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,

    Two finds today

    How might I authenticate these? There's also a metal inlay on the temple that says "Ray-Ban," and there's a tiny B&L logo on the lens but I couldn't get my camera to focus on it.

    It was actually two different places. The place where I got the shoes had tons of good stuff, but all pretty high prices. I did see 3 100% rayon Brioni Hawaiian shirts fo $40/each.

    George Clinton is way up there for me, as well. The first show I saw, that is, back in the mid 90s. Blew me so totally away I went to two others, each more disappointing than the last, and he charged top dollar all the way. Not sure if he's touring anymore, but he shouldn't be, an object lesson on how not to do drugs. Daughter of a good friend of mine was managing a club where he appeared five years back or so. Spent a considerable amount of time smoking crank and crack in a back room and could barely be bothered to go onstage. Very sad. But the absolute bomb back in the day.

    And at the end of the day, after it is tracked and signed for and videotaped right down to the package being opened, the buyer files a complaint, eBay sides with him and you lose.

    Big shout out to HansderHund, Tweets and eazye for packages that arrived over the past week. :slayer:

    All are stand up guys who've helped me almost finish off my Want List. Time to start a new one (vol. 2) I guess. :nodding:

    I purchased a pair of J&M boat shoes that are half a size too big... Fits me right but foot slips when I walk. Any heel insert would suffice? Or is there a recommended insert for this sort of thing. Any input would be recommended.

    Pretty sure it was TheWGP who was looking for hangers to match his suits, Oxxford included. Very fair trader and cool l dude all around.

    Just got back from a 6 day vacation to NYC and Philly to see 545 unread posts here, looks like I have some catching up at work tomorrow. In the meantime, I managed to make one short thrifting stop in each city and the only good find was this:

    Turnbull & Asser Cashmere Tie

    Look forward to wearing it. Also picked up a slim fit BB houndstooth shirt and I think that was about it.
