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 know some guys don't like J Crew but I couldn't pass. They're in great condition and a better deal than outlet prices. The Armani is beautiful and pictures don't do it justice. The Alan Flusser is awesome, fits perfect, looks great on me! I'm a very happy man.

    RL is 100% silk. Descendants is just a cool shirt that I like. I like it more than English Laundry. The RL was the most expensive purchase of the day.

    Banana Republic is linen, YSL is very soft cotton and looks good on me, Burberry is made in England, and Lacoste is slim fit. The BR and YSL both fit awesome and are in great condition.

    The best part is everything cost less than what I paid for one Lacoste polo at full price. Lol, I remember waiting for half yearly sales to get 33% off.

    Everything I purchased I plan on wearing. I'll probably flip only when I have too much clothing and start narrowing purchases down.

    No! If it fits nicely and you like them, they are all keepers. Enjoy them, wear them and as you find better stuff, meaning stuff you like more not x brand, then you can redonate these.

    Thanks! I try on everything and only purchase what fits and looks good. I put back stuff that doesn't fit like the Armani. My very first time thrifting I purchased 5 RL polo's @ $4.99 each. I thought it was a gift compared to searching TJ Maxx to buy one at $29.99. Everything I buy has no more wear than a new purchase after washing four times. Even if they're not ideal for flipping its cloths I am happy to have and I love how it looks on me.
