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.

    Ha, pnut, but the joke was on you, 'cause those ear disc thingies are way, WAY more timeless than MC wear (like hundreds of years stretching in either direction more timeless).

    Those are slim fit??? Holy crap son you have legs as skinny as Ian. Looks good, I would be ecstatic if my sons dressed that nice. Instead they wear athletic shorts or sweat pants...

    Ahhh sorry, 22 years in the military left my legs thick so slim/skinny terms don't pass my lips when talking about jeans [​IMG]. I didn't realize there was a difference.

    Hey gents, pardon my absence. In the past two weeks I've:

    -Traveled out of town for a week long party disguised as a wedding
    -Had family over from Germany
    -Met up with the newlyweds in Key Largo after their honeymoon in Costa Rica to continue the other party

    Needless to say, haven't had much time to post or thrift. Everything here is from two days' work. :)


    Sweet Brioni. Offered to pay for square that was in the pocket, but they refused. Turns out it is also a Brioni.

    So on my way back from the Keys today, I decide to hit a couple thrifts. First one is in one of the worst areas I've ever thrifted(and I've thrifted many, many bad areas). I give every store a shot, and the following are all from that store - in the top 5 best of my single store hauls.

    Paul Stuart - recent.

    (Yes, I scoured the store for the pants, but no luck. Scoured surrounding stores as well. Still super stoked to have found it regardless.)

    There was also this LV licensed to The French Co. purse. Not exceptionally valuable, but I did alright on it.

    Nice finds on the Craft jackets... And that Patagonia is as sweet as a Tim Horton's Canadian Maple donut (sorry, I've got Canada on my mind as I plan our trip from Boston to Nova Scotia)!

    Dang, what hood are you in now? We've just moved as well, and the hills "start" about two blocks away.

    I haven't seen any deerz in the hood yet, but our cats love watching the 20 birds that seem to be on the patio at any given moment. Then there's the family of squirrels that live in the oak tree in the back yard!

    Not much, EZ tie and Saddler belt. Found a Raffaele Caruso navy suit in my size, but too worn...Kinda regret that I left a Barba shirt that fit. And I saw a Brioni shirt, but it was Brioni Bangkock

    I thought you were being sarcastic, so I decided to do the same. That thing is money!

    Who was it that was making their own pocket squares recently?

    I have an out of commission blazer with the buttons already harvested. The silk lining is a thing of beauty, and it would be a shame to waste it,
