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.

    Cross-post from the thread I started. If any of you shop at Frieschskys eBay store this article might interest you. Especially the quote below! I think it only works on their new website

    As an added bonus to all Noble Custom readers, you’ll get an extra 10% off any purchase from Freischskys.com through December 31st when you use the discount code – noblecustom10

    Question for the thread, I have seen a lot of Hawaiian shirts lately and would like to pick up a few. I don't, however, have any idea on what brands I should be looking for? Are there some that are better than others? Some to avoid?

    Alfred Shaheen is a great one to look for. But rare and hard to find. Vintage Reyn Spooner is also good.

    Got a ridiculous job offer that required me moving here. Thrifting is bottom of the barrel compared to Portland.

    Nice! That is, with regards to the shoes and the bike. I wish I had time/space to restore my '72 CB750. It's been on blocks for a few years now. You hang out with any other vintage bike guys in PDX? I know a guy ...

    So I'm having a pretty great day. I would've been happy with these NSW chinos I'm already rocking, but then I found some sweet titties LVC 501s. I figured today was done but then I found this guy

    +1, always grab Etro unless it's very boring (90% of the time it won't be) or very beat up.
    Beautiful! Nice find! I love Trickers.

    Wish I had known you were a old Honda guy. I had a CB350 that I rode everywhere in Oregon, but I had a love/hate relationship with the carbs.
