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,

    Great first post. That LB is lovely, as others have said (I've not had the pleasure of finding any as yet in the UK, sadly). You're very welcome here.

    Well, considering the size I'd like to call it "mine".

    Otherwise, I have no information.

    Just a linen sportcoat. It's burgandy label so it's in the time frame of when Burt Avedon was at the helm. That's the time when ralph lauren wanted the company but was turned down. Would have been cool to see what he would have done with the company. Would rrl exist? Maybe maybe not.

    I think I'm retiring from thrifting for a couple years so I can focus more on my day job.

    That said, here are some recent finds, plus a few backlog items from the 16 boxes I sent to @Snoogz recently (I still have a full storage unit when you're ready for more). All true thrift.
