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.

    good morning gentlemen! i always get help here! simple question; used suits.

    OK, i own ONE Oxxford suit. i know the history, and quality. cannot afford them now. on this forum, and elsewhere, like "an affordable wardrobe" you can buy used suits. i am a simple size, should be easy enough.

    is there any reason i should not buy used suits? insect pests? could always dry clean. one favorite thing i have is a Lock fedora from around the 1940's i had it cleaned, came out like brand new.

    any advice would be great!! I am not a multi millionaire, used suits might be fantastic.

    Nothing wrong with used clothing as long as it looks good.

    If you want to be fancy, the gussied-up term is "resale" or "vintage." Women have been buying "resale" and "vintage" for years.

    With the concerns about bedbugs you have to be careful. If you have a reputable resale store in your area, patronize it. In the big cities there are vintage shows. Otherwise, buy from eBay only from reputable dealers.

    Good luck.
