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 have a thrift store bucket list :)

    Recently I found a Marinella tie. Others were a Charvet shirt, etc. I would like to find a really nice attache, that eludes me. A Rowenta was definitely on that, just tested it thoroughly and ran a bit of white vinegar thru it. Works great.

    I find cashmere for under 5 bucks 99.9% of the time. I rarely pass a 100% cashmere anything for less than a Big Mac.


    This is the quintessential fall jacket. About a 42.


    LOL Im not afraid to try new things, thats for sure.


    Great news, thank you!

    What's the verdict on Caporicci shoes? Mostly what I see on Ebay are exotics, these are just plain leather but seem to be well made

    I thought this was probably a good pickup for Halloween time, I had no clue that Coogi sweaters were hundred dollar bills all day

    I think I see Cthulhu in the design of that sweater. Maybe it would be good to wear to meetings, to drive the other attendees mad.

    My wife gave me the stink eye when I brought a hideous cardigan home, she was OK with it when it sold for 20x what I paid.
    Edited to add: put Biggie and Cosby in your ebay subject line (though the Cos actually never wore Coogi on the Cosby Show; if you ever want to read too much about Cosby Sweaters, this link can help you with that).

    What were you planning to go for Halloween as? Biggie?

    Really? This just kind of looks to me like every other shirt, ever.

    Nice Billy Reid, though. :slayer:

    In other news, no takers on the vintage POWER MAN comics (for shame!) and FURTHER WHEDON TALK -- it looks like, going forward, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will not include the heli-carrier or Maria Hill -- a.k.a. S.H.I.E.L.D.S.' only defining characteristics. WTF, man! :censored:

    Shoot they do flip well, don't they? Left one a few weeks ago because it was horrendous. Was semi-worn too though, so I'll hang my hat on that.

    I hear that. My employer is in the middle of fiscal year end close. 14+ hour days trying to get financial statements in order.


    Aw, there are other characteristics of Shield... I can't think of any, but there must be some...
