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.

    How exactly do these suits find their way here for such a good price?

    Is it something like John buys a 4k Purple Label from a discount store for 2k, 8 years later decides to consign in and it end up for sale for like $500 and 2 years later a SF enthusiast decides he is bored with it so he posts here?

    Much of it comes from outlets, discount stores and clearance sales. Other items are, as you mention, stuff people bought and didn't wear/no longer want.

    Yeah I reckon most of it is the result of successive markdowns- seasonal sales, clearance sales, department store brand clearance stores, Marshall's- every time a garment makes it to the next step in this process unsold, you'll see a price reduction. Hence the prevalence of stuff like bright tweeds and windowpanes as compared to navy blazers.

    ^ +1. There is a reason truly classic items in common sizes are hard to find in B&S.
