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,

    Thought that was a known thing! Whoops, would have warned you.

    Randomore, sick finds as always.

    I've barely stepped foot in a store since my shirt haul. Decided I need to liquidate some of the older stuff before continuing to shop. That and out of thrifting monies/working on some lighting set ups.

    Skeet blankets = pure magic. Posted two on Sunday, first bid on one of them (that I thought would be a tough sell due to it being one color) was $60 (my reserve), other one that's multi colored has lots of watchers and bids slowly building, should be a decent finish. Would be happy selling skeets 24/7, not sure if my eyes could handle it though.

    Passed up a pristine, hella long schneider salzburg cashmere coat. It was like fifty bucks, I think I'm gonna go back and see if I can pick it up. At the very least I can get my money back

    Ive always wanted to rock a DB suit but since it is so uncommon I don't really feel it is appropriate. I must say, you rock it like a BAUS!

    Guess we don't know too much about Catalina here in PA. Actually, my sister who lives in San Diego didn't know either. Anyhow, I was relieved it was not actually a casino. As a devout thrifter, I absolutely hate giving my money away so easily.....and since gambling is in my blood, I usually give it all away anyway.

    I find Schneiders of Salzburg coats from time to time. Really nice stuff. Trouble is, there isn't enough name recognition so I couldn't even give them away. Both pieces I had were really nice, recent wool or wool/cashmere coats. Both went for $20 or less. Nobody even wanted them on here. I now pass unless they fit me and they're super crazy nice.

    Probably just her husband's sizes and things that interest him. When in Rome... or at least a menswear thifting forum. :D

    Thanks for the advice. I'm definitely going to pass on it.

    A few months ago I would have jumped out of my skin and picked it up on impulse, without realizing that there are probably only three people in the world who would buy it.

    When you decide to break it to everyone that these are all 50L, also take a minute to let me know where to send your shirts [​IMG]

    Dude, that is awesome. Label looks much more recent than the seven Oxxfords I found last summer, more like the two I found last week.
