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.

    OK, boys. Prepare yourselves. It's about to rain up in here. Keep in mind: - Some of this (esp. the NWT stuff) was bought at discount store prices - Available, unless marked NA. I will do the best I can, but I need to recoup this investment and fast. Plus, the best I could do in any event would be pure proxy and that's probably going to be expensive by thread standards. But feel free to give me a shout with an offer and I will do what I can. - This is all one day. In the order I have them photographed. Paul Stuart/Sammy 44XL.

    Well, my haul has been cut down significantly due to holes that went unnoticed until I had the tags off. So my Ibex shirt find, and one Versace sweater find are DOA, but there is some other stuff. Everything is available, at least until tonight/this afternoon when they head off to the great swap meet of the internet.

    And then I wanted to get an authenticity check on this, and hopefully some pointers on what makes it legit (or not) so that I don't have to keep asking in the future.

    Then a ton of other fairly boring stuff, I did find my first Steffano Ricci tie last night, but it looked like someone had dipped the wide end in a bowl of soup. :(
    Sometimes it's obvious why things have ended up in a thrift store.

    Sometimes the E-thrift game is just silly. On our edition of the bay, biker inspired jackets have been bring in cash like crazy lately, we're talking $200 and up for no name stuff.
    Just spotted a Schott Perfecto model 118 in great condition with no bids, ended up costing me less than $90. What the? Like, really people?

    Totally intend to wear this alongside eazye while doing Chi-town.

    Some ties from yesterday with 3 from a trade with Ian mixed in.

    And yes, that is a Nautica in there too. Is that a first?

    I picked up an odd SC today.
    Corneliani ID 3 button, 2 patch pockets, dual vent, throat latch and 4 button working cuffs.
    Zip-out/zipper-up turtleneck sweater half-lining. Jacket itself feels like a type of microsuede.
    Sized EU 50 R
    Available

    Funny, I bought almost the exact same Corneliani jacket yesterday at a consignment shop on Melrose. Same color, micro suede but the inner chest panel where it zips is slightly different. I think it will be a very versatile addition to the wardrobe.
