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,

    It's almost done! Can't wait to hit the tracks riding shot gun!

    Why would it make you sound like an asshole? Every body loves a dafaq story. Fuck that shit, I would never go to Crenshaw. It was bad enough we ended up in Inglewood accidently in a bright ass yellow car.

    Made in China.

    I used to watch that commercial all the time! I just had Mc D today and it tasted like shit...Fuck.

    The item is 100% cotton. A useful resource: Fabric Dictionary, English/Japanese

    Japanese washing instructions Handwash at 30C (medium), do not use chlorine bleach, use a padded cloth when ironing, can be dry cleaned, do not twist or wring, hang in the shade to dry.

    Awesome resource. Pdf'd and saved to Google Drive in case that site ever goes dark. Thanks!

    Never would have guessed cotton. Thick like wool but soft like cashmere. Was a short-ish pea coat or whatever that design is. Didn't kop.

    I was referencing the first paragraph. The mini collection of Porches part. Yea the second part was just fucking dumb. Through a kid on my baseball team, I started hangin out with some Crips and was actually allowed entrance to their set in an "honorary" manner (I didn't need to get jumped in or anything and it's not blood in blood out for me haha), but I would never roll there without them. We'd hit it up on the weekends and I had a "pass" cuz I was with them. At the time I had a Denali on 24s, it was lowered and murdered out, it was fucking absolutely ridiculous. But it didn't matter cuz I rolled with this set there and we would cop white Tees or Peep fake Jacob watches or spit at girls or whatever. One time though I decided to just roll with a friend of mine, this was not a good idea. That was the last time I went and I realized that I was actually hanging out with Crips and I should probably change my lifestyle decisions in general, immediately.

    Well, I'm back in the homeland. Thanks for all who helped me out when I was out west.

    Still have to post pics of the stuff from the last few days in NorCal, but @MJMcRibb I grabbed one of the same Anoraks. They are US Army Mountain Warfare Anoraks and from what I can tell there was also a cold weather version, but theyre pretty desirable.

    Anyway, I of course had to hit a few spots today now that I'm home.

    it's more like a catch-all of patterns. you'll see variations but they all break up the rigid up-and-down wales of traditional herringbone.
