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.

    This is a first for me. Robert Talbott Seven Fold 7 out of 40. I was very excited when I found this. This thing is awesome, great feel, heavy, and the design and colors really pop.

    Robert Talbott Estate. I remember Nat saying that on the shirts the person who made it often signs it. Does this only apply for shirts? I couldn't find it on the tie.

    Pretty sure it's only the shirts that they sign, but maybe if you take the tie apart you can find a signature in there somewhere...[​IMG]

    I thought maybe it didnt have a signature because it was made for Hunt club. I'd take it apart but I'm not sure my stitching skills would allow me to put it back together. Nothing a little duct tape and staples couldn't fix though.

    One of my favorite finds. I don't really know (or care) what the value is but, if someone could help me date it I would appreciate it.

    I love those shoes! I have this weird obsession with suede shoes; I just realized it when I packed them up for the winter...4 pairs of shoes that I can only wear for about 4 months of the year. I know it's been covered many times how to use "the method" to clean shirts; but is there a method for cleaning suede shoes? Saphir has a kit out, but at $130 + shipping + duties, there has to be an alternative.
    Very good pickup! Expect to get at least 1/3 of retail on this watch minimum. G-Shock are very collectible and have die hard fans. If it's a limited run edition; all the better. I picked up one recently and it sold within a day with BIN.

    Get yourself a suede eraser and brush. Works quite well, for under $10

    :slayer: Great haul but these are my two favorite pieces.

    Yeah, I'm pretty sure it's just the shirts that are signed. But wait....what? Hunt Club!? Don't they make the garbage that fools us with the RLPL look-a-like label?

    Holy moly! I thought Hunt Club was just some Canadian crapola substandard label!
