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,

    So about a week ago, I took a risk and made an e-thrift. It was a risk because I'm so broke that I've literally been living off of peanut butter sandwiches for a week, college student life.


    Turns out it paid off pretty well. NWOB Edward Green brown suede captoe derbies for sixty bucks. 11E US. Pics when I get back. Here's to hopefully NOT having to eat the same goddamn thing for dinner every day next week ^_^

    Called the unemployed buddy. He wants the job. He normally house/pet sits for us when we travel. I have never paid him cash, rather, he requests to be paid in weaponry, such as slingshots, handmade Asian recurve bows and arrows, or the occasional ebay purchase for a family member's Christmas/birthday gift. I had gotten him 2 slingshots and a pair of headphones in december to cover all of our holiday travel. He said it was too much. Now he is re-foaming my speakers for free....all 36 of them!! Bonus!

    LOL, he's an odd bird. I went to school with him on the last go'round. He's older, late 40's maybe. He didn't do great in school, and couldn't get a job after graduation. Fortunately for him he is on partial disability for a broken back when he was younger. He has some wild back spasms that come out of nowhere.

    Thrift/discount fit:

    It's a bit rumpled from the bag and normally the coat would be buttoned up, but for the sake of showing as much of the fit as possible, I left it open.

    Random herringbone tweed 3/4 jacket (thrift)
    Shawl neck cable cardigan (gift)
    RLPL shirt (bought from tben, thank you!)
    Gray flat front wool slacks (mega discount)
    Chelsea boots (thrift)
    Leather gloves (thrift)
    Mont Blanc Soft briefcase w/ random canvas strap (thrift)

    For a second I thought your post said 'Flat front wool socks' and I was very confused.

    A couple of months ago, I wasn't sure if it's real, actually I'm still not sure. But from all of my research online (not much) it checks out!

    Picked up this Bullock & Jones sportcoat. What do you call this fabric? Doesn't feel like silk, is kind of slubby if that is the right term. Measures out to between 42 and 44. Available to any aspiring Thurston Howell IIIs.

    Shirt looks awesome! [​IMG]
    That's awesome. I bought one like this from orgeo last year. Still can't figure out how to wear it.

    QUESTION: Does Brioni make Brioni, and if so, has Brioni ever made for Sulka?
