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,

    That is some bull-ass-shit.
    I had a Barbera tie taken from my cart when I was in a Goodwill once, but it had a big snag anyway. Still, curse those people. Sorry, man.

    Man, that sucks... I always dread leaving my cart with anything in it for even a minute going to the restroom. I haven't had anything snatched, but it's only a matter of time, I suppose.

    WWKD? (What would Klobber do?)

    He would just shit his pants and keep on shopping! Thrifting Rule #72 - Never leave the cart unattended!

    Seriously though, that is BS man.

    ...or just take the cart in with you. I've done that at thrifts... The employees don't always care too much.

    I'm pretty sure all the ones I frequent do (certainly all of the GW, Savers and SA stores. Most of the independent stores too... I think it's "almost" a law in California to have restrooms available to customers. It definitely is for restaurants: most other places seem to follow suit.

    Picked up an Oxxford orphan and a pair of Oxxford trousers today at lunch. Also, apparently our CEO left a bunch of shirts in the kitchen again (he does this every now and then for people to take) and his secretary gave them to me(unavailable):

    6x Faconnable - a few with double button collars and MOPs
    1 RLPL with crazy thick MOPs

    Nat, what you did pull today is quite awesome. Sucks that someone snaked the suit from you. I bought and stashed the Gucci croc loafers immediately knowing that someone might literally fight me for them.

    One of life's little pleasures #426: Dropping off a stack of clothes at the tailors that have been sitting in your living room for 2-8 months. Bonus points if its mostly seersucker, linen and madras. :slayer: Fit pics next week.
