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,

    Just an update to the BC I got from @Aging in rhythm

    1) added elbow patches
    2) shortened the sleeves to get rid of rip
    3) patched assorted holes

    Spring is here and that means taking my bike on 50 km long thriftstore tours, carrying 4 plastic bags full of clothes and smelling like a sweaty hobo. It´s great. While going into the first thrift store of today, I heard a young man dressed in a Stone Island jacket ranting; "there is nothing at thrift stores around here expect for pissy socks of dead grandmas for 10 euros". There is that, but there´s also this:

    Pop on RRL!

    Does anyone have a leather card wallet they'd trade with my Saint Laurent monogram one? Preferably Mulberry or something of the sort.

    In this case, I believe the size is a 9.5D.

    The number 495 contains the width and the size. The first digit represents the width. A=1, B=2, C=3, D=4, E=5. The remaining digits are the size.

    Great resource is the vcleat blog. http://vcleat.com/vintage-shoe-sizing-and-terms/

    It's great condition, used but looked after. It did have an embossing that has fallen out but not that noticeable due to the the pattern! Can you send pics of the gooch to me? (Inb4 Fueco)

    Yeah I was just thinking it might be priced even higher than Kiton at retail, I remember reading an article years ago about he was trying to take on bijan and his shop is always dead until someone shows up and drops 300k

    I was shocked when I found out about retail on Bijan. Sold a used Bijan tie a couple months back for $115
