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,

    Hey, @Fueco is this World Jersey odd enough to be worth anything? It appealed to the retro side of me.

    I'd think it would appeal to the PEZ collecting space nerd cyclists out there. I can think of a few of those...

    Oh I need a stretch break before I head back to taking more photographs. Here is some from the latest round:

    First of all, Thanks to everyone in the eBay thread that has been giving me picture advice. Baby steps here but most of these were not shot in the RAW format.

    My Best Find of the Week. Due to a glitch in the eBay notification system I had not received the message that the buyer had paid until almost a week later. I apologized to the buyer and sent it out at a steep discount. This was a first time buyer as well. A week later I receive this in the mail:

    A hand written thank you note. A full one side thanking me for the item. Made my night!

    Have a wonderful night everyone!!

    Cheers, thriftbros!

    Not quite thrifted, but purchased at about 33% off of retail.

    Your welcome I guess. I don't really get label shocked Just another pair of shoes. If i really wanted them they would have walked out with me. I was going to get for someone else but they were gone. These are grails to me possibly from the same guy as there the same size.

    So, a mysterious package shows up on my doorstep today. After carefully lifting it and listening for any ominous ticking noise, I open it and find a nice surprise.

    [​IMG] You could have been killed. But in all seriousness, that is very awesome they do that. That AE is a real class act.

    Brother, imagine my shock (and utter fear) when my wife read my post and said that a mercury-switch bomb just has to be tilted to detonate.

    Often though not always true of made to measure -- that's why they went made to measure; because off the rack didn't fit right -- plus their house cut is very severe in terms of wide shoulders and narrow waist.



    that grenadine is amazing.

    Wow! AE just went up a few notches in my books. Very cool

    Wow those Armani shearlings are amazing. I actually found a sweet shearling the other day too by Toronto designer Roger Edwards. Based on my Google results he made for Pierre Trudeau and the like lol
