    Spoiler tool use:

    1. Create the content that you would like to put into a singular spoiler. For example additional photos or an explanation
    2. Select the specific content you want to be put in the spoiler
    3. Click on the spoiler tool button that looks like a quote block but is blacked out
    4. A little window will pop up that will enable you to edit the content and title one last time before you click submit
    5. Click OK on the window and your spoiler should up with a cream background
    6. Repeat for other spoilers in your post

    This may be too noobie an explanation for capn, but using this process, the tool has never messed anything up for me. Plus I remember a few people not knowing how to use it at all many pages ago. Hope this helps.

    I know, sorry![​IMG] I hadn't checked the count today, but as soon as it happened I was like "Oh crap, I hope one of those wasn't 40K" Anyway, I now have Black Eyed Peas "I Gotta Feeling" stuck in my head. It feels like New Years Eve for these milestone posts.

    Nice find on the Brioni, I have pretty much lost hope that I will ever see one in real life....but still, I keep searching.

    It used to work for me that way, until about a month ago. Now whenever I spoiler something it just moves to the top and gets stuck there, such a pain. Actually it moves a copy to the top in a spoiler and the original content also remains below unsploilered. I thought it was my computer or something, but it does the same thing at work too.

    Even if I go back in and edit it to be spoilered, it goes to the top.

    See what I mean above.

    Maybe it's a browser issue? It may be messing up on different comp if you are using the same browser. I use FF and have had no issues, but chrome messes up formatting for me quite often in other areas.

    You can have one, but you need to weigh at least 250-275lbs for most of them.

    Pretty sure the Hermes is fake. 1) I've never seen that "100% silk" tag, especially not in that location on the tie, 2) if it's silk printed (which it looks to be), I'm pretty sure it's not supposed to have the "Hermes-Paris" (that's only for the woven/knitted), 3) the entire horse and cart/cart driver are...way off, 4) the seams/folds also look...off for Hermes.

    For more certain authentication, 1) can you flip the thin blade so we can see the printed Hermes badge? If there isn't one, that's a dead giveaway, 2) look underneath the folds (like you were showing off a 7-fold). There should be a thin silk "loop". If not, another giveaway.

    EDIT: Lol, the cart driver looks like he's being held/stuck up, with his hands thrown up in the air. Definitely fake IMO.

    Also, dayum on all those T&As and Dunhills. Very nice!!

    I though it was fake, but $1.50 to take a gamble... whatever.

    I spent like an hour at that tie rack. Every time I went through a row a new tie showed up!

    You guys make my self-imposed temporary buying hold difficult to stick to (I do not count stuff I thrift for myself, everyone has limits). That 16 TA looks nice, catside. And holy crap, lots of great tie hauls out there lately! BTW wasn't someone looking for a bright madras polo tie? I snagged one today with that in mind, so speak now please. Also, can someone please school me on Gant, it seems to me that the Gant rigger stuff is desirable, and the hugger/rugger stuff too right? I got a gant Rugger today, but I pass plain gant labels ALL THE TIME, so please tell me I haven't been making a mistake passing on these. If not, I could probably accrue 100 over the next month...
