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.

    Figured you'd like that. I'll respond to your PMin a bit, I have to go in the store and pickup cranberries and sweet potatoes for whatever is going on tomorrow.

    If your saying this strictly because of the purchase price, well Belstaff jackets can be had under the radar frequently. Check sold listings. Now if because of the new seller, well than we don't know.

    Cant comment on if the exotic is real, but I thrifted some Bragamo's earlier in the year. Hand sewn basket weaved loafers. Those thing were build with very nice quality. I was surprised.

    Yes I am aware that is why I picked them up but I still want a confirmation they don't feel like other croc I have handled and I am not familiar with the brand so I figured there was a chance they were some shady company that wrote genuine croc on stamped calf or something

    +1, I agree with everything. Like I stated above, I was surprised with the quality of what I had few months back.

    Retiring it in its middle age, then?

    --

    Off topic, but either I'm doing something wrong, or Mac's SUCK with Google doc spreadsheets. And the SF interface doesn't exactly agree with the iPad either. Not sure why you Mac people bow down and revere these things so much; they're just as imperfect as any other machine out there, they're just more pretentious about it.

    Rant. Over.

    I need some help on identifying a few things I picked up today.
    First, these Paraboot boots from which some jackass cut the tag on the side. (Although, I'm honestly going to do that same thing with some Hunter boots that I own. I don't like visible labels.) I've done an image search on Paraboot, and can't figure out what the model is. Anyone know?

    Then there's this dirty-but-lovely Faconnable blazer, made in Italy. I'm going to dig through the label archive here, but if anyone can beat me to the punch by identifying the manufacturer, I'll be grateful.

    Then I got an Etro tie and a Givenchy Monsieur tie. Is this the good Givenchy? It seems nice.

    Any info would be appreciated!

    Hi!

    I'm thinking:

    Paraboot Avignon Boots with Paratex Soles

    Cantarelli for Faconnable Tailleur

    and

    Older Givenchy! I have a recent on in the loft! I'll photo later.

    Hope all is well!

    Thanks. I find the same site you posted a link to in your post. After doing some research I realized I have a jewel. Also, I found a Pockets MTM 2 Button Dual Grey and Blue Window Pane suit in mint condition. Almost like new. Unfortunately, the owner/tailor closed shop this past Spring. Sold to Zegna.
