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.

    The bad: our bathroom is so water damaged, it's gonna be close to 10k to get it fixed. So there goes our vacation and flip fund for the next year...

    Thanks for all the coin info, I'll have to find a magnifying glass when I get home. It looks like the dimes are stamped with "A", but I'm not certain.

    This just fell out of the wallet too!

    There should be another tag with some codes. I think on older jackets it's on the side seam low on the inside.

    Jackets from that line are being sold at ridiculous prices on Ebay, so make sure yours is legit.

    It's been pretty dry around here, but today I managed to reunite an orphan with its long lost pants, and it's a good one.

    While I was in NYC I picked up a solid navy Turnbull & Asser suit in my size, so I guess English stuff is just coming to me now...hope that continues.

    A few random finds from the last week or two.

    Tommy Hilfiger - can't find anything like this at all on eBay. The 'flags' are stitched from pieces of ripstop nylon. They are part of the shirt, not appliques (except on the back).

    Lotta Jansdotter. A hood that is also a scarf.

    Ralph Lauren Golf: 100% cashmere with silk scarf overlay.

    1960s (?) REI jacket. Has a lot of flaws; need some repairs. Estate find.

    Is Brooks the same as Brooks Brothers? This cabbie hat has issues with the sweatband inside. Nice quality felt.

    In this case, Brooks is not Brooks Brothers.

    I hate how Apple puts the obnoxious "YEAR" on the back of their WWDC jackets. The front pocket logos are great. But guys... keep it subtle. No way would I ever wear a giant "13" around (especially through the Mission, haha). Basically ensures thousands of jackets are donated rather than worn for years as a cool souvenir.
