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,

    That feeling when you reunite a super 170s Brioni orphan only to find the pants have a slight drip on them :/

    Oh well. Catch and release.

    Pants had a small rip? Still more than flippable. I would have picked it up for sure

    Had a small rip to go along with the "drip" the more I inspected the more I didn't like but if anyone wants to deal with it I can proxy. They were asking $40.

    Yeah I've flipped orphans four major profit. Plus a re weave place might fix the pants and make it worth the hassle.

    Mart Stam 1970s made in Italy repro, $15. Bought this in LA and the leather got torn on the flight home. Might reupholster with Pendleton fabric...or just pitch it.

    Can anyone recognize this maker? Italian brand that manufactures in Tunisia, looks like? Really nice moleskins in my size. Just curious.

    My bad, still learning what that is, for it to be salvage does it have to have red stitching?
