    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.

    Just picked up this Polo Ralph Lauren canvas/leather weekender type bag at the thrift. Smells strongly of leather. Awesome.

    Is this something I need to worry about being fake? Haven't ventured much into "designer" clothes.

    Related: what's this kind of bag called? With the wooden dowels the length of the bag where it closes. Common style.

    I'm sure I've left some T shirt gold out there, but the time spent flipping through bar mitzvah t shirts and the reward lowers my hourly rate so Ive got to let those go.

    Trying to list a pair of Louis Vuitton Monte Carlo loafers, size has ruined off from wear, how do I figure out size on these? I put a tape measure inside the shoe and it 11 inches from heel to toe. How does that translate into size?

    Sorry wrong thread

    Down here it is family reunions, church picnics, and BLM rallies (all of which are often combined into single events).

    Should we be concerned that we haven't heard from @silverwarebandit yet?

    A little help fellas? Size is right. Weight seems good. Edges rolled to the vibrant side. One thing that gives me pause are the missing content/origin tag, but there looks to be remnants of thread where it would have been. The other is that there are places where the color doesn't go all the way to the edge of the outline, as shown on the last pic.
