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,

    Just arrived in my mailbox today: these Tiffany & Co. sterling silver cuff links, bought on eBay for $20, shipping included.

    Sorry for the blurry cell phone picture.

    Today:

    a pair of brown wool brooks brothers trousers

    a pair of white sperry top siders slipons that look unworn

    a blue striped made to order BB dress shirt with french cuffs, which I decided had sleeves that were too short once I got home. Not sure if they can be mended by tailoring but its a nice shirt...

    + 1, lost my job....so Thursdays have been relegated as thrifting day. All others are sit and home and relax days until the weather warms up (-7 with -27 below windchills at the moment).

    Thrifting is a long slog. You can't go into it expecting to find anything. You'll be disapointed.

    On a related note I picked up a vintage HSM topcoat in a lovely olive/black glenplaid.

    Just won these on eBay. C&J for Peal & Co., on the 317 last.

    Gorgeous. If those don't fit, I'll gladly buy them. I've been looking for preforated loafers for a minute now.

    Haha, yeah - it's great. What sucks is relying on eBay selling to pay the bills!

    Thrifting Karma is great. On my way to the Minneapolis Sally, I pulled over to help an older lady who's car stalled (by the way, whatever happened to good
    old-fashioned help? She said she had been there for 20 minutes and only got stares". She had no AAA or cell phone. I helped push her car into a parking lot and then we called a loacl shop from my cell, then called her daughter to pick her up.

    Alltogether not a bad day:

    Missoni 3 btn blazer

    Arny's tab-collar shirt (gonna flip, I hate tab collars)

    Katharine Hamnett BD shirt

    L.L. Bean wool shirt (Made in the USA)

    NWT unhemmed Zanella trousers ( to flip)

    NWOT PRPS jeans (Made in China, but what the hell for $7)

    NWOT Ted Baker shirt (not the cheap Macys line, this is the line that uses numbered sizes ie:1,2,3...)

    Shirt from Unknown Brand called Utility Mode.99

    NWOT Raw Black H&M Jeans. Don't know if they're anything special, but they have a cloth tag at the top that says "&denim.EST.2005" on the back it says " First Edition & denim PreLaunch. Exclusively made from the finest denim with attention to authentical details that all together just will look better the longer you wear them. Treat them with love &denim with love you back. Full Edition in store 2005.09.15." (to flip, I wish I was a 30" waist!)

    Another good haul from the local Sally: 2 bags of stuff for $15.....thanks to a good friend working the register. Sadly, nothing fit so it's all gonna be flipped.

    ..
    - Navy DB Peak Lapel Canali "Lana Cashmere" blazer with MOP buttons. Fabric by Cerruti 1881. Mint condition

    ..


    *Sigh* Wish I woulda found something that fit me. Well, maybe with the procedes will contribute to a Tim Hamilton blazer on sale at Jake's website.



    Would this be the one?
