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.

    I picked up a nwot Oxxford navy blazer. The seller had Neiman Marcus listed as the maker, and in the description he mentioned the jacket being made by "Oxford" (one eks) twice in the description (tagged Oxxford from the pictures). The seller had a high rating with many transactions, but seemed to sell almost exclusively female clothes. I'm assuming that the seller didn't know who Oxxford was.

    I got the jacket for 30 bucks + shipping. I think that's a steal (though I don't know if the Oxxford that Neiman Marcus sells is the same quality as Oxxford elsewhere).

    That's exactly what I was thinking! I might hold out on the jacket I saw in the store in the hopes that the thread luck will do it's magic and I'll find one for far cheaper.

    Ran across these Cole Haans made in England, can anyone give any insight? Worth a cop for a flip? They're size 7-1/2, looks like they might have been made by Church's?

    Not sure on the flipping front, but they look like great shoes. If you plan on leaving them, I would love a proxy :D

    I've barely had any time to thrift in a couple weeks and no time for eBay either. [​IMG]

    But I think it's just been slow around here. Hoping it picks up this weekend.

    Unfortunately not, so you don't have to worry about it if it's a pain in the ass. Thanks anyway!

    Did you Photoshop these to be floating in front of a thrift rack?
