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.

    I took a 6 hour trip (my first) into London a couple days ago on a layover and hit up Trickers. Got a pair of Stow boots on serious discount. Definitely check them out. T&A, Dunhill, Edward Green, all the Savile Row spots, etc. are all within about a 15 minute walk of one another and the Piccadilly Circus stop. So cool!

    Not thriftrelated but thought some of you would enjoy, my mother gave me this knife today, a family heirloom so to speak. Handmade sami knife from the northern parts of Sweden where my family comes from. Old, in superb condition and extremely well made, Im very happy.

    I borderline thrifted a mint AC30 a few years ago. I wanted the C1 model but a CC2 popped up on Craigslist a few years ago with a flight case for $500 total the day I got my tax return. Felt like free money on something that was over half off what the dude could've charged.

    Happy holidays, guys!
    BRB, soaking my denimz.

    Here's what i do. Hot soak my denims that need shrinkage. Use the same water to cold soak denim that needs a cleaning when the water has cooled. That way, i save water! So thrifty!

    I think I would go the opposite route. I'm willing to bet vicuña feels really nice on the ol' frank and beans. [​IMG]

    Merry Christmas errbody!

    My wife is working late this Christmas Eve so I took the day to thrift. I was hoping the crowds would be thin, which for the most part they were, but the goods were thin as well. Then at the last spot I found some vintage polo goodness.

    Only one is tagged, but I'm assuming this is one donor size 42
