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,

    Sounds about right... I love it when other customers look at what I have and their eyes light up. It's good to meet other people who appreciate quality!

    So I believe this is Kiton for Bijan

    But I can't identify this one. It's a Bijan Houndstooth Jacket

    hbkshin, I think your bottom one is Brioni. I'd love to see more pics of those!

    Hmmm, as soon as I open the door to thrift shops, I get stressed out with all the flipper around and get super sneezy with all the damn dust particles around, and all my problems come back to haunt me.

    Hmmm, I know I recognize Kiton tags so I'll either assume it's Kiton or it's that D' whatever.

    Just wanted to throw a shout out to the whole community, 16 months ago when I came here, I couldn't have told you what Shell Cordovan, Donegal Tweed, Norfolk or Action back was.

    I think Lirum meant "This isn't really the place [for me to mention this], but I miss you hosting the podcast."


    Not a brag, just posting how I will give my sister her ugly sweater this year...it's getting harder to think of new ways to do it, but I had some gift boxing/bagging left over from my last trip to Florida.

    Open this bag:

    And open this box:

    And tear open this tissue paper:

    To reveal this sweater (yes, I am keeping the green tag/barb on it, so she knows it's from Goodwill):
