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,

    Newer ones will have a greek letter on the inside of the left front. Older ones won't. Definitely post pics! If it's large, I'd be happy to trade for it. [​IMG]

    I'm not surprised by the popularity. The brand is great.

    I just felt really awkward buying a shirt clearly 5 sizes too big for me with this girl there that was clearly not interested in being there.

    Oh well. Hopefully it's still there in 3 hrs.

    If you're a 41, 42 or 43 (possibly slim 44), you're going to want to keep an eye on the trade thread. I'm mercilessly culling through my closet and about to make a bunch of things available.

    Well, depends on how hot she is. Hot = before she's bored, get the hell out of there to do something she likes. Not = thrift until you are done.

    The first few stops at thrifts with my gf, I knew she was pretty bored but was cool with it because she knew it was something I enjoyed. The other day, she told me she almost stopped by a GW on the way to her friend's house to see if they had any skeets for me to flip/any shirts I'd like. I'm keeping her.

    My girl doesn't support my thrifting life. Kind of sucks, she likes going with me on occasion, but doesn't think there's a future in it for me.

    RTC-Smart man. Just know that unlike the strip club example, conversion is possible.

    I'm not sure what 38R's talking about though. Many gay guys are obsessed with women's breasts. Maybe he just hasn't met the right ones to go with yet!

    (I wouldn't know. Never been to one of those joints)

    My wife hates shopping in general but she supports my hobby and puts up with my long stops in the store. She will just sit and read or if it's nice out, she will sit out in the car and knit/sew/. She loves that I find her amazing, super expensive clothing for peanuts. She also likes how it offsets my clothing hobby purchases and since I've been laid off, it's helped pay bills.
