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.

    Nice find! The Geneve Chronometer is relatively rare too, and they're starting to really appreciate in value. If you didn't know, you can date those pretty well on the Omega website.

    $2000 seems a bit steep to me.

    Recent finds.

    Spoo's theory about always finding T&A in pairs has held true for me so far (third time now). 17/43.

    Vintage neiman marcus all silk vest. Looks like women's from the button placement but seems like it would work for men, too, unless there is something fundamental I'm missing.

    I suspect these LV x Kanye sneakers are fake as they come

    The dude at the boutique was pushing hard to sell em, along with all sorts of other Adidas and Lanvin stuff that seemed a little off. Didn't bite.

    great haul!

    that j press is super. i've only ever seen a couple of j press where i am. sadly not the fun crazy trad statement fu stuff, just beat up navy blazers...

    i cannot get over that neiman marcus. hands-down the ugliest, craziest thing i've seen on this thread - i wish there was a prize, i'd nominate! what possessed you to pick that up?

    Not an Omega, but picked this up recently at an estate sale. Pretty sure they thought it was busted. Gave it a little shake, watched it start right up and said "I'll take it". Should be nice with a cleaning and new strap.

    Surface to Air makes sick stuff, at least they used to, haven't kept up to date with the brand recently. Definitely primo SWD stuff. Based outta France, and their leathers are fucking nice.

    Edit: Quick search outta curiosity netted me results of a brand that has seemingly sold out. Looks like production is way up, prices are way down, and I can only assume as is quality.

    That's what I was going to say, def not real fur. Stitching details means it wouldn't be shearling. Take a lighter into the changing room with you next time to check [​IMG]
