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.

Please keep this thread bookmarked so that you don't miss out on something cool!

    Lets get this goal toppled, gents.

    Dont let these kids down - and as a reminder, I am donating 10% of the hammer price of my auctions ending on 12/16, next Sunday, to the RMHC, so if you see anything you like, 10% of it goes to help a small kid be happier at the holidays.

    Our first auction for the Annual Holiday Drive, this year for the Ronald McDonald House Charities (www.rmhc.org) will be for your choice of Benchgrade Kent Wang Shoes, with retail value between $350 and $375, courtesy of Kent Wang.

    Kent Wang was the original king of the three inch tie on Styleforum, and his direct to customer model allows him to bring you goods at a fraction of the price of comparable goods from other makers. He started his business on Styleforum selling handrolled pocket squares, not ties, in 2007, and it’s grown from there. You can read all about Kent Wang and his products here: http://www.styleforum.net/t/151480/kent-wang-affiliate-thread/1550_50

    Our bidding starts at $150. Someone come up with $150. Please post your bids here, in increments of $10 or more, or PM me to place an anonymous bid for you. Bidding will end at 11:59 p.m. tonight, at which point I will contact the winner re. payment and shipping.

    Let’s get this moving, gentlemen. Get a great pair of shoes and help some kids. It’s a no lose situation.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    You can see more photos of the shoes on my website. Note that this auction covers only the benchgrade shoes.

    Ed: Thanks for the opening bid. You're old school.

    I'll go $175.

    I remember working for Ronald McDonald House a bit when I was younger. They're good people who do good work.

    Proud of you guys. Can you beat retail. Ballers won't pay anything less than 125% of retail. I read it once.
