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,

    From what I understand it's an obscure Japanese brand of heritage Americana wear made by the people who produce Free and Easy magazine. Silverwarebandit? Leftofthedial?

    Great look, though! :slayer::slayer::slayer:

    Yup.

    Correct. They are one of a number of Japanese companies that specialize in reproductions or / inspirations from a combination of old American workwear and Ivy styles, although Rugged Museum also has a dash of British style to it.

    Their website is here: http://rugged.jp/ They have an online summer sale going on now, if you can get someone to proxy for you. You have to watch out for the sizes though. They don't make for the western physique...

    I love their shop in Jingumae, Tokyo, which also has an extensive second-hand section with lots of Nigel Cabourn, Ralph Lauren, Gitman, Engineered Garments and other more obscure vintage and Japanese brands, and I'll be popping in when I am back in Tokyo in two weeks' time...

    Happy Fourth, thrift brethren. This is not today, but it is A) thrifted and b) very similar to what I'm waring today.

    J crew sc, thrifted by me.
    Tom lewin linen shirt, thrifted by
    Left Field jawnz, thrifted by me.
    Belt and shoes bought from Spoo.
    Square from Gilt.
    Car is part of a "dram car tour," which was a gift from Mrs. GMMcL earlier this year. This was the 451 Italia. We also drove a McLaren, a Lambo, Two Mazerattis and a Porsche.

    ^^^ Love it! You both look great!


    This used to be the logo embossed onto Gokey bags. They used this when Gokey was still an independent manufacture and was based in St. Paul, Minn. I had some old Battenkill duffle bags from the late 70's-80's that had this logo embossed onto the front side. It featured a hunter with a shot-gun walking through the field. Kind of hard to make out from the photo, but you get the idea. Not sure if they still use this or not. They could have recently revived the logo as a throw-back sort of thing, so if it's an older bag, I'm not entirely sure how you would tell it apart from a regular Orvis Battenkill.

    On closer inspection I can only find one Gokey made Orvis bag in their current lineup.

    The rest of the appealing Orvis luggage is from the Battenkill line. The bag that eazye posted is probably not Gokey (which does not mean at all that it's not a nice bag!).

    THANKS! Weight? Not much. Inches? Yes, and this is over two months ago; I've lost even more now. Trying to focus on fitness and feeling good rather than the actual weight number.

    I want to love this and you look the best you ever did, happier than you ever have, a million dollar smile, and your wife looks super hot as does that car….

    but its a 458 Italia and a Maserati. Not a 451 Italia and a Mazeratti.

    So for this

    Had no idea you were married to Tina Fey! Curious, how does a dream car tour work, are there race tracks or businesses that stock exotic cars that you can drive for an obvious cost?
