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.

    Kelsey Grammer actually came into my work the other day. I didn't get to talk to him, but my co-worker said he was a really nice guy.

    There are regulars in this thread from all over but I think the general consensus is that the most baller, ridiculously expensive at retail and recent stuff comes from Southern California. But this shit can be found anywhere. I live in the Rust Belt and have found Loro Piana, Brioni, Isaia and John Lobb. Just gotta be persistent.

    And hope that some group of a-holes in your area hasn't paid off all the people in the sorting rooms to set aside the lobbs, kiton, lp, vass and other grail stuff. :paranoia:
    But seriously, its all about persistence.

    Ahhhhh that would probably fit me! Available?

    I haven't had much time to post, dealing with some personal crap, but I have some finds to post and some awesome hook ups from people here to post tomorrow.

    In the mean time, I am very much on the market for any sweaters or outerwear that would fit me. 44-46L/XL or XLT. Anyone have anything in their piles?

    Awesome find on that W&G, Eazy, and sea captain!

    Besides a few shirts & ties for myself of no particular note and some Ebay fodder, I grabbed some interesting things. It was a beautiful fall day here in the valley, and I really enjoyed it more than usual. Stopped by the new Nordstrom Rack that opened a few days ago to see what may be filtering down to the thrifts in my area but it doesn't look terribly promising. Grabbed some Woodlore shoe trees to synergize on my tie hanger from earlier in the day. In one store, I overheard a man call out to his toddler-age daughter, "Come here, Zegna." We're naming our kids this now?

    RIP, similar sized gentleman of much better pedigree.

    Nice on the shoes. For that Borrelli, I would pick it up and take its buttons to put on another shirt.

    Dan...quit complaining. I never even get to go out anymore. :embar:

    Although based on the stuff you post...I think you run a wider circuit than I did.
