    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 also found a bunch of Samuelsohn fabric suits (looked like tweeds? not sure, still a noob) and Boss suits but didn't pick them up because I wasn't sure whether they were worth picking up. Samuelsohn maybe.

    Boss suits usually have a modern fit and are more current style in respect to what one usually finds so they can be sent to that place for recycle. Samuelsohn is an excellent brand, just seems to be underrated by the general public. They make suits for other high end makers that are more household names.

    I went back to the store with Antione Walker's clothes and since some were still there I couldn't resist snapping a thrift fit pic in one of his sport coats.

    Is the general public familiar enough with Kiton to even place value on what would be sold in a department store setting or would the general public be like at Goodwill where I found Jos. Bank suits for $50 on the same rack with an Armani suit they priced at $10 because "they never heard of it before"?
