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 passed on one of these yesterday since it was a medium and wrapped around me, completely covering the right pocket. It was 4 bucks and appeared to need some extra laundering on the lapels and the neck hook had to be reattached on one side. Otherwise, it was big, fluffy and warm and the belt was still there. I should have copped anyhow, yes?

    This is one of those things if you bought it for personal use....who cares who it's made by. You can wear it a couple times and redonate it. If you bought it to sell....ya you're hosed.

    Got it! Full price of $4 instead of yesterday's deal at $3. :plain: It's in the washer right now to see if I can restore it to full fluffy glory. Silk sounds nice but I need something for warmth. The house stays around 68 degrees through the Winter.
    :freeze:

    Oh well, I was scanning the women's outerwear for misplaced men's jackets and found two barn coats for SWMBO, an all brown Lands End and a seafoam green LL Bean. I texted pics to her and she liked them so I got to use the household account instead of my thrift funds so I suppose that's a score as well!
    :nodding:



    I'll post it in the other thread as well but to me, this will always be the place for them.

    ^ Those Bijan suits need to be first in your order or posting :happy:

    I believe (someone correct m) that they're fairly recent. At the very least, worthwhile.

    As far as the Marlboro and Sisley, I assume you're in Europe...I always leave it. The quality leaves a lot to be desired. My wife likes some of Sisley's womenswear, but she'd doubtfully pay full-price.
