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.

    Cheers,

    I think finding that is a little Twilight Zonish!

    You didn't kop a pinup tie? I thought those did REALLY well? Was that a fad that has faded?

    Hey @dadjeans .
    Just so you know, those fall-tone paisley RTBOC do really well on the secondary market. I usually get $50+ for each of them.

    Just some catch and releases today. Sigh the last three trips out and nothing. Do people buy everything Harley or is there a specific item such as jacket it needs to be.

    Cross post from buy/sell thread

    I could really use some help on behalf of my little brother.

    He has some project/presentation for one of his classes somewhere across the country. He needs a suit, and doesn't wear the same size as me or he could just borrow.I'm hoping someone has something they can part with on the cheap or proxy.

    If interested in helping me out, he needs a 46R with a 6-8" drop (his chest measures 45.5"). Ideally id like to find him a double vent, 2-button, gray, blue, or charcoal solid or subtle pattern suit with single pleated trousers, but beggars can't be choosers.

    He doesn't need a high end maker, just something like Hart Schaffner Marx, Southwick, those nice local tailors that don't flip well, etc.

    If you're not interested in letting something go cheap, or its not worth your time to proxy, I do have a nice Samuelson cashmere gray herringbone sport coat (sz 42) I can trade.

    Please let me know if you have something that may work, thanks so much!

    I thrifted twice in Vegas - once only hitting a couple shops with no luck, and another time with a rental car for most of the day and only found 2 or 3 things worth picking up. I did hit the thrifts out by the wealthier neighborhoods as well as others scattered around Vegas proper, and I'd never attempt thrifting there again. Both times were a waste of time, gas, money and energy. I mean, if you have absolutely nothing else that interests you and you want to kill some time, sure - go for it.
    I'd rather:
    • Go take another tour of the Neon Boneyard (I've taken 7 tours now and would go back in a heartbeat).
    • Head out to Hoover Dam and take one of the insider tours where you get to go inside, and drive through Boulder City on the way back.
    • Get crunked on Fremont Street.
    • Take in all the kitchy sights in Vegas - Peppermill / Fireside, Dino's Lounge, etc.


    Farking reindeer? That's nuts. Remember to nomnom yourself for the 2016 cheapies, because, yes, it would be too late for the 2015's...


    Pabst or Schlitz if I'm just gonna kill a few cells...but I'll splurge on a fine beer if I want to be celebratory. There is (was?) a bar in Chicago when I lived there that had a "Beers of the world" club, and you'd get a punch on a card for every new beer you tried and you'd get a t-shirt when you filled the card. I had 4, maybe 5 of the stupid shirts.

    Cracked open the Glenlivet XXV last night and had a few fingers...damn that shit's good, but not for everyday drinkin'.


    Might depend on the tie / image. I had one that was straight-up 1980's era Hustler / Cheri / Oui, very graphic and hairy, and it sold for a ton. Another I had was more 50's topless pin-up but still a nudie and it didn't do so hot.
