1. Hi. We moved systems, and because it was impossible to achieve feature parity between the systems, we opted to archive the old B&S threads but allow users to read them so that they can put them into our new B&S system.

    There is a support thread if you have any issues.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

  2. I'd like to announce that animated avatars are now available again. You'll have to reload, but they are once more possible.

    We've been doing a ton of work behind the scenes. The site load speed was already under 1/2 of what Huddler's was, on average, and we installed cloudflare, which means that the site should be even faster. A ton more will go on in the weeks and months to come, and some things will be more visibile, and some less.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    I am getting rid of some brand new stuff I bought just a few months ago, but never wear. Â The Varvatos shoes are a great disressed leather, and go great with jeans. Â I would keep them, but have never gotten around to wearing them (as you guy know, I nearly always wear sneakers. Â The retail is about $350, and sell at Filene's basement there for $129, but hardly ever make it to markdown. Â The size is a generous 10.5 (I wear 10.5 US and have medium wide feet, and they fit me perfectly. Â They are brand new and in perfect condition except for some scratches on the soles (you can see it in the picture) from trying them out on not perfectly clean hardwood. Â Cool leather laces. The Ted Baker (London line) snorkel parka I would also keep, but it is too big. Â It is supposed to fit oversized, and would fit a 42R perfectly, but I am a 40R - so, great jacket, but not when I wear it. Â It has rubber toggle buttons and a dual-directional zipper closing, buttoned, flapped hip pockets and handwarmer pockets above that, as well as a hidden vertical pocket with a zipper closure. Â The inside is a really cool iridescent blue-green quilted lining, and features a cellphone pocket and a passport pocket, as well as a toggled drawstring waist. Â Composition is wool/acrylic, and quite warm. Â Again, very cool, and brand new, but not my size. Â It is a Ted Baker size 4, which will with a 42 to a 44, and is also brand new, although in my enthusiasm, I took the tags off. Â No damage or wear whatsoever, guaranteed. Â I don't know the retail for this piece, but saw a similar coat at Saks for $450. I'm asking $100 shipped for either item, and $180 or both (shipped.) Â The Varvatos shoes would sell for more on Ebay, from past auctions, but frankly, I would rather avoid the hassle, and sell it to someone I can trust on the board. Â PM me if interested, otherwise I will Ebay both items on Wednesday. Pictures below. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Some minor corrections:

    Ted Baker jacket:

    Composition is actually 60% wool, 40% rayon. Not sure if the lining is included in this. And the lining is iridescent red-green, not blue-green.

    I took some measurements (and remember that this is supposed to be an oversized parka.

    Shoulders: 22.5 inches (though I'm not sure I took this measurement correctly.) I took this measurement along the back yoke.

    Chest (or rather, back) 25-26 inches. The parka would fit oversized but well on a 42R or 42L (but not a 40R, trust me on this one. I am 5'11'' and 165 lbs, and it swims on me), nearly perfectly on a 43R, and would be "just right" but probably on really oversized on a 44 R)

    Jacket has been sold pending payment (funny for me to ship something back to K-town, R.)

    This is a last offer to anyone interested in the shoes before they go on Ebay. Really nice for any 10.5s out there...

    Fok, I suspect they will be too wide for me, but I'm running to the Downtown Crossing T and will stop in FB in 30 minutes. I think there's a 10 or 11 of the same pair there right now. I'll try it on and let you know.

    Aaron,

    I think that that was a size 10 I saw there a few days ago. If you are around the Law school anytime, I could give you a try on of the actual shoes (they are sitting in my office.) I'll PM you.

    I am going to put the shoes up on Ebay on Sunday, since that seems to be the best day to end auctions. So this is last call. If I don't get a shout out from anyone before tomorrow evening (reasonable obo will be considered) they are going on the block.
