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.

    There was actually controversy about this because of a website a guy made that got you the cheapest tickets by having you miss your connecting flights. Some major airlines will void your ticket though for doing this if you have a two way ticket.

    Either the square root of 7 or 7 squared. Not sure which.

    I'm sorry Barrel, but in order to call dibs on any item in the thread now, you must engage in an extensive gif war. Any dibs without a subsequent gif war of at least a total of 6 posts will be considered invalid. You'll need to find someone else to participate in the gif war with you, even if no one else wants the jeans. That's just the way things are now. New paradigm. Thank @SpooPoker and @hbkshin .

    This thing is awesome, although too small for me. Quality seems pretty good, but the Google is failing me.

    Pics are crappy I apologize. The ground is cream and like a hunter green. Great condition but for a faint whiff of perfume.

    Had a terrible day today. Went to a couple of thrifts I barely ever frequent. The first stop was the biggest thrift store, and I was met by a couple who were obviously flippers. They had a cart full of stuff but I have to give them props, they knew what they were doing. The female more than male, however. She passed on a pretty good fake burberry, and a couple of jermyn street shirts that were just too expensive. She was ebay apping the crap out of some nwt BR stuff that she talked her, I assume, husband into; items that I would have picked up as well. I suspect they had some RLPL items in their car because I scurried over to the pants, the only section they hadn't appear to have hit, and found tons of PRL and one RLPL item. Enough of the story though, here are my humble and mediocre finds.

    Discount Store Grabs:
    NWT Lucky Brand Selvage Denim Size 32 (probs going to keep) Also not sure how they arrived at Marshals they still are on the website for 168

    No I havent been to that one. Thanks for the heads up though. I really need to start going to places like that. I see others do well at those and NMLC.

    I hit several stores today. This was about 4 to 5 hours of finds and I e-thrifted the best item, and not really for that cheap ($44). I was hoping to find some more fodder.

    @tben I almost bought that PRL DB for myself at a discount store here a few months ago. Was between sizes so it just didn't make sense. They're pretty cool though!

    Major thanks to @tben for the jacket to match with my tweedy trousers for a combined 8 lbs of countryside goodness:

    Holy Heck, couldn't have happened to a nicer guy. I'm glad persistence paid off on this one. Dang!!!

    I can't wait for more details. You're bound to walk away with tons of stuff. [​IMG]
