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.

    A few things from today...

    Paid considerably for most of it unfortunately, therefore unavailable.

    A first for me:

    Two pairs of B&L Ray Bans. The first is a normal pair of aviators, the second has prescription lenses. One lens is the thickest lens I've ever seen, the owner must have literally been blind in one eye.

    I got these from a professional flipper. I'll post a better picture of the label on the polo, I'm not 100% convinced on it.:

    WTF LA?! Wow. Remember the time DM7 thrifted a hundred Turnbull and Asser shirts?

    Question for the LA guys: Are any of the thrifts brand aware and charge a bunch for the good stuff? Do they have higher-priced Goodwill boutiques they pull certain brands for? Or is everything standard thrift prices?

    Most are brand aware up to a point. Like Evil Abed said, sometimes the same shirt would have 2 different prices. PRL or J crew would sometimes be the same price as Attolini etc

    Wow thanks everyone for your generosity in wanting to give to my friends memorial fund. This has brought tears to my eyes, but warmth to my heart. May you all be blessed 10 fold. Or 7-fold if you prefer.

    Whut up Ya'll

    THANK YOU ALL FOR THE KIND WORDS AND PRAISE ON MY FINDS!

    Even though its only been a day since my last fix, I had to go out again this morning.

    I thought luck was on my side when I came across 3 Ralph Lauren Purple Label Keatons...but upon further inspection, the pits were greasy and the collars had light-to moderate yellowing.

    Since I dont have a surefire way of removing the stains, I left them.

    What do you guys think? Good choice or Bad?

    Bad choice. :(

    An Oxiclean and white vinegar soak can do wonders.

    Early morning shoot kept me away from here and that shop from yesterday. Got the play by play from randy as he pillaged. Now en route to attempt a second strike to clean up after him.

    Hmm. damn. I doubt they'll be there tomorrow, but I might try to hit it up and see if I could swoop them.

    Where is the recipe and process for that again?

    or if you could PM it to me that would be awesome, im sure everyone here is sick of hearing or seeing it posted
