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,

    I'm betting we crossed paths today if you were thrifting in 'Nati. Fairfield? I hit Valley and GW, walked out empty handed at both.

    Quote:Yup! Just those two! Between 4-5. Wish that wool/cashmere Hickey Freeman at GW wasn't full of holes, but like I said, that's one of my bad luck brands, so naturally it had to be.

    I was there around 6-7. I eyed the Hickey, but was so bummed after striking out at Valley I didn't bother checking it out. Sport coat selection has really declined there lately.

    For realz. I was there only a few days a couple years ago on various business trips. Solid, solid hauls each time. Too consistently to be mere luck.

    I feel like both of those stores have declines in the past year. Though, that makes 4 pairs of shells between the Fairfield and Dayton Valley stores.

    Nice! Shh... People think I'm joking when I mention how many stores are nearby. I've only hit one store since I got back. Trying to process my backstock.

    Been slammed at work the last week or so.

    I did manage to pick this up at an estate sale after work today. I'm pretty psyched- I've been after something that could handle light leatherwork/canvas.

    Hey guys,

    Could anyone help me date these?
    I picked up this pair of vintage-y Wranglers on half off day. At least the zipper makes me think they could be 70's-era, but I'm guessing the tag could put them more in 80's. Thoughts?

    Edit: HAH! I posted image #100000. And I did some more googling. Seems like they could be even more current. Going to try my luck on the Swedish variety of that place, since Wranglers cost $100 here.
