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.

    Well...in my defense. The Norfolk Jacket was picked up this weekend while thrifting with Brianpore and the Smoking Jacket was from lunch today...which was my allowed window of thrifting.

    one thrift leads to 2, 2 leads to 3 and before you know it you're lying face down in a pile of moth destroyed Stafford blazers and don't know what's happened for the last 72hrs![​IMG]

    Cool jacket for sure. Too recent though to be of any major value. I'd say mid-late 70's. Still great patina and a nice piece. The big $$ stuff for this maker is pre WWII era. The stuff from the 50's on is still fairly common on the bay.

    I missed the posting of that smokers jacket. Simply put, it is f'in smokin'. Looks like a piece I would have to research on, like a piece of art.

    Nice :D Lodenfrey is a big store in munich. As you can see, it was made by Steinbock form Austria. It is a typical mohair blended Loden Coat. Loden is great, because it is very tough, water- and windproof. Here you can see, how Loden is made: http://www.lodenwalker.at/cms/
