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,

    Of course in the last month they get rid of the Tanner Goods waxed camera bag I've had my eye on forever hoping for a discount. So tempted on the Alden boots but no money for that.

    $20? I thought you meant $50+ by marked up. Were they actually in bad condition or did they just need some TLC (some conditioning and a fresh coat of polish)? If in poor condition, I'd consider it a good pass, even if they are EG. Dealing with damaged clothes or shoes is usually not worth the trouble.

    So remember a few weeks back I got a deal on this deaf rich guys stuff, I finally started to go thru some of the stuff, this guy had an insane collection of ties, so far I counted 70 Hermes ties another 70 charvet 30 Gucci, 40 t&a 15 sulka some ferragamos brooks brothers purple label then comes the savile row shit, Henry Poole, huntsman, harvie hudson, dege skinner, benson clegg, Chester Barrie, it goes on and on and on plus Paris bespoke and us made bespoke its literally a vintage sartorial wet dream of ties, plus he seemed to like grenadines. On to the squares and scarves got 8 Hermes squares like 10 charvet a few cool charvet Bowties turnbull scarves and squares, arnys, gieves, etc then a swaine adeney umbrella, a zilli crazy print lined trench, Hermes print robe, t&a insane coat as well as a crazy silk lining charvet, a very recent loro piana cashmere lined raincoat, wooden cartier glasses in case insane i still need to research a lot of these names I haven't heard of, but suffice it to say I I don't make PTO on these it's a gross miscarriage of justice. Ill link up pics after I take them

    GMMcL - amazing haul! Wow!


    Wow! Most I've ever done is 30 and that is pushing it for me. I can't even imagine....


    I can't even imagine if he hand wrote the addresses like I do. Talk about writer's cramp!



    :slayer:

    So today was decent. I stopped by a local discount store to see a beautiful pair of wingtips in a glass display case. I thought "Wait a minute, they only usually only put women's Louboutins and Jimmy Choos in these cases. These must be special." I look at them closer and see that they are indeed very special.

    Of course I didn't have the $888 to spend on them that they wanted, discounted from the $2,600 retail price. :fu:


    Stuff I did get today. Still for the life of me cannot figure out why my pictures are uploading sideways.

    MTM T&A shirts. Measures 17 x 34/35

    Still dry around my parts so I've been hitting the t-shirt racks. Found this Hank Williams, Jr 1991 tour shirt printed on screen stars.

    A grail find for me - I love jackets like this. Fits perfectly. Basically NWOT. Dual vent, elbow patches. PRL Italy.

    This ain't bad either - fits alright, but headed to eBay. Hopefully this weekend I'll post some stuff I've found over the last few weeks.
