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 just reunited a suit for the first time.

    Found a Brooksease jacket on sunday and picked it up despite being an orphan because BB is rare out here and usually does pretty well. Two days later i'm in another store on the other side of town flipping through the pants rack and wait whats that? the pants! Pretty cool imo.

    Oh, and this: who puts a British WWII bomber command patch on a cashmere Brioni? Came off without leaving any marks though

    I picked up a full Loro Piana suit a few weeks ago and I can say without a doubt, it was the nicest suit I've ever laid hands on.

    o lawdz, pics?!. yes the orphan i grabbed was "nice". but the proportions are super weird. feels like its for a danny devito body type. wide as hell with shortish arms. sort of visible in the photo.

    My apologies, I will refrain from this in the future. Thought I'd share some recent finds. Thank you for the heads up sir.

    Wasn't previously familiar with any of these labels, but seemed high quality/well made, and when i googled them later i seemed to have done pretty well. Also picked up a HF 15.5-34 white with pale green and pink stripe not pictured because i'm currently wearing it under a shawl collared sweater.

    Random question - did most of you (the frequent posters here) already own the mannequins/dress forms you're always displaying your finds on, or did you buy them for the express purpose of posting on this thread? Obviously not expecting an answer from everyone, just curious if this is a commonly owned item by private individuals or just unique to this environment.

    Before I started posting here, I would dress Oscar (my mannequin) every night with the clothes I was going to wear the next day. [​IMG]

    I suspect it's mostly the people who sell on eBay/Etsy/etc, posting mannequin pics. Maybe there are those out there who don't sell but bought a mannequin to display their scores on SF/Tumblr/whatever, but I'm guessing that's a small minority.
