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,

    I have always fucking hated Robert Guillaume. His greatest role was playing Benson on that old sit com. Well, since I had the same last name, I had to endure years of people telling me, "You don't look like him." [​IMG]

    Couple of weeks ago I found a Cucinelli puffer vest at an outlet, final sale at 87% off retail. I looked the thing over very carefully, figuring that it must be damaged, and somehow didn't see that it was missing 2 buttons (the kind that snap). I emailed Cucinelli and they are shipping another set directly from Italy at no cost to me - talk about taking care of customers :slayer:

    The way my thrifting goes... Buy a hoodie online, then find another one in a thrift shop for a fraction of the price. Pop for me on a Snap-T Hoody...

    Ok thanks for the tips. None were full suits just jackets, and the size was pretty large I think 48-50L so I passed not knowing if I could sell the items or not. For future reference since the sizes are pretty large would it be worth it to get them anyway??

    I did however find a nice canalli tie that made it home with me...

    Thanks for the info! Seems like the red insole is specific to the G-Two's so made in India I guess.

    Thriftmas box is SENT!

    (Couple days late for international, sorry bro.)






    How do you like the AG? I've been wanting to pick one of those up. How is the fit? Slim or roomy?


    If you don't need yours now, just send it my way... :)

    It's pretty awesome. The fit is the perfect slim for me. If you run warm, get the zip zersion.

    I don't have gloves but the ones I've tried on seems to have shorter fingers.

    Black numbers on the union labels started in the late '60s, this jacket looks very 70's to me.

    Purple Man sporting a blue Wings and Horns camo overdye shirt on Jessica Jones episode ten, what's up.

    Who else gets that ersatz tingly feeling of legitimacy whenever their clothing pops up on TV because life is devoid of meaning and we never learned how to love?
