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.

    I don't know; I lost something like 5 pounds in my freshman year so you might end up needing some of my 14.5 shirts.

    I hope not my neck is disproportionately skinny enough as it is, 6 5' with a 15.5 neck looks weird but 14.5 would look even weirder [​IMG]

    question for the secret Santa peoples. would you be mildly disappointed if you received an awesome spring type jacket? I found a great silk/linen unstructured jacket in a most wonderful spring pattern. hesitant to gift it to someone who might be expecting winter wares? anyone?

    Did anyone go to the Barbour thing in NH?

    On the To Ki To keep in mind that they're Japanese sizes. The XL fit me and I'd normally wear a Large... My Beaufort 42 is much bigger on me than my Barbour x To Ki To motorcycle jacket

    Wow, didn't think I'd be in the top 10. This is however, the only thread I actually post in regularly.



    Wow, that is just fantastic! Good score, I would wear the hell out of that. :slayer:





    I have, in fact, done almost every color and it's worked almost every time. The only thing I've ever destroyed was a Barracuta Harrington jacket. Moral of the story, don't use the treatment on anything with a colored liner. :facepalm: I actually found a Bijan linen tuxedo shirt last year that was the most disgusting shade of yellow, one soak in the ol' oxyclean, followed by a hot wash in the laundry and that sumbitch looked and smelled like a fresh spring morning.

    I'm seeing this at one of the Value Village stores i hit regularly, ties start at $6.99 for beat-ass stained polyester, saw a moth eaten and frayed prada suit at $99 and a nwt hugo boss unlined cotton stretch that looked like it had been in a garbage bag for a few months for $249.99. Both of the suits were gone within a week :(

    Man, reading this thread has become an experience comparable to Infinite Jest: I need two bookmarks -- one for the past drama, one for the present. :slayer:
