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.

    Hit up 3 of my regular thrift stores today, saw my first ever Ike Behar and Ermenegildo Zegna shirts. Unfortunately, they were both stained so I passed. I did pick up something to decorate a big empty wall in my home office for $5! It's about 3.5 x 2.5 feet and fills the space up nicely,

    While flipping through the ties, this made me laugh out loud, figured some of you guys might get a kick out of it...Ohhh is that how I use this?!

    Skip Studio. Best of Class in nice patterns, or extremely gaudy patterns.

    Estate, Seven Fold, Carmel insta-grabs (price willing).

    OK, glad I wasn't being stupid then. Most were indeed studio. I think I saw one BC.

    Never ever saw any 7-folds, estates or carmel. Only 7 fold I've seen is an isaia, which i insta-kopped.

    i generally cop them if they're rep stripe or paisley. i wouldn't cop to sell on ebay but on that other site they do pretty well but depends on how much you pay per tie. goodwills around here are crazy cheap on ties.

    Some non-apparel finds:

    Tom Ford women's glasses (TF5132, available):

    J. Crew British Millerain messenger bag:

    Vintage women's purse. Would appreciate help with dating this piece. The only tag I can find inside the bag is in the spoiler.

    One of my favorite non-apparel finds: Tusting large canvas explorer bag (made in England, beautiful leather trims). Not sure if this is new or not (comes with tags and paperwork), but if it was used, it wasn't used very heavily, definitely has not been checked on a plane. Not sure what I want to do with it--I have no use for it, but I don't think I'll come across anything like this again.

    OK Gentle hommes. I need a reality check. My wife thrifted this yesterday. She texted me the photo, told her million to 1 its a fake, but the store lets her return it within 5 days.

    Outside feels like lambskin, inside is black suede with silver Chanel Stamp - properly centered. All hardware is silver and has either the logo or the name. The auth card shows a 8 digit serial beginning in 10. It also has a 1/4" round chanel logo hologram sticker beside it. All in all, this is a very detailed purse and other fakes I've seen cut the corners more than this on the details. But I know almost nothing about womenz so I need your help.

    I told her that she can't keep it if its real, because its worth too much, and won't keep it if its fake....because its fake. She told me if its real, I better keep my hands off.

    Here's some of the stuff I copped in Asheville. All available as it doesn't fit me. Sale or trade, either way! Have way more pics of each but can't remember how to spoiler(if someone could tell me, awesome) so I'll just limit it to 1 or 2 per coat.

    LL Bean Harris Tweed Shooting Jacket. 3/2 roll and has a throat latch, center-vented. No tagged size but fits about like a 38r. Measurements later/when requested.

    [​IMG]

    Orvis tweed jacket with patch pockets. Center-vented. Tagged 40R.

    [​IMG]

    Zegna High Performance SC. Tagged 42R. Dual-vented and fully lined.

    [​IMG]

    I don't usually cop Jack Victor...but when I do it better be a fucking nasty 100% linen SC with dual vents. Jack Victor prossimo would be a better line than his others, yeah? Tagged 44L. Partially lined, as well.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]


    Brooks Brothers blue/black houndstooth SC. Tagged 46L. Single-vent and fully lined.

    [​IMG]

    Brooks Brothers hand tailored SC. Single vent and fully lined. Tagged 42L.

    [​IMG]

    Brooks Brothers 3/2 roll black SC(dinner jacket maybe?). Brass buttons, single vent and half-lined with patch pockets. Tagged 42L.

    [​IMG]

    Brooks Brothers POW pattern SC. Maybe an orphan. Center vent and fully lined. Tagged 41L.

    [​IMG]


    Now some other stuff. All available as well.

    Zegna 5 button pants/jeans. Slim fitting. 34 waist, 29" inseam. Had a pair like these before that I sent to Cotton Dockers and I'd have kept them if they fit me.

    [​IMG]

    Thomas Pink v-neck sweater. Tagged XL. May keep this but unsure what I'd wear it with.
