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,

    Thanks guys! These are some of the softest, nicest sweaters I've ever handled. On par with the Cucinelli cashmere 1/4 zip I found several years ago. The guy donated more. MZHammer found 3 more several weeks back from who I'm almost positive was the same donor. Wonder if he donated any suits, jackets or dress shirts.....
    :slayer:
    :drool:
    Nice! :slayer:
    That is one insane thrift fit! Lookin' good, man. Forme d'expression in a thrift still blows my mind. Wow!
    They're available too. :spam:
    Wow - Outlieir is a grail for me. Nice find!
    That's insane. I second Spoo - I've never seen 1/40 before. That's crazy that all three are 1/40 too! I wonder how the owner managed to get those.
    Score on the Ann D! If that's the store I think it is (by your work), that place was pure garbage this morning. There were like 5 big-time flippers there all running around looking pretty irritated and all were empty handed. :laugh: I almost bought a pair of women's Persols just to have something to make my gas back but the lenses were pretty scuffed up.

    Normally I'd be fairly proud of today's stuff, but you guys have been absolutely blowing it away. I feel like I picked up a bunch of Haggar or Stafford...

    crappy pics ahead.

    Firs Luciano Barbera tie I've found. Is Sartoriale a thing? Not Pal Zileri, but wasn't sure - says 100% silk, made in Italy.

    How old is that BB tie? kinda crazy that its NWT.

    Picked up some BB shirts that I will pass to some of our more tradly brethren. Vintage, made in USA, unlined collars, all that good stuff.

    Awesome Vintage Silk-Screened Canvas Poster of the Chesapeake Bay/Eastern Shore. I love finding relevant classroom decorations on the cheap! I also went to school on the Eastern Shore which makes this doubly cool for me.

    Pretty amazing stuff recently. Makes me feel like I should get outta this college town.

    A couple things I liked.

    Bobby Jones Blazer

    Boss Wool/Cashmere

    Is that boss an old tag? I try not to pick up Boss anymore but I liked the color and the tag intrigued me, plus 75% off. Was it a decent pick up for like a couple bucks?

    Awesome first post! Glad to see you read through a bunch of the thread first. That's the way to do it! :fonz: The rest of you guys, I don't even know what to say, fucking fantastic! I also want to give a shout out to Wes yet again for being one of the best dudes on this thread. I've finally got the tux I've been looking for, so fucking badass. Pic to come.

    LOL, JP

    dude, this thread is EN FREAKING FUEGO! Making me super jelly that I can't go out as much, and that the summer doldrums are in full effect when I do.

    Outlier in a thrift, even if it is the 60/30 chinos is ridiculously rare. A+.

    DM7, that fit looks great. A big leap from your prom fit.
