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.

    This is amazing! I've gotta start checking the wimmenz section. Also, navy grenadine is a grail find, no matter what tag.

    Do not cop unless it fits very well for you and have modern styling. There are tons of Harris Tweed out there. Only cop the ones with flipable makers (insert SF approved brands [​IMG]) if you want to flip. There are tons of Harris Tweeds on fleabay. Most are fused and very little to none handy work. I used to cop Harris Tweed but now, I pass most of the time. The best Harris Tweed I coped was one made by Paul Stuart. Awesome and stylish but wasn't my size...so I had to trade it. [​IMG]

    Let the drummer jokes begin! What do you say to a drummer in a three-piece suit? "Will the defendant please rise?" Just kidding... Where would be without you drummers?

    Was there a conversation here about Oxxford having their made in Italy shirts done by Kiton? Or am I remembering that wrong.

    Its not likely one you find will be - it was only for like a year or so in the early 2000s.

    This is what I found. Probably the nicest MOP's I've come across, tons of handwork, as the label suggests.

    ^^ Nice Shirt ^^

    The Oxxford Clothes shirts I've had made by Kiton are like this
    but with Kiton buttons. Can't tell on this for sure.

    Thanks! This is the first non-SC Oxxford I've come across. I've handled most of the other top brands, and this blows them away. The mop's aren't super thick like on Zegna or Borrelli or even the one Fray I found, they are larger and flatter and much more substantial.

    Those look like Kiton buttons to me.

    How old is this EZ tie label?

    Also, cherry popped, complete with obnoxiously large MOPs.

    I think that's still the most recent Zegna.

    Bone-dry day today - all the thrifts were mobbed, as were the TJ's and Marshalls...then I realized that today is the last day of our 2-day sales tax holiday - no sales tax on clothing and certain back-to-school items. So everyone was out shopping and I didn't get crap. One BB shirt, two ties (Kenzo and RTBOC), and one pair of Rugby RL jeans. Saving my juice for when my honey hole puts out their winter items, after Labor Day.
