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.

    Probably anything with a Macy's or Lord & Taylor tag is a pass. Look for tags with Saks Fifth Avenue, Barneys, Bergdorf Goodman, and the like.

    Haha, that's what I thought.

    I'd been keeping an eye out for barney's, Saks , etc. Hence the passing on that guy. If it fit better, I might have kept it for myself.

    I was surprised about the benetton though. I thought it would have been better regarded for their italian stuff. Atleast j.crew level if not better.

    @barrelntrigger , how do you feel about Nudie flannel shirts? Are they desired? I picked one up recently on instinct, but I realized that I've only ever heard their jeans mentioned.

    HAhahaha

    Sorry gonna be an asshole and laugh at this.

    Pick em up, they're nice.



    Also, re:poly ties. They're actually a trad staple, and some quite highly valued on AAAC. I forget which ones. but the trad heads here can extrapolate.

    I don't think I've seen them quite often on eBay, just their jeans. They usually go from $150 and up in retail so yes, I would pick them up. But I'm not a big fan of their jeans.
