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.

    Hmmm, from the looks of it in the pic, it might have been worn down enough so the starch are all gone. You have a pair of broken in jeans with a plenty of indigo left. Such an awesome find.

    I've just backed a pair of Gustin in their straights. Been digging the straight fit on my Studios. Hopefully their fit will work.

    Man, it's been forever since I posted. Just had time for a quick visit, and found this to flip:
    [​IMG]
    Rag and Bone. It's actually pretty cool--you can button it up like a nehru or wear it like a blazer--but even though it's tagged 40, it's too tight for me. Priced fairly high, but I think I can flip it for more.

    And these are for me:

    I've been wanting dark penny loafers with an elongated toe for ages. They're AE, and I don't recall the model. Can't wait to shine them up and start wearing them!

    Found an Army helmet with cover (fiberglass and cotton) dated 1966. Gotta love Halloween season! Also a Haspel linen sport coat (44L).

    I have a collection of Salvatore Piccolo shirts, including the linen paisley shirt photo'd a page back.

    I think it's the only one that seems machine made - except for the button holes.

    All of the others I own are incredible!!!

    They take 6 hours each to make by hand according to Barney's.

    I've been finding some cool stuff here and there.

    Really itching to do a bragging post.

    Hopefully I'll find some time soon.

    An after work stop was rather successful but with your typical eBay fodder and little for myself save one suit. This A-2 Willis & Geiger jacket, however, was a first for me and at this stage a new first is always exciting. Coming to an online auction site near you....this thing is in absolutely amazing condition. I had to spend a good 5 minutes with it to figure out if it was worn or not.
