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.

    Finally starting to warm up. Goodwill 50% off day. 1st stop:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]
    About $6 PP. Cuci is pure unstructured linen, 3/2 roll 1/4 lined and fits like it was tailored for me [​IMG]


    2nd stop. $5 PP and that's with dishing out $20.00 for the Burberry blazer as it was for the big boys with the gold knight buttons. Diminishing returns as the day went on.

    Had a good run this morning with @dahl5yankees.

    Pretty sure this came from the same guy as the Yohji haul stuff several years ago.

    Amazing stuff, all, but this fills me with jealousy. Why can't it be a 50?

    There is an amazing long double-breasted wool coat at the nearby Goodwill - made for an airline pilot, seems to have been official uniform gear. Tag is dated 1923. It looks like it was made for a man who weighs 100 lbs and stands 6' tall. It's on display as a costume piece.

    I heard that Louis Vuitton doesn't ever cut through their logo. Is this true?
    (I know there are exceptions for special pieces)

    That velvet Poole... Well, shit me.:nodding:

    I still need addresses from the following people. Please get that to me as soon as you get a chance. I don't like to draw names without addresses out of fear that someone disappears from the thread!

    I need an address from:
    @dukedishin
    @Hoofit
    @horse's_ass
    @Nell
    @rhz5001
    @the2ndhandman
    @Thrift Vader

    I attempted to match donations with members. I searched my PayPal account by SF username, real first name, and real last name. I couldn't find payments from the following people. Some of these guys just signed up, so I completely understand. It's also entirely possible that I made a mistake. I apologize if that's the case, just shoot me a PM with the date you transferred the money and I'll take a closer look.

    If your name is on this list and you haven't yet, please shoot me a $5 donation for The Ronald McDonald House to the PayPal address in the PM that was sent.

    I need a $5 donation from:
