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.

    +1 But fuck it! DO IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    If there's no condition issue, the price is right, and it fits you, go for it.
    Yip, those are the ones I had. I think KP is in doubt because it had the double Brioni printed under the fold. I've never seen it like that either. [​IMG]

    Just read through about 20 pages that I missed while on vacation the last 9 days and getting a strong urge to go out ASAP. Spent time in Wisconsin and Chicago and did very little thrifting but did do this...

    Surprise elopement on a foggy morning in Chicago last week!

    Some more finds from my dry spell. First, a pair of shoes I picked up since I posted my earlier shoe finds:

    Casa Costanza brown wholecuts (sadly available, size EU 40.5, but probably fit a US 8 D/E with a very high instep).

    [​IMG]
    I was hoping I could make these work with insoles, but the instep is too high for me. Has anyone ever heard of the brand? I looked them up, but only found women's shoes. They appear to be on the level of Ferragamo mainline (very nice leather, blake-constructed, made in Italy).

    [​IMG]

    I also passed on a pair of vintage shell French Shriner tassel loafers yesterday. They would have been my first pair of shell finds, but the size was pretty wonky (10 A), and they didn't fit me, so I didn't want to take a chance. They had moderate wear, and weren't in perfect condition, but far from beat (the soles looked original). Definitely vintage, though, the label still read "French Shriner & Urner."
    [​IMG]

    Anyway, on to my pants finds from my dry spell.

    Nudie Jeans Regular Ralf in the New Used Deluxe Wash, they look barely worn in great condition (available, tagged a 29/34)

    [​IMG]

    Mabitex heavy cotton fabric/cotton twill flat front dress pants (available, size EU 50/should be around 34 waist, will confirm)

    [​IMG]

    PRL 100% linen flat front pants (available, tagged a 32/30)

    [​IMG]

    Dries Van Noten light grey wide leg pleated pants (available, size EU 48)--any idea how old these are?

    Dries Van Noten navy wide leg pleated pants (available, size EU 48)

    Yup! Those Rugger gloves will be nice once the weather gets colder, I'm wearing one of the Nato straps as we speak and my wife took another one and I've never been a fan of avaitors, but these are facking sweet! My wife says I can't leave the house with them though. Living in boys town, she fears for my safety. :rotflmao:


    Congratulations! You should have hit me up! :nodding:

    This is fine when dealing with high-end men's clothing stuff (tailored, dress shirts, trousers, etc). but the high fashion world is a whole different ball-game. Most MC rules are thrown out the window.

    That thing is insane find though! Wow!


    Congrats, man! :cheers:

    Anybody recognize this label? I've cross checked it with all the ones I've got in the stable and the small database I've compiled with no luck. I know I've seen it before though.

    Might just burn one... haha in the name of clothing science!

    :happy:




    Thanks noob! I'm still iffy for the reason mentioned below.



    Yeah, that's my main cause of concern.

    We will see, if no one can definitely chime in by the end of the day, I'll probably sacrifice one of the three for a burn test. Thanks for all your help so far guys!

    I can't get a good look at that North Face, but it may be fake. Anyone else suspicious?
    Congrats!

    For the uninitiated, If I'm low on space is there a good way to elevate the TT and keep it above the receiver while reducing heat buildup?
