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,

    Im pretty sure ive read on here furs aren't worth the time, but I couldn't pass up these vintage mink pelts for less than the cost of a really cheap lunch. So was it a total waste of a few bucks? Any tips for flipping? There are no maker tags, but it is very well made with very high quality pelts.

    Waited until I received a shipping notice before I bragged on an e-thrift. Frankly I wouldn't have blamed him if they didn't ship

    My rule of thumb is that anything that says "high fashion" on the label was made for tourons in Bangkok.

    I'm certainly not the resident expert but, based on the gator and croc I've seen, those look irregular enough to be the real thing.

    Good luck in the finals to all those from Cleveland

    Went out after and had a good night. PPU was higher than normal as I only had one discount code and I made two stops. Not everything pictured as I'm tired and lazy lol

    Passed on the Georgio Armani. Was made by Vestimenta but wasn't a particularly nice cloth and was a hard 3 although no canvas in the lapel so maybe could have added some roll I think. There was an emperio as well but meh.

    I know boss gets a horrible rep here but that navy blazer is sweet and def NWOT. I really like the detail of the white stitching on the lapel. Everything else is my size

    They look real, but this crease is giving me pause.
