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 passed up some Churches today because they were just beat to hell. The whole vamp was creased and wrinkled. I don't find Churches very often.

    A few pick ups from yesterday, with some nice pops. All available.

    Shirts... First time I've found a Budd shirt, very happy with that

    Coupla ties, including a dangerously funky T&A

    Another pop, this thing is crazy - I can't find this piece online but from the tag I'm guessing it's from 2012

    It also is validation that we can DO something IRL with all this useless knowledge we obssess over and acquire while filtering through the 99% dreck when ripping racks.

    Saw my first pair of Tod's yesterday. (Well at least since I knew to look for them) I passed on them as they were blocky as hell and small. doh, I realize I didn't get a picture of the actual shoe. What is the general consensus on Tod's. I imagine they have different quality levels like most brands.

    Also saw my first pair of Alden's in a long time which were beat to hell and back again. You could barely make out the writing. Didn't bother with a picture.

    Looks like an R3. Find the style number on the tag and Google it.

    I like this guy. He is enhancing my vocabulary. Now, I can add "sodding" in with "swish". These UK colloquialisms are fun!

    Heel dressing would do wonders for those bad boys. I keep a bottle of brown and black on hand. It lasts forever and makes a huge improvement.
