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.

    Used leather jacket with ripped zipper at a Salvation Army store. $10. + another $5 to have my tailor put on a new zipper. That jacket's still going strong after a decade and it effing rules.

    I'll have to agree on Hanes V-necks, they're well worth the change. My track sweats from college are still holding up quite well, despite how often I've worn them.

    My girlfriend snagged me a perfect fitting blazer that originally sold at Barneys from some Italian maker....

    Cost? 5 US Dollars, and it literally fit so perfectly I think I will model all future blazers after it tailoring-wise. Perfection

    Also I love my black Levis 511s so much, I bought 2 pairs
