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.

    Tiecrafters. I would not recommend the "method" on ties.

    I've also had good luck with just plain Woolite in a dilute solution, dabbing and not rubbing too roughly.

    Thanks, G and eazy! I think I might try both. I've also been itching to try the bow tie conversion service, though I...don't wear bow ties. (I'd think that would be a godsend for pnut, though -- lots of great tie fabric out there).

    I think the blurred photo is actually a touch artsy. You could call it a stylistic photo if you really wanted to.

    I think the pants and the coat go together awesome.

    You might have too many stripped patterns going on elsewhere. I think a guy could pull together a ton of good outfits with those pants and coat though - seems like a great base setup.

    Awesome! I also left a pair of Alden branded tassel loafers because of a huge gash right through the leather. :fu:

    Wes, any insight on these? I picked them up off ebay long before I joined SF and since getting into clothes seriously, I've always wondered who the maker was. Doesn't appear to be Alden.

    I'm on a Mrs. Pnut- enforced bow tie diet. When the most recent shipment arrived courtesy of Peter Blair (they were having a sale--just $10 per tie--I spent more than $200) it became clear that I have a problem. But thanks for thinking of me.

    I actually found 2 or 3 pairs of those in different colors. Never could figure them out, and there was no insight given on them in the HOF Heel Pattern thread either....sorry.


    Found this at lunch....one of the decent labels, right?

    I agree with green_machine. I recently came across a few pairs of deadstock Florsheims in smaller sizes (7.5 and 8). Mind you they were in perfect condition... but sold to Japanese buyers on eBay between $170 - $220.

    BTW - they are beautiful.

    Found this Luciano Monti shirt at a thrift store the other day, does anyone have any info on the label? Removable cuffs, giant collar stays, side gussets(not pictured) and a bib on the inside. The only Luciano Monti I can find is an Italian photographer.

    Yea, I can't seem to figure them out either. Oh well, they will continue to be a mystery then. And yes, that is one of the sought after 60/40 parkas. I've found 4 of those over the last year or so. I kept the best one for myself and let the others go to the bay. They always do well. :fonz:

    in my humble e-pinion, a bow tie sends the message that, hey world, i don't have large balls, i don't have a big swinging dick.
