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.

    Quoting my own because I value the opinions of you, the gents of the thrift thread. So I got the above shoes... And the soles are kind of too much for me. Double thick, platformy, they don't really flex at all. Thinking since I got such a good deal, maybe a re-sole is in order. What would you guys pick? I'm thinking along the lines of the Vibram Christy sole.

    Personally I think the soles are awful and would not be caught dead in them as they sit. Definitely a candidate for a resole as the uppers are gorgeous.

    Thank you - ended up leaving it as I was having a bitch of a time trying to post here from my mobile and it looked like it never went thru, and I couldn't find a comp on eBay / online.

    Had to drag this up to say that I spent three years in Cleveland and never ONCE found a STITCH of Kiton. Leaving it in any location is... unfathomable to me, actually. O_O

    A couple of clothing finds worth showing: one cool, the other educational:

    Dack's camel-skin derbies:

    Dack's true custom-grade Scotch-grain derbies. Back when Dack's made a handmade shoe that if it had a closed welt would be right up there. Note the skiving at the apron.

    I haven't found anything I like by them in ages, and 95% of what I do find is made in the US...first 100% cashmere Aquascutum I've come across, made in England - no brainer for me.

    Saw some interesting things in a thrift today... First Alden's I have seen outside of a regular retail environment, new in box, priced at 400 fricking dollars. In a thrift - as if anyone is gonna walk in and pay that. Slew of Narcisco Rodriguez dresses, all NWT but spattered with ink stains - originally like $1500 each but worthless. Used Tyrwhitt shirts for $25 each. Tyrwhitt trench for $125. Pringle sweater with holes for $50. US-made "Burberry's" orphan SC's for $100. Mexican-made Z Zegna suit for $900. Apparently someone at this thrift has the interwebs but no idea how thrift stores are supposed to (or maybe used to?) work...

    I did grab one thing there - Dunhill Italy (older Zegna I think) SC with issues, for button harvesting (the ones with the little "d" logo - a set currently on eBay for $470 OBO [not that they would ever sell for anywhere near that much]).

    hah, that Anderson-Little... I see that logo on occasion and a lot of similar old-school stuff - a store here used to sell a ton of it - but I feel like I'd buy 20 things to find 1 or 2 that were decent to sell.

    Also, I've passed Gran Sasso repeatedly (the lana cashmere seta) - it looks like it doesn't sell too well? I have a couple for myself, it is niceish stuff. Am I missing something?

    You are not Spoo, he sold a Bert Pulitzer tie for $41. This man can pick up a Stafford polyester suit and get a bidding war going...

    Oh - heh - forgot this oddball pickup today. 8 copies, all new/sealed, of John Peel's Tractor 180-gram double-LP with CD [kinda prog/psyche]. Being double-LP's with CD they were outrageously priced at $4.29 each (compare to eBay). I guess I'm back in the record selling business...
