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.

    I figure the rare occasion that I wear a bow tie should be commemorated with a thrift fit. Like a buddhist painting, each of my fit pics has some f'd up flaw, like the shawl collar sticking up from the trench coat here. :facepalm:

    I still think it's a clean look. Fit seems good too.

    Big shout out to the entire thread for teaching me how to spot the signs of quality. If I had come across this early in my thrifting days I would have passed it by as I don't recognize the name. Made in the USA with dual vents, 3/2 roll, natural shoulders, pick stitching, MoP buttons, unlined back, bold as fuck pattern, huge amounts of handwork, floating canvas construction, AND IT FITS.

    Why I love my local thrift. Not only do they not know the high-end brand that are obscure, but even the well known brands they just don't care.

    First thrift store in a few weeks. Only spent ten minutes, but came out with three belts for three bucks. (DanM, Valley in Fairfield.)

    Dangit, north side of town has been dry for a while. Nice finds - I won't venture near Valley on a Monday, their 25% off sale makes the store way too crowded for my taste.

    Welcome to the forum. My wife and I did a Canadian trip a couple years back to Montreal and Quebec City. We really enjoyed Quebec City, just a beautiful town and great food. Of course we stayed at Le Château Frontenac which was equally amazing.

    I used to be into photography when i had free time lol One of my favorites I took while there.

    I can only imagine. I've never actually been there on a Monday. This was on Saturday and it still took about 10 minutes to get out of the parking lot and back on Dixie.

    ahah this is a very nice restaurant! I don't know if it's your wife that you were shooting... If it's not you just discovered the reason why I love this city (I'm an expatriate French guy here) ;)

    Hi guys, I need a little advice from experienced thrifters like you!
    Just thought about visiting my local GW. Not so much things but I found this :
    [​IMG]

    The other label is the name of a local tailor. What does it mean? That the tailor bought the cloth from Zegna and handmade the jacket? It's a 90/10 wool/cashmere that feels insanely great when I tried it! It's a 44LL (first time I see a double L) and it fits like a 46 because I'm a 46.
    They sell it for 25$ which is a bit higher from what I would expect.

    What do you think guys? :)

    nah just a random woman coming out of the restaurant. I used to enjoy doing travel photography but once we had the twins 3 years ago i sold off most of the equipment. Just impossible to travel and take pictures anymore like we used to. I'll get back into once the boys get a bit older and don't behave like wild animals.

    Yep cloth was made by zegna which is very high quality and was made by someone else. If you like it and it fits you well then $25 is a great score. Nothing better than finding something in your size at thrift prices that you like. Had that happen this weekend scored a pair of nearly new Church's Diplomat shoes retail $770 for $15 and they fit perfect. :)

    If it fits you and you like it, then grab it for yourself. For anything else, pass.

    And you're right. Zegna made the cloth and sold it to the tailor.
