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.

    Cheers,

    What do you think of ironing a jacket - iron set on low heat? I have heard an old wives tale that steaming suits is bad juju for them. Not sure if I believe this since I usually hang em in the shower for a few minutes and do not notice any issues.

    Sick. Michael Jordan is moving nearby. Let's hope he's a generous person and gives his stuff to Goodwill a lot. :thumbs-up:

    Can't get pictures yet, but FISHY WENT THRIFTING :)

    I found a pair of Brunello Cucinelli selvedge jeans in a well-washed color, size 31. The bottom has been stitched rolled up- is that a standard feature of construction or did somebody do that to them?

    Anyways, they're awesomesauce. And available. Curse my 29 inch waist of n00bishness.

    You know someone sold an old bottle of McDonald's McJordan BBQ for thousands, right? Anything with MJ's name on it is gold -- I can't imagine what something actually owned by him would go for.

    LOL Maybe I should recant my statement on the RL discount. I can get the discount but for ME or 1 item in a certain bucket (i.e. shoes, suits, and etc)

    So, if I don't get those in my size 9 or 9.5D depending on fit, then I can see if I can proxy but it could only be for one due to their policy or something :(

    So far 2 people have PM'd me.
