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.

    Another recent find: the Gloverall duffel coat. It's the 70% wool, 30% poly blend version, so not perfect, but a good replacement for my too-big pea coat.
    Does anyone know where to find a replacement for the broken "antler" toggle? I know Gloverall sells sets, but I only need one, and also don't want to have it shipped from the UK. Anyone have a source?

    Bummer--but I think you're right. Well, it was only $3, and I'll probably return it anyway.

    I could have sworn that I had seen another prl quilted tie here lately.

    And boo spoo! I say he goes to an art store, finds a suitable replacement, makes a unique button, and picks up an art student!

    Yes, well....

    Incidentally, apropos of nothing at all, has anyone ever read Tolstoy's "How Much Land Does A Man Really Need?"


    Very nice shirts.

    No Marinella today. Passed on some wildly overpriced BBGF ties, and ended up with one T&A tie, one vintage PRL herringbone tweed (dual vent, ticket pocket), one pair of Corneliani flat front linen and a pair of J Crew selvedge.

    Yeah, I've got some Signature Gold suits. Perfectly nice, but if that's Z Zegna level (or at least same factory as Z Zegna) then holy god do you pay a lot for the Zegna labels.

    Nothing crazy today. Two pick ups over lunch.

    I don't think this is an orphan SC and I think it's recent-ish. Looks like very little wear and ALL the pockets are basted shut.42R
    And a pair of 9.5 Cole Haan horsebit loafers. The heels look like they've barely seen the light of day.

    Both available in case anyones interested.

    Jacket is an orphan and old....like 5 lables ago old.

    and

    Shoes... maybe its just the pictures but they look pretty beat (maybe heels replaced??)

    If you are buying this stuff for you all good, but to trade and sell, which is sounds like...might want to be a little more picky. IMO
