    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.

    That shirt popped up on my feed, I was surprised it was still there 15 minutes later. Do you wear your shirts that roomy?

    Fishy went thrifting! Everything I grabbed this time has some bumps and bruises, but still seemed decent enough to grab.


    First off: A mystery! Anyone know who did MTM for Larimor's? This is a 2 roll 1 (Yes, 2 roll 1) jacket from god knows when, really awesome herringbone tweed with red, orange, and green windowpanes. Tons of handwork, but no indication who made it :/ Has a strained vent that needs some fixing - if anyone here wants this puppy I'll ship it to you at cost + shipping. Measurements after the jump!


    [​IMG]

    Here ya go!
    P2P 24"
    Waist 23"
    Shoulders 19.5"
    Sleeves 23" (Feels like there's a good 2" more to be had back there)
    Length - collar: 32"

    Damnit. Ah well my PP is drained currently so it's not like I could've grabbed it. Several drinks later and another pair of alden NSTs, this time with ripple soles? Never seen that on Alden's before, are these just old as hell or are they orthopedic?
