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.

    A few recent finds...

    Aforementioned Sartorio. It's an EU 56, 100% linen and has a litany of issues. I don't mind making it available at my proposed ebay price, but I can almost guarantee you'll be disappointed by its condition.

    The best Ocean's Eleven suit (pants not pictured) you could find. Really, this is the type of suit you could wear to Monaco or Vegas. 51/49 Silk/Super 180s. Jacket is an EU 54, pants an EU 52.

    Does anyone else feel like there should be a boxing ring set up for these little feuds? Just send a PM dickpic to each other and be done with it already.

    I had a drunk homeless woman come up to me and ask my why I was buying so much stuff, asked if it was because I was making a trip to Texas. Why would someone in the prairies of Canada would need a cart full of sweater and winter coats for Texas, was beyond me. It was quite a confusing experience; the thrift was in a auto row / retail area not anywhere close to where homeless people congregate and a bit of a bus trip from anywhere.

    I found a nice coat when I was there; from a company called G-Lab. Quite pricy at the local high end store. The construction was quite bullitproof, I thought it might be for motorcycle wear. Heavy nylon with removable liner. Still available at the store.

    Lol, I usually just tell people I'm getting stuff for friends. If they ask more I usually tell them my friends and I buy stuff in our sizes and trade which is true.

    LOL, I get that s--t all the time. I don't understand people who are willing to wait on the good stuff in the hopes that it will still be there tomorrow, and are willing to wait in massive lines to save a few bucks.

    Brodeeeeeetzzzzz? Looks like late 70s/early 80s. Can you send pictures of all of the tags and a couple overall pics? I'd love to add this to my virtual collection and maybe tell you more about it.

    @fueco has converted me. I can identify lots of the Patagonia now lol and my mom loved the last one I picked up and asked for more. It's like minus a million today in Toronto and she called me to tell me how warm she is.

    Cheers and thank you
