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,

    Wish I were spending $$ -- Found a few things yesterday. All available unless otherwise noted. Trafalgar embossed croc. Size 36. [​IMG] Trafalgar lizard. I'm so on the fence about whether to keep this. [​IMG] Ties. Sulka (damaged) [​IMG] Fendi [​IMG] Gucci [​IMG] Ben Silver [​IMG] Turnbull [​IMG] RL Black label knit silk, like 1.5" wide. Who the hell is small enough to wear this?? [​IMG] I rarely buy Behar anymore. Except when they're awesome. [​IMG] Corneliani wool/silk, keeping. [​IMG] Ugly-ass Talbott BOC x2 [​IMG][​IMG] Dunhill shirts x 4 [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] Dunhill by Zegna linen field check SC. Needs some TLC and likely some shoulder pad removal, but badass. [​IMG] J Crew 100% linen suit, sample (and sized accordingly). Pissed this isn't my size. [​IMG] And then this. (color is olive green and it's a suit) [​IMG]

    Also a pair of Church's Custom Grade wingtips in black that need a really, really good rehab and polish, and a custom shirt by some maker I don't recall in red micro windowpane that fits me.

    Yo, @Nataku, you want a women's vintage Sierra Designs puffy jacket? It's green, possibly missing a snap-on hood, plastic zipper's missing the thing you pull on....

    The label is neat. :D

    I believe so.


    Also, big ups to @jebarne for just being a super nice dude, @GMMcL for letting me jaw his ear off about stains and imparting his knowledge, and @1ofTheCoolKids for his second hand stain knowledge (by which I mean I got his knowledge second hand) and digging through his stunning pants collection looking for something that might fit me.

    90% cotton and 10% nylon. Yuck. But I bet they'd do well on the REDACTED.

    Wow! You should cop every time!!!

    Yes...That's not the YSL he was looking for...

    Calee?! Shit, these are rarer than real tits in a stripper joint! I would like to own a pair of Fullcount and Warehouse. Shit, a pair of Joe McCoy would be cool, too...But damn, do I really need so many pairs of jawnz??? YES, I DO!!! Oh wait, any Buzzricksons???!!!!!

    Bro, I've told you, charge $20-$30 for proxy fee if trades don't work out. Times are hard. But I'm willing to bet there are folks who would be happy to a pay a small proxy fee for some grail items!

    CB?

    Are we the same size in pants now?

    I guess that should make me feel better, but it doesn't.
