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.

    @capnwes ,

    Ferragamo gats? Interesting.

    What's the size on the leather?

    Maybe he was trying to keep them from being controlled by aliens. [​IMG] Today was a rather irritating day. Rolling through the suits at one of my regular stops I come across a crazy recent Zegna suit coat. Their current label. This is the first of that label that I've found. $8.99 too, which means the pants were base price as well. I go crazy throughout the store tearing through the men's, women's, kids and sweatpants racks looking for the pants. No sign of them anywhere. I ask one store worker if she could peek in the back and see if the pants were on a rack back there waiting to come out. She comes back and tells me "The pricer said this came out on Saturday and did have the pants with them. This weekend was crazy so if they're not with the jacket, I don't know what to tell you". So some doorknob bought a pair of striped suit pants for $4.99 or $6.99 that just happened to belong to this crazy nice Zegna. Couldn't he have taken the Botany 500 or Stafford suit pants? Gah. Just irritates me that Goodwill stores around here price everything separately. Why not keep the suit a suit? I realize they likely make more money pricing stuff separately but boy is it annoying. Anyway, here it is. I couldn't leave it. [​IMG] [​IMG] Some other stuff. All available. [​IMG] [​IMG] Helmut Lang polo. No size but is really small. XS or S probably. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    There's something I actually like about this, but I can't quite put my finger on it.

    Ah, that makes more sense. And also makes me quite sad. Thanks

    The older lady ahead of me in line was trying to buy a case for her phone, but she was .10 short. I paid it and when it was my turn, the cashier let me have this for free. :slayer:

    Greetings all,
    Newbie here. So I "assume" those that post available with their items, they are referring it is for sale or trade? They want pm'd if someone is interested? Sorry, but didn't notice anything in the first few pages of the thread regarding this and it is quite the thread. Thanks for your patience with me.

    Lol. I'm still trying to figure out sizing between 30 and 31. Unsure which way I should go if these are my measurements...

    W: 15.5 inches or 40cm
    Rise: 10-10.5 inches or 28-30cm
    Inseam: 32 Inches or 80-82 cm
    Leg opening 7.5 inches or 18-20 cm
    Thigh at crotch seam: 12 inches or 32 cm

    Any input appreciated since I'm not familiar with their sizing. Thanks for already helping via PM @Fueco !
