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.

    Wandering the women's section when I spy this on the rack of clothes people have tried on and left behind...

    The slick pattern is what grabbed my eye and told me to take a closer look.

    A good sign.

    Had a boys day today, took my two sons to our first estate sale and was fairly stoked by some of the buys. Also found out my youngest is a great negotiator [​IMG]We found 3 large buckets of Legos, and carried them downstairs. The guy asked for $30 for all of them and my son looks crestfallen and says no he is going to put them back and the guy gave him ~10lbs of Legos for $20. I found a few things for myself:

    100% Cashmere scarf and a J&M shoe tree + generic shoe tree which prompted the question from the wife why I need 14 sets of shoe trees...

    A Suit valet not sure what type of wood, maple I believe. Not really sure why I bought this...
    [​IMG]

    Also found 2 Samsonite Garment bags, 1 OK condition and the other brand new. Which is great because I made my first trip recently in my new position at work and drove down to New Jersey and covered my dress clothes with a f*ing Hefty Bag.

    We then took a trip over to my favorite Savers, not really much. I found a couple chinos (1 Banana Republic and 1 J Crew) for myself.

    1 Nerf gun for the kids $3

    Then finally what I have been searching for, a decent leather briefcase. Butter soft leather, only issue is a broken zipper and a scuff below that. Not sure if I can have that fixed but I can live with it, it is better than a back pack with a jacket or suit on. Getting a $500 briefcase for $8... Priceless

    More details from my thrift on Friday with the 2 D&G jackets, kris van assche and Corneliani. Here's pics of all but the Corneliani, becuase that bitch is already resting in my closet - I actually found a fray in it, so I can't sell it anyways. Good enough for me though. The rest are going up here or on the bay.

    not sure if a tie is appropriate for this pic, but I had about 13 suits and sc's to shoot today and didn't feel like changing it.

    Most of my B's are of that script but in blue. I have seen ones in black before. This was made in what? 80's?

    Ian, that fits you great. Well done. You need a cummerbund or vest, though. It's not OK to go without your waistband covered with a SB tux. And you need better shoes, too, but that's already been said.
    Bro, that jacket is not good. Those lapels are dated, and not in a good way. If you had them narrowed it might be better, but it's probably not worth spending that kind of money on what's probably a polyester jacket, if it's washable. Sorry. :confused: Oh, but the cufflink box is awesome!

    I have one of these too (from a thrift). Mine has a grooved shelf at the top to put your cufflinks, change, watch etc. Also, I read somewhere that after a long day, you should let your suit jacket rest to it can air itself out. Your pants, too. A few recent finds: 4x Hermes tiez. The bunny and the dove one have some stains, which I’m hoping my drycleaner can take out. [​IMG]

    NWOT PRL jeans. How do I know they’re NWOT? The front button still had that protective cap thing. [​IMG]

    Black suede Church’s hand made in fine shape. Tagged 9M. Made in Italy, though. [​IMG]

    You would love my Uncle's garage. He has a bunch of classics, some have never seen rain. I know he has a 69 COPO and he might have a Yenko. Been a while since I've had a look at them.

    Can anyone ID this Italy maker?
    It's pretty crappy but for $8 that fits like a glove it will make a decent bar hoping coat

    I passed on this, but I also want to make sure that it was the right decision

    EZ in some of the softest damn cotton ever. Does anyone know the name for cottons that basically feel like silk? I've run into it on Brioni before so I figure it's something I don't know about.
