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,

    One estate sale. $20/item. These are most certainly the polo scarves you're looking for. Those ski bears tho….
    I need a little help with the military stuff though. My limited Google makes me think 30s?

    I've never seen a polo ostrich before either. Chrome hearts are the "little red riot". :slayer:

    Just the other day I was thinking we needed to replace our couch. Found a custom order $7,500 pottery barn set with performance tweed fabric. Manufacturing date of 4/28/16. A designer bought it and the client didn't like it, so they gave it away. Picked it up for 75% off retail :slayer:

    I'll start with the easier of the two jackets to identify. Those ribbons usually give a good rough estimate to begin with, and in this case the yellow ribbon (partially cut off in this pic) is the Asia Pacific Medal ribbon, given to those who served in the Pacific Theatre during 1941-1945. The red ribbon is for the Bronze Star. This award was awarded to any service member, starting on Dec. 7, 1941 (Pearl Harbor), who display heroism or merit in service. So it is very possible this jacket is from the late 1930's, and 1945 at the latest.

    Too late. Nothing wrong with them though, they just need some trees and a cleaning. Picked up for personal use but I'd be surprised if I didn't get 10 x what I spent if I decide to flip them.
