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.

    Cheers,

    Are these really old Aldens or fakes?

    Well, guys, went back to ye olde thrift store to pick up some sloppy seconds. I called ahead and she had placed what shirts were left in a back room so that I could go through them. (pics to come later) I picked up many NWT Bill's, R.Talbott, and Bruli shirts. All in all, I left with 70 brand new shirts. (my wife will be soooo pleased) My house is fulleth and runneth over.

    Well, No. 3 is mostly made in China less it's the Heritage model but depending on what year. The general rule is that the smaller the number, the more desirable except for like No. 14 or something. But all of the Evisu tag says "Custom Made" on it.

    [​IMG]

    The No. 3 I've seen were mostly made in Japan, some being made in other countries, and the later models are made in China.

    But could you do me a favor and post some more deetz like the tags, rivets and back of the buttons? Thanks! I've never seen a Made in USA tag. It could be American cotton/denim made...Would like to be [​IMG]

    Good call.

    Your wife will be pleased when you sell all of that and take her out to an awesome dinner and still have more 99% of the proceeds left after you account for what you paid.

    My temp job ended, so I'll have a bit more time to post again. I've had several firsts in the last couple of months, including in this week's shoe haul. All are reserved for my friend Mr. Bay, except for the Tretorns, which are for me.

    AE Cameron; AE Grayson; AE Randolph (which they should bring back)

    Church's Prima Classe; Church's Prima Classe; brand spankin' Tretorns

    brank spankin' AE Strandmok; the 1st Ferragamo's I've picked up; the first John Lobbs (Lopez) I've seen.
    Not pictured - white lace-up Tretorns that are soaking in oxyclean.

    I'm about to do research for quality info on Church's Prima Classe (made in Spain?) and size info on the Lobbs' serial number (below) but if any of you can clue me in, please do!

    What are those first ones on the left, the ones with the blue trim? If they are an 11 D then holler at me for a good trade :)

    Oy, the times they are a-changing...my local Goodwill priced a used shirt at $19.99. And I paid it. They're catching on, albeit slowly.
