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.

    A is the best T for me as well

    Particularly I like the material feel and wear of the tri blend style. But they are ridiculous expensive at like 20 bucks.

    But they are great and they also wash well which speaks to longevity and quality materials

    These are what I wear too, and they are great.

    But what drives me nuts is the AA v-necks are always shorter in the body then these loose crew ones. The v-necks are literally unwearable due to being like two inches shorter. Do they make a longer v-neck (in the body, not deep v).

    My varsity from B&S unexpectedly came with a bunch of nicks/holes like the following, trying to amicably deal with this

    Are these normal to the production process or are they more likely a result of the wearer not being careful?

    ^Whoa. I don't have a varsity, but none of my ToJs came like that. Scars are expected, but not holes that look like they were poked with pens and pencils.

    So what are people going with generally for the MDR'S; lambskin or calfskin?


    Also, with my darker skin tone, I was thinking a grey or brown MDR, but then I guess I'd have to match that with black boots?

    Personally, I think that the harrington is nice but it doesn't stand up to the suede blouson. It really doesn't get enough love.

    Drew, you really make it look good.

    Is this legit? Could use a few V necks



    Also, best basic tee I've found is the J crew slim fit, really nice

    I almost want to sell my moto to fund a sand suede Harrington. It's sinful, I know.

    Narrow gray trousers, sand suede Harrington and a loose necked white tee. 20 year old - old man status.

    this isnt normal for any leather. if I were you I'd inform the seller, open a case with paypal and:

    A) ask for a partial refund if you feel that you can live with it

    or

    B) ask for a total refund and send it back at the seller's expense



    ****this is all based on the assumption that the seller did not clearly indicate to you that it was damaged****

    I'd say this would be a pretty reasonable response

    The seller said he never noticed the issue when i contacted him today. He said the varsity was in unworn condition. I do not want to think ill of anyone else, but I noticed the nicks/holes immediately when I unpacked the varsity from the box.

    I know your initial reaction is to believe the seller, but there are a lot of people who would send it out damaged to recoup money on it and pretend to have known nothing of it. I can assure you that, despite whatever FedEx/USPS horror videos you have seen, the mailman did not open your package and stick thumbtacks in your leather.


    Ultimately, at the end of the day, you want to cover your bases. I would open a case, while maintaining contact with the seller, just as a precautionary measure. The point in that is if you wait too long, paypal will do nothing about the matter and you will be left with paying full value for a damaged good. Opening a case does not have any negative impact on anyone, it merely just means that there was a little blip and it essentially opens up communications to rectify the matter. If you guys reach an amicable agreement, then you can just close the dispute and everyone is happy. It only becomes negative when you escalate it. That's when PayPal gets involved and is only resorted for when you cannot agree to terms or feel as if you are being scammed.
