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,

    I am up to about 7 or 8 because I am giving them to my GF's whole family for their Christmas presents. I actually started looking on eBay and the prices were pretty darn high for a gag gift!

    My first skeet blanket in a while. Probably not hideous enough.

    Went by a couple stores this evening and picked up a nice dark blue Pendleton tweed sports coat. Oh, and also picked up an Avirex B-3 bomber jacket, 44R, dated 1986. To paraphrase Robert Diniro as Travis Bickle in Taxi Driver: "The Avirex B-3 is a monster". I'm going to be pissed as hell if we have a mild winter. There's a fair chance it'll end up on eBay eventually but I gotta wear it for at least one full day.

    Here's some stuff I found but left. If anyone has any interest, PM me and I'll proxy if the items are still there tomorrow.

    Burberry London sports coat, model "Kensington", 48R

    Orphaned 3B houndstooth 42L jacket, Loro Piana super 110. Damage to one sleeve lining. No other labels but the tag says "Model: Garrick".

    Pal Zileri, 3B 46R. Didn't care for the fabric (wife hated it too) and the lining was a two-tone iridescent tonic that gave me bad memories of the 80s. YMMV.

    My thrift find of the day. Harbor Master by Jonathan Logan. Super flannel zip liner when removed exposes a bright red inner lining. Mint!

    Clear double stick tape makes for a much more elegant presentation.
