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.

    Samuel,

    Yes it can be done one of my tailors offers this but at $110, I'm sure you can get it done for less. Are we all drinking tonight?:slayer:

    Skiing Vermont is a green light. Just booked a lodge in Stowe. Iove the 1818 madison so the cost might be OK.

    Today, I picked up a PRL blazer, LB shirt, C&P Shirt, And an Armani, only to find that every single one of them was damaged in some way I'd missed taking them out of the store. To say the least, I wasn't thrilled.

    I decided, however, to check out another local store, because I refuse to believe that the thrift gods are that big of dicks to people who sacrifice an entire nights sleep (and recovering from college drinking) to broach their domain...

    They aren't. :) :) :) :)

    Who the hell sells one of these to a SECOND HAND PLACE, anyways?????? o_O It's literally flawless, considering it's distressed from the start. Paid fifteen bucks (They hadn't the slightest clue what it was), but something tells me I can flip it for a LOT more than that...

    Thread has been on fire lately. My findings from yesterday seem measly in comparison. Nonetheless I promised them so here:
    BB Sport Shirt for me. N/A

    And lastly, My first RLPL. Unfortunately only a polo. I have a feeling there was more in the store at somepoint and someone forgot to look through the polo's rack. Size L, available

    Had to leave behind a Faconnable Tailleur blazer due to holes. On the topic of being drunk in the thread, I've had a few shots of Jager tonight, I apologize for any typos, haha

    I always leave basics and the MADE IN CHINA pieces behind.
    I guess it doesnt matter if its for yourself but if you're looking to flip...Theory is VERY hit or miss.

    I would hand it off to a consignor. Im gonna say Spoo cause I bidders flock to his listings and he could get you top dollar for it.

    A couple firsts today...

    The first Battistoni I've found that wasn't shredded and my first Barba. Absolutely the thickest tie I've ever handled. Wonder how dense a 9 fold Kiton is...

    So, I just gotta say....im fuckin ITCHING to get out and go hunting (and by hunting I mean thrifting).

    Its been a few days and its killing me that I have no money to make it happen. Ugh, this is worse than when I was a heavy drinker. Traded one bad habit for another.

    Five dollah cash? :p

    I'm going to put it on SF's classifieds... I've never seen a shadow plaid balmain for sale before though, so I really have no idea what an appropriate price is :/

    How would I hand something like that off to a consignor? I think you're probably right...

    I am absolutely amazed... I thought I'd found something good... but the response I've gotten is really something special :)
