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,

    I would have already bought it if the L wasn't so freaking small. Damn that's hot! So is this one, even smaller!

    Thanks!

    Re: guitar. Except for a few weeks in my first year of playing, shredding was never my goal. I played guitar and sang in the grunge years, started a roots/garage rock band after that, then put the guitar down around 2007, and rarely touched it after that. I recently was talked into playing lead guitar in a classic country cover band--something that would have been way too cheesy for me when I was younger, but is really fun now. Besides, I grew up on 70s country. But I was never *really* a lead player, and I'm out of practice, so it's a good challenge to fill that role. I guess that makes me more of a picker than a shredder. It's also the reason I'm keeping my eyes open for decent cowboy shirts.

    Haha...Sorry but for some reason, this had me laughing out loud. The funniest quote in the saddest way. Just the way it is phrased and the intensity/tone in which the punctuation denotes

    no shots, just sayin

    This is amazing. I'd wear the hell out of it if it were mine.


    It's never too late to go back too go back to school my man! I didn't even know how to thread a sewing machine a few semesters ago.

    If you take a look at the "seattlegoodwill" feed on eBay, you'll get the idea that there is a lot of talent now employed by Goodwill to sift through the donations and identify the valuable items. I don't know if anyone would be keen enough to spot this sweater amongst a stack of musty clothes, but certainly any coveted, labeled piece seen on our now famous thread, as well as electronics, housewares, furniture, etc will be spotted and never hit the store. And the stuff that does hit the store is priced at levels even above what I experienced at Savers when in Colorado. Seattle true thrift is a total waste of time; I have way more luck at consignment and vintage stores.

    True that... thought my schooling days were over after getting my college degree, just to find myself enrolled at the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising about 2 years later. Even though it wasn't cheap and I'm not really using the degree I got, going back to school to learn about something your passionate about is a fucking amazing experience, if given the means and time. Your just learning more about shit you already love learning about, and you're getting a more fundamental and foundational understanding of the stuff you love.

    I have a beach house on Puget Sound and last Summer I took a day trip into Seattle and hit about 5 spots and did really well, and this was going in blind, no real research or inquiries, just using an app on my phone. You guys had pretty solid thrifting situation goin on up there, sucks that now you get to join the other big cities, like here, where they price based off eBay.
