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.

    Well, I know it's not marked as such, but the list says it's a bonus point if it's actually marked-Delft Delftware. So how to identify the non-marked stuff?

    Bonus for specifically marked "delfts blauw"

    There are many other delft markings. Are there any marks at all? If it mentions any place other than holland. No.

    Whatever it is, it's a beautiful set.

    +1, Check out eBay listings for Delft. There are many ways they mark them "Delft Handpainted" "Delft Blue Handpainted" "Delfts Blauw" etc...

    I'm not sure if that vintage police motorcycle jacket count's as a Shott type or not. Also, I counted 76 London Fog Coats at this particular. I seriously considered rounding them up and taking a pic of all of them, but I thought I would probably get thrown out of the store.

    This is indeed loud, but it is not plaid. Does this count, capn? If so, I skipped over some smoking-esque jackets that I need to go back and take pics of.

    Shit! I had a plaid one too but I deleted the photo. :fu: I should have read the list more carefully.

    Hey, at least you posted early and found out now! Plenty of time to go find another. And you never know, capn might accept it.

    For a boot to be called Chelsea, IMHO, you need to have no zippers, a gap in the leather on the side which is covered with elastic stuff. Just saying. Is this ending today?

    I did not know that, so I guess this would be just a regular beetle boot then?

    Don't forget to forward the PM I sent out about the donation change. I expected to pick up a few more contestants by now. Thanks
