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.

    JPG might not have quite the panache it used to, but it's still a pretty cool find. If you don't feel like flipping and those measure anywhere near a 34/32-infinity, get at me.

    Right back at you! Great jacket going to a great home...hope it worked out well at the wedding
    +1. I learned this the hard way a while back and dumped way more $$$ into a thrifted suit to make it look just ok when i should have just flipped it and picked up a better fitting suit which needed less alterations in the first place (trying to make a 41L into a 40R/S was an expensive mistake)
    Thrift/mudder synergy is strong...i earned my shirt on Saturday as well... [​IMG] I thrifted and posted this old barbour (pre-liddesdale?) about 6 months ago but thought it deserved a re-post...it was in rough shape when i og picked it up. 60% of the quilting coming undone, patch hanging on by one side but it was a barbour and i couldn't pass it up. Wore it for a few weeks in the fall then called Barbour CS to see if i could pay to rescue the piece. Long story short I shipped my jacket to Barbour and they re-quilted the entire thing for FREE (re-wax is a different story from what i hear)...a bit weak on the CS communication but all in all i was shocked and happy that they stood behind their product. Will definitely be picking up any and all barbour i see no matter the condition [​IMG] [​IMG] Still recovering from the mudder but a quick casual 100% thrift fit from mother's day [​IMG] [​IMG] Barney's coop knit cardigan Made in Italy BB v neck private member summer chinos John Varvatos USA suede chukka boots

    Damn it. Stitching in the middle was kind of pulling apart.

    Was sad to let some of these blazers go, but they were purchased in poor condition only for their buttons. The golden fleece was the hardest to do.


    The harvest.....

    I bought a few for the buttons but haven't had the heart to harvest them yet. I know that they are set for my dog's crate when the buttons come off... He has amazing taste in clothing... :)

    Los_Face, I thrifted that same barbour a few months ago, it has since become one of my most used articles of clothing. Perfect for that transition weather. :slayer:

    Thanks for the feedback, as much as I have wanted a canali for a while I belive that there is just 2 much to do and as I am just starting out in trying to build a nice wardrobe on a budget any tailor I would use I cannot even be sure of the quality of the work .

    Oh well onto Ebay it goes

    Thanks again guys
