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,

    English Laundry is pretty much a way riskier version of RG. RG you are guaranteed money. From browsing eBay completed listings, English Laundry is completely hit or miss- with no apparent criteria as to why some do well. I always pass on English Laundry- not worth it and if it doesn't sell you are stuck with the ugliest shirt ever.

    Otherwise though: really impressive haul hbk!

    Well that's the last thing I thought I'd see here today. That's a thrift thread first, right?

    Cool sweater! I love cardigans! The elbow patches are a great detail. Sadly it has little monitary value, probably $10-$20. Maybe $30. The $$ is in the Southwestern and Native American pattern sweaters. Think The Big Lebowski sweater.
    +1. Do your research though and make sure you know what the current labels are.
    :lurk:
    Send some of that luck my way. I think I'm headed into a dry spell again.
    Excellent haul! Mind posting a picture of the limited edition Zegna label? I've seen a limited edition shirt (I think it was made for the Millenium, had 2000 on the label) before at my local NMLC before they bailed on us. Never seen a jacket/suit before though.
    This.
    Haha, wow! A dug-out. Haven't seen one of these in years!

    Of course. for the mayor. And apparently it's 37/100 I misread the label in haste.

    Awesome Haul, really good $$ in there.

    This reminds me too much of a ciggy...must resist the temptation. [​IMG]

    Thanks. I'll keep an eye out. I'm just stoked that this one fits and is real comfy and wearable.

    Shawn, who runs Form Function Form hooked me up with this minty Orient Thresher, plus 2 FFF button studs (natural Chromexcel and #8 veg ran), 3 NATO straps, and the original bracelet. Real happy to have a white faced watch. I've been wearing a Blue Mako every day and I love it but this is sweet.

    Finding a good condition Vicuna coat or even a scarf would be a special feeling.... to me it can only be topped by climbing Everest or seeing Earth from orbit.
    I mean I thrifted two great wool scarfs for 4$ total and it already feels like winning

    Found a few interesting things today but they weren't my size so I didn't grab. Thrift store here has a lenient return policy so I'm not opposed to picking things up for others.

    Found a ton of BB today but it wasn't in my size. Blazer was a 48 and pinstripe so I thought it was an orphan. Also found 4 Pink shirts in a 17.5 collar if anyone wants me to grab them. Also found a hickey Freeman collection blazer but it was also too big.

    I grabbed a few PRL pants and shirt, and a few BB shirts for me. Found a Burberry pants in my size too. Pics to come.

    :)

    21" Armpit to armpit
    41" Total Length (from top of collar to bottom of back)

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]
    2. Burberry Trenchcoat Size 48

    3. Burberry Salmon Colored Blazer Estimated size 42
    Measurements:
    25" Sleeves (From shoulder seam)
    21.5" Armpit to armpit
    32" Length (from top of collar to bottom of back)

    None of these fit me so I figured I'll try to sell them here

    Contact me if interested.

    Thanks!
