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.

    There's really only one Prada out there (and of course a bunch of fake stuff). That looks real to me.

    I say if you can swing the extra $10k a year in insurance and upkeep, buy it! Me, still looking for a nice MGB GT hatch or VW Type 3 wagon.

    Despo is a regular judge on the tailoring and fit thread. Man, if you think our thread is harsh, shhhesshhhh! That read constantly eats up new/old members!

    http://www.styleforum.net/t/265924/the-tailors-thread-fit-feedback-and-alteration-suggestions

    Douuuuhhhhh! I totally misinterpret that post!!! [​IMG]
    Dude, I'm sorry man, I've totally misread that post. [​IMG] For the record, I wasn't upset upon read/seeing that. [​IMG] [​IMG] I actually though it was a great burn meme!!! I'm gonna totally steal it and use it when I'm feeling juvenile and wants to call someone the "G" word! [​IMG] Well, I guess I have to photoshop another pair of links in that pic...[​IMG]

    Again, sorry man, I've been on pain meds for the past 2 days for a work related injury. The good news is that I get a few days off! Maybe I'll do some light weight thrift?! [​IMG]

    HOLY SHIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Anyone want a J Crew peacoat? Size L. Charcoal Gray. Issues with the lining. Some wear on the bottom right arm. Cost + shipping.

    Coat does not have buttons so you'll have to pay the $5 at a fabric store. Also, I'm not going to measure as I don't have time.

    I'm jumping in to this a little late, but since car share turned into bike share for a few posts, here are my bikes. Both of them are GTs:

    Bought the frame off ebay and pieced the rest together from sales on bike forums. Paid for the chroming by cashing in a giant penny jar I'd been tossing pennies into for a decade.

    Originally bought this for riding around on a backlot. Bought whole on ebay:

    As my mother used to say "only a fool takes offense where none is intended"... So I wrote it off to me not being clear enough in my post. Just saw those cuff links and thought you might want them so I kopped them. I do appreciate the explanation though.
