    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.

    Is Zegna's 15 mil 15 the equivalent to Super 150's or higher?

    Higher I believe- closer to 180 if I remember right.


    Oh: story of the day (yes, thrift related)

    Today I got a message from someone on eBay about a pair of shoes I was flipping.




    I don't like the fact that you brought them for $10, but wants to sell them for $150. [10 was written on the sole by the thrift I got them from]

    That's really unethical!

    I was interested in them until I saw that. You are a true capitalist. The shoes are used, and they were purchased used.

    That's not cool!

    Charge him $10 + gas, your time @ $100/hr (drive, find, drive home, polish, picture, list, pack & ship), ebay fee, paypal fee, shipping fee and i think $180 is cheap!

    15 milmil 15 is 15 micron wool but there is no real correlation between Zegna's 15/14/13 and the Super "s" designations - they are two different terms that, as far as I seen, don't mean or measure the same thing. A good short read from some years ago but still holds true.

    Unless it's more than 20 bucks you can still probably flip that.

    I passed on a Givenchy shirt straight out of the 70s... Very worn and missing two buttons (both cuffs).

    Woulda made a great Halloween getup, but not worth the $15 Savers wanted...

    I've been seeing a lot of cowboy boots lately. Can someone enlighten me about what to look for? Not only brands but materials and construction details.
