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.

    My wife doesn't often ask what I've bought, but rarely a day goes by when she doesn't ask what I've sold! She couldn't have cared less as I modeled this PRL jacket that I picked up today which I thought was pretty effin' cool! (pardon my mannequin's junk)

    I made a couple stops today. Pretty dry over all, but I came away with these beauties:

    Ferragamo double monks in great shape. 8 1/2 D and available. Cherry popped, actually.
    Also I snagged this for a buck:

    Fun story I am not sure I ever shared with the thread. I went to high school with Ike Behar's grand daughter.

    Nice line or not, buying and paying for alterations on a shirt that will always be too big on you is probably not a good idea. Sorry dz.

    Yes, very. Smart, funny, down to earth, and pretty hot, too. I am still "FB Friends" with her and have considered asking for samples...lol.

    Yeah, I picked it up because I'd never seen a Ted Baker around here. That's a Uniqlo linen jacket that was on sale over the summer, I think for $19.99.

    Not using Instagram, but Photoshop with lots of automation.

    Many thanks for the kind words. The pics with just the clothing in them don't take too long (even the tie pics), as there's quite a bit of automation involved, both in the placement of the clothing and camera, and on the Photoshop side.

    The pics with me in them take the most time, but I dunno, I see those more of a dress rehearsal to posting elsewhere (like waywrn) where I'll be brutally torn to pieces. I can't wait! [​IMG]

    But first I need to build up my wardrobe. I had nothing, zero, zilch quality clothing, no sense of style, when I started reading style forum - so my pet project has been to obtain quality clothing at thrift prices. It might take a while as I learn...

    Nope, I agree with you 100%. I didn't think the shoulders were too bad when I had it on before the alterations, but when I look at the pictures with a critical eye now, it really shows. Oh well, live and learn...

    Never heard of this brand before coming across it. Angelo Nardelli linen. NWOT made in Italy, unstructured, pick stitching, seems well constructed and styled. Any thoughts on this brand?
