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,

    What kind of god allows NWT Kiton 7 folds to have really obvious thread pulls right on the front blade? Not that I liked the pattern, but I think I'm going to try and be more generous proxying stuff I find on here.

    Also, if somebody wants Marks and Spencer-era BB OCBDs in like 14.5s and 18s, my Marshalls has them, and it's apparently not the only one.

    Best I can do on short notice (and sorry for the rubbish photos). Buffalo plaid wool jac shirt in my size by Johnson Woolen Mills, made with pride in Johnson, VT since 1842! Jackets like this are normally quite roomy, but this fits like a dream. A real treat for a New England boy like myself.

    Not much to go on, but I vote fake simple because the finish work and tolerance of the bracelet looks to be sub-standard. Check the magnification window over the date: it should be perfectly centered. Also compare magnification power--there are examples on the web. If the magnifier is glued on, 100% fake.

    Over the past two weeks I drove to South Carolina from Texas stopping in Birmingham and ATL (And LA to gamble but that's another story) and visited Charleston and Charlotte. My car, a camry, is literally packed so tight I got pulled over for blocked rear-view vision and had jam my trunk pretty hard to get moving. It ranges from the insanely awesome, to the mediocre at insanely awesome prices (literally talking 1-2 dollars for HF/Old Burberry/Canali/etc). I have to go back to work tomorrow and I have no energy to unload the damn car.
