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,

    To be totally honest with you, better companies have so much better construction, attention to detail, and often material. You know this.

    THAT SAID, when you're looking for something and you find it and it fits and looks good, then who cares? I love finding random stuff that I want that's in my size. It's an awesome feeling!

    I do know this, but willing to live with a little less attention to details and fabrics to get the look and fit that I wanted. It wasn't for a lack of trying, I did drop some big money on a Boglioli blazer to find the fit to not work.

    Fit and looks trump everything. Who cares if it's not a 950$ Kiton shirt or a 3000$ Brioni jacket? I've bought so much "shitty" brands that fit me like hell in thrift stores :eek:

    THAT SAID when you find dat Kiton suit your size and it's a current design.... [​IMG] Even better feeling :D

    Thought this was pretty crazy. Finally got some jeans weather here in Minnesota so I broke out my Sugar Cane 2009s that I bought in Tokyo a couple years ago. As I'm flipping through a rack of jeans at the Goodwill I spot a label I have never, ever seen secondhand before. In fact the only time I saw it in person was in Japan while buying my pair. That's right, found a pair of Sugar Canes while wearing Sugar Canes. Not only that, but they're the exact same model! What are the odds....

    Thanks all. Yes, they are Barrie. Was very close to pulling the trigger, and would have done so if not for the heavy wear on the soles (probably need to be replaced soon).

    Well, I thought you were a person, but I've been wrong before I guess.
