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 person who has a Wu_tang member for his avatar doesn't understand the Hilfiger thing?

    I'm joking; it's something that I don't understand either...I can't tell what's just old tommy and what's desirable. Is it like Polo; the more louder and 90's the better?

    Back from the dead?!

    Imagine the polo stuff that sells. Spell out, bright colors, etc. Apply that same concept to Tommy. Older sailing jackets, windbreakers, etc with big logos or spell out logos are hot right now.

    One of the smaller Colorado labels from the late 70's/1980s. That piece is probably early 80s. Can you see the date code on the back of the GoreTex label?

    Chinook Sports was the newer name of Banana Equipment. The link below shows an ad from a 1981 issue of Backpacker Magazine.

    I guess I have to post some things I found today to repay the world for the valuable Tommy information which has been imparted to my brain

    Here's my take on PC. Fabrics are great. Features are usually very cool. Cut is a little more modern in certain places like waist suppression. But you just can't get away from the fact that it's made by Samuelsohn. Sort of like you can't get away from the fact that the Epaulet jackets are made by Southwick. It's just not going to fit like the Armoury Ring Jacket.
