Nothing but praise for vintagebrett from me. Brett, thank you for having allowed this go on for as long as you did. We appreciate your hard work and dedication to this forum.
I'm a guy who straddles the line between the vintage and modern models of gloves. The gloves I like run from about 1965 to 1975, so I have spent much time in both areas of the forum, and will no doubt continue to stop here daily for the vintage leather.
As the modern section grew and grew, I, at times, had the feeling that the VBGF had lost some of its focus and was being overpowered by the interest in modern leather, which is equally legitimate. With the new site starting for the modern gloves, not only will the VBGF regain its original focus and allow Brett more rest, but the new site could really end up being better suited as a place to explore and show today's gloves if we work at it over there. I hope and think that two individual forums will better serve the needs of their members--thus I see cause for happiness over this decision.
And I'm really excited about the new forum starting up. Thank you to Wake for picking up the banner and allowing it to fly continuously.
Brett, this is my favorite place on the web, and it will continue to be just that! Thanks very much.
