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,

    Here is a close-up of the Brioni I posted earlier. If anyone knows what the shinier thread is, that would be great! They're definitely not stains.

    Ljubljana is my absolute favorite city in Europe. I was in Slovenia for a 3 week trial, and fell in love with the city. Walk down the center of the town with the river on either side with beautiful blonde college students in every outdoor pub. All of them wanted to practice English with me! They told me when Yugoslavia broke up, Russian was not taught in schools anymore but they changed it to English.

    I tell my wife if she goes first I am moving there... Not sure why she always says I am not as funny as I think I am.

    Finding something that is EXACTLY what I've been looking for but in the WRONG size. Exhibit A and B:


    [​IMG]

    This jacket is awesome. Double vented, half-canvassed, roped shoulders, BLACKWATCH. Not my size.

    Shoutout to Hooker4186 for trading me an awesome Gitman Vintage shirt. Love it! :slayer:

    2 out of 4 stores gave out today. Third stop yielded these Alden for BB black loafers in a 9 D (available).

    The Charvet Fairy made a stop at the last stop. A local thrift store that rarely produces anything worth buying. Almost always filled with Croft & Barrow and Arrow shirts, though. Never seen anything of this caliber at this store before besides a Brioni for Wilkes Bashford dress shirt 3 years ago.

    14 sweaters total. All Eu 52. All cashmere/silk.

    I recently thrifted a shirt from "Giorgio's of Palm Beach" made in Italy. Does anyone know anything about this shop or more specifically who makes shirts for them? It has details similar to my Borrelli shirts (hand sewn collar & shoulder, chicken-foot buttons, white pockets for the collar stays, etc) the only thing missing is the stitch half way up the placket.

    The info is not critical as it is a beautiful shirt that fits me perfectly, but would be interested to find out more details.
