    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.

    A few recent pickups.

    I did not pick this one up but I couldn't leave it without grabbing a pic.

    I throw anything that doesn't fit on my Universal Shrink-N-Stretch-R and keep it.

    Everything is thrifted or bought cheap!
    Like the pairings? Constructive critics are encouraged.

    This reminds me of that Lending Tree commercial where the guy gets dressed up to go apply for a loan. Is this how you dress to go to the Apple Store? [​IMG]

    It feels a little low-contrast for my taste, but I'm no expert.

    I dig the jacket and tie together, but I think this would look even better with a light blue shirt. Nice fit regardless, thanks for sharing.

    I photographed an event last week with a regular client and asked what I should wear. They said black trousers/black pants would work just fine (this was much better than their initial request of formal... which I would later figure out meant business attire). I also could have worn a more trad outfit but photographing an event in a sport coat is neither good for my photographs or the sport coat. I get there and realize I match the caterers/wait staff perfectly shy of their black ties [​IMG]. Thank god I had a camera in my hands and a badge that read event photographer. Needless to say, I'll be getting some stuff I've had sitting in my closet tailored so that this sort of bs wont happen again.

    I know everyone is tired of these sort of questions but I have to ask. Found this Hermes scarf today. Everything to my untrained eye seems to check out but I would love a second opinion on it's authenticity. Also any information on what this is a picture of would be great, appears to be German/Austrian. (please be real!)

    and for the second annoying question. Does anybody recognize this tag? It is from a made in Italy wool overcoat. Did not find the tag in the label thread.

    Not a word of a lie, but there was a rich industrialist in my town whose name was Harry Hole.

    Maybe these two knew each other.

    I'm curious about these two- I'd like to google their names but I'm a little worried about what might come up.

    Slight (I hope) derail. Took a tumble in a parking lot Friday and busted up the ankle pretty badly, to the point where I can't go thrifting. It's driving me nuts. I've been cold turkey for five days now. Has anyone else gone through withdrawal? All the CL and shopgoodwill.com in the world isn't helping.

    Absolutely!

    You need a care package? If everyone here sends you two things it will almost be like you were actually in the thrift.
