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,

    And then realize that he was super excited over a Beau Brummel? Yeah, I know that feeling well. I may or may not have become a bit (more) :paranoia: since this hobby started.

    That'd be pretty cheap, 'round these parts.
    If it fits you well, you will use it and doesn't stretch your budget, then go for it.

    Popped up on my CL radar, for any OTP North Atlanta folks: 12 ties incl. 9 Brioni allegedly in perfect condition for $150 (not me selling, don't know who the seller is - to quote Shep Proudfoot "Never heard of him. Don't vouch for him.")

    Why can't the TJ Max by job carry these brands. That's a hell of a deal for stunning tie. And I love Dolcepunta. One of my favoriate brands.

    A few more things worth sharing:

    Barbour, made-in-England camouflage sweater. Military issue, although I'm not sure if it's Canadian or English. I can't find any others on the 'net, though I'm sure they're around somewhere:

    Marlboro western vest. Leather outer shell, wool inner shell:

    Riding boots w/ lasts/trees. Check out the nail pattern on the outsoles. That's not a welt--they're nails.

    No pics yet, but I got two Forme D'Expression coats from a legit thrift... and black achilles mids (which are a meager find in comparison to the coats)...

    So afterward I went to a sample sale and picked up two pairs of shoes for myself [​IMG]

    KVA Surgery Sneakers and Cazabat Combat Boots [​IMG]

    My wife is on her way back from Chicago (way too long of a drive for a Pearl Jam concert, IMO) and she stopped by the popup sale to see if there was anything worth getting. I think all the amazing shoe finds are gone, but she did pick me up some things at 90 percent off, so we'll see what she brings home.

    It's actually in your territory, I saw it at the Red White and Blue in Waterbury on Thursday on my way to Jersey. It is too small for me, I think it was a 40 and I am a 44.

    Only at the GW........I wanted a pair of these as a boy when the Bruins won the Cup in '72, but my Parents couldn't afford them.
    Great way to daydream back 40+ yrs. for less than a sawbuck!!

    My God.....Last time I saw that many high-end ties was when I was in Neiman Marcus before they closed. I haven't found a tie worth buying in months.
    Sounds like it could be a hot spot for high end audio gear. A big plus that it seems nobody there knows what the stuff is!
    Can't wait for pics! :bounce2:

    I was in the Neimans at Lenox (Atlanta) yesterday. Tons of Drakes (passed on two grenadines) Charvet Kiton Isaia Tom Ford Cucinelli all 60% off. I was drooling the entire time. The only things I did pick up were at the 70% off sale at H. Stockton: $6 marcoliani socks and $50 slim fit house label pants.

    You ATL dudes are luuuucky.

    That is going to be my new route, I have face to face meetings with a customer once a month and I am going to start stopping off there [​IMG]. They had some good stuff, I will warn you after I pillage the place so you don't waste your time for a few days. [​IMG]

    SO WE CAN DO A MEETUP. Jeez, relax. You're :paranoia:

    (No seriously, would love to meet up. Swamped with work and kids, but drop me a line)

    I will, I met Brian for a few minutes in Dirty Jersey to drop off a few things for consignment which was the first SF member I have met. While I was expecting someone nicely dressed, he surprised me with the top hat! (That is the State Farm French Model in case he looks familiar)
