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.

    Cheers,

    I stand corrected, although I'd want to see the whole coat.

    +1 those things look like they were created as part of a practical joke.

    Love the jacket (same one you rocked in a past fit pic?) but a little less sure of the cropped pants + fur-lined slipper boots. Take a full body pic!

    Anyone know how to carbon date Jantzen sweaters? This looks like something my mom might have worn in the early 80s...

    Gold non-script lettering and red diver made in USA suggests 70s or 80s...70s if orlon dacron acrylic etc; 80s if wool. Script lettering would be earlier.

    People brag about it here occasionally. Some vintages seem to be decent.

    God bless you, Young American!
    For the first time (other than things consigned with Spoo) my eBay listings (Holland and Holland shoes) made the Put This On list today. Crazy views and watchers.

    First post in a while. Been lurking and trying to learn a thing or two. You guys find some incredible stuff! Nothing worth bragging about from me, today.

    Sorry for bad cell pics. Was in a hurry...been a long day.

    ETRO. Tagged 42. Looks/feels nwot. Probably not worth much, if anything...but it was cheap. I'd keep it for myself if it wasn't too big :/

    Luigi Borrelli. Tagged 16/41. Barely worn. Really thick buttons..small stain on the back that I should be able to get out. Stain isn't visible when shirt is tucked.

    Another Borelli. Tagged 16.. 100% Linen. Basically see-through. Not sure if it's anything...but I think it's interesting, either way. Really thick buttons. Hidden collar buttons.

    Kind of late to the party. Just started watching this a few months ago. If not for me finally deciding to jump on the boat, I'd have no idea what this was.

    Any info on the actual question? Thinking of leaving it behind but not sure.

    I think polo university is older and not part of polo Ralph Lauren. Could be wrong though. I personally always leave it.
