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,

    After some research, they're fake. What sucks most is they were marked up like 10x what GW usually charges for shoes. Expensive lesson.

    Damn, that's a bummer! The only scenario I could ever fathom those ending up at the GW is a pissed off girlfriend/wife. Made me think of this deleted scene from High Fidelity...

    I've sent aldens to B nelson and he does great work. For basic "oak" soles he will charge in the low 100's. For premium JR redenbach soles $150-200. This price includes shipping both ways.

    I meant to ask this last night but forgot. Picked this up a week or so ago and have been looking at the stamping more closely and it has little indents around the style number that make it look like it was hand stamped. Also, the Coach stamp is slightly askew. Belt feels nice though...anyone recognize this as fake? Just curious..it was like $2. I figured I could roll the dice.

    Looks fine. Probably not a faked item either to be honest, but who knows.

    Yeah, I didn't think anyone would go through the trouble to fake a simple Coach belt but I've seen cheaper stuff faked. Thanks for the input!

    Pretty much agree, especially Filippa K for men. I like their stuff if I can get it for cheap, although they are mostly too slim-fitting. I usually sell thrifted Filippa K for women quite fast and get good returns (here in Scandinavia) - it´s all I see when flipping through my girlfriends fashion magazines, with somewhat ridiculous retail prices. The khakis are Aspesi, perhaps better known for their parka jackets. Pretty solid stuff, mostly buy it for myself. I don´t think it´s particulary valuable solely for flipping purposes, however. Never really see the brand discussed here.
