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,

    I've seen a lot of items that have exposed seams covered in a thin strip of white cotton cloth secured with red thread :/

    Pretty sparse this week, thus far. Sometimes you gotta know when to hold 'em...

    I'm guessing wiminz, by the shape of the sleeve? Tagged Large but it's small, even for a vintage large.

    NWT Ted Baker, size 5 (basically XL) Available for cheeps (edit: not stained at all, weird pic I guess)

    @Nataku or anyone who feels like chiming in..here's my M65. Tags are coming a bit loose but they are there. Worth the effort?

    Evisu (cheap ones or fakes - not sure which) has that. Before I knew what selvedge was and looked like, I fell for it.

    I know. I has a proud.
    Pretty much a direct quote. I should have known better, which is why my blank and stupid stare in response was so embarrassing.

    WTF? Really? Why not?

    Not quite the loafs Spoo had on the other day, but those are pretty sexy.

    So, help out a denim novice. Why do they call them "Capital E" and only have a little e on the red tab?

    I'm not 100% on this, but I think capital E was a Levis premium brand that started before LVC (or maybe just overlapped.)

    As I recall, the story was they pulled some shady shit - something about ripping off code and/or redirecting people to grailed or something like that. Probably buried in the old thread.

    IIRC back when grailed was in beta the dude who started it (Arun is his name I believe) was EXTREMELY SPAMMY trying to get new people to join. I had several messages from him on reddit that were all the same copied and pasted post. Like, would go through every single classified on SF and the /r/malefashionmarket post on reddit and message anyone who posted decent looking pictures to try to get them to post their items on grailed. There's a whole post about it somewhere but essentially the SF mods were sick of it and just banned it entirely and never went back on it.

    Yeah I thought I read that Fok had unscrewed the grilled links but guess not. For those wondering it was a link to a polo Indian head sweater someone was asking $700 for.

    As to the Arun dude from grilled I mean just look at this guy

    Exactly. Total douche. Plus he wrote this blog post about raw denim that makes me want to die.

    it's true that LVC released a 1978 little e 501, but this isn't that repro.

    it is a premium selvedge version of the 501 that levi's did in the 90s
    yeah!
