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.

    Ah! I wasn't trying to be a dick. Your comment made me laugh really hard. I enjoy the good-natured humor of this thread. So different than most forums.

    Also, if anyone DOES thrift creepers, I'm a US 8.5-9 [​IMG]

    The pair I have are TUK (found on sale) and they're comfortable, but awful quality. Hoping to find some Underground or George Cox at some point.

    I'm here. Let me tell you how difficult it is to hunt through racks and racks of suits and jacks with a bottle of Miller High Life in your hand. That was by far the coolest combination of things I have done in a while.

    Not as overly eventful for my fellow thrifters as I had hoped. Did score a pair of minty fresh Cole Haan Nubuck wingtips for Brianpore.

    I did however manage to spend a reasonable amount on the following:

    A stash of Aldens (5 pairs),
    Allen Edmonds Park Ave (2 pairs),
    10 mint Vineyard Vines neck ties,
    1 mint Vineyard Vines bow tie
    2 sets of Brooks Brothers Oxford Cloth braces
    A pair of sand dollar cuff links, which I just discovered are sterling silver with my magnifying glass.

    Pics may have to come on another day. I have suddenly found myself under the listing gun, once again this week.

    Suits and Jackets were still way overpriced, even at 50%. I'd rather have thrifted in Midtown NYC. If he can keep enough business to stay open another year, I will keep working on him. He seems like the kind of guy who would make better deals for regulars.

    My tumblr is a mix of thrifted things and not so thrifted things. Not to mention a lot of stuff I don't have anymore :hide:
