... I'll get back to you on Monday with more pics and measurements. I'm out of town for a running race until late Sunday.
