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.

    Never find belts (or belt straps) so this was a real treat! There were a few other decent bets but worn to death. These two looked to have very little wear.

    E-thrift. Vintage Brooks Brothers peacoat. Not sure how old, but at least '50s, maybe older. I need to email Brooks and see if they can give me more info.

    Gap Selvedge.... but never seen a pair with a "back belt"? So not a jean snob, what is the technical term for this?

    The Walgreens down the street had a bin of pretty decent looking socks 5 for $5. After taking the distributor tags off I was surprised to find J. Crew and BR. Not bad for a buck a piece. Going back tomorrow. Might want to check yours.

    Saw and passed on two cool Aquascutum suits in size 44 at a Philly area thrift store. PM me if you want deets.

    I think they were priced about $20 each.

    Living in TX now, no need-ever, but man... that thing is good looking. I like the home for the choker on the inside of the jacket. Just the fact that the choker is still there after 60+ years.

    Oh man, I'm really happy this hoodie runs a couple sizes small. Fits more like a true L/slim XL. It's a keeper. :D

    Part 5: The guy who is the same size as me, so NA. I left behind 3 suits because NO REASON. Well, they wanted like $20 for the Vestimenta [​IMG] and I already have a DB tux (But not a Paul Stuart one [​IMG]).

    First, this Zegna looks kinda funny. fabric feels good, but no tags other than those shown. Just old?

    Some Flat front Zanellas. I can wear these, but they have a very *deep* crotch. If you are in the neighborhood of 32x34, have enormous testes and need some wool pants, let me know. Look at that button.

    I've got some more stuff, but I feel like I'm spamming at 1:30 am! good night.

    Edit: combined previous posts per caseyfud and flagged the tailings. Sorry, was throwing crap on the empty forum. I've had problems posting pictures before, was trying to keep it compact, not spread out. Achieved the opposite.
