1. I'd like to announce that animated avatars are now available again. You'll have to reload, but they are once more possible.

    We've been doing a ton of work behind the scenes. The site load speed was already under 1/2 of what Huddler's was, on average, and we installed cloudflare, which means that the site should be even faster. A ton more will go on in the weeks and months to come, and some things will be more visibile, and some less.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    A few guys who posted pictures of their dogs also named them Oliver. That's a popular dog name, it seems.

    Yeah, I think the reason I've been lucky is because I have really only been in the shirt business so far (barrelntrigger can attest to this, ha) so I fit everything into a flat rate envelope. I even managed to get 4 BB shirts (2 polos and two ocbd's) into one legal sized FRE and made it there no problems. Their customs taxes are the most retarded I've heard about, but other than that, things get their fine even when marked "merchandise" and not "gift".

    Oh, and I just print the shipping label eBay gives me. The one half-page label (not the 4 half pages like England requires).

    I block all buyers from Italy. Their customs laws specifically state, no shoes, no leather, no haberdashery. That pretty much sums up all of my listings. It's unfortunate, but I won't break international law to make a buck.

    Picked up a pair of these today, only they are brown.

    Allen Keith, Anyone know of this brand? I've never seen it before and can't find much about it. They seem to be very well made.

    The shoes pictured are not the ones I found, was just referencing the logo. The ones I picked up are Brown and size 8 E. Pics later tonight.

    Another good luck to all the people preparing for the bar exam! I am a few years out of school, but it looks like I may be taking another bar this winter. Stupid Californians and their non reciprocity.
