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,

    Yessir. Specifically Caminito in La Boca. And I know what you mean, BsAs is magical. I'll be back there in June as my SO finishes up her semester there.

    gonna be a tough decision to make in the near future. I bought a pair Red Wing Iron Rangers in my size for $150 shipped. I probably shouldn't keep both but it's crossed my mind...

    Thrifty bros:

    Can I salvage this blazer despite the rippling? A quick steam makes it worse.

    Confirmed Canali. Faconnable used both Cantarelli and Canali, although I expect Canatarelli mostly. The Tailleur line is now gone (maybe since Nordstrom sold the brand?) and I don't know about currently but on the time warp of the thrift racks Canali is out there... this one wasn't a showstopper but was nice enough,100% cashmere, still-fashionable double vent...

    Are those Wolverines? They look good on you (esp. for the price!) and although I love my Red Wings (875s w/ lug soles and Beckman moc toe) I've never been a fan of the Iron Rangers. I think you've gotta pick yer spots with the RW Heritage stuff - a lot of the ones I've seen have canvas lining the toe box instead of leather...

    Oh my bad, I should have said what they were! Frye roughouts with a really comfortable crepe sole. Definitely keepers.

    I guess I'll have to see about the IR's when they get in. Might have to justify both :D

    Had a pretty shitty start to the day, when I found a giant crack in my windshield. Then decided to go thrifting with both an awesome stop and a shitty stop.

    First the good: (Everything is available btw)

    5x Canali shirts

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    3x Brioni shirts

    [​IMG]

    Corneliani and Armani
    [​IMG]

    Zegna, Borreli, and Thomas Pink
    [​IMG]

    Brooks Brothers wool/cashmere blent
    [​IMG]


    Canali pants

    [​IMG]


    Zegna
    [​IMG]

    Paul Smith and Charles Tyrwhitt

    Charles Tyrwhitt and Etro

    Versace and Ferragamo



    [​IMG]

    Brooks Brothers belt

    And then the end:
    So I was at a thrift store, about to pay, when alas, I notice a Loro Piana quilted vest behind the counter. I ask if on hold for someone. They reply "Probably since its back here right?." So they have no idea whose it is. So I ask if they could find out if its for hold or not, because if not, then I will gladly pay their price. So a lady goes around asking, and no one claims the vest. At this point, I reiterate that I will physically buy it right there on the spot. I was then told to leave the store and buy the two items that I had on me or leave with nothing. I was neither confrontational nor rude to them.

    Needless to say, this was a very frustrating end to the day.
