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.

    Seems a weird thing to fake, imo.

    I know, right. I called Arc'teryx and they couldn't match any of the numbers. They went through the normal things to look for when determining a fake and everything checked out.

    It's pretty cool so if there is a feeling it is fake then I'll just keep it because it is a great quality jacket.

    nwt wimmenz. Talon zips! when d&s first came out i thought it was a lightweight rrl, but a bunch of that stuff is pretty legit and widely appealing

    i don't see a lot of older champion stuff but some of it migrates my way... this is 80s and burly reverse weave with a dash of rayon and i might keep for when i run up the steps of the philly museum of art. where my quakers at?

    real and i think fairly recent. some kind of giant reptile gave it up for the strap and clasp - anybody tell me croc or gator? and if anybody can tell me what the bag itself is, i figure lamb but ?

    Went out late last night. Missed my estate sale that I wanted to get there early for. Still found a couple of things. :)

    I don't usually make many posts here because everyone else seems to get such amazing thrift finds. However, today I snagged a virtually unused Dolcepunta . Possibly 7 fold? Regardless, I think this may be one of the best constructed ties I have in my collection :D.

    possible design sample? i've seen a couple in my neck of the woods but they were like hilarious franken-jackets that you couldn't even really wear.
