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,

    One more interesting piece: 1970s Ontario Provincial Police military-style parka. With signature buttons, leather-trimmed pockets and cuffs, and faux fur around the neck:

    Marc: True, that's grenadine -- garza grossa, if my eyes don't deceive. But not all ties have lining. Indeed, one of the more preferred options for bespoke grenadines, like those made by Sam Hober, is to get at least the tip unlined with hand rolled edges.

    GMMcl: :foo:by like an hour. :fu: 200+ near mint new wave LPs and 20+ singles. By the time I got to the records there were two guys with 50-110 LP stacks next to them. Gah. I picked up some scraps.....

    I'm a big fan of Styx and honestly liked Dennis' solo work in the late 80's.

    Spoo: Both the Y3 and Polo robes are amazing! Well done!

    Label I'd never seen before - did a little reading up - always interesting the things you can learn, that you never expected to, as a result of buying clothing.

    First a big THANK-YOU to futuremyth and his wife who I met up with for a quick bite this afternoon since they were in town visiting family for Christmas. Both of them are very nice and even treated me to a share of the most beefalicious nachos I've ever seen or tasted!

    I found a bunch of stuff this past weekend and haven't had time to photograph anything but did want to post this baby. NWT Pringle of Scotland knit coat. Heavy as all get out and retailed last AW at around $1600 USD.

    Found 3 old T&A ties today that are wide as a mofo (4.5"). Can anyone date this label?

    Fits like a 38r rather then 40
    Otherwise would have been great
    Can't flex if it's on :(
