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.

    Yeah, most are beat to hell that you find out there. I honestly like Tod's a lot, but I wouldn't really buy them used (for myself). These are for kids (size 28). I'd never seen them before and they were cheap enough to grab.

    Definitely! That label has a cool "hobos of the apocalypse" vibe that I really like but could never pull off.

    There is a demand for them; I'd def want a pair in my size..the only issue is that they rarely are found in good shape. They are usually worn right out, or demand a large price.

    Good Deeds cont....

    Gave a burberry pullover to a lady visiting chi from nj. Got three LuLu pants from another shopper.


    Went to my reg store , saw five mint canali shirts behind the counter . Nice fabric but not my size. Walked around for a bit and found my first isaia jacket. looked all over the store for the pants no luck. Saw some guy with his son looking for dress shirts. Told him about the shirts behind the counter. Turned my cart around and behold the pants ....

    YES! One of the holy grains of swd finds. Up there with visvim. If you feel like passing them on to a thread member, and are a 33ish, send me a pm. However they will fetch very good eBay money, the likes of which I couldn't offer you.

    Nothing that exciting from a lunch time stop. An Hermes tie (yay!) with a big coffee spill on the blade (boo), a couple of useful shirts (Etro, Pink, BB) and a staple charcoal BB suit (untagged, guessing it is around a 44-46). I'll get some picks up after work.

    Probably best to post in the tailors thread if you haven't already, but off the top of my head, the shoulders do look slightly wide for your frame. Pants need hemming, but the back could probably be cleaned up a bit as well. Jacket length is good, but the quarters are really closed/square looking. Makes you look a bit boxy. Some nipping at the waist might help the silhouette. Beautiful suit though. IMHO worth a trip or two to the tailor's to try and get it just right.

    Agreed. Some appropriate footwear would have been useful re: pants length, though.
    Well done!

    Is that unvented? before you put a bunch of money into making it fit correctly, make sure you are cool with wearing a slightly dated style. just my $0.02

    Hermes with coffee stain on blade (kinda visible in middle of 2nd photo, more prominent in real life). I think if folded carefully the stain is invisible, will have to play. All available for trade.

    Brooks Brothers Suit (measures 23" pit to pit, trousers are 18" across the waist). Single vent, great nick. Any information about age/model type from union tag? Not that exciting, but its a start.
