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 am still going strong. It isn't that hard though when saving for a pair of Carmina. I don't know if it will be a jodhpur boot, a chelsea boot, a chukka boot or a balmoral boot yet.

    I'm still in, as well. But I have to admit that this has been harder than I thought it was going to be.

    That this is already a challenge -- especially after only five days -- is a pretty good indicator why this pledge is a good thing for me. :satisfied:

    Nope. Was in NYC over the Labor Day weekend - Purchases at Bergdorf, Brooks Brothers, J. Press, and Barneys Warehouse Sale.

    I'll have to see if I can get all of my September shopping in by Friday midnight.


    I'll do my best and get back with you.

    This doesn't seem to be in the spirit of the no purchase club.

    True, and I do see that this maybe a very serious thread for a good purpose.


    However I meant no real harm.

    I'm still hanging in there. Last weekend, I accompanied my wife and daughter to the outlets northwest of Houston. The Brooks Brothers outlet had more than the usual collection of 346-branded clothing, including a glen check tie that I've been trying to find for a while. I resisted the temptation.

    Come on fellas, we're a fifth of the way through here. I'm still going strong.

    Doughie I love that pair of jodhpur boots that Carmina does. On their main website page they are in a beautiful chilli red-brown colour (Vegano??) but when you try to purchase the only option is traditional dark brown.

    Do you or anyone else looking in know how to order the chilli ones?

    Stay strong my friends! 24 days to freedom!

    In order to help to not purchase anything, Doughie should not answer your question.

    That's OK. By the time I pluck up the courage and the cash to take the plunge it will be October!

    Sold a few things yesterday, and have resisted purchasing thus far. I am doing much better than I expected.

    Most all of my stuff here is so beautifully maintained I have little to do. My S.O. has me doing all of her shoes and handbags now I suppose after that I will have to lotion all of my shoes and belts. That will easily take me to the end of the month.

    I was highly considering buying a few t shirts but i stopped myself. My only issue is next week i have a trunk show to go to which is ok because i dont have to pay until they come in, but there were some shoes OTR that I was holding off on buying but may end up pulling the trigger on them.
