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,

    I'd be willing to bet your Lambskin and Lizard jacket was made for A.F. by Remy.

    E. Zegna couture shirt (new, de-tagged);

    E. Zegna partially lined jacket;
    [​IMG]

    No tags, but possibly silk/cashmere? (i'm no good at fabric compositions, but it's unbelievably soft and has a sheen to it).
    Could possibly be this from 2012 runway;

    You fellas out there with wife's know how hard it is to find things for them whilst out thirfting. My wife had actually been stalking ebay for a red equestrian jacket with little luck. Yesterday I found this beauty from a hole in the wall Sally that sometimes produces gems. Judging from the tags and buttons, I'm thinking it's from the 50's or 60's. Fully canvassed wool/tweed puppy-tooth with a hand attached velvet collar and in mint condition. It looks black and white from a distance but up close you can see it's actually olive and light green plaid. The best part is that it fit's her like a glove, even in the sleeves, which usually fall short. And she LOVES it, which always makes me happy.

    I will be out of thrifting commission for a while as I will be taking a business trip/vacay. Prolly just as well since things have been kinda quiet in these parts. I will probably not thrift unless there is a store within walking distance of my hotels. I’ll continue to keep up with the thread I’m sure. Stay well, bros.

    shiny, nice haul! Like that RLPL.

    Two pairs of Lobbs in a matter of days? I've got to go out for the hat trick.

    I want to give a huge shout to ATLJon for hooking me up with my first Isaia piece for next to nothing! Such a beautiful garment, thanks again good sir. And another shout out to silverwarebandit for a tip on where to pick up a Barbour coat on the cheap. Thanks dude! My wife is stoked she can finally have my Liddesdale. :cheers: :fistbump:
