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.

    All that stuff appear to be from the same donor?

    Appreciate the love, dudes. Thanks. Dropped some serious cash, but well worth it.



    Not all, but a lot. Frankly, I think it's the same donor (or two) as Fastlife and I have been finding stuff from over the last few weeks. Numerous 40R/L pieces that are just barely outside my fat beer gut size range. And a slew of more trad pieces (remember all those ties?) plus some clearly custom stuff in one size up (aka, mine).

    SHIRT HAS BEEN CLAIMED

    I have a shirt that needs a home - free of charge. It's from My Tailor, brand new and never worn. It was from my first order and it's just too small for me. It's non-iron fabric, white with blue stripes (edges of the stripe are navy, inside is light blue). Mother of pearl buttons. The collar is 2" high at the back.

    It would fit someone with an athletic build - details below:

    -16.5 - 17" neck
    -34/35 sleeve
    -Wears a 40-41 jacket
    -Trouser waist of 32-33"

    Do I need to examine Aquascutum ties more closely or something?

    So I heard that my local GW put out a bunch of crazy suits and other men's clothing last night and everything was base priced. Everything was gone by the time I got there late this morning besides a couple recent BB casual extra-slim shirts and the like which I left. My size but wasn't really feeling them.

    A friend found this at the local GW today. Thought you camera buffs might appreciate it. Canon EF 70-200mm Zoom Lens.

    I did pick up a few clothing pieces today. Here's something I thought someone on here smaller than I (40 R) might be interested in. Available at cost +time/gas/shipping.

    Recent Talbott Carmel by Coppley blue/black check cotton sportcoat. 2 btn. 1/4 lined. Side vents.

    Here's some really cool non-clothing stuff.

    Some underground comix. I never find these. Been after the Zap issues for a long time. I'll be busy reading for awhile now....

    Records. Beatles White Album and Dylan's Self Portrait are UK imports.

    Bose wave radio that needs some tinkering. Functions properly but no sound from the speakers.:brick:

    And this lovely wooden box.

    Today was bittersweet, though. While I scored some solid records, I missed out on a stack of OG pressing Beatles albums and a original copy of The Velvet Underground & Nico with an unpealed banana sticker on the cover. :fu: :brick:

    Damn, $3.99 is crazy good for a $2k+ lens.

    Super deal on the lens. If your friend decides to sell then look me up.

    Easily the best non-clothing find of the thread.

    I am not sure about Aquascutum. I am going to give it to a friend anyway.
