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,

    Big thanks to my SS (couldn't find your SF name). To my guy, sorry for the delay. Your gift will go out this weekend.

    Cheers to GMMcL as well, been more than an accommodating trade partner - and to Cap for cleaning up my SF game

    This thread is great, but it isn't the final word. If you find anything that sells well (verified by checking eBay completed listings), why not pick it up if you intend to flip it?

    If these are your measurements, get at me, I found this amazing unstructured and soft shouldered triple patch pocket flecked tweed sc with working cuffs and the vent still basted shut. No idea on the maker, as the one tag has been removed. Really Really nice though, IMHO. Soooooooooooo wish it was my size. :cloud:
    Shoulder to shoulder 18 3/4
    shoulder to cuff 25.5
    pit to pit 22
    boc 31.5

    Loakes were gone. :(

    Did pick up size 11 zegna shoes, a Talbot shirt, a corneliani shirt, a paul frederick shirt, and a bb tie. Oh, and that jacket haha. Passed on a tyrwitt thatlooked like it had seen better days. Same with a pair of prl cords.

    So if anyone wants dibs on the jacket or shoes get at me. Jacket is a 46R and the shoes are a size 11. Hoping to trade!
