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,

    I tried this for the first time just a few days ago at Savers. Guy sporting a Polo cookie puffer jacket. Me: "Nice coat!" Him: "Thanks, it's Polo." (stretches out the jacket so I can better see the cookie patch) Me: "I saw that. Very nice!" Him: "Yeah I got it for $10 at XYZ thrift store." Me: "Awesome, any interest in selling it?" Him: "Naw man, it's freezing outside!" (It was indeed) Me: "Sure I get it. Take it easy." I really wish I had been carrying more than like $15 to wave in front of him. He had no clue what he was wearing but I wasn't in a position to make a move.. Guess it's time to start carrying paper money again.

    What do you guys think about this sportcoat? I have solid navy, brown, blue w/ windowpane and brown with windowpane. Would this be a good addition?

    Hey, for $45 shipped for a staple tie, it matters not a bit.

    Sad day for fans of the NBA and fans of flashy suits. Craig Sager passed away today. For those who don't know, Sager was a sideline reporter for years and is known for wearing bright, loud, flashy suits during his interviews. From what everyone says, he was a legit good dude who had fun with people clowning on him for his suits.

    Here's a video of Kevin Garnett telling him to burn his Isaia suit.

    This is nothing special, but I found a Green Mountain Threadworks backpack about 15 years ago and haven't seen anything from them since. The pack has great details and is well made. Was thrilled to find something else of their's. Pretty cool and it fits.
