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.

    What I like to do is get a horsehair brush, lukewarm water, a bowl, and some Dawn (the shit they use to get oil off ducks and shit), and scrub. Especially for the canvas based shoes like these. If the stains are stubborn do what Letric states below.

    Your Adidas are getting treatment this weekend sir

    This is pretty successful as well

    If that's legit, the guys name should be stencilled on the inside. And very hard to see.

    Last MA-1 i sold, the stencil was same color as the fabric. Big letters, on the inner back.

    Was it you i traded the ironhearts for it? I forget.

    Hope you got the real deal, they command a premium. And are just cooler.

    But i have seen so many "Authentic fakes" from JP makers. It's crazy. Ask @eazye how authentic the one i sold him was. . :satisfied:

    Yea that was me, that was an N3-B, completely missed the the name on the inside, I'll take a closer look when I get home. Seems pretty legit tho, collar a cuffs are pretty rough but still great shape.

    I stand corrected, the smaller one is not early, but earlier than the larger one. Both are LATE EDO. The larger one is a SASHIKO Family Textile, if that matters.

    Last night I made a quick stop at the GW close to home, lady was bringing out a cart with the new accessories. Unfortunately a woman, who I can't imagine was a flipper, but I could be wrong, snatched the two Hermes (as well as a few other whimsical BBs) before I could get in there. C'est La Vie. Took home a Sid Mashburn chambray shirt with button down pocket thats a keeper and a few pieces of fodder, so I can't complain too much.

    Haha, it's definitely not a local store. Was a small hole-in-the wall spot though, so the possibilities of where the stuff would will be donated to in the future are endless. :(

    I will try to show the pics to the old dude at work, see what he knows. But the bosses wife collects kimono's and stuff. See if she will take a look.

    Pm me your pics. Can't hurt to try.

    Then you can be sure it's legit, as you know the feel and smell of an item that has seen some shit. :slayer:

    -Dudes name was "Casey" , served in the Vietnam era.
    Now it's the prized posession of a Japanese engineer. He wears it as much as possible. The jacket lives on.


    -side note, do you guys ever pic up an item and think "this has seen some shit". Would be cool to see a movie on the life of a garment, through 50 years and going.

    Found it in a shitty hole in the wall place in Florida. Someone messaged me and told me it was from the Aberdeen Proving Ground in Maryland. Its seen some SHIT.

    Would totes wear that. :cheers:

    How do you feel Spoo? Do the "seen shit" items capture your attention as much as other items?

    I think a handful of us see them as priceless grails.
