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,

    My first pair of thrifted shells. Nowhere near NOS, but they are Bostonian saddles. Like eazy said, shell is damn near magical in coming back to life.

    Grabbed a shoe shine box full of brushes, PRL shirt, D&G shirt, NWT Robert Graham, another RG and a few other more mundane pieces this past week.

    Of particular note:

    Guessing 80's from the label. Far from perfect condition, but couldn't pass on the first W&G piece I came across.

    Nothing crazy today...

    Did find a NWOT Metolius chalk bag (any other climbers out there?). Also two ties that seem nice (Pierre Balmain and Italo Feretti?).

    Any suggestions on the age of these? I don't do dress shoes much but found these and really liked the quality.
    Bostonian Wing tips from 60's?

    thanks jkidd! I'm just starting to get into vintage dress shoes, it is amazing the difference in "older" models vs. the new stuff.

    Not sure I ever properly bragged about these. I'm so in love with the "new shoe" look of the sole, I've refused to wear these anywhere but carpeted surfaces. Because when I wore my C&J boots and Barrie LTD shells for the first time and scuffed the soles to look like normal mortal shoes, I damn near cried. True stories all. [​IMG]

    +1. No, literally. Because that's 13 words.

    ^^^ I purchased a vintage English-made leather suitcase that I use regularly for travel. It's the perfect size for ANY overhead compartment from the big jets to the regional jets and has been with me to 4 of the 7 continents.
