1. Hi. We moved systems, and because it was impossible to achieve feature parity between the systems, we opted to archive the old B&S threads but allow users to read them so that they can put them into our new B&S system.

    There is a support thread if you have any issues.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    reyn spooner's trademark inside-out fabric, emulating a sunwashed fade.
    Words by Jian DeLeon Photos by Jay Wen

    Reyn's began as a Hawaiian-inspired shirtmaker on California's Catalina Island. When it made its formal move to Oahu's Ala Moana shopping center as one of the burgeoning mall's flagship stores, it somehow acquired the moniker of the "Brooks Brothers of the Pacific." This may be due to founder Reyn McCullough's establishment of "Aloha Fridays" on the islands in 1966, when businessmen would be allowed to wear the floral-printed shirts to work. This practice eventually became commonplace on the islands. The label's real claim to fame came when McCullough, inspired by bleached-out, sunfaded fabrics of beach bums, began making his shirts with the fabric inside-out, creating the desired worn-in look. One of his most iconic designs is the Ivy-inspired pop-over shirt with a button-down collar, especially in the brand's "La Haina" print. The Reyn Spooner brand aims to channel that heritage and attention to quality and combine it with modern fits. With many designers like Engineered Garments infusing a little bit of island culture into their Spring/Summer collections for 2011, it wouldn't seem out of place to see this brand's popularity rise. Under the helm of CFDA-winner Gordon Thompson and designer Alice Chen-Galloway, the two have taken the brand into the future by doing things like collaborating with streetwear brands like Stussy and opening a flagship store in the youthful Waikiki.

    Love the corduroy woodblock-patterned shirt.

    Any notes on retailers carrying Reyn Spooner? Or would it just be best to hit their webshop?

    Reyn Spooner shirts were part of the uniform worn by every dad in my hometown when I was a kid, along with shorts/khaki's and flip flops/white tennis shoes (summer/winter).

    Reyn Spooner's are very popular in Arizona. I have a popover buttondown with the hawaiian flag and some other designs. I also have an Arizona Diamondbacks shirt made by them.

    They make shirts for Arizona and Arizona State University and they even make one for Brophy Preparatory Academy which is the all-male Catholic high school in Phoenix. If they made one for my Catholic high school in Tucson, I would purchase a shirt.

    Fred Segal in santa monica carries it but their web-shop is non-existent. I tried on a couple of the shirts this weekend and they fit really nice, similar to the Our Legacy fits they are displayed next to. Sirts are all about 100 bones.

    micro-corduroy shirting looks quite unusual. cell phone spyware Like it. But the quality does not inspire confidence.

    Front Page Sports Football (or FPS Football), first released in 1992, was the first in a series of American football simulations released by Sierra Online. In 1996, Computer Gaming World magazine named it the 11th best computer game of all-time. The Front Page Sports series was notable for being one of the first football simulations to include a career mode where players aged and retired, and for the number of statistics it offered. The first game did not have a license from the NFL or its players association, meaning that all teams and players offered were fictional, but subsequent versions starting with Front Page Sports Football Pro '95 in 1995 included real NFL players and teams. New versions of the game were introduced each year, with the final one coming out in 1999, however the 1999 version was recalled. A 2000 version was also planned, however it was cancelled shortly after the 1999 version recall.

    In October 2009 Cyanide, the French studio behind such games as the sport management sim Pro Cycling Manager and the adaptation of Blood Bowl, announced a closed beta of a new online version of Front Page Sports Football
