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,

    Don't think I ever posted this - my fiance found it at a goodwill in NYC. Fits great, no alternations needed.

    Thanks for the help, guys! I thought the same, that it must have frayed at an edge and was repaired. Chet, that's definitely a restrained pattern, very nice. I bought mine from a flipper on the cheap. I have two others, but one was gratis as it has a giant stain in the middle. Not sure what I should do about that.
    Wow, nice find! Not to many Hermés scarves make an appearance on this thread!

    Yes. Very much so. Texas is much more Southern than Florida, and Nevada has no relation whatsoever. Northern Florida is somewhat Southern (because it's full of people who were pushed out of Georgia) but southern Florida bears no cultural resemblance to the South (or anywhere else in the US for that matter).

    This remind me of the gangs in LA. Cousins play on both of the red and blue teams. Great family gathering times!

    Lol, I prefer this one to the usual Spoo signal. I hope you don't mind that I stole this from you, Wes. [​IMG]

    What I think is strange about this thread is that the standards are constantly raised a bit. I remember when a Borrelli or Brioni shirt would be surprising, but it seems they're found on a daily basis with little fanfare. I posted a pair of Vass shoes a couple of months ago and I can't remember if anything was said. One category that seems to consistently get comments though, and it happens to be one of my favorite "categories" in this thread, are the vintage pieces. Things that are old get a lot of love here.

    Anyway, not a complaint or a rant, but something I've noticed. Am I alone in that??

    I agree. The rarer an item is, the more attention and props will be given by members.

    Very true.

    Like I said, I'm not complaining as I enjoy the thread here as much today as a year ago, just a noted difference.

    39...and I would even say on the small side, at that. I couldn't get my foot inside the shoe and I'm normally a 40-41. Definitely men's, just....small.
