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.

    EZ can also just be the cloth, so it will be a Neiman Marcus blazer with EZ cloth, but made by someone else entirely. Maybe you already knew that, but chiming in to be helpful.

    $1.28 That's a crazy deal, is that a typo?

    Oh, that's my name, they have my name written all over them thanks for finding them for me. [​IMG]

    Can I bug you guys for an authenticity check on a scarf
    shoot, didn't realize they were so blurry. edges looked machine stitched. not at thrift, but no guarantee of authenticity, can get better pics if it's close.

    Nope. 1 paper Washington, 1 metal Washington, 3 metal Lincolns.

    Shirts were marked $11.99 each x 50% off = $11.99. Socks were $5.99 each x 70% off = $3.59. Subtotal $15.58. Plus tax @ 4.5% $0.70 = $16.28. Birthday coupon $15 off any purchase = $1.28.

    Edit: I would have grabbed more but this stuff was on the clearance rack, the only other shirts in my size were god awful patterns. I just grabbed the socks to get me up to the $15.

    That scarf looks fake to me. The hand rolled edges are wrong. I've never seen that logo on the content tag on any Hermes scarf before and the pattern doesn't look as detailed and as brilliant as it should but that could be due to the pics. I have found/flipped at least 5 real Hermes scarves in my last two years of thrifting but by no means am I an expert.

    No pics, but some casual Cole Haans for me (decent shoes in my size are a rarity), springy J Crew tie, and a trad purple Barneys house label (Made in Italy)

    It has been a great couple of weeks. This isn't even a portion of everything that I have gotten recently.

    I'll start off with these three pairs of kicks that I picked up at thrift prices and all minty fresh. The Jordans were unworn. I am a former sneaker head so I get excited when I find kicks like this. These are all gone already.

    [​IMG] Nike Dunk SBs (Patagonias)

    [​IMG] Jordan Spizike IDs Unworn

    [​IMG] Kids Hunter boots

    So all the names you're considering are biblical names, huh? Michael is biblical but pretty ordinary. Moses would be a bit unusual.

    Yea I suppose they all do derive from there. Not intentionally, but by no means ashamed of that.

    I suppose we're looking for something that is not-so-common, unique, borderline different, yet not so left field that it may be hard to pronounce.
