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.

    Found some cool vintage Bally almost-wholecut oxfords.

    And some NWT Private Stock Denim raw selvedge. Don't know anything about this brand except that they're based in Hong Kong and use Japanese denim. Some interesting / out-there details like the company name on the selvedge, pleated back pockets with the red lining inside the pocket etc. Anyway.

    Any fly fisherman out there? Picked up a couple barbour shirts for myself today, pics to come later but I also picked up a wool Paul Stuart tie with flies on it. I'm not a fisherman but it was to nice to let go. Red. Looking to give it a good home, free to anyone who will use it!

    First time I've ever found these cool orange and brown boxes. Best part is that they had stuff in them. :D

    This is my first attempt at posting from my phone so forgive me if goes horribly wrong. I just wanted so show this SC from yesterday. It should measure out between a 42 and 44L. Should be available if anyone interested. Aside from this I've only found a handful on recent club Monaco shirts a couple APC shirts and vintage BB shirts.

    Hamilton, Ontario, Canada - Home of Coppley. Had a sample sale $150 SC, $300 Suits, $60 Trousers, $25 Clearance Blazers.

    Picked Up these 7 Clearance Blazers, came out to just under $200. All fantastic Blazers, 5 are Coppley, 2 are Hickey freeman, Linen mostly, a few are Double Breasted, most are 1/4 lined, most are of Zegna Cloth...
    Basically this is a sartorial wet dream for me today.
    More photos to come!

    After a long dry spell (and I mean long - haven't found anything worth mentioning really in months), I had a good haul today.


    **Edit** Some photos are showing upside-down or sideways for me. If so, I apologize. Not sure why as they are rotated correctly on my computer. Too tired to try and fix it so if you wish, just tilt your head slightly to view correctly.

    Hermes stuff. Missed out on about 8-10 more ties, something else in a box and a scarf. Mostly chain link and non-critter patterns.

    Some more ties. Knit ties by Paul Stuart and Ben Silver. Ferragamo butterly tie and Lords ascot. Passed on about 20 Vineyard Vines ties and a whole bunch of knit ties (Polo RL, Dunhill, Holland & Holland, etc). Kicking myself hard but had no choice. Was out of money.

    Shirts. All RLPL except for one Paul Stuart.

    More shirts. RLPL and two NWT/NWOT Hanro undershirts.

    Couple pairs of shoes. Can anyone ID these Polo benchmades? C&J?

    Anyone need a watch winder? Mint/unused (still has the plastic film on the knob) Wolf Designs single watch winder.

    Same one here:

    Picked up this Foster & Sons leather briefcase to pass on to a SFer for cost+gas+shipping if they want to try and revive it. It's not too bad as is. Paid up but still a steal for what it is.

    Don't make me regret my generosity! :uhoh:
    Yeah, I imagine I could've gotten more than my money back, but if you check the sold listings on eBay, despite a few examples of $100+, the average is not that high. At any rate, I have yet to make any contributions to the good folks of this thread, so if I can offer someone a good deal, I'm happy.

    Brag - NWT for $20!!!! (Retail is $225) from Nordstroms (FYI they just started the 40% off + 20% off sale today)
