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.

    I've never bought anything related to any team or college, apart from a leather jacket that was sort of the ritual at my university - we dyed them from mustard yellow to an unhealthy purple. Oh, and I had a rugby style shirt from Barbarian with the school crest on it. Other than those purchases, both made during my Freshman year, nothing. I'd someone gave me a scarf of something for a soccer match in Europe, I might wear it.

    I meant to say other than thetiebar, I like their stuff and have plenty, I just am interested in something more unique. Tried etsy, didn't see much I like - those joinery ones are beautiful but too big for my average BoO ties.

    My uncle is a carpet installer, and does a lot of his work through Lowe's, but they're really weird about what happens with any of the extra or returned carpet. Obviously, contractors are encouraged to offer the unused portions to the buyer, which they often accept. But I've worked with him on some jobs where the carpet was either not what the person ordered, or the person did a lousy job envisioning what the carpet sample would look like as an actual carpet and they find some nonexistent flaw with it. At that point, Lowe's will actually take back the carpet, replace it with something the customer does want, and makes the installer return the carpet to them. They don't reuse it, though, and it's my understanding that even though they are insistent that the installer return the carpet, it's eventually just discarded.

    TL;DR Lowe's is like the H&M of home improvement.

    Beware the man who turns class into an adjective.

    yeah that Mr Porter guy looks like he is wearing his little sister's jacket, not good at all.

    the jacket looks nice in pics when it is not being worn :foo:

    Just saw Les Mis for the third time, makes it seem so tempting to throw out everything and invest in some ridiculous PH/Ann D combo

    Looking for a knit sweater with a B&W pattern that I like... something like this but more interesting than stripes:

    I really like this CDG shirt but I prefer a sweater, and it's sold out as far as I can see anyways.
