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.

    I feel like those could come in handy, if you were traveling through Munich and got called up on stage to sing with the band during the Hofbrauhaus Song... Especially after your fourth liter of beer...

    Maybe. It'll cost you one cat gif and about an hour wait.

    are there any lists floating around of who makes for some of the higher end menswear stores (Cantarelli/Belvest for Davide Cenci, etc.) as well as for brands (MG for BBGF, Isaia for Paul Stuart)?

    would be helpful and im sure someone has hashed it out somewhere.

    Balmy.

    BTW, to follow up on all the people who tried to convince me I should be scared of Minnesota in January: I went skiing in Vermont on Saturday. It was just below 0 at the base, less with wind chill.

    I wore a long sleeve under armor shirt and a slightly heavier duty under armor quarter zip plus a balaclava. Plus pants and gloves.

    And that's it.


    This.

    (It's Cantarelli, btw).

    That's kinda the plan since those long pockets in front are perfect for a bottle or a couple cans each. I'm thinking these'll be my lazy summer shorts.

    Does anyone have any sort of "in" with thrift stores to know if they do heavy restocking after sale days? I have a couple errands to run tonight and might hit up a couple stores on my way back, but if they're still as picked over as the two i went to yesterday, I'll just skip them.

    From what I've been told by a few GWs and local for-profits, directly after a large sale they go through the store and reduce their oldest inventory (oldest colored tag) or remove them for the Outlets. Usually takes a day or two then they'll put the new colored tags out later in the week (so thursday/friday). Some for-profit places stock heavily before a sale and just do color-specific sales (so all tags except the newest color is half off).

    Also found this, thought someone on here might know a young man (boys 20) who like clothes, [​IMG] vintage polo tweed, dual vents + ticket pocket. If this was a 42l, I'd wear the hell out of it

    Looks like Reyn's Men's Wear, before they merged with Spooner's to become...well, you can probably guess.
