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,

    Good place to put that, Spoo! I say, keep on bidding. I actually just clicked over there. There is a Versace shirt that both enthralls and really scares me...

    Also, moar! Put it this way, these pants pretty much never go on sale! Kent's shoes went for $360. Anyone will to match and top that for up to $470 worth of pant?

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    Really generous tonight, gentlemen. 10 minutes left, and we have a mystery bid of $395, and another of a whopping $450!

    So, the mark to beat right now is $450

    10 minutes, gentlemen.

    And, the happy winner is *********, with a winning bid of $450. I'll let you guys try to figure that one out.

    This is the fourth year we've raised money for the RMHC. We came out a little over $5K the first year, and Styleforum tipped it over $6K in 2010. Last year, because we were not able to do a raffle, and we had no control over a "team" page, we went down to about $3700. This year, I'd really like to top our record of $6K, and ideally, we'd gun for the $10K mark.

    Tomorrow, we will be auctioning off the winner's choice of any Drakes tie and pocket square, courtesy of Exquisite Trimmings. Stay tuned, gentlemen.
