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,

    I've found one bathrobe (requisitioned by a then-girlfriend I haven't seen in many years), several sport coats and many scarves, about half of which had moth holes. I did manage to flip a NWT woman's coat once for a few, but only a few, bucks. Never found a blanket or blanket coat, but I have seen them and they are mondo cool.

    Today's haul.

    Turn the store upside down looking for the pants, but based on the tag color this had been there 2 weeks.

    2 Pair of Shells, kinda rough no idea on the maker. Both soles are stamped "Royal Oak" but I could find anything on them. Is that just a sole brand?

    Great haul. Zegna is nice.
    Royal oak is probably resole. Take a pic of the sidewall inside the shoe, where the writing is.
