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.

    Changes for me. I generally aquire my holy grail thing as soon as I save up enough cash.

    Right now I want a vintage rolex air king on a croc strap. Also want mto whiskey shell wingtip boots with beveled waist from martegani, and a brogue-cap balmoral boot in #4.

    finally, lost worlds bedford car coat in russet.

    I imagine this to be ridiculously unwearable with anything I have btw. I jsut think its cool.
    None of these will be purchased till at least march.

    Just an epic piece thats at the top of your list. Something you have to own at some point. Or maybe something thats not necessarily attainable.

    as of right now the only two things I want are a white bentley cont gt speed which I'll have by April [​IMG] and a platinum IWC Big Pilot. I've had chances at incredible deals on new IWC's but never the platinum BP. I will have one of those in the next month or two. I have about all I'll ever need so I don't really have a "grail" per se. I've quit looking at watch forums because they just killed my ability to save/invest.
