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.

    I'm not going to blow up any spots here, but there are places in Chicago where most SC's are under $3. Granted, when they think they have something good, it goes to the "good" rack, i.e, Chaps, Lauren Ralph Lauren, NWT Merona, and is priced accordingly, around $19.00. The Zegna was priced $1.90 straight from the back, no mark downs. :nodding:

    Levi's update: Buyer actually paid for them. $1400. Was for sure it was a bullshit nonpaying bidder. Officially my all time greatest find and you thrift thread OG's know I've had some good hauls. Bananaaaaaaaaaaas. I don't even really thrift anymore, but Kansas City: I still run this

    [​IMG] You know...we had a Levis factory in Sedalia for about 100 years, my guess would be that if I study up on my Levis, I could probably find some really great vintage jeans.

    I just picked up a pair of cordovan Allen Edmonds "Chester" wingtips for $10 at Housing Works in New York City. I wear a size 14D, so its difficult to find nice second-hand shoes or even sale/clearance shoes in that size, so I was particularly happy to find these.

    This showed up in the mail today. A gift from my designer jeans friend. Can't believe this was in her little coal mining town.

    I've just photo'd 7 tweeds for ebay tomorrow night.

    3 are HF.

    None as nice as that first one. Love the Beaver collar.

    One of my tweeds is a middishade harris tweed. I know they were a philadelphia area manufacturer, but don't know their rep at all. Decent?

    Around here I think the only place I have seen where SCs are less than $5 is at SA.

    Only a few things recently. n/a unless indicated otherwise.

    Lands End Shetland Wool made in UK. Think these were mentioned on here a week ago.

    Nice finds! Talbott Estate shirts are amazing. I've only found two or three. Really nice, thick MOP buttons and I think they are signed by the worker who did the finishing details as well.

    Not only are they signed, but all of these have a little pocket on the inside of the placket at the bottom that holds an extra set of Robert Talbott collar stays. Crazy cool little details.
