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.

    Dunno which store this is. I hit one that I didn't love recently and found one Borrelli and Battistoni, but this sounds like a big load.

    [​IMG] I have since had to take down my makeshift home studio, but it was great to have my own photo space. Also, I noticed that you found HT in 36! This has only happened to me once, ever. I can't believe you found three, wondering if from the same guy.

    The other day I found a beautiful Orvis button down. It had a dry cleaning tag on it and blood stains on the right cuff. Somebody had tried hard to remove the stains. I was going to give it a try with the treatment but then I noticed that the buttons on that cuff were also scratched to hell. I'm thinking the owner had an accident or a bad fall (and put his hand out to break it).

    I had to resist buying those and the crepe sole shortwings VERY MUCH. I just bought a pair of Martegani chukkas for $90 on eBay and I just thought two pairs was too much. Still having to convince myself about the crepe soles, though.

    Jesus... and I thought people who bought nice new designer clothes had too much money. That is a pretty cool vest though.

    A little, maybe go with something to pull that yellow stripe out of the coat.

    That number pattern, red soles and style looks consistent with LL Bean.

    Wow, that's crazy! It's a nice vest but, uh... wow
    A little matchy matchy, but the texture helps. I really like the look overall though. [​IMG]
