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,

    Before I started thrifting clothing, I donated a pretty old Hawaiian shirt that was made of that heavily textured "bark cloth" kind of material...wish I'd kept it, but I quit wearing Hawaiian shirts for a while there.

    Now, I pick them up again, but only made in Hawaii and/or featuring hula girls on them...that keeps me from buying every one of them that grabs my eye and fits. Favorites are by Reyn Spooner & RJC Ltd.

    38R, I know you think you're some kind of style god and you aren't interested in anybody's opinions on your clothing, but that Emporio Armani is awful and you shouldn't wear it.

    you must reeeeeeeeaallly want to give opinions. meh, keep em. save them for somebody who wants to hear them if it stresses you out so much.

    Dated 3-button style, low-quality Emporio Armani line, weird elastic cuffs, puffy patch pockets, and on and on.

    Recent Zegna su misura flat front cashmere/cotton small wale cords in sand color. Some lining nastiness, but dirt cheap (think less than a Dunkin Donuts coffee) enough that I don't care whether soaking it ruins them. Tagged 38 short if someone wants to take them off my hands before I go all mad scientist.

    (pics later)

    Also picked up a bunch of 360 games for $1 each. Who knows if I'll have time for them but thought they might be fun to have.
