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.

    Heh, its just a company (possibly out of business) that was located just south of Minneapolis/St. Paul.

    I just chuckled a bit when I saw it.

    The stuff is decent quality but doesn't have a ton of resale value.

    Sadly they don't get a ton of love on the bay but are great for personal use. That sweater was made a couple hours from me. Sadly they don't make sweaters anymore (at least I don't think they do), but they still make these awesome mittens. My wife and I have several pairs. http://www.mnmittens.com/
    He's a super cool guy and very generous. Hope to meet up with him whenever I make it to SF.

    Stopped by the Pack N Mail and the local thrift is literally 2 doors down so I always stop by after I drop off my weekly packages. Today was good. Popped my Loro Piana cherry.

    Did you cop? Yeah, TS has a MTM program that uses Southwick. I wonder if the quality is any different.

    2 pages back. His rule is don't spend more the $10 on shoes.

    I don't follow it, but if you do, there's almost no downside.

    I've always loved Bally shoes. I've worn them since the 80s, when I could first afford them. Always had the softest leather but because of this they always wore out quickly. Ultra thin soles. I still have a couple of pair but I added sole savers as soon as I bought them.

    They're not as popular here in the states as some of the other fashion brands.

    I spent $15 on these because as someone else pointed out...they look barely worn. Ah well, live and learn. They definitely do have the softest leather I've touched on a shoe. It feels amazing to the touch. Appreciate the response and thanks again for the Clarks :)

    I would have bought up to about $25, but over $20, I would have fretted about it. And that's because I like the shoes. At $15, I wouldn't have worried. You'll do fine.

    I like what I've seen as far as their tweed offerings are concerned. I run across a lot of shirts that are just terrible though lol. I wonder who makes their Made in England tweeds

    The coat I picked up is made in Ireland. The real deal.
