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.

    Hey guys I appreciate all the feedback with the dieting and working out. I really have gotten some great PMs and taken a lot of what you guys have said. Sorry if it caused a derailing..

    I just listed the Free Briefcase that I mentioned yesterday. I will be paying for the shipping to your location. Preferably in the US :satisfied: It is over in the free give away thread below.

    Good luck to everyone and please respect the rules and only make one guess per day! I hope others will give away and get that thread going :spam:

    Imp, the real ones feel pretty fake too. Many of the lightweight shoes seem cheaply made upon inspection. I've got a pair of Y-3 Qasa Racer lows that I'd think were knockoffs if I hadn't bought straight from adidas/y-3.

    Today I picked up some AE Byron, AE Bimini horsebit woven(made in Italy), and Gucci horsebit loafers. All used but not horrible condition. Also a nice Brooks made in USA cafe racer style leather jacket.

    I literally just deleted a whole thing about how everyone is fucking high and those boots are AE Daltos and retail for 450, but apparently you guys are still on abut the Yeezys...glad I caught that,that post would have been nothing short of immensly embarassig....so in that case, congratz on the boots, most over priced boots relative to quality on the market and every AE head in the country could give a fuck less and those will flip top dollar without question.

    Oh and I guess while I'm at it, don't take anybody's word, simply write down the reference number from Kimyes size tag and search it. If the search comes back matching make and model you have some expensive kicks too. The true and the ONLY fool proof, fake/real test when it comes to trainers and athletic shoes and such, don't listen to anybodies opinion, just simply search the reference and you got everything you need. Good luck.

    Oh and lastly I felt it was necessary to add, Ye is a genius without question, however probably 5 or so months ago the man also tweeted this statement verbatim..."I JUST SAW ZOOLANDER 2 FOR THE 2ND TIME!"

    I love the guy's work but i literally walked out of that movie 15 minutes in and I downloaded it illegally [​IMG]...trash can get filled quick though ....this single statement will forever leave me so fucking confused. Ur all welcome.

    Sorry nm.....I oce left a single Zegna Couture XXX hand numbered dress shoe behind that was dead mint. I turned that situation into a joke. It got dark quick so ima go ahead and retract that....and in no way whatsoever was the joke at the expensive of any individual who has lost any limb or part of their body...with that said, it shall remain untold.

    Valentino shirt
    Probably my favourite shirt i've ever found. Really nice navy camo pattern on a thick cotton poplin.
    I'm thinking the "2014 Milano" on the tag means it was a runway item from 2014, which is cool.
    edit: not sure what's going on with the colours, no fading is visible in person.

    Being unable to know all of your sizes. A good pair of examples are @ barrelntrigger and me.
    He powerlifts. And could squat lift the front end of a Camaro. Dude is solid. But not ripped. By choice.
    He just prefers to be strong.

    I worked on farms for 2 years, and road construction. Doing hard manual labor.10 hours a day. Both cardio, and heavy lifting. I legit looked like Wolverine. And was a powerhouse.


    But Barrel was easily 40% stronger when we met. We never did arm wrestle. But i have arm wrestled enough people to know. He lost a lot of weight powerlifting. And that might work for you. I recommend sending him a pm for deeetz. He will be glad to help.

    Those Zegna shoes were a steal @ 6$. Damn, should have checked the thread before bed.
    Nothing but pleats last night. These LB looked minty but couldn't get over the hard double pleats. Probably should have grabbed them but meh. The Zegna were a nice grey but the person who let the waist out did a shit job. I could have fixed them but didn't care enough because the pleats I also noticed I mainly post things I passed on lol but that's because I enjoy the thread and want to contribute even when I don't find anything for myself.
