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.

    Those shoes look great. Too bad the sizing is super narrow, the color of each shoe is different and they are a little small for me.

    The Invertere raincoat posted by RJman, from seller Valerie Wafer, will probably be heavier and have a more pronounced twill that you might expect (it looks just like the fabric on a raincoat I bought from her). The size is probably closer to a 42 than 40. It won't be a form-fitting coat by any means but it won't give out on you for a long time.

    Aren't those the cheap non C&J peal desert boots that only retail for $200ish?
    But...but...it's a good deal! Spoo said so! How about these "Mint" Peals, "in absolute superb condition (stamp on inside of shoe has faded...but visible) and more importantly, the uppers are perfect and bear no scuffs, scratches,etc." http://cgi.ebay.com/MINT-Peal-Brooks...item20b6cdcb74

    Those are a prime example of why I'm hesitant to get any wholecuts. Maybe they just never saw shoe trees, but no way I'd call those "mint"...

    wholecuts are really nice...the seller is really bad, don't let a bad seller deter you...actually, on second thought, let them deter you...it'll leave more for me

    That is ridiculously cool.

    Thanks for the link a few days back on the Emma Willis (Drake's) tie. I won the auction for it today.
