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,

    Urgh, savers has an IWC watch in the case, but tagged at $199 too expensive for me to take a chance on it being real

    Some recent finds. Most of this is not available unless someone out there REALLY wants it. There is a lot more that I need to post. I should be able to post quicker and more frequently since I am now using a macbook instead of an iPad. Enjoy the rest of your Sunday everyone.

    Most places, in my experience, will refund counterfeit merchandise fyi (since its illegal to sell, even for a thrift store).

    EvolutionofRW I have that same Brooks Brothers varsity jacket in navy and the quality is superb. I should make it available here since it never fit me properly. Such a nice staple piece. Those Prada shoes look interesting.

    Passed on a pal zileri, and escada tie.
    Pick up a robert Talbott Boc, and a recent zegna tie.
    Also started to pick up fleeces, found an amazing Polo Rl, full zip Navy fleece with a neck latch, in a small. Pics up later

    Thanks. I will switch to manual and play with the shutter speed. And since I thought that's what ISO was, I will need to do a little playing/reading.

    Now that's how you stitch on a button. Damn, Sulka. '98, too. Maybe if they'd used less thread, they could have kept it going another month or two.

    Other than that ridiculous button tear, the shirt was pristine. No wear at the collar or cuffs, looks like it had been worn a couple times and pressed. Either the original owner (or more likely goodwill) pulled on the shirt so hard the ridiculously well-stitched button tore the shirt halfway down the front. :(
