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.

    Will do, it had a little bit of what looked like a coffee stain on a cuff so it's soaking right now. Get something better tonight.

    p.s. does Cloak have a website or anything? All I can find on google is ren fest bullshit

    This would be your best resource. Label closed down in 2007, hence why no website. That's also the reason why it's a great find - has a cult following, like old Helmut Lang.

    Currently Visiting chicago for the first time. It's crazy how true the differences in dress are vs the west coast.

    Anyone have any tips for sales or thrifty places to hit right now? I've got two days in the city. Any help is very much appreciated.

    Me and my girlfriend at the homecoming dance in the fall of 1989. Checked jacket thrifted, as well as the 40's style tie (I used to find tons of them back then). Date's dress looks burqua-ish by today's standards, but she had a smoking body underneath. :nodding:

    Yall. I purchased a fake/real moncler jacket from the thrifts. It has half fake qualities and half real qualities so I'm pretty conflicted, and I'm just hoping it's an older model with a slightly different design.

    Pictures later for everyone to help me assess.
