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.

    Alden for Brooks captoes (need to do some work on one toe), Britches of Georgetown (originally thought they were Alden, then thought C&J, then Alden, now think might be C&J again. Apparently Britches used to carry for EG, so I'm pretty sure it's something quality from the nail pattern. Waiting for ID thread dudes to do their magic).

    I couldn't leave these Florsheim Royal Imperial scotch grain longwings behind. Amazing condition, 5 nails, and I assume there's a v-cleat hiding under that heel topper. But they're 8.5 D - a size too small for me, and I'm not 100% confident I'll be able to earn more than the $28 I spent if I flip them. SO, I'll send them to anyone on this forum who'll pay cost plus shipping, as long as you let me know by Saturday night. Otherwise, I'm returning them. Ping me if interested. Sorry, interested folks. They've been dibsed.

    1, but go with white shirt and folded white linen pocket square. also, not really relevant to the current discussion, but i think you should bring the hem up on your pants...clean those lines up a bit.

    I didn't say I like the color, but its a very well-constructed tie. And I got it at one of the closest thrifts to home.

    Spoo, aren't those Lobb Randolphs or someshit, I think you were trying to sell them awhile back and i always admired them. Also, what shirt did you rock with the last pic, it looks to have the beginnings of a really epic fit. Also, Hawaiian shirt, Pink pants, blue shoes... You sir are indeed a cold ass honkey.
    On to the 2nd portion of my haul. (Honestly, I was disappointed by this week, didn't get the volume I normally do (although I, like everyone has grown more picky) and certainly didn't have a signature sort of item that I normally encounter, no RLPL or Brioni tailored pieces etc.
    (Sorry my pics have been so shit lately, but it really does take a bit of time as you all know. I outsource all my photography and listings now, so its not worth it to me to reuse them. )
    Borrelli (peep game, super bleached/weak label), more BReid 16 FC dress shirt.
    [​IMG]
    JPress 42R Presstige (fits me just an inch or 1.5' too long) :(. It has some wear, but nothing terrible. I left an identical jacket that had some pretty apparent dryer sheen.

    Canali 40S. How recent is this Saks label? I want to say this is pretty dang recent.

    AE Sneakerish design, actually pretty cool considering the AE quality and that you could wear them about as casually as you wanted, and still look decent if dressed up a bit.

    My 2 Fav's of this lot for last. Paul Smith Shoes 9D sweet! Insoles not pictured, but in good shape if not great shape given the size of the design.

    Think your pants could benefit from a slight taper. My feeling is with that look, slimmer = youthful and dandyish, and wider = old guy who's been wearing this for decades. Also a bit matchy on the tie / square.

    I too would say #1, but that might be because you look really uncomfortable in pics 2 and 3 (especially 3). Also yeah, swap out bucks for loafers. And do you really need an SC for this? Feel like it would look better with just the shirt (see Spoo's pics above).

    Yessir, well done!

    Is Agnes B worth a pickup? Retail seems ridiculous so I'd guess so?
