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.

    Needs a pressing.
    Agreed, although that's the style. 99.99% of people on the street will have no idea. Wear it in good health, though I suggest you go a little more CM in fit next time you purchase a suit.

    Between your SF name, avatar, and the above photo, it's easy for us to see that it's Purple Label. However, how will everyone else know it is? Possible solutions: - Wear the jacket inside out. - Have your tailor remove the interior label and place it on your sleeve - Print photos to show everyone (best option) :D I'm really just kidding, it was a nice find at a good price! Enjoy it!

    I can assure you its not. Its snug, but not too snug... There's more than enough room to do the 'hug test'

    Hahaha! You scoundrel [​IMG]I don't wanna take it off. I waited over a month to wear it, and now its all mine... My first PL.

    Oh god yeah, it creases like linen! That's just from today... Its a con about the suit. Pardon my ignorance, but what's 'CM'?

    classic menswear. That's definitely a fashion forward fit, not so classic.

    CM = classic menswear

    Also, I think the fit looks just fine...just a matter of preference as far as how snug you want the suit to fit.

    edit: looks like dazed beat me to it

    Owch! Hind-sight is always 20/20.


    Nice find! I love Mountain Hardware's jackets. I've been eyeing the Monkey Man fleece jacket for awhile now...


    So I left that Chanel scarf the other day. Went with my gut - Spoo confirmed my gut was right. Well, today my gut says this one is real but old. Spoo (or anyone else for that matter), please tell me I'm right...

    Ahhh, makes sense!

    I said to the tailor that I didn't want it too tight but it still had to have that traditional look. I hate skinny suits with a passion.

    I am always amazed at some of the stuff that I find here in my little state of UT. Finds are few and far between but it has been a good week or so.

    Marshall's. Congrats on your sales. I'm curious to know- are yours also made in China? Perhaps Duchamp only distributes their Chinese-made ties to discount stores because all the ties on their website (and other upscale store websites) are only made in England and a few in Italy.

    I still had to pay $40 for them but the risk seemed low.

    Wow, Chanel, huntsman and Ghurka! I haven't had time to thrift since school is insane, but I realized I was wearing mostly thrifted stuff today.

    Shoutout to @AlexJ1100 for the sweet Allen Edmonds belt that fills a need for lighter brown. Awesome trade.
