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.

    Did I miss something? I don't think he said that this is the one worn by Will Smith. Just the same pattern. WS is wearing a two button and his find was a three button. Still an amazing find in any case.

    Well he said that Will smith was donating a lot of items to his local store. And whilst he was there, he picked up a Tom Ford that (presumably) belonged to WS himself! Pretty awesome

    Some stuff. S/O to my roommate Centuar1 for being a monstrous beast and finding most of the really redic stuff.

    Really fantastic Oxxford gray flannel flat fronts- even the hems were done by hand! 34 x 34!

    I just won this Isaia coat uncontested; a real rarity with my measurements:

    I can't tell which line this is from the label, since it's obviously older. I'm also worried it might be an orphaned suit jacket since it has a drop # on the label, but I've seen that on sport coats, too. Any ideas? At $43, it's no big deal either way.

    Never seen that label, I am sure thats why there was no competition. If you are happy then thats all that matters :nodding:

    Our's did pretty well for it being a hunting jacket. Garments that wore out quicker such as that hooded sweatshirt are a lot more rare. Something to keep an eye out for. :)

    Don't recognize the label, but the jacket's definitely an orphan. Sorry.

    Almost $700 for a sweatshirt? I'm going to have to check the athletic department more often.

    And when you don't manage to drop those lbs, I'll take it off your hands.
