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.

    That's all well and good but where were you last evening before the shirt began to organize my wardrobe? While I was sleeping, he collared the rest of the Shirts and has them buttoned up in line right behind him, leaving me completely cuffed. I wasn't too worried at the news until I learned that the Pants had pledged their support. Turns out they have pretty deep pockets. My Footwear collective wants to turn on their heel and walk out. Luckily for me, when my Suits and Sport Coats were canvassed, thanks to the erratic behavior off the Odd Jackets and the fact that there is almost no Vesting, they won't be a factor and they mostly just vented.

    I can't be as certain about the Ties though since they might go either way.

    The Boxers are firmly wedged behind the Pants butt they're thinking of filing a brief. The Tees claim they won't be out muscled and the Gloves are having a fit. I've got the Scarves wrapped up and the Outerwear is mostly grandfathered. Unfortunately, the Pocket Squares can tell when my nose is out of joint so they've decided to pick-it.

    All this means that I might have to lockout the closet since most of them have a union label and they're invoking their zipper clause. I'm going to meet today to see if I can get them to agree to pattern bargaining so I can show just cause for the additional laundry.

    Wish me luck!

    Einstein out.

    Had some stuff I purchased before the start of April get here in the mail today. It was a nice reprieve.

    Who's laundry are you going to be doing by the way? You don't have to say, but I sure would like to be there to see it happen. I don't know what all of what you typed means but i'll focus on the part I understood and wish you luck.

    Duly noted Private Orwell.




    We leave God out of this thread, know why?
    Because in this thread, I AM the Big Mac around here, and you will chow down.




    We are alert Private Jacket. Caught you over on another thread thinking of spending.

    I'm too late to participate. But I've had no clothing purchases since late in 2012 when I replaced some staples that were worn. I do regularly shine my shoes. Most laundering is done in house. My dry cleaning never reaches $100 during a month.

    Best of luck fellows.

    Well I got something to report - I special ordered (and pair for) a pair of Levi's Made & Crafted chino's way back in March which arrived today. When I went to pick them up today and I noticed a sign saying Levi's Made & Crafted was 30% off for this weekend only - I asked if they would give me the discount even though I ordered and paid for it weeks ago - the sales associate said he would bend the rules and give me store credit, but he'd get in trouble for giving me a refund since the sign clearly said "No price adjustments on previous purchases."

    Naturally I couldn't pass this up - so I picked up a few pairs of socks. At first I only picked up 3 pairs which was almost exactly the amount I saved - so it wouldn't have a net purchase - but when the guy rang them up, I was still $4 short, and he couldn't give me any kind of refund. After milling around some more, I picked up another pair of Paul Smith socks - and ended up paying an extra $30. So I guess I broke the rules - but sometimes you gotta spend money to save money. :happy:

    I figure now that I've done the crime and am about to do the time - I may as well let you revel in my sin. So here's some pics!

    Donate a pair of socks. You gotta show the other people how it's done.

    I admire your honesty, and you are correct; you broke the rules and this wasn't an emergency. Cough*nicehaulthough*cough.
    Choose a number between 1 & 6 but you can't choose 2 because Dig has that one....hasn't reported in on that either, now that I come to think of it...

    Private Orwell, how are you holding up over there?
    If you see any NPC members talk about spending in other threads, let us know about it.
    We should have some Thought Crime punishments just for mentioning spending.
    I'm open to suggestions.


    We are now entering the first weekend of the challenge.
    Hope everyone stays strong. I am spend-free over here and leather lotioning all of my shoes...all 150 pairs of them.
