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.

    Cheers,

    Get ready for this one... Note, that this was in high school, and it was a semi-gift. The salesman should be shot for this one...

    Here is my biggest mistake. Custom Gucci loafers in Boa. The wasted money could have gotten me a fine pair of C&J:

    What size are those guccis? Would be interested if they are my size just because they are so flashy.

    Wow, I like those Gucci loafers myself too, although I think they go against the taste of the forum.

    Those loafers look like they belong on a 1970s street pimp, but for some godforsaken reason, I kinda like them.

    Mannix... do they look anything like these? [​IMG]

    These Kenneth Coles are honestly amazingly comfortable, but in retrospect they are pretty hideous. You can tell I wore the crap out of them...


    Here are mine...don't know why I still have them. I suppose for times just like this. Mine were also quite comfortable, the only thing they had going for them.

    Pimp-tastic... I sort of like them too, but only under the right circumstances.

    spent about $1500 on Prada and Bruno Magli shoes about a month before i joined the forum. argh.

    Emanuel Ungaro, Jones NY suits from S&K. 4 Joseph Bank suits, some at $500 a piece, at least those were "signature gold." Ebayed them for about $100 a piece a while ago. Bachrach shirts and ties. Florsheim, Nunn Bush, and Johnston and Murphy shoes. Weird polyester blend Riley collar shirts that I used to think were cool, including one that was lime green.
