    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.

    Well first I'm going to hit up a few countries in south east Asia, but yeah.

    The other option was in Philly...

    Then the school in Worcester gave me 30k a year more in funding. Now trust me when i say that i really want to be in Philly. I have family there, i love the city, and so on. But having 120k in loans without even taking interest into account was just too much to pass up on...

    Dang. I just ran into some old Korean dude in DC and said he was robbed while staying at a youth motel(?) So I gave him $20 so that he can take a Chinatown bus to Lancaster, PA. Hope he was telling the truth. He said he came to Georgetown to teach economics. Why the heck did he think that hotels are too expensive in DC and end3d up going to a youth motel(?) He doesn't sound like a smart Econ professor at UPenn.

    And good luck RTC!

    How do you say "thanks for the booze" in Korean?

    Maybe he needed it for his new watch? I knew that name sounded familiar...

    Good call. He might also need to get a Sinn with that argon gas filling serviced.

    I was at a charity event to help raise funds for overseas missionaries today. We sold food for the most part. But one group was in charge of selling donated clothes. I paid $1 for this jacket and it appears it is a botched purchased. I was hoping it would turn out better.

    for the gents who wear shell monks or any type of straps, is it typical to experience slippage on double leather soles? i'm thinking, given the soles thickness, it may take sometime before the slippage goes away?

    Noodles, please take this in a spirit of gentle humor, but you got conned twice today.

    But seriously, if that's not an orphaned suit jacket, it surely looks like one. You could wear DB well, but I don't like how low that button stance is on you. Probably not worth getting the sleeves altered. But you can re-donate, and do even more good.

    A dollar for that jacket was $20 too much.

    I have a pair, and when it rained the other day I was sliding the whole way home. I'm about 10-15 wears in so not sure when exactly I'll be ok. Hope this helps

    Dang it. That jacket is too small so I gave it to my wife. But then she threw it back at my face. [​IMG]

    Got a Yanko belt. Made in Spain.
    1.25 inch in width.
    Too bright?

    I like that belt, but you've got to stop taking pics of your crotch.

    I want a new suit. A charcoal gray suit.
    I ain't going to Suit Supply. I tried but the quality in DC is terrible and the sizing is just dang inconsistent.
    Formosa is out of stock.
    I ain't going to Nieman Marcus for name brand suits at full retail.
    That leaves the likes of Kent Wang. But the trousers that I received last week was made in China. Are all their stuff (suits) made in China?
    And B&T cannot be done until next February/March/April time frame.

    You've managed to exhaust all the suit makers in the world :lol:

    You should have a good grip on your size now and time to start shopping the SF marketplace
