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.

    I think he means the one at Bicester, which has been known to have Purple Label and RRL at big discounts but it's really hit or miss and a couple of hours drive away. I got a Prada SC at 10% rule last time I was there though, and some Gucci shoes. We've got one of the normal outlets too, quite locally, but it's all Polo and not worth flipping.

    pretty wild stuff. Imagine hank williams on a 3 week meth and whisky bender.

    sheldon is actually hank Jrs son... .(which is why he goes by hank 3) When he's playing alone with a guitar... he looks and sounds so much like his grandfather is SCARY.

    *edit* when i say friend... i mean he was seeing my best friends girlfriends roommate..... so we spent some time together but its not like he was getting invited to my wedding

    Did a trade with @SpooPoker. Here's what he sent:

    WW Chan. Fits like a 42. Beautiful jacket. I wish it fit me but alas it is available.

    So I heard someone pronounce the beginning of the word ISAIA like you would pronounce "is" - as in "the sky is blue." It was like is-ē-uh.

    I've always pronounced it like i-zay-uh.

    Which is correct?

    I have received the box from Brian Shin's friend and its in processing right now. I think its best if I start a new thread to manage all the questions that I have / coordination to make this work - which Ill do as soon as Im able to map out a plan. Just a heads up.

    But holy crap theres good stuff in there. Should we set a goal for this?

    picket up a zegna SC in my favorite fabric combo (silk/cashmere) today. Kind of sloppy I just ran in from the rain. Cant really tell if its a 3 roll 2 but whatever, it falls like it.
