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.

    Cheers,

    Sup homies! Its been awhile, I had a decent haul I didn't post and is already at my ebay employees :(, nothing too earth-shattering though. However, who wants navy knits? I have 2, one cotton and one silk, and i've realize i just don't have the swag to pull off a knit. More importantly, WHO CAN ROCK A 49L/50L AND WANTS A BUSINESS SUIT WARDROBE? STAX, IM LOOKING AT YOU AND YOUR J.A.B. (SOLID NAVY, SOLID GREY BIRDSEYE, GRAY PINSTRIPE, AND SOME OTHER SOLID, OLIVEISH I THINK) 3x Recent Oxxford, 1x Recent HF Bespoke. If someone tells me to post this in the buy/sell/trade thread, ill slap your face off. I paid a decent amount for them at a thrift, but im not looking to make much if someone can actually wear them, i mean how often can one procure a business wardrobe in one fell swoop?
    PS Props to GMMCL, great guy. (I love finding shit from the homies on Ebay).

    Two more things:

    Maker-Unknown canvas-and-leather bag. The trim is all high-quality calf--possibly glove leather--without any cardboard. Calf on the straps and ID case. But no maker. This was a retirement gift that the previous owner, according to a Google search, no longer needs.

    And one for the UFO tags thread if someone wants to cross-post. Thrifts are so scared of underpricing Levi's that even these were $15.

    It was a few bucks so I picked up just from pure intrigue.

    I can't tell if that was sarcasm but it's Hermes Sport. If it was sarcasm it actually says Hermes Spoo.

    Nah it;s quite small. I wear a 38 and it doesn;t fit me. I think it's a 36 at largest. I also think it might be a womans. It's extremely tight on my shoulders.

    Here's a kinder, gentler answer to the question:

    http://www.anaffordablewardrobe.blogspot.com/2013/06/reader-questions-on-orphans.html

    I agree that one can probably flip based on name alone, as The Captain has amply demonstrated, but that only proves that buyers can be naive.
