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.

    £10 is possibly a bit steep if you are going to flip it. Those polos are the one piece of logo'd/garish clothing that I buy (to be worn with shorts on the 2 days of summer we get) and the last one I bought was £15 on eBay. In a medium, granted, but it wouldn't be a guaranteed moneymaker - the size may help it, if it is in decent condition you'd probably double your money on a BIN, but you might have to sit on it for a while. Pretty much any decent Polo sells well though.

    Today is my birthday, I don't say that to garner "congrats", but to say that I am really thankful for this community. I have spent my morning listening to vinyl, drinking coffee, and taking photos of the stuff I've thrifted over the past few weeks. I truly enjoy this hobby and it doesn't hurt that it is funding a good chunk of those extra costs coming up for our wedding in May. Anyway - Cheers to all of you!

    re: dildo smegma

    there was a whole to-do on how to pronounce certain euro brands and i think the thread just decided this was easier than trying to type it with the proper inflection. fwiw in my head it sounds like DEEL-do

    Looking for ties on eBay is such a chore. Damn. Talk about an over saturated market.

    Total heartbreaker today. Spent about 2 hours trying to reunite 8 vintage off savile row suits. I found the pants to 5 of them but as I was going over them with a fine tooth comb, noticed they all had significant dry cleaner sheen. :( I bought one for my archives nontheless. As I was leaving I saw another dude with all the same suits piled in his cart and had to let him know they were all pretty much worthless. I thought it might be someone on the thread. If so, hi!

    Spent the last three weeks traveling for work, just met up with my wife in Paris for some R&R. Hit a thrift, first thing I touch is this (needs a press and crap photos but). Found nothing even remotely buyable beyond this but that's ok :
