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 overheard the Goodwill clerk talking quite loudly about ...

    [​IMG]

    ...shirts selling on some website (not this one) for $200 and they all had a good laugh about it. After they moved on, I sauntered over to the rack to have a peek for myself, having never seen a live R.G. skeet rag.

    Did not kopulate.

    Weird pick up today - never seen this before.

    A tie made by Neiman Marcus for the U.S. Senate - and what's better is I could totally wear this pattern... :)

    I have a pair of Gap Selvage that are about 3 yrs old, purchased NOS from ebay for 25$ with tags. I think the quality isnt the best for selvage, but find myself wearing them probably the most only because the fit is great off the rack.
    My Gap Selvage are 28 inseam and I run about 5'11 on a good day. Its hard to judge inseam by height sometimes.
    One small cuff and they still have a full break. Granted I have other selvage that are between 32-34, for the exact reasons of cuffing them a bit more.

    Dounds similar to the Abercrombie shirts in the early 2000s with clever phrases that were incredibly racist. The one that sticks in my memory is the "wong brothers laundromat -- two wongs can make it white" theme. Wow did that generate a world of hurt.
