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.

    Mr. Cotton Dockers,

    Thank you ever so much for the amazing three-piece. It needs some work, but will be an excellent addition to my wardrobe.




    Why is it raining in LA?

    So, I have been looking for a bowler hat for the last couple of years. Long before my SF days and knowing what quality stuff was, I purchased one off ebay only to have it arrive as a cheap throw away party hat. Fast forward to last week when thriftydood posted that amazing hat haul. Low and behold, what did I see? Just what I had been looking for, a vintage bowler made by a great company in fantastic condition. There were some back and forth between us when I realized I didn't have anything to trade Mr. thriftydood at the moment (he is a rather difficult size for finding in the thrifts). So he said he would send me the hat for future consideration. Awesome I thought, this guy is pretty cool. Then he says he noticed that I like knit ties and would I like him to send a few with the hat, as he bought some awhile ago but realized he doesn't like knit ties that much. Sure, I says, send them on over. Well, the package arrived last night and I was blown away to say the least. Not only was the hat impeccable, but he sent me, not 1

    Nice!

    I actually picked one up this weekend with you in mind from your post back in the late summer/early fall. But alas it is only about a size 7 which IIRC you wear a 7-3/8

    Well, I have been determined to find one this whole time. Was really excited about the one I grabbed, though not silk lined like the one dood found. It had no size tag, but was only $5 so it was worth the risk.

    This is probably the most amazing thing I have ever seen. I am very jealous. Who zams it for you? Does a neighbor volunteer to maintain it or does the city actually pay for it to be zam'd throughout the day? Want to know what that would look like here? I have always wanted to pay pond hockey. This seems to solve the problem of chasing pucks in snow banks though!

    Seriously though, Florida does have a good amount of outdoor roller rinks, which work well. But wearing full gear in 90 degree weather isn't so great most of the time.

    Give me a few days and I'll PM you a short piece about ice, ice time, and other hockey related matters.
    If there are any other hockey freaks on here, let me know and I'l copy you.

    At lunch I scored a gianna versace navy turtle neck sweater, zegna sweater, zegna shirt, PINK shirt w/ an old label, and 2 BB VTG suits w flat front trousers. One is a 3-piece, and I may keep both if they actually fit (they are near my size range). Didn't have time to try them on before getting back to work. If they don't fit, will make one available. Pictures later.

    Concealed, nice haul. Easy, that bowler hat!
    Unrelated: I tagged (catch/release) my first Gerry down jacket. It was reversible and fitted but was surplus to my needs.
