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.

    Is this the good Caraceni? Or some lesser, unrelated maker?

    I think the use of that word caused a massive derail either in this thread or elsewhere at some point.

    ^^^ Yup, I remember that one. It was a while ago.
    This is an awesome find! That patina is great! :slayer:
    Nice!! Looks like an awesome suit, too!
    I feel your pain. About 70% of the time I'd be able to reunite an orphan. Now it's like 20% of the time. Not sure what's going on...

    The Huntsman is a size large but potentially workable with surgery. But check out those lapels!

    Am I crazy to be more excited about this vintage rayon shirt, a custom Hong Kong job?:

    Whoops. Apologies to anyone who took offense, then. I was just attempting to find an appropriate rhyme, not be provocative. I assure you the word is still in heavy rotation among my core peer group, having featured prominently in our ninth grade English studies vis a vis the book 1,000 Most Important Words. I still get a little electic nostalgic tingle whenever I drop it.

    I'll have to search for this derail.

    In other news, big thanks to GMMcL for the trade (my first bucks!), and to those expecting snail mail surprises, are they imminent? I can't say. That is a surprise.

    Picked up some nice ivory suede shoes today. They might not be conservative enough for me, but I'll give them a try.

    After scrolling through the last few pages, I kept thinking... Am I gutsy enough to wear them without socks? The quick resounding answer was continually "NO!" :)

    Seems to be a newer label for Bally? Model = Topik and made in Italy.

    I really do hate to be picky but: The placket is still visible, it's only the buttons that are hidden. It's called a fly-front

    Finally caught up with the thread, so let me say - good job everyone, with everything!

    Thrifting around here has been light lately, nothing too special.

    Spent some time in Palm Springs rocking this dandy pair of trousers I got off of EBay:

    [​IMG]

    And here's today's thrift fit:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    Jacket: Brooks Brothers Linen (Ebay)
    Shirt: Charvety (thrift)
    Tie: Zegna (thrift)
    Square: Polo (Ebay)
    Pants: Incotext (thrift)
    Shoes: Alden for BB (thrift)

    That would be me! Thought I would experiment with the medium a bit.

    I stumbled on yours (http://stuffifoundtoday.tumblr.com) and thought, I recognize those photos...

    Anyone else on here have a tumblr to follow?
