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.

    Cheers,

    ARRRGGGGHH I hate when I don't use my eBay app to check prices [​IMG]. Lucky these were $8 each and the brown one fits me. The other 42R (Cheap for the right person) can eventually go on eBay as a cheap auction to hopefully get eyes on the rest of my stuff (if I ever get around to listing anything).

    On the second one you're better off getting your 8$ back if you can.

    Wow! That is some amazing luck. I know the one (and only) store that the boutique gets their stuff from so I know where to go looking for a match and still have never had luck finding an orphan piece at that store or visa versa.



    Yup. 1979-1983

    That's the best thing about having low expectations, it rocks when it gets a lot better! I'm totally stoked for you, dude. :slayer:

    three more ties

    [​IMG]

    also left behind a few harold powell ties that felt pretty nice, a hickey freeman collection tie (I have another one that's been sitting on ebay for weeks with no watchers), a nice talbott paisley tie, a talbott BOC and a pair of lightly-worn park avenues in 6.5C that they wanted $100 for.

    First off, you guys are awesome! Some great finds lately. I just finished the Texas Bar Exam yesterday and reading this thread was one of the things that got my through all those long and painful days and nights of studying. Thank you all!!! Today I finally was able to go out into the field again. Felt great!! Got some NWT Uniqlo and Ralph Lauren sweaters, and also got a very nice Brooks Brothers wool pea coat (not really sure what it's called, it might be a trench coat but I'm not quite sure of the correct term). At my third and final stop, I popped my Kiton cherry!!! Have only been at this since March!!

    Best part, it was only $1.50!!!!
