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.

    Obviously GMMCL who also happen to have stuff to trade you :D

    So you twiggies what does a middle aged mate with many years of beer consumption of more gallons than the sum of ages of the lot of you -read a healthy paunch- can buy as a selvedge jean other than your classic 501 which fits me well but I heard they changed the cut. I bought BR online and the fit was meh and it was not real selvedge turns out, returned

    Jeeezus GMMcL, as an 18 or 18.5 neck fella (and who likes Charvet ties to boot) that load was... Yowza. PMs definitely sent.

    Ok, those are pretty incredible. I have my eye on a pair on eBay that claim to have retailed for between $1,000 and $1,300...we'll see if my wallet can handle the final price.

    alright dudes, lemme ask catside's question in a language you guys can understand: what's the denim equivalent to AE Walnut Strands? nothing limited edition or hard to find or super expensive.

    also: looks like EVERYONE is online. :slayer:

    Wow, you guys have been busy, I woke up to 250 posts....








    Thanks for all of that. It makes me feel a bit more comfortable wearing it. I told Spoo that I may have to dabble in organized crime just to get a bit more use out of it!


    No problem Hans...can't wait to see the Bridge Coat in action! Glad it will get some use.



    That coat is definitely going to get some use this winter! I'll throw some pics up the first time I wear it! Thanks again for it, it's awesome!


    :worship: Well done!








    All of those made me LOL and I really enjoy seeing them next to one another.





    I'd like to note that within a few posts, I was compared to a crime boss, Peter Pan and Nick Wooster. I'll accept them all :D I'm actually an eccentric billionaire that likes to go through thrift stores as a sport and to see how the little people live.

    I picked up a pair of Naked & Famous slim guy hemp/cotton selvedge today. The same store had 10+ pairs of Jean Shop selvedge for $45 a pair. Traditional, billowy cuts that didn't flatter me, but if anyone's interested, PM and I can get you the phone number. I'm sure they'd be willing to go a phone order.

    I came across a whole bunch of nice Canali and Zegna shirts today but they were all either large or extra large so I passed.

    Brostein walks around NYC wearing clothes, I find it ridiculous. I could give fuck all where he's from. I bow to your superior taste and knowledge in all things, mr. "I come from an understanding of all independent music."
