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 do have to say that of the new ralph listings, most all 'she' had called out purple, black, blue correctly.

    Just saying.

    Didn't I say "they" were in the know along with other sellers like goodwillyinsf? Yep that was me. This thread is a great community but way too many lurkers.

    lmao welcome to the thread!

    this is EXACTLY like the 50s superman tv show... the one where Perry White utters his catchphrase "great caesar's ghost!" one too many times and the actual ghost of Gaius Julius Caesar appears. needless to say, shenanigans ensue.

    so does this mean i can look forward to Wendy posting up a pic of her grill? lololol

    Haha, yeah. Welcome to our newest member?

    Well, been spending time in Houston with zero time to thrift (you're welcome). One day back in ATX before I head back for Superbowl week in H-town. The highlights:
    pop on true thrift vacca

    pop on Weston

    I hope the indian pattern thing hasn't jumped the shark yet, this is a cool linen henley.

    These are spectacular, and I should know who makes them, but I'm drawing a blank.
    Little help form the learned bros here?

    Bravo!

    [​IMG]

    called it a while ago, as did some other guys. how many lurkers do you think are selling with titles aimed at you guys? flipping high volume at low margin?
    how many lurkers are making youtube vids, finding stuff we talk about?

    do you not think we dictate what is hot ? that we are not the most influential figures in style on the planet?

    we are. and many people are making a living off our banter.

    I buy the stuff that I Want. and share some of the items that peak my interest, sometimes just to feel out a trade. (fishing)

    and don't be silly,[​IMG] if i took pictures of all the cool shit i see? it would fill the thread, for weeks.
    3-4 items on one rack? to show what stuff i pass, because there is something better than those items hidden in there. that while some folks chase mythical brands? i am not impressed by them. and have stuff i am searching for. yes, the stuff is cheap. close to your "thrift prices". or what you would pay in a buffalo exchange or for self online. then brag about it.
    you are going to need to do a lot better if you want to call me out. -because i am buying swag for one dollar, and passing on Mastermind and Supreme.

    why? be a leader, not a follower. my style is my own.

    Have a potentially exciting watch coming in. If legit, should be a clean 1-150% profit margin. Anyone know Bell&Ross well?

    I understand ESL barriers, but you're reading comprehension is mistaken, I was just genuinely curious, not "calling you out". You post some pictures of cool stuff that I would never wear, but I know is valuable and hard to find and I was wondering why you didn't purchase it. I am always interested in hearing about the "thrifting" scene in other countries and just imagined that Japan would be expensive and more like our consignment stores in pricing. Either way, I have no quarrel with you!
