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.

    A shout out to barrelntrigger for hooking me up with the LVC's. :slayer:

    These are definitely not the jeans I grew up with. When I opened the package and saw just how short the rise and skinny the legs were, I was wondering what I got myself into. Putting them on made me think a little of putting on a wetsuit. But then once I got them buttoned up, it was all good: snug, and I definitely don't need a belt, but no binding and actually pretty comfortable. I wasn't expecting that combination.

    I wouldn't treat it, its got that great outdoor heavy duty look to it, and probably would fair well on eBay with the Japanese market if you aren't going to keep

    Thanks for that!


    Those are great sunglasses, I have the same pair. I wear them far more than I thought I would when I originally bought them.

    I'm sure someone can date that Pucci better than I could as I know little about it. The buttons are cool but I hate gold/brass buttons on camel/tan/khaki jackets. They never seem like they belong!


    I ran across a couple of things today that I left behind. One was a jacket that was well made and the label said "Airing, made in Italy." The label, however, looked like a recent Fay label. I don't know if I saw the similarities or whether it's because I mentioned last week that I'd like to find one. Anyone have a clue on the name?


    Also, I meant to say something earlier but I forgot. All of you guys on the east coast, take care. I'm watching the news and following the thread in GC, but stay safe and dry!

    This is good, but I had to say that with the face blurred, this reminds me of Rorschach's outfit.
