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,

    I'm no expert, but Levi's didn't incorporate the hand warmer pockets until I think the 80s. I've collected a couple of these (one from the early 70s, and a blanket-lined version from probably a little later). Neither have the slash pockets and I actually prefer the way they fit. They are also fuller in the shoulders and arms than the later versions, and it seems like they're a bit shorter. But, the one you got looks to have a nice patina going on, so that's cool. Otherwise, I'd have taken a pass.

    Lesson learned tonight: Don't thrift with @concealed. I hit the canonical route (shoes, outerwear, suits) and got nothing. He hit the ties...Duchamp, nwt BBGF. Then the shirts...BoO, Gitman Vintage, etc

    This worth grabbing? V neck in size XL. Seems about as nice as the Alan Paine sweaters I've come across:

    Vintage people. Came across this very old LL Bean workwear(?) unlined blazer. No rips or tears but definitely dirt and spots- definitely has been used, but I imagine a good cleaning will bring it back. Best I can determine is this is 50s or 60s. Anyone good at dating LL Bean?

    Florian's find made me remember a question I ask myself a lot of times. Anyone every find something that's in otherwise really nice shape except for a tear or a few buttons that look like they were ripped off and wonder if the damage happened in store from either a careless worker or some idiot customer? Saw some crazy looking guy try on a shirt in the aisle last week and he literally looked like he was trying to pull a "Hulk" and burst the thing at the seams. Kept flexing and pushing his chest out. Those poor buttons were holding on for dear life. Sadly I've witnessed much stranger behavior at my local haunts.

    Lol sometimes I just think "jeez, this shirt is basically new, the previous owner just fucked it up after a few wears" (which was the case for this Barba...). I prefer not to think about if it's the workers in the store [​IMG]
