    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.

    Another dry day; didn't get jack and what I did get I had to work for.

    NWT BB shirt - only the 346 line - nothing fancy.

    Zegna Italy - most of what I find in shirts are made in Romania - been a while since I copped an Italy.

    Nudie jeans Western shirt. Did that embroidery on the back - I think the "Honey Bee" applique was added by the previous owner but it works in my opinion.

    EDIT: forgot an ethrift with intent to flip from today - Ben Silver Ursinus College blazer buttons (retail from $225 to over $4k but these are probably the cheaper gold plated). Yes, will take ages for the right buyer to come along. I can wait.

    Benjamin Bixby isn't seen much on the forum, I expected the shirts to be nicer considering how everyone retroactively raves about this line, fits me well but I hate contrast collars so available

    Any thoughts on these G.H. Bass loafers? No labels on size, where made, etc. Look pristine but only shows some #'s written in ink on the side. I have seen other brands with the same lettering but trying to figure out why. The leather is supple and the soles are nice.

    Field does serious full bespoke work - there might not be much of a flip market for them, but from a quality standpoint, they can go toe-to-toe with Savile Row houses.

    So, I actually just culled through and took a few old navy blazers out of my rotation because I had too many. and then Easy found one and cut me an awesome deal. Which brings me back to no less than 5 already.
    Also, this is definitely an orphan.

    So obviously I kopped.

    Let's just hope it converts well.

    (If anyone has a badass set of blazer buttons they're willing to part with, get at me.)

    Um, whut?

    Hey Cap: That Daks is freaking phenomenal.

    How about making your post without the sales pitch? Thanks.
