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,

    So i went back last evening, again under a lot of timepressure (really shouldn't thrift in the narrow window between office hours and shop closing). The dots on the other Corneliani seemed to have some lint, so a definite no-go for me.

    Happy Turkey Everyone!

    I'm thankful for a lot of things. One of them is this thread. It helps me keep my sanity in the most insane way. (As if I hadn't lost it long ago). Hope you all have a great day. Eat too much. Out grow your clothing. Shop at theSEAMstore.com to buy more. :spam:

    My wife is going out tonight with the girls. The outlets open at 8pm for early bird shopping. I'll just hit the GW in the AM. All of my holiday shopping is done online. I am basically anti-retail.

    Already trying. A few sold for 930 but they're deflating rapidly (not as fast as it bubbled though). It'll deflate the price even more but I really don't think bitcoins will stay in the thousands, or surpass that.

    Happy Thanksgiving all!

    Thrifted these the other day also. Personally like them with a pinched bow better then the flat.

    Good morning gents! Here's some Thanksgiving tweed for you. Kind of busy, I know, but fuck it, I'm on vacation!
    Harris Tweed cap
    PRL by Corneliani angora and virgin wool hacking jacket, suede elbow patches, dual vent, ticket pocket, thrifted my me.
    Paul Stuart check shirt, thrifted by me
    Lands End wool Prince of Wales tie, thrifted by me
    Levis cords, not thrifted
    PRL by C&J thrifted my me
    Custom English tweed coat that I scooped of eBay last year for a song.

    You're fits are great Eazy, especially the coat. Are the sportcoat sleeves a bit short? My seamstress does them longer. Just wondering.
