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.

    Wait, are you flipping? Or are you just like me been hoarding all your finds?

    Facking beautiful!!! Can I see a thrift pic?

    IDK, bro...I think offering it to the thrift gods by fire is more appropriate...

    3 Pcs and shoes. All within the last week or so. N/A for now. No real name recognition on the suits, other than this YSL with monstrous lapels.

    Ever since I've started watching House of Cards, our ribs consumption has gone up...We've just coped 2 racks of ribs from Costco!

    In thrift news, I've won a Gustin's Horween #8 Key Ring!!!

    [​IMG]

    In other news, the pair of Iron Heart I coped WASN'T the 25 Oz. XHS but rather the 21 Oz. 643S...I fell victim to the hypebeast before reading the fine print...[​IMG]

    So instead of 74% off the US retail, I got it for 67% off. It's cool, this will be my first pair of almost 2 pounds of selvedge denim! [​IMG]

    Eh flipping, but slowly becoming a hoarder.

    I'm always consciously debating whether I should sell my items for extra money or if I should keep them. I'm never going to find similar items for 9.99 ever again.

    advice?

    Honestly bro, I've stopped flipping after I got like $20 for a Canali shirt...I would trade not in your size grails for grails that are in your size. You ever check out grailed? I've never used it but maybe you can do some trading on there. Bro, trust me, if you thrift all the damn time, you WILL find similar items for $9.99 or even cheaper AGAIN and again and again. Just ask Nataku or Spoo how many similar items they've come across. I understand folks who thrift for a living need to move shit fast. But if you are like me with a day job, you'll just appreciate the beauty of thrifting for fun and for yourself + for the homies. Besides, I've started to appreciate saving my $ so once a year, we can thrift in the land of the rising sun where every damn shop has shit tons of grails but just not at the thrift prices we've come to expect. But who gives a shit when you can load up on grails in just one or two trips?!

    Good point barrel, but I like this philosophy right here. I use grailed pretty often actually, not a bad place to do business, but a lot of things there are overpriced

    Holy crap, dudes. Looks like I wasn't the only one who had a good day.

    No energy for pics, but hopefully I can post deets tomorrow.

    Nothing wrong with that but for me, personally I rather not have to flip through an entire store just for 3 to 4 items. I rather save my $ and time so I could do other things and blow my $ on grails when we are in Japan at a fraction of the retail price.

    Thansk guys! That jacket is definitely my favorite find in a good long while. Will get some heavy use come fall.


    For sure. Once the weather cools down, though. Haha. Always works this way. I find the best fall/winter stuff in the middle of summer.


    This is awesome! :slayer:

    If it were a size or two larger, you'd have a PM.


    Haha, that is awful!

    Good point. Not positive it's fused, but there's no obvious stitching to stiffen the lapel. I just won't assume anything. Bummer to not know the maker though!
