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,

    Man, I got a pair of Alan Mcafees from a member of AAAC and they are hands down my favorite pair of shoes. Great find!

    See....you're already broke if you're thinking of initial cost of ownership only.

    factor in trips to disney, 27 iPods/iphones, $150000 in texting charges, wrecked cars, broken laptops, 100 pair of true religion jeans, tuition, wedding, downpayment, occasional bail out........all the while facing a facade of practiced indifference..........


    you're starting to talk Ferrari money here..........

    Only one find* today, but I'm not complaining. It's nice to walk up to a tie rack and say to yourself, "I bet that's a Hermes" and you're correct. :slayer:

    One stop, one find: Vintage Hilditch & Key double sided scarf, silk and cashwool. I think I'm gonna keep it. Is it particularly valuable/desirable? Not much on eBay from what I can see. I'm familiar with H&K, I know they're quality.

    Awesome. Not sure on the flippability value but I would certainly urge you to keep it for yourself given the badassness.

    Checked out the brand Baron Wells and took advantage of the clearance of stock they are having, today is 90% off. Advised you size up... Anyway, I kopped 3 pairs of 5 pocket pants for the ridiculous price below. Felt this was worth of bragging for NYC made garments.
