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,

    HA! Near impossible on my stiff/newer denim but on a pair of soft and worn down, not too difficult!

    My wife's engagement ring was my grandmother's. She was very touched to receive a family heirloom. I was also broke at the time so I had no money at all. She doesn't like "bling" and loves vintage fashion (50's dresses, etc) so I thought it would be very fitting. She loved it and we had her wedding band fashioned to match the ring. It's all about the woman and their style.

    I'd have to disagree with that last statement, though. My wife has told me many times that she'd rather have something we both can enjoy for years to come (money for a vacation and the memories from said vacation, landscaping for the yard, etc) than a fancy ring on her finger.



    :fistbump:


    I'm not too familiar with Unbranded but with vanity sizing and all, I usually size down on my denim. I'm a true 36 but take a 34 from a lot of denim makers. Those were a bit odd though as they ran 2 sizes smaller. Glad they worked out for you!


    It's always fun chatting about this hobby in person. It also helps in time-saving because you can ask the person whether it's worth your time to sift through the shirts or pants.

    I have a tweed by them made by Zanella. That might be who made yours. Nice quality and colorways, and dual vented. Currently sitting at reasonable prices with no offers; follow link below.

    Weird. I think they were a 30 waist? Guessing that was due to the wash though.

    x100000. It's only enjoyable saying "oh, jesus..." to myself when I can say it with a smile when fueco talks about how he only drinks artisanal coffees or when 38R talks about being a pocket square expert.

    I hope this means your medical school plans do not involve surgery.

    Somewhat speaking of. It's not quite Cross Colors but definitely from the same era. Weird thick cotton/poly blend that almost feels like a sweatshirt.

    One would hope. But make sure you tell us which hospital so we can go elsewhere. :spam:

    Brioni light cottone jacket jacked up by mentally deficient workers = no cop

    Zipper was forced closed. Two holes from bad tagging.

    Odd jacket. Poorly thought out in design. Horrible cut. Would have copped to hit off one of the brioni fan boys on here but it was toast. Also no cop on the Dunhill silk sweater. Very dated and not in a cool or interesting way.

    It was an engagement anniversary, which basically is not a real holiday/anniversary. She used the shit out of that thing, we had to replace it last year.
