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,

    @Txwoodworker pulled an American Giant hoodie right out of the array of sweatshirts like it was magic in our meetup in Houston. Gave it straight out to me and it's a keeper! Thanks for your generosity!

    Tried hard this week for the scavenger hunt title but got stuck on 8/10 on Wed and never broke through. Just boarded the plane for our spring break trip to Ireland so I'll submit my meager finds for the week before we take off. Big props to Mr. G from SD for a fun contest this week!

    Okay well now it seems this was real. At least it hits all the marks and there is the exact same one on eBay for $500 from a reputable seller. This is going away for Christmas for my wife.

    It's just bad business. Dude in the back openly looking up shit on eBay to jack up the prices is gold, too. That store sucks balls for the most part, but every once in a while it's alright.

    Can take better pics, just snapped these ones when I dropped chair off at my house. Got some pretty decent pickups that I need to organize and photograph, too. Ranging from Canali tux, Polo shirts and jackets, and TNF (6+).

    Yeah, you dig it? I thought it was cool too.
    As if I didnt already love you, I love you more now - that would have taken me forever to research. God bless you sir!
    Merry Xmas, Mrs. Woofa.
    Gravati shoes are the most undervalued brand ever.

    There I am, minding my own business going through the ties and next thing you know @Shanejosephxxx is tapping me on my shoulder. We're standing there talking thrift and at least 3 other flipper vultures started circling us, was pretty hysterical.

    How does one identify Spoo in a thrift?

    (I imagine he emits a faint, but barely noticeable glow like Bruce Lee, and when he walks in the sound system stops dead in its tracks with a scratching record sound, then plays Stan Bush's The Touch. Still, there's the matter of no one ever having seen his face...)

    He's a man of mystery, but if your google-fu is good enough you can find a picture of him (no stalker)

    Huge Bond fan, but have never seen that one. If I came across that on TV by accident, I'd have thought Connery was in an alt porn film I didn't know about. Which would explain why if I ever saw those things in a thrift store, I wouldn't touch them even with gloves on.
    It's the Creed. -- Thrifted in a tux last night. Thanks for the JPress, NYC.
