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,

    We thought we'd ham it up a bit and be zany so my wife decided it would be a good idea to smell his ear.

    The more interesting question (than how does he becomes fob?) is "what the hell happened to the rest of his body?"

    Thanks, GW. The Queen album was $1.55. Everything else? 77 cents each.

    I hate to think what I missed.

    I'm not sure whether to look forward to Eddie's posts or block them out of sheer rage.

    Never hurts... I found an Olympus Om-1 that way. I'm also always looking for L series lenses on Canons.

    Sorry dude but unless these have been poorly tailored, these aren't selvedge.

    Nice record finds! Surprising that the Queen was marked up but not Sgt. Peppers. Whenever I see any Beatles vinyl they always have it marked up.

    The quick stop on the way home from work produced a (unused?) green Harris Tweed, some Hermes and Arcteryx outerwear. Found in GMMcL's backyard....uh oh

    Sorry to pile on, but I'd say that jacket is probably not worth whatever you'd spend on tailoring :embar: Welcome to the thread! :D

    This is from a thrift store? Or one of the many outside sources you have in NY...

    I've heard it suggested that the headless monks (no relation to double monks :rimshot: ) took it, but that the head couldn't die. dunno.

    Getting in before the pile-on becomes excessive.

    Jeans aren't selvedge (not that it really matters), Mezlans are alright but Cole Haans look kind of like bicycle toes (shudder) and the JM loafers are awful and should be killed with fire, and the Armani jacket is old, meh quality and not worth the tailoring expense. You will find better.

    Shoe buffer makes it all worth it though.

    Ha thanks for the welcome.. lol so at least I did ok on the shoes (kinda) and the buffer lol thanks guys. Quick question though on the Armani since it's a complete set pants and jacket and fits pretty close just needs taken in on the waist you still don't think it's worth it? Can ya gimme some details I'm learning here. Also on a side note what do you guys know about Baggio suits?

    p.s. I like the loafers they remind me of oldschool creepers.. old punk rocker over here..
