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.

    Any thoughts on this? E-thrift, but I'm thinking it's fake, as I've seen that label on shirts but not scarves. Also, ribbed knit looks odd to me on an LP cashmere scarf.

    Label looks really high up off of the finished edge. Dunno if that means legit or no but just seems unusual

    That looks like somebody has sewn a Loro tag onto a random scarf to me.

    I was afraid of that. I wanted to check with my favorite bunch of Yahoos before I contacted the seller.

    Is it normal to have no tags inside ?
    Are these OG or the reissues?

    Check for tags along the inside, behind the plastic mesh. Sold a pair recently and that's where they were on mine.

    @impuntura just grab them. They're the 'Independence Day' Jordan 5s.

    @SpooPoker Thank you. I gambled on it off the 'bay, so I'll take that. I just couldn't find another similar one, and my spidey senses were saying "fake".

    Yup. My first LP scarf had the same tag (I paid retail at Neimans :/)

    @impuntura they look legit to me. The 5 is a pretty popular model. That's not the most desirable colorway and with that scuff on the side, that'll hurt resale but if you are/were in low enough, it might be worth your time.

    This is one of the large oil portraits I mentioned last night. A little bigger than four feet diagonally.

    We also got some abstract work from a prof at Yale and photographic prints from RISD. Everything except for the oils needs a new frame, so I hope to come across those in the coming months.
