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.

    Just one find today during lunch-hour thrift but... It's my first Eton tie I've found, and 7-fold at that.

    Yeah, it seems so. My problem is, I want to keep stuff for myself, especially when it's my first "find" of a type. lol. (I'm actually wearing this one today). Just like I could probably easily move my Burberry London "nova check" tie (recent) I found, but it's my only one I've found, and I like it, so it has not been listed on Ebay yet.

    Christmas is coming though...so we'll see if cash needs, out-weigh "personal wants".

    My guess is no: LV sould be ashamed to have seams that look like that, no matter what the 'made in' tag says. That's not even good quality serging.

    ^^^ Also: The words on that tag mix the different languages. Ex. "Fabrique en" is French, but the French word for Italy is "Italie", not "Italia". Fake.

    Classic Chinese knockoff wheere the overdoo the branding. That's the LV Damier print. However never has LV every put the monograms inside that print, let alone made a fucking checker board.

    Edit: Also that tag is a complete fucking joke. Their product identifying systems are like designed by the fucking NSA. (not true just an exaggeration for point)

    That's like Canal St. bad. With LV, its either Damier or its classic monogram as base design. With leathers then theres also the Taiga. Of course there are special versions with art added etc to the leather pieces but as far as knits? Forever separate but equal. (please disregard that phrasing immediately).

    There are hundreds of websites to get you going immediately. Air Force Ones with Gucci Monograms? Duh. Velour Suits with LV monograms covering the whole thing? Obviously. Get to it.

    Well a little over the top in personal opinion but yea a perfect example of what a legit pattern would look like. Separating the monogram and the damier checkerboard.
