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.

    Sorry I thought you were asking about a jacket. The small pocket on pants was popular in the 1980's and was called a coin or watch pocket.

    Picked this suit up on the cheap but this is different from my items from Isaia -- not sure I've seen this label before. Is it Gianluca's 3rd cousin or just ancient?

    Thx, Spoo! :slayer::slayer::slayer:


    P.S. When are we going to hear the Spoo/Versace origin tale? (I imagine it's a bit like Kaiser Sose, but with less killing).

    Yeah, would be cool though to get something epic out of it.
    I saw that the other day and its the dumbest shit Ive ever seen. The Game's leather wrapped 458 is almost as dumb, but looks a lot better.

    My IG is bike/car/beer/music centric. I often don't post clothes because my most avid followers are bike geeks, not clothing hounds. If I posted too many fit pics, they would probably unfollow me.

    @itsacosbysweater if you'd like to check it out.

    I would guess UK. Do you have any insole measurements?

    That's the insole? or the outsole? Seems way too long to be the insole. Did they stamp a width on the sole by chance?

    Sorry this is the outsole. Is there a web site for outsole to size (UK/US)?

    I don't see how there could be, the outsole size would vary too much by maker.
