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.

    ^^ I have seen the script on non-purple label stuff such as womens clothing and a Ralph Lauren golf jacket that I have.

    Ah, I take your meaning. Originally thought you meant to tuck the belt through itself instead of that second button.

    Damn, if that's the listing I think it was, I tried contacting her before and never heard back. Bravo! Looked like an amazing amount of loot!

    I've not seen script on a polo square, but I'm not an authority on the issue.

    Could be. It was a two month old listing. Missed out on the 10 pairs of Allen Edmonds, but a lot of them looked like ugly styles. Ended up with two sport coats and two tuxedos for $25 each. Currently photographing.

    Nice. I've got a been had Polo full Norfolk that I ethrifted several months ago, still need to post pics. Might pull it out of storage tonight.



    Approximately 480 miles. However, I should have been more specific: I need to Thrift some tweed, gots to fill the store. I'm pretty sure that if I showed up at any random thrift in PA, all I'd find is Haggar and tumbleweeds...

    That's the one. I emailed her a few weeks back with no response. Glad somebody on the forum was able to profit there.

    I think this was my most disappointing day since I started this hustle.

    Any of you big guys need a nice odd jacket? It's an EU size 60 at the store...grey, 92/8 wool/cashmere. I stop when I hit it every time. It's from a local store and nice. Their private label is by Isaia, but their house label just has a generic German language tag that I see on lots of stuff. Grey is a bit tricky as an odd jacket, but it's a really rare size, so I thought I'd offer to proxy. I haven't picked it up and probably won't unless someone wants it, so no measurements. It's €15 + shipping (€16 for small packages to the US...that's the cheapest/actual cost).

    If you're a lurker and interested, sign up and let me know.

    Had a couple of these recently. Usually, I can find at least 2-3 things in a store where I'm like "well, if I find anything cool, I'll throw this in. If not, I can leave it." Couple trips where I didn't even find anything like that. Being out for a couple hours and coming back with nothing is a bummer.


    ....said the hoarder.

    I feel like with this kind of stuff, its more of an investment in advertising, I'd be surprised if they made more than one or two. If someone has any more insight on that, please fill me in, I've always been curious about these kind of wildly out there things with stratospheric pricing.

    A few finds before a meeting. Hopefully at the weekend I'll get some of the stuff filling my office photographed. A boy can dream...

    More cashmere socks. I bought the socks and sweater at one place and the cashier complimented my ability to match.

    First time checking women's scarfs. Authentic? I'm completely clueless.

    Took a $20 gamble here since I know that Balenciaga handbags are stupid expensive. Didn't even know they made men's stuff. Is this stuff worth anything?
