    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.

    What an exorbitant markup. They're $20-$40 here usually. They're essentially just cheap work pants like Dickies-- though I know how expensive those used to be in the UK and Europe-- a buddy from Italy said in the '90s a pair of new Dickies would fetch $200 US-- for work clothes that cost about $15 brand new in shops here at the time!!

    Yes, I had one exactly like this, same colour. (Though back in 1969 I was probably wearing size 14 and a half!) I also had one in pale green.

    Meanwhile, there is evidence from Saalburg that the Romans invented the long wing brogue 2000 years ago.

    yeah, they were the rough rinse which i think lvc discontinued so they probably wanted to get rid of stock.iy was a few months ago so may not have em anymore. Division St and West St have a couple of good vintage shops. Quite a few b/d ben shermans 15quid. And cow on West St i got some made in England dm oxblood shoes 25quid in very qood Nick.

    Gotta usually go through alot of shirts with tiny collars but you can get some decent ones sometimes, i had a laugh when ''a new shop'' shop in sheffield was charging 90 quid for an old donkey jacket, just a tad overpriced lol.
