    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.

    Those are fantastic! The medallion on the toe box is especially beautiful. Well done. :nodding:

    Wondering if this winter-weight military double breasted coat I saw today is anything. Anyone know anything based on the tags?


    It was heavy and awesome, if that matters.

    Xenos: Insane stuff as always! Wow!


    It's no Tom Ford or Bijan, but it makes my day to find something I've been looking for and even contemplating spending retail price on. One of those things for me was a Stormy Kromer cap.

    Then today, I find this one, made for Orvis. The best part - it's my size! Still really want a red/black check one to match my Stormy Kromer mackinaw, but this is a very welcome addition to my closet.

    Picked up this Orvis Irish Wool Blackwatch Plaid driving cap. Probably from the same donor as the Kromer. Available.

    Finally catching up on the thread. Fuck beans, I get onto a feature length film and LA starts raining down the goods. Oh well, glad to see it picking up around here even if it's not ended up in my basket.

    Did manage to stop by a few shops in the limited time I've had. I had yet to make any denim purchases but I saw these and decided someone here might want them as a pair of starter selvedge...

    They were $12.50. I figured hey maybe someone here is a 36-32, decent trade bait. Got them home and measured them... 35-27.5 [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Traipsing through Xenos' and S_allen_P's leftovers, I happened upon Howie Long's wardrobe. Left behind everything other than this:

    Also, picked up these off Etsy for a song. No markings whatsoever, inside or out, so I have no idea on the maker, but they fit and fill a longtime want.

    Wes - any chance you can tell just by the look of them?

    Cotton Dockers, did you see the wool grey chalk stripe? That one was nice, soft and big.

    chiron, why do you think that's fake? Looks legit to me.

    Sorry, need more....

    That brogue pattern is pretty unusual. So you could spend most of the day looking to match that.

    That is a grail find IMO!!! I think they've been making these in China now.
    Awesome!!! How's the styling? Can we see more pics?
