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.

    If you thrift for a living, then I guess that's okay. If not, it's just a bit too much like the ref. and the head coach passing signals during a football game.

    Spoo you're a fucking class act.

    As for me, it turned out that it's 25% off at the local gw. I went a little nuts but I think I found some really neat things!

    Had second thoughts about a few things so I left them. Regret maybe one of those things, but it'll pass!

    I've told Spoo this before, but does certainly pertain about other members as well, his generosity always exceeds my expectations. Keep giving good fellas, the fortune will follow.

    Happy New Year's Eve to all you wonderful guys! Have fun, be safe!

    See you all on the other side, 2014 better watch out. We gonna kill it in here!!

    Few quick things from today before I head out to get ready for the evening...

    I have no idea about this brand, but this looked substantial and the work looked pretty good to my really untrained eye. I don't know denim at all, but this 'spoke' to me. The brand is called 'operator'. @Nataku @barrelntrigger , any info? I searched ebay and google and all I found were concealed carry hits for jackets and pants...

    Tagged small, but it's huge on my arms. Also has a drawstring waist. Available.

    Teaser...

    Orvis suedes Khakis! Size 36. Available.
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Did I just make a mistake or is this an SWD grail-ish item?

    Michalsky Berlin. It's basically a puffer jacket except it's a blazer. What?
    Size Large. Available.

    So I heard this was a thing...
    XL Available.
    [​IMG]

    Other things today were an EZ shirt, a few BB slim fit shirts, a Pink Shirt, and a few other things for myself. The weirdest things that I grabbed but eventually passed on were a women's western blazer (it was crazy looking!) but the back had a few stains and I know nothing about women's clothing and the name didn't register any hits. AND a hickey freeman sport blazer made in italy. I have some pics of the jacket and tag and I'll post them later because I've never seen any of these before out in the field or on this thread. I also passed on a canali shirt because the collars were a hair worn. Oh well.

    Shouts to EazyE, Nataku and RideTheCliche for sending some packages my way. Cheers!

    Speaking of cheers, I'd like to raise a glass to this thread and its dwellers. The knowledge level here never fails to amaze me. No matter how obscure the label, someone knows the company's history; no matter how weirdly constructed the garment, someone knows its name and its arcane purpose; no matter how convincing the fake, someone knows how to spot the fatal flaw. I have learned so much from you all and hope to one day have half the knowledge you all do.

    The postman came today and dropped off some deep-discount purchases I made on Boxing Day (all thrift-funded, natch). Excuse the crap pics but the sun set a while ago and I'm too lazy to dig out the photo gear.

    I heard of the Japanese brand Sassafras this summer and thought it was really cool; I'm an avid gardener and have completely torn up my backyard and most of the front lawn to turn into veggie space, including building a greenhouse and utility shed from scratch. I'm also a workwear fan but kind of feel weird about wearing it since I have a cushy desk job. Sassafras makes workwear aimed at gardeners, with unconventional pockets and loops for trowels, sprayer bottles and the myriad of other odds and ends I usually end up carrying around, so I was immediately drawn to their style of workwear since it was relatable to my life and didn't make me feel like I was playing roughneck dress-up.

    ^^ Wow! Those are some seriously cool pieces!!



    Here's my vest I was talking about. Just dug this out of the space closet at my parents house. It's been over a decade since this came remotely close to fitting.
