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,

    TERRIBLY JEALOUS! It is incredibly rare to find any stuff in my size (48-50) around here and then the QUALITY! Jeepers creepers! If I was there I would probably have bought of most of it! Awesome find!

    Use. Spoilers.

    --

    I don't want to devolve into forbidden flip talk or :spam: the thread, but I will just say that at least one of you (I'm looking at you, Staxringold) made out like bandits in round 1 of the ongoing inventory purge on my and my wife's Ebay accounts.

    I keep telling you people: I have stuff to trade. Get @ me.

    Glad to see you went back for seconds! Haha. Honestly if it's recent, nice and not abnormally shaped (t-rex arms, etc), then I'll buy it. Glad to hear someone else benefited from this haul too. :)

    Honestly, I'd pile all the nice orphans into a cart and once you've got a hold of them, ask the workers if there's any chance the pants for all the nice suits that recently came out might be in back somewhere. Maybe they're hanging on a rack that they're waiting to put out because the men's pants section is full and they didn't distinguish or care that they may have been part of a suit. Always worth asking in my opinion. Either way, if you can return them I'd buy the nicest orphans and just go back every couple days to see if the pants turn up. If they don't by the last returnable day, just return the jackets.

    1947 is when the zip code came out, so thinking before then?

    and indeed they are -- i have recently bought three pairs of vintage boots (two german, one british), two of which i believe are military or combat boots, and they shoud date back to the 1930s - 1950s.
    soles are worn out, but the leather is still in very good condition -- applied some dubbin and now they look much better. german craftsmanship is top notch.

    once i've brought them to a cobbler and had them resoled, they'll be real "baller" boots (genuine value as opposed to fantasy price).

    It really depended on the area. The 4 digit phone number was still in use in the Minneapolis during the early 50's. The larger metropolitan areas such as NYC, LA, etc adapted the 7 digit phone number with the area code a lot quicker than other cities.
