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,

    Hmm, yeah I figured it was a little long to be carrying on a hunt.

    Correction, I believe it's probably a straight Post Horn, used to signal the arrival of a mail coach, or a Fanfare Trumpet

    I'm still betting against it. The date code doesn't convince me. It just doesn't have the size the stamp should be a bit bigger it looks small and off center. The chanel logo should be perfectly centered between the a and the n. Things come from china with fake serial numbers/date codes all day. Put it on a chanel authentication forum they will know in 5 seconds.

    Sweet n sour experience today, i walk up to the till with an old westwood jumper, the manager says 'oh , we've got tons of brand new westwood in bags in the back room but we can't bring it out into the shop because it will get stolen', so she goes out back, gets 3 binliners full of new westwood dresses, skirts, shirts, everything aw15, like the whole collection that has probably been used for a photo shoot or sample show, then she starts quoting way too high prices for me to make a margin and i also have nearly all my money in stock atm. Anyway, i now have access to the back room where they keep stuff for the buyers that they know and when i get some cash in i might make an offer on the 3 bags lot but, came home with just an old sweater, a barbour shirt, Armor Lux scarf and a pair of Asics GL3,

    I'm planning on touring, and I don't really need 180 gram saddles. Depending on the size id be interested in another exchange, however. Let me know if you come across any modern waterproof Arkels.

    Translation: while he appreciates the offer of a lightweight Blake-stitch shoe, his uses will be extended and rigorous, so he'd prefer something with a Norwegian welt. He would, however, be interested in something like LP StormSystem for his gear.
