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 hate to add more flame to the fire but you're just very hypocritical and accuse others of criticizing you. In the post I spoiliered, one of many, you basically criticized/attacked just about everyone in the thread. It would benefit you to look at things from our perspective. You lied about your finds, post lengthy paragraphs that lack substance, and try to "school" us on the basic concepts/principles of economics that you've somehow groomed to represent the contemporary capitalist system. My friend works at Toy's R' Us in the digital marketing department (he's the one that designs those email blasts your receive in your spam). Just because he displays my little pony ads doesn't create demand for my little pony; there was obviously a demand for that product from market testing etc. and the supply is generated by the demand of that product. Your finds are better than most, they are certainly better than mine, but have a slice of humble pie.

    Well. I miss two days and this shit falls apart. Thrift trip to Chicago over the weekend. Photo dump this evening.

    Also, I need more turtleneck in my life.

    My entry for the challenge, and probably the last fit pic at the current spot. The wife and I close on a new house next week, the down payment of which was partially thrift funded. :slayer: :slayer:

    I asked my alterations girl for no break, but she definitely left quite a bit of extra material down there. What do you guys think? I was maybe just going to leave in the sprit of the more relaxed cut of this suit.
    Vintage PRL tweed topcoat, from silvrewarebandit
    Vintage PRL 3 piece flannel chalkstripe, eBay
    RLBL shirt, thrifted
    Paul Stuart tie, thrifted
    Vintage French Shriner short wings I posted yesterday, thrifted

    edit: I should mention that its still freezing here, hence the flannel and tweed.

    Congrats on the house man!

    I like that little bit of break. Nice flow into the shoes I think. Awesome fit as usual.

    @capnwes go to coastal.com and buy some 30 dollar glasses. All of mine are from there. Unless your prescription is crazy, they'll be fine.

    that is the one of the coolest things I have seen on here, But I don't think its the type of item that should be casually worn in a thrift fit....... The SS were some VERY BAD boys, you can never detach that jacket from that. If I were a holocaust survivor and I spotted you in a Nazi Officers jacket, who knows what kind of emotions that would bring out, I might try and kill you. If I had that piece Id want to wear it too, but only a real fascist should wear that coat IMO. Thats a villains jacket.

    I had a Schott black leather peacoat sitting in my closet for the better part of a year. Thing was super badass but I couldn't help feeling that I looked too much like a member of the SS when trying it on. I finally had to let it go without ever leaving my house wearing it.

    Lol I don't know if it was supposed to be ironic but HB most certainly felt "obligated" to make amends, nobody forced them. They were really concerned by the perception of their brand from jewish buyers (after a controversy that started in 1997).

    However I never read about VW or Ford doing such a thing :s

    while I do understand what you're saying, this jacket has no outward signs of it being part of a nazi uniform, the buttons on the front are generic naval buttons which were the same style used for ~30 years or so. The backs of the buttons are stamped with imperial eagles, but that is all. All of this leads me to believe this is more than likely a Volksmarine jacket than Kriegsmarine, but the point being, it does not scream "Nazi uniform" and none of you, or very few of you would have had any idea had I not pointed it out.
