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 see that tweed has arrived - that suitcase is the bees knees! If I only had a vintage Jaguar XKE in green or pale yellow, I would have to buy that suitcase to go with it. Alas, I do not...

    Hate to bring drama to threads but I recently sold stevenkmason a suit (44XL BBGF) through the forums for at cost + shipping since he's such a large size. He offered to pay me as I shipped the item but I wanted to make sure he liked his suit first so asked him to wait upon receipt of item and it passes his inspection and such. It arrived on the 18th and I attempted to contact him a few times via PM but so far I haven't heard back. Didn't receive the PayPal either. He might just be busy or something but his history shows him logging into the forums every once in a while. Just a heads up till things get cleared up.

    So you're saying this to warn others of the perils of sending something to a stranger on the internet without first collecting payment?

    After all of the talk of finding cash in thrifted clothing, I found a bulge in a pair of BB pants I picked up.

    I just threw up a little in my mouth and thought no one would do that... Then I remember all the guys who like to post cheap jeans or underwear on eBay with their junk showing and shirtless. I guess there could be some dude who donates pants with a handkerchief filled with bodily fluids for his kicks.

    Just sent payment. Sorry for the delay man, I've had some bad personal problems this week while starting a new job. So it's been rough. My apologies. The suit is great. Once it comes back from the tailor I'll post a thrift fit along with a couple other finds.


    Thanks for the support homie.

    Heheh. I swear I have seen some good prices on like used tube socks and undies. Have actually contemplated listing some on my alternate account. Just can't seem to cross that line:
    I have worked out the basic description:

    "Pre-enjoyed all cotton briefs. Fabric has light wear from ball dangle, but not worn through yet. Most post-coital dribble has been washed clean. Although we try our best, there may be hairs that have worked there way into the weave. Happy bidding"

    Hey! No problem. Like I said you seemed like an awesome dude I didn't expect problems just threw a caution tale out. Sorry to hear about your problems and I'm stoked the suit worked out for you.
