    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.

    I think pants cuffs are out now though, correct me if I'm wrong. I'm not sure, but maybe the tie should be light blue to bring out the pattern of the jacket. (looks light blue to me).

    I'm very jealous! That's seriously a once-in-a-lifetime find right there Are you going to keep or sell? I'd hang onto it if you like the music. I've sold a lot of high $$ records that I now kick myself for doing. I'm a huge psych/prog rock fan so trust me when I say that you have struck gold.

    I've been pretty busy this past week. Figure I should probably post my finds before I forget again.

    Had a couple good stops on my routes recently. Nothing is available at the moment when it does become available I'll post it in the appropriate thread. The suits were on found on donate $5 get 50% off day so they (and two Prada Milano orphans not pictured) for about $35. Apologize about the pics I didn't realize they were so washed out.

    This might have been a waste of $15. Picked it up for myself but not feeling very confident in my ability to pull it off.

    That's some very nice stuff, Nataku. Here's my meager findings from this week:
    Couple of nice looking lambswool sweaters in olive green and cream. Don't know the brand, but the quality looks pretty good. Made in England and all that. They fit me too, so probably keeping them.
    [​IMG]

    Zegna flat front chinos, 36. Can anyone tell me if all Zegna pants are made by Incotex? This one has the tell-tale signs like belt prong loop, blue band at the back etc. (please see picture in spoiler) but I was wondering if there's an 'official' way to tell.
    Double RL military twill workpant. Don't know much about the different lines of RL but the pants are in great condition, and quite heavy too.

    Thanks, Nat! :fistbump:

    That Freeman's swacket is swagger, and I wonder if that composer is a 39, a 38?

    Congrats, stax! :fistbump:



    Wait, did you just thrift a time machine, because you look a couple decades younger. :puzzled:

    Woah, talk about synergy! I also thrifted 2 lee denim chore jackets today, they might even be the exact same models as your GP. Mine were from 2 different stores too. Weird. I'll try and get pics up after work.

    just curious for my own information. aside from the fact that you are separating pants from a jacket or vice versa, what are the issues with picking up orphans? is it considered poor practice to pair an orphan jacket with other pants?

    Nice hauls all!
    I pulled a Z Zegna suit, A Hickey Freeman pinstripe, Rag and Bone Trousers, RLPL Single Cuff shirt, Gitman Bros Shirt x3, Thomas Pink tie x 2, Robert Talbott BOC, and a slightly dated Barbera tie. Pics to come tomorrow morning.
    Shout out to Tx: there was a Paul Stuart suit there I forgot to tell you about as well as a pair of Gap selvage if you haven't found them and want to go back.
