1. I'd like to announce that animated avatars are now available again. You'll have to reload, but they are once more possible.

    We've been doing a ton of work behind the scenes. The site load speed was already under 1/2 of what Huddler's was, on average, and we installed cloudflare, which means that the site should be even faster. A ton more will go on in the weeks and months to come, and some things will be more visibile, and some less.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    ^Nice finds, and you can probably sell the Brioni.

    Love the Aquascutum, ID.

    That (circuitry-inspired?) Brioni tie is pretty neat, I'd like it a lot if it were in a different colour palette

    I passed on a Louis Vuitton necktie that I couldn't decide was real or fake. It was only $10, but looked like it had be rumpled up in the bottom of someone's closet. Anyone ever seen fake LV neckties before?

    On vacation here in SoCal. Hit about 5 thrift shops today and came out with a few items. Nothing exciting, though.

    - 2 recent Salvatore Ferragamo ties with cool patterns (one of men fencing and the other of some ancient roman scene)

    - Custom suit from Elevee custom Clothing made for Phoenix Suns player Robin Lopez. It's huge, but I couldn't pass up my first "celebrity" owned suit for only $6. Only a few years old, too.

    - 2 Stefano Ricci for Battaglia mini gingham check shirts. Had to pass on 1 other one that had some really bad wear on the collar.

    - NWOT Robert Graham L/S shirt.

    Also had to pass on a vintage navy blue Aquascutum 3/4 rain jacket. Made in England. Aqua 5 exterior. Had some fading around the collar and dry-cleaning sheen on the edges.

    More thrifting planned for the next 2 weeks!

    Nataku, you know you're an addict when you thrift on your vacations (unfortunately I'm guilty of this as well).

    I've found a couple celebrity things as well, they're fun but what can you do with them?

    Haha, very true. Yeah - I tried to hold back, but this was my first so I had to grab it. I'll probably just use it for bragging rights with my friends who are into sports (I couldn't care less about sports). Eventually I'll pass it onto one of them or someone who'll keep it as memorabilia.

    An H. Freeman for B. Altman charcoal sack. It's a positively bulletproof worsted and has a lot of hand tailoring. The buttonholes, collar, and bits of the lining are hand done and the side body is not a separate piece from the forepart. There's a fish cut that runs down from the underarm and ends just below the pocket. $9 or $10.

    Yeah, I heard it's been really rainy this past week. We actually didn't see much rain until today. We did go to Knotts Berry farm today and the rain spoiled the last bit, but we got a good amount of the rides done before the rain moved in. It was a bit cooler than I had expected, though! Oh well, I was prepared and wore jeans and a long sleeve shirt!

    Nice! Knott's Berry Farm! I go to school like 2 hours away from there.
