    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.

    Does it have a Corneliani tag, or is PRL Italy=Corneliani? Just asking because I've found a few lately w/ no other ID other than the Italy tag?

    Big score for me today:

    Stuff from last weekend. Nothing too exciting:

    Viyella,G. Battistoni, Truzzi, Delsiena, Zanella (seems really old), RG

    Paul & Shark polo

    This was probably a mistake, Saw the old Baracuta label, but couldn't remember the good jacket style. It's in great shape though.

    Brooks Brothers tweed

    The Brooks coat turned out to be a little big for me. It is tagged a 41. Anyone want it can have it for shipping.

    Also available for just shipping is a greenish Magee Donegal Mist that I picked up...but noticed after I came home some fraying on one of the sleeves. No size tag but prob a 44.

    ^^^^^ That is the Baracuta tag you are looking for. Now the question is, is it English? Or Taiwanese? Generally people are looking for the G-9 Harrington jacket, but the one you've got looks pretty cool too!

    BTW, not that it needed confirmation, but Spoo is awesome at what he does. I struggle to get single bidders, I send him a couple funky items and (1) they photograph amazingly and (2) they're all drawing multiple bids within hours.

    Whenever I've done it, I've put a layer between the iron and tie, like a towel. Seems to work, but it takes a bit more pressure and time than regular ironing.

    Haven't been out thrifting since last weekend, what with school and work. I did e-thrift this lovely number though,
    NWT Hickey Freeman cotton/linen safari jacket. I'd been watching this for weeks, finally the price was right and the dude accepted my pretty low offer. It's a little late in the season, but I think I can still get a few wears out of it.

    Found my first Sulka last night, along with a great hand knitted fisherman's sweater. Film at 11.

    Thanks eazy. Yeah I remembered the tag, but couldn't remember what the Harrington looked like and I didn't have my phone with me to verify. Its made in the British Colony of HK,

    After a good part of a year languishing in my closet, I finally took these two vintage coats to my tailor. I had them both taken in at the waist and sleeves.
