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.

    That is a strippers tit man. Sorry. Cant believe you had the restraint to throw your haul back to the sea. Probably a good call, but I get "find high". Its like beer goggles.
    But you added OMG, which made all the difference.

    Re: the haircut stuff:

    My hair is probably more similar to green_machine's in cut, but with more shape. I also brush it differently (and have thick-set wavy hair which is on the oily side). That's not the point. I think it's vital to find more of an independent old school barber kind of place than either a salon (nice, I'm sure, but do you get change from a $20?) and a HyperCutz kind of place.

    No doubt but I could only afford to do it thirteen dollars at a time! :lol:

    Yesterday's Finds. (Hm. That reminds me of this song.)

    Ties: two PRL, one Richel, and my first Hermes!
    [​IMG] [​IMG]
    Not sure about the Hermes, as it has fewer colors than the others I've seen here. Can anyone confirm real or fake?

    More Black Watch! My size, but shows a bit of the back of my shirt, above my jeans, so I'm on the fence about keeping it.
    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    And I can't believe the deal I got on this. Fits great, and I really like it, but I need cash more than I need another jacket, so I think I'll list it with a high opening bid, and if no one bids, I won't be sad.

    yes. [​IMG] they are, imho the best levi's (well, the workwear style ones) jap made straight cuts.- wear them for a week and tell me you don't love them.
    some jeans from that period are still wearable. not a huge flip, but they are wanted for keeping. if they were 31's i want. also want silver tabs.
    <<see the guy in my avatar? picture him wearing them jeans. something for everybody, right?

    Great stuff, Eazy!

    Exec at work just gave me a bunch of suits and some shirts/pants for free. He was going to dump them at GW but heard that I sold clothes on eBay. Bunch of dual vent hickey freeman, some staple patterns and loro piana fabric. One is actually very nice. Couple canali suits, all dual vent. Brioni pants.

    I think you addressed everything in the other thread, but i also think it looks too big in the shoulders. It looks like the seams don't sit on top of your shoulders, but rather on the side.


    40-42R 34/31? :D

    If your SF-approved clothes aren't appealing to the ladies, you're wearing the wrong SF-approved clothes for you.

    +1 looks kind of like an Arnold Brant blazer I bought and sold (for very little) a while back.
