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.

    ^^ you really are kind of young, I was wondering why all your pics were taken at your parents house :) Curious, what uppsala suburb are you in? I grew up Nåntuna/Sävja.

    looks good, but the shirt/tie appears a bit too sharp together with linen

    Yeah will buy a nicer tie, that was just one of my fathers old ones I used so the shirt-collar would lay flat.
    Will probably keep the shirt though, fits and feels surprisingly nice for 50$ and is just enough to make the whole ensemble formal enough for gradution [​IMG]

    Did they have a navy job? Black linen strikes me as a weird combo, but what do I know. Wear with stacks and painted hmmmm boots, obviously. Fuck your formality, Man! We don't need no education!

    There's a blue version, though that fabric is less "solid" and so is a bit more casual than I'd prefer. There's also a offwhite/beige option, but that was kind of out of the question hah.
    And yeah black linen is definitely a kinda unusual combo, but should get plenty of use of both jacket and pants after graduation (especially the pants, will work well for summer)

    Really though, if anyone is looking for a nice cheap summer suit I'd definitely recommend them to try this one out

    zara sweatpants are actually really nice although i think i should have sized up to a Large for a slouchier fit

    T shirt in XL was a good call tho!

    I think ill reorder the sweats in large and see which i prefer

    $50 for an hm shirt seems expensive to me.

    Geobaskets and Rick MA1s are the only things that sell for a decent price on ebay it seems. Even Rick leathers go begging but the MA1s sell for top dollar, especially if near-new condition.

    I am getting raped on my ebay sales these days. The only thing that fetched any real dollars was a pair of Lobbs that were too small for me, but I cant get the buyer to pay now. It is trapped in that ebay "Global Shipping Program" hell.

    Some FBT models sell for retail plus, all you got do is put kanye in the description lol. I hate when I search to buy some visvim stuff, and 70% of what comes up is nike, supreme, obey.

    I didn't ship yet. Short story is that buyer does not want to pay the astronomical "global shipping program" fees and markup (usually like 1/3 of the auction price). Ebay is not being helpful. This program has killed three of my sales now.

    Why are you using the global shipping program in the first place?

    I am 99% sure that their global shipping program caused me a "neutral" review from a buyer. I PM him asking why but he never responded so I assume it's due to the shipping.

    Oh well
