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.

    A few shirts I've picked up recently:

    Gant by Michael Bastian (very slim M, available):

    [​IMG]

    contrast collar and contrast pocket (very subtle, stripes vs. checks)


    Ministry of Supply tech-fabric dress shirt (L, available)

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]


    Dries van Noten striped shirt (EU 50, available)

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]


    Robert Graham shirt (first one I've found with MoP buttons)

    Tom Ford checkered shirt (16.5, available)

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]


    Robert James selvedge chambray workshirt (L, available)

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    made in USA with corozo buttons, four gauntlet buttons, club collar, selvedge details


    Fray limegreen herringbone dress shirt (15.5R, available)

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    puts the TF above to shame, very thick MoP buttons, crow's foot stitch, shanked buttons, great fabric


    Pretty sure the TF and Robert James are NWOT.


    And a chore coat:

    Tellason x Smith + Butler, NWT. Not sure what to do with this one--it's slim-fitting, so it fits me pretty well, but I just don't see myself wearing this very often. On the other hand, if I were in the market for a chore coat, this one is pretty nice.

    7 pairs of Dior Homme is ridiculous, but I made the mistake of talking to the manager and finding out that was a drop in the bucket for what that guy donated :(


    Crappy cell phone pics of the latest pair

    Don't think they're a fan of flippers, I go through racks pretty quickly, but I always smile at them and they just shoot back a blank face. One lady says "hi jimmy" everytime I see her which is nice. But my name is Jason

    only had time to hit one store yesterday, but that isn't always a bad thing. For me quality always trumps quantity, and this was the perfect example.

    available. wish they were just a bit smaller, can't make them work...

    Lands end knit. i know its lands end but i don't have a green knit so this will fill a whole nicely. also does Ferragamo make ties for lands end? because i have several ferragamo ties and they all have the same 100% silk made in italy tag...
    also another RT 7 fold. I always seem to find them in blue so this pink is a welcome surprise!

    And then these. i will not be spoiling. I've been considering pulling the trigger on a new pair or at least a pair off ebay for a while now. So glad i waited. sitting in the glass case by the register. i saw them in there and was thinking they would be asking a couple hundred considering there was an old brioni jacket hanging up for 125$. i know that pricing isnt always discussed here but since they are for me and this is a bragging thread i cant help myself. i asked here to take them out and was shocked to see they were only asking 50. i would have happily payed that. HOWEVER, turn out tuesdays are 50%, so i got them for 500$ off the asking price on j. crew website. look hardly worn besides some mild creasing. the soles honestly look like they have never been worn outside. cant wait to wear these. just need to find some nice selvedge denim. im ashamed to admit i don't have any. always been a chinos preppy kinda guy...

    IMO those Lands' End knits are great value for money, even at retail. Plus LE do sales/coupons so frequently that you can often get them for much less.

    (edited because I remembered them being cheaper than they actually are)
