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.

    Let's just say I purchased them and I didn't care to make sure the cameras even turned on. There were no batteries. Went to best buy bought a battery and they both work perfect. Somewhere around 40k shots on the Mark II. I need a card for the Mark III to check count.

    Best find of the year in my opinion... I have that 24-105 lens and would love that setup. Thanks for the mind blowing experience as I sit here in the SeaTac Airport...

    Sure, they need to be spruced up a bit... But, $1.99 Alden 967 wingtips... Sure, why not?

    Haha, I don't remember making a thread but can easily see it. I recall starting a lot of threads asking for information on random obscure brands that I didn't know anything about when I first started on here. :lol: I remember finding it, though. I think I "e-thrifted" it from ParisVegas for $4.99 back when he was still selling all sorts of random men's clothing for dirt cheap. I was impressed with the quality but the thing made BB Classic fit shirts look like a slim Cucinelli. They were really wide. Funny, I saw one in a thrift just a few days ago and as just as boxy as I remembered.
    Yeah, it's been bad the past month or so. Everyone else I talk to says the same thing.
    Unfortunately not. I saw a bunch of those at an Army Surplus shop a couple months ago for like $14.

    So, is Bills Khakis completely shutting down or is it just a change of ownership?

    Haha, that's what this place is for anyway @nataku
    It is hilariously large. It's a medium and pit to pit is like 27.

    Apparently they are inspired by 1950s bowling shirts, but with awesome fabrics and patterns. Weird shit.
