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 think if it feels great and it fits then you should buy it and wear it. It is not made by Zegna the same way that you'll find clothing with Loro Piana labels that aren't made by Loro Piana and just companies that use their fabrics.

    You are exactly right. Just a local tailor? using Zegna cloth. Nothing special, but if it fits you well, and is cut nicely, then a good score to be sure!

    I was just reading all of those responses and wondering what the hell was happening. I thought I should probably get out of here...or at least get to my arsenal, assuming of course it was a glitch.

    Oh, and it's Zegna cloth. The jacket was made by a local tailor. :happy:

    Wow! Lucky. My local thrifts mark up anything and everything. Saw a vintage St. Johns Bay plaid shirt in a cool plaid pattern (probably early 80's) that I was going to by for myself. Then I saw the $14.99 price tag. Really? On a 30 year old St. John's Bay shirt? Ugh. On another note, I had no idea Zegna made for Versace. Nice! Had some good finds today. BB Golden Fleece Seven Folds. One is NWT. [​IMG] [​IMG] Charvet and a couple BB ties. I normally don't buy regular BB ties but these were too cool to pass up. [​IMG] [​IMG] Vintage Nike track jacket. Late 70's maybe? Probably not worth too much. I have a hard time with vintage Nike. Only sure bet I know is the vintage pinwheel logo stuff. [​IMG] [​IMG] Picked one of these up a year or two ago on instinct. Sold it and was so glad I picked it up. Found another today. I was feeling :bounce2: until I saw there was no power cord. It does have the photo board thing that my other one was missing. I'm gonna buy a replacement power supply and have my fingers crossed that it works! [​IMG] [​IMG]

    ^ Quoting myself...it was an attempt to reference The Matrix. Not terribly sure I hit my mark with it though.

    thanks all of you guys for the answers, Totally gonna go back to the GW tomorrow...

    I was a bit surprised by this shop anyway... Saw a Burberrys suite (written with an "s" old school style), a Christian Dior jacket, 2 Samuelsohn jackets, 2 Hugo Boss jackets... the rest was crap.

    Wondering if anything has a resale value though...

    I also see a very rare thing IMO : a Dormeuil jacket!

    Your Tellasons or something else? If it's your Tellasons they're sanforized and don't need to be soaked.
