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.

    Weird. I was just telling my girlfriend the story of how I once knocked her over at a party. This was maybe 10 years ago. I'd never been a fan, but have to say, in person, she was stunning. So much so that 10 years later I'm still talking about how I once knocked her to the floor.

    Probably would have passed on that first one, but damn nice.

    Wish I had seen this :wow:

    Cheers brother, it was a real pleasure to thrift and hang with you today, I look forward to many more times like this afternoon. Wear that Oxxford in good health, it fits you so well off the rack! It turns out that jacket is machine washable btw, so pictures coming tomorrow after it dries.

    Mexi, hope you like our present!

    The rumors are true and despite reports to the contrary I confirm that I wear fabric on my body. That said, Eli Tahari is really nice stuff so people thought you might be trying to make a buck. Thanks for the hook up [​IMG] I got a few shirts for you from unknown manufacturers that both Klobber and I thought were super nice quality.

    JP is not from the bay, but is a homie who loves our music.

    Oh and after seeing "Safety Not Guaranteed," which I highly recommend, my total babe crush is

    Thanks, They were total beaters I picked up just for the experiment. I don't know that I would have the nerve to do it on a good pair. Of course if it was a good pair, there would be no need to do it. These shoes were $2 and I put a little life back in them.....not sure it was really worth all of that time, but it was fun to see the transformation.

    I logged in to see a bunch of new posts and was hoping someone managed to identify these for me. Instead, just a bunch of back and forth on guns :confused:

    Sorry for the self-quote, but can anyone help me out?

    I am no fan of guns, and yes I have hunted, and yes I have been robbed at gunpoint, so I guess I have seen both ends of the spectrum. They seem extremely barbarian, and I would rather spend my time creating than destroying.

    I know some of you who are not moving high volumes via ebay - or even some of us who just dabble in this - carry some inventory.

    Has anyone ever gotten together with others (either menswear, womenswear or vintage) and done something like a semi-annual pop-up store?

    Did it work for you?

    I have no pom pom topped hats and have never worn one [​IMG]

    I also have no madras sportcoats (unfortunately), am not tiny (unfortunately), and don't do kung fu (although I've heard it's pretty fun).

    Clearly that thread derail has to be due to the slim thrift pickings which we all experience every summer. No way that thread derail would have happened in the winter.


    Also some love for Klobber....those shirts you sent are fantastic. :slayer:
