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.

    Depends on value IMO. I've never had a problem shipping there (20+ transactions over the years) but I've heard some real horror stories. I probably wouldn't ship anything I would feel put out by losing, say more than $50.

    It was me cause I bought a pair of NWT rag and bone cargos in the same color.

    Great fit man!
    Thanks for the inspiration!

    I wouldn't. Got scammed out of a $200 record about 8 years ago. Read up on some forums saying the country's postal service wasn't the most reliable and that Greece is a hot spot for scammers. I stopped shipping anywhere international except Canada and Japan.



    If the price was decent, yes.

    Thanks to @DerekS for some minor leavings at a store we both frequent. Popped my Malo cherry, as well as picking up a great Breuer cotton/ silk Repp, and a white Cerutti 1888 shirt for myself. Found a great Merino Lacoste Live sweater with a quarter sized hole in the back.

    I remember when I had buttons for nipples, it was a rough patch in my life.
    Yeah, that's why I ask, they weren't spectacular, but not terrible either. Just looked like a normal pair of raw or one wash straight denim. $30 a pop.

    Although, @troika the tag did say KATO'

    Just curious since it's my first year on the thread, do we usually do a gift exchange/secret santa around Christmas time? If so, we should probably get that started in the next few weeks in order to find stuff that fits our recipient. I can organize it if you guys would like, unless there's someone that usually does. If not, WE SHOULD DO IT!
