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.

    Both of those Anthrax shirts are awesome. The Rollins band and Bon Scott ones, too. Phish shirts might be good if you have dog that's slated to give birth soon.

    All this stuff is headed to to eBay tomorrow but available until then.

    Score on the Sansui!!:slayer: That pattern is commonly referred to as "Beo Gam" or "Duck hunter camo".

    Thanks Nat! It (camo) reeks of basement dank...did some serious digging today.
    The Sansui didn't have a power cord so couldn't test it, but took a flyer on it. Worst case scenario is I part it out and sell 1 knob for more than I paid for the receiver. Best case, of course, is it works. TBD.

    Picked up a really nice Corneliani suit the other day. Taking photos today and I cannot for the life of me tell what color it is (sometimes looks dark grey/almost black and sometimes dark brown). Is there anything on the tag that will guide me to their specific color? Tried googling, to no avail. Any help greatly appreciated!

    Corneliani doesn't color code tags, you cant get anything from that.

    Use "melange" in the title?

    Thanks to dahl5yankees for these awesome t-shirts to help me re-live my high school days. Played my "Persistence of Time" cassette endlessly during my senior year.

    Found these today. The MFSL sleeves will be a welcome upgrade for 50 lucky LPs in my collection.

    After a lot of hemming and hawing, just noticed the lining is clearly brown...so I guess that is a pretty good indicator. :facepalm:

    That's an issue I run across, @Dirt
    I'm color deficient (colorblind with close colors) so I'm always scared to put a color in description. I try to get my wife's input but sometimes she's no help. I usually leave color unmentioned and hope the pictures accurately show, but I know screen calibration can be a huge factor in that.

    Ralphie trying to capitalize on the indian sweater that's so insanely popular. Put this up last week, and found this today. Still looking for the elusive actual indian head sweater, and RL flag sweater.

    Two Jean Shop jeans and one Simon Miller. Poorly described. May be new I dont know. Jean Shop jeans were described as Mr. Porter so hoping there is a sales tag somewhere. Hopefully will get combined shipping discount.

    H&S 9ct gold buttons. Still no solid gold. Harvested from a well made hopsack blazer, really a shame, but the buttons are better on their own.

    HOLY SHIT!!

    WTF??

    :butbut: WAT THE ACTUAL FAK>??

    This is what I love and hate about this thread. Inspiration but at the same time makes me feel like shit about what I thought until 5 minutes ago was a decent haul, and my first in weeks.
