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.

    If they were shell they are certainly worth picking up. Shell can be brought back from looking pretty bad as long as the leather isn't cracked or cut.

    All the time. They know up front what the shipping is going to cost, and are always prepared to pay the price. Sometimes the shipping is more than the selling price, it's crazy, but if you gotta have something, you gotta have it.. I guess.

    had a feeling i SHOULD'VE picked them up, just wasn't sure since one shoe had a little damage to the eyelet (shoelace was starting to tear into the eyelet, which I imagine is repairable in some way (maybe added metal eyelets? and they were resoled, not by AE.

    Haha, but when I saw them initially, I didn't see any micro-creasing and I was like

    Being they were my first possible shell sighting, but I couldn't check the model number until I got home, I neglected to pick them up.

    depends on where you will be. I had some decent luck in Sioux Falls - but take that with a grain of salt since I currently thrift in the wasteland known as Iowa.

    ebay feedback....

    looking at that sellers feedback - I see two things that really piss me off.

    1. someone buys something for 99 fucking CENTS and then leaves negative feedback. c'mon, really? what do you expect for .99?

    2. someone (zafirof2) had a negative experience and left negative feedback on 02/06 that says "ripped off. Do not buy...." AND THEN, that same buyer leaves neutral feedback on transactions dated 02/10 and 03/03. Really? You bought from the same buyer after leaving negative feedback.

    That kind of shit really gets me hot. :censored: .... not in a hawt :inlove: kind of way.

    :lookaround:

    OK, guys, come on: Brioni? Ticket Pocket? Double vent? Cool pattern? Wool/silk blend? This alone deserves some love; leaving aside the RLPL linen, Gucci and Charvet ties (age notwithstanding) and other decent items. Granted, the pictures sucked, but still... [​IMG] OK, self-aggrandizement over. :paranoia:
