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.

    - Some people posted some decent finds
    - Others went into conversation that wasn't strictly 'bragging about thrift finds'
    - Some self-proclaimed forum police drafted their declaration of thread-independance; covering the proper use of the thread and proposing 8 sister threads and 2 new forums
    - 2 or 3 noobs posted some christian dior ties and wanted to know if they were any good
    - 17 jokes regarding christian dior ties were made
    - darkmatter7 posted finds that confirm he has made a deal with the devil
    - someone called him out for frauding
    - Some Brionis were captured in the wild

    I didn't actually read most of it, so some of these are guesses.

    Nope, he's my size and found an epic number of older AE's in great condition... Trying not to PM him about trades because I WANT them, but don't NEED them.

    1. True dat, but let me elaborate: Everyone got serious wood at DM7's finds. Several people tried to compete. Lost. Good-natured ribbing/hate (depending on perspective) ensued. We swirled dangerously close to descending into Thread-Down #4587 (topic: Is DM7 really a front for Pesjik, and are his finds an elaborate ruse to rule the Interwebs?). But then we didn't, opting instead for a smorgas-bitch-board approach.
    2. Until we decided to descend into Thread-Down # 4588: SDW vs MC
    3. In the meantime, several people asked for picture/selling advice.
    4. New guy joined with TONS of awesome shoes too big for you.
    5. Several people definitively demonstrated thrifting's dead. But then others conclusively established it wasn't, a determination with which the first people disagreed. So luckily that's resolved. (Again).
    6. Not-Frenchy (wait, Frenchy?) has resurfaced.
    7. In unrelated news, someone tried to call Spoo out.
    8. Somewhere in all of this, we learned that Natty Nataku, master of the ninja style skills/knowledge, likes super-vintage Sears Men's Store stuff. Which I find hypnotically enigmatic.
    9. There's a Bizarre-O thread out there on Dappered. That's where Grendel's Clark Kent resides.

    EDIT: Several of you beat me to it. DAMN YOU! THRIFT DOWN #4589 is OOOOONNNNNNN!

    That about the size of it?

    11D private label "Michele Negri" Double monstrap. Does anybody have an idea of a ballpack price on these shoes (retail, off course)?

    ^^^My guess would be ...north of $500...based on the look of their website, the lines they carry (Kiton, Isaia) and the look of the shoe. The last reminds me of some Tramezzas I have.

    I would hope SF knows better at least though. Nataku speaks highly of them I know. I can give a testimony later this week when mine arrives.

    I have a pair of those Allen Edmonds. One of my go-to shoes, you can wear them with everything.

    Some great finds in your posts Eazye. Hope to see some more. And the sofa in the background is impressive!

    I somehow missed Easy E's awesomeness in the middle of all that really-expensive-generic-tennis-shoe discussion. That is a lot of crap - weeks of head down thrifting - what kind of mileage are you covering? I cover 70 miles or so, and granted its in a non-Portland Oregon freeway corridor, but damn... I would not come up with all that stuff in months.

    I found myself in a resort town in central Oregon this weekend. Worst Goodwiil I've been to in my life - they wanted, at a minimum, $25 bucks per sportcoat. We're talking like Stafford, Haband, whatever.

    I am guessing you were in Bend - Great town, but not a decent men's store for miles and miles.

    Yeah, Bend. Ok town, the mountains are nice.

    BTW, I've noticed since you started posting here that certain places in certain parts of the Eugene/Springfield area are producing less...
