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,

    Also had some AE Cliftons bought new in 2007, which said made for flying through airport on the box, and always wondered why. Yours look great. I've wondered about shell though, perhaps for the same reasons that I enjoy the oft-posted comic about being attracted to vinyl due to the expense and inconvenience. And now I want to see a gif of a panda kicking over a record collection wearing those loafers. Any chance you own a panda suit?

    Pretty sure that dude is a current or former prl model, not just eBay. I think they fulled those pictures from the prl website.

    How am I looking auth wise here?
    I've seen a decent amount of recent Chanel clothes and Accessories, but nothing vintage really so I'm not real sure on the protocol.

    well if it's vintage chanel the size would hug the right side closer to the center stamp on back. The stamp looks weird as the fonts not bold enough and the second line looks off center. There should be a small plaque on the back of the buckle. The belt keeper looks like tough Chinese leather not soft relaxed leather.
