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,

    Oooh, I'm a 36. I wonder if the raws need a cold soak and if there is any shrinkage. Just bought two pair of Sugar Canes in Japan a couple weeks ago. May need to hold off, but if my eBay stuff does well this Sunday.......

    LOL I measure at a size 36 but fit a 34 comfortably. Maybe size 34 will fit you as well? Next time I'm there, I'll take some measurements of the 36.

    Average selling price is 50-70 on the bay it appears, so your call. If they're raw and still really dark, that edges them in your favor.

    Was feeling the smile of the thrift gods so I went out to three more spots tonight. I've been rewarded at each in the past, but it's the end of October and it's a halloween costume disaster for the next week. The first two are located in young neighborhoods so all hope was lost.

    The last stop only gave me these Borrelli twill trousers in my size. A little too relaxed in the leg and seat for my tastes, but I may have them altered.
