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.

    Brian...was behind a couple pages and saw your Isaia stuff....if I had a spare $900 laying around I'd so fire on the blue size 58 suit you have.

    They looked brand new. I just personally never had much luck and at 15-20per my margin would be slim at what they normally sell for me. Rather just help fellow members get some staples.

    Wow! Awesome haul, Hans!
    Really cool find! I stopped into a Ships store while in Tokyo last fall. Awesome store, but kind of pricey. As concealed said, this would have ran around $500 retail.
    :lol: DM7, you need to get to a BBQ joint if you're in KC! From what friends have told me, there are so many amazing BBQ places there.

    Spoo, you need to post more thrift fits. And a huge shout out to the Capt' for hooking me up with a fantastic pair of vtg LL Bean saddles and Mistermidwester for a sweet tweed Borsoliano hat, my first! :cheers:

    Picked up two Southwick suits - one of them a 3 piece suit (both in my size)

    Also found this. They had 4 similar coats, but I just snagged the one that looked best.

    Never heard of it before.. Trimingham's Bermuda? Has little brown ships on the buttons.. Certainly unusual...

    The ones that you find aren't missing a stud. Originally, only 3 studs came in a set as the cummerbund covered everything below the third stud. A fourth stud was added sometime in the last decade or two, I suppose because people were leaving the cummerbund off and needed the fourth stud to get to the jacket's button point.

    When the fourth stud was added to the set, it was not because it was needed, it was an extra stud within the set. Eventually times changed after having sets produced with 4, to be used. Good luck finding a proper 3 stud shirt these days, they all come 4 now. Unless of course u go bespoke.

    Some recent finds, with a few more from the last few months that I'm still going through.
    Note: Sorry, but none of these are available and I can't respond to requests for measurements.

    Vintage Lee blanket Lined Storm Rider - Still trying to lock down a date, but the union tag is circa 1935-55. Trying to find the definitive guide for the "Lee" labels since some sites suggest 60s for Lee pocket tag, and others don't.

    Well, I see that you've been slacking. Really minor finds.


    I'm jealous. These are awesome. Nice going!

    Wow, stunning finds all around. Very interesting to see a piece of Kiton that's not a suit, tie, shirt or pants.

    On my way back from a work function I swung by a place and lucked out.

    2x Ermenegildo Zegna SCs
    1x Oxxford SC
    1x PRL Navy SC
    1x Chester Barrie SC (my second one in the last couple weeks)
    1x Canali Navy SC

    1x Zegna dress shirt
    1x Burberry polo
    1x BB golden fleece polo


    They were having a sale, too. Grand total... $33 big ones :happy::happy:

    p.s., the two people to PM me on the navy brooks brothers golden fleece loro piana 130's SC couldn't work with the measurements, so as a reminder if anyone is interested let me know before tonight, as I will throw it on ebay later if not claimed (my cost + shipping). See below.

    Pit: 21
    Waist: 19.5
    Sleeve: 23
    Shoulder: 18.75

    Can anyone post a pic of one of these shirts with the studs displayed. I've never seen one.

    Big thanks to los_face for the Balderessini jacket (among other things). Just picked up from the tailor. Will post a fit pic asap (wearing it to a wedding this weekend).

    This one (to jog people's memory)...
