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.

    good stuff, you were asking who they were for, I'm assuming you found the name on the small end of the tie "Oak Hall Since 1859"


    Those Cable & Co shoes are absolutely amazing, wish they fit.

    The label seems fine, but the fabric is not what you usually associate with Hermes, and if you were faking, why would you get the hardest detail correct (the thread loop) and not use the typical fabric and matching color liner?
    anyone have some insight?

    2nd tie from the bottom is cool.

    The rules change for Hermes non-printed ties.
    This is consistent with the woven ones I have seen and bought from very reputable sources: H lining, thread loop and label.
    But I'm not an expert.

    Astor & Black suit. This thing is AWESOME. Hand sewn everything, dual vents with a keeper,royal blue, burgundy paisley lining, the works. I just wish the lapels were a little wider. It's about a slim 40R, but the jacket is rather short at 30".

    Found my first ever pair of Polo Ralph Lauren shoes today, in fact I found 2 pair. Unfortunately both were white and in awful condition so I had to leave them.

    Also grabbed this burberry purse. No idea if its authentic yet.

    Wow! :drool: +1 on what Easy said, that T&A is crazy recent.
    These are awesome! Never heard of Pendleton Topsman. So many gorgeous sportcoats popping up on here lately! Hit a few stores today. Nothing crazy but popped a cherry today. First time seeing this label. [​IMG] [​IMG] Also picked these up. Never had luck finding any decent NSW stuff at Marshalls/TJ Maxx so these cinch-back selvedge chinos in my size were a welcome find.

    Thanks for all of the kind words fellas. Just one of those instances where persistence meets luck - after striking out at four stores, decided to make one last stop before calling it a day. Pretty sure I saw these tweeds on the rack before I even stepped foot in the store.
