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.

    I'm on my way here...

    http://www.wghsea.org/farmers-flea-market

    450 tables. It's usually pretty ridiculous. I probably won't find any menswear...except maybe some cufflinks. If there is anything also anyone wants me to look for, just PM me. You never know what I will find.

    Emma and I were at a boot sale this morning and after I'd only managed a vintage Cecil Gee, pure cashmere, fly-front overcoat, she phoned me and told me she'd found me 4 blazers for £12 total. I met her, handed over the £12 and it walked off with 1 x Burberrys' navy melton DB, 2 x Aquascutum navy worsted DBs and 1 x Aquascutum navy linen DB. It was only when I was putting them away in the car that I discovered they were all ladies' blazers

    She still has absolutely no idea of gender buttoning gggggrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr :brick:

    And the best find of the day, which was actually found by my wife. She comes up to me holding this nice wool overcoat and says "Hey, here's a nice coat!" I look over and say "Oh cool - nice..." and didn't really think anything of it. She then flips it open and says "Did you see who made it?!". :D :slayer: Man, I love her!

    Tagged an XXXL for some strange reason but fits like a 44-46.

    I'm doing a vicarious thrift haul brag...Is that allowed? It's allowed, isn't it? [​IMG]

    Any who, I know a guy that knows a guy who recent hauled an Iron Heart vest (not sure what to call it...It looks like a cotton down jacket...), a Belstaff cotton wax vest, a Nom De Grerre trench coat or something (cuz he didn't send me a pic of what it is but who gives a shit, it's bad ass [​IMG]), a Filson suede leather vest, An Apolis Global Citizen something (see previous statement), a Taylor Stitch utility shirt, a 3sixteen jacket of some sort, and something else that I can't think of it atm...

    But I only have photos of these because I don't know how to download the other photos from my phone...[​IMG]

    Anyhow, I'm soooooooooooooo jelly! [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    I don't have anything to show for because I haven't hauled in over two month...BUT I'm in the process of proxing something bad ass from a homie...[​IMG]

    Will update!
