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.

    For the record these retail from anywhere between ~220-300+. I don't expect the SF crowd to be big into the faux gator, but those were selling the best on Ebay so I snagged a lot of them. TBH as a gator afficianado these are some of the best looking faux gator i've seen, which makes sense because MD does work with real gator on occassion. For the price you'll be hard pressed to find better summer shoes. These are all current season, and while most are 1sts there are some 2nds in the mix. If you inquire about your size and style i'll let you know if its a 2nd. The 2nd's have all been identified by the factory with stickers/arrows pointing out the flaw, the majority of the time, even with the help, im not really sure whats wrong with them, most others have a loose stitch, or some mark on the inner portion of the shoe (who cares?).
    EDIT: Ill fux wid some trades if you've got cool shit in my sizes (check sig)

    Stunning shoes. And great prices for relatively known brand that offers high quality products. I've owned both a MD belt and wallet. I still have the wallet. I sold 2 belts that matches the pattern in photo #7.

    I look forward to thrifting this weekend with JP here in Dallas. This will be my first SF meet up. I don't think we will find a haul like this one.

    This is probably 5 weeks worth of finds, though a lot of the below was picked up yesterday on a quick run through some stores when I had a couple of hours to fill while my wife was at yoga. I got pretty lucky as every store was turning up good stuff, which hadn't been the case for some time.

    Sorry, but nothing is available and I can't respond to requests for size or measurements.

    Malo suede jacket - like new. beautiful jacket. moss green.

    RLPL suit - like new
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    RLBL tuxedo
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    RLBL suit - different size and store from the above.

    Brioni suit with a very subtle pattern - older, but barely worn, if at all, condition.
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG][​IMG]

    Brioni dinner jacket - found this one week
    [​IMG]


    and the next week found this: Brioni tuxedo jacket - never found the pants
    [​IMG]

    Chester Barrie for Carroll & Co cashmere jacket - waited a month for this to go 1/2 off.

    Aquascutum tweed - special in that it's a very slim fit, something I never thought I'd find. I can't believe I actually found a tweed coat that fits me.

    Schott leather jacket - very little wear

    Iknorite? Why can't I find any Bijan? I want to buy one of those shirts, just so I can check it out... I figure my odds of finding are about 0%.

    Recent Coppley and T. Pink tie

    Coppley is my first (cherry popped) and (for now) unavailable. Love the pattern (been looking for that type of subtle windowpane for a while) and it either fits me like a glove or is just too tight around the belly (and I'm still shedding weight, slowly admittedly). If any 46's are in love though, get at me.

    That donor also dropped off plenty of other nice-ish stuff, but not worth picking up. Left behind a light grey J Press pinstriped suit as there was some pretty notable moth damage to one shoulder (sleeves were way too short for me and while might have been repairable, wasn't going to try to flip like that), staple Hilditch & Key shirt as it had collarpin holes (have to imagine that limits flippability), and a Calvin Klein overcoat. Normally wouldn't give CK a second look, but it was still very soft, 5% cashmere, my size, and a color I don't have (brown). But I've already got 2 overcoats, and I wasn't going to drop $40 to fill my closet with a third.

    Wow, you LA guys are killing it lately! Still slow up here. Found some Lululemon stuff for my wife and a NIB (vintage) Le Creuset chocolate fondue. Also a recent label (tan w/ the crest) Hickey Freeman spread collar casual shirt for myself. Nothing really worth taking pictures of.
