We need more entries for the currect challenge, take some pictures of your outfits people

http://www.styleforum.net/t/472576/sw-d-challenge-bold-colors-4-8-14-4-24-14/15#post_7826130

So, the story is, that if, at *any* time, you globally unsubscribed from emails, i.e. you used the unsubscribe button in a Styleforum newsletter for any reason, that the email sender software will not send you any more emails, period.  I can't even fix that on the backend, and you can't resubscribe either.  It has to be reset manually.  So, moral of the story - never use that button.  If you feel like unsubscribing to something, always come on the site, and modify your settings manually.

 

Cheers,

 

Fok.

Incidentally, this includes password recovery emails, so it's screwed up a lot of people's accounts.  So... don't do it?

 

Cheers,

I only subscribed to the newsletter a few days ago, so this would've been the first time I was supposed to receive one. I never received an SF email and hit unsubscribe. I must have just subscribed right after the letter was sent out or something (I think I subbed on Thursday maybe?)

@Lorcan7 Thanks for the response. In my head, there are facets to material quality besides just structural integrity, so my bad for being unclear. I think I actually differ from you in that I value hand feel, fabric composition, etc. more than robustness. And thinking this through in my head, I think at some level I'm (possibly very shallowly) concerned with the "luxury" of the composition. Like you said, Levi's denim is pretty robust, but I can't help thinking... "they're Levis!!" @g transistor's comment about wearable art got at this as well. I guess I'm just not a fan of the rebuilt stuff like I'm not a fan of, say, Duchamp's readymades. Comparatively, I care more about the object itself than the message or story behind it.

Still interested in insight on the first point from the CdG fans here. Really can't stand 100% poly.

Also Lorcan for what it's worth, the cocktail shirts are pretty sturdy. Pajama pants less so.

Anything that is individualized is not just a lot of development, but a huge memory drain.  We can't even alphabeticize the "users online" without severely slowing down the site, because of the sorting that is needed for each users online any any one time.

Oh, cool.  You should be all good then!

I still value hand feel and composition but maybe of a different sort. Something like my Visvim linen jacket has incredible feel and quality, but it isn't luxurious either.

Some of the silk / silk-mix stuff Soloist I love, and i was tempted by a Schneider crew neck last FW, so maybe my taste is shifting very slighty.

I like Duchamp as well as Needles Rebuild now you mention it, which maybe tells you something. Heh.

From a construction standpoint they're not even that exciting: they're seven shirts cut vertically, and combined with literally the simplest stitch available. I remember reading complaints from people who bought the shirts saying "oh, why's this shirt polyester?" "why's one portion of my shirt stained?" "why's this made in the Middle East?" I mean, it's literally 1/7th of 7 different shit shirts. Most of you wouldn't wear $10 shirts from H&M, why would you wear 1/7th of 7 different H&M shirts? That's my thought process.

I think a major point that you and the people asking those questions/complaining are missing is the recycling/ecologically-conscious part of it. Yes some of these shirt pieces were probably unethically made but Needles is re-using them instead of letting them rot in a landfill. They are taking something that is cheaply produced and thrown out quickly and giving it a second life.

I will agree with you though that most of those shirts are not interesting to me. I do like when they overdye them as it transforms them a bit more. I also really like the pieces they've been doing with vintage military fabrics. Especially the pants.

We're a pretty good group of people overall, and certainly everyone (especially new users) would benefit from more symmetry/accuracy in how posts are rated/appreciated by others. Feedback is helpful. Removing hurdles that prevent even feedback isn't. If anything, we're so civil of a community that we tend to shy away from negative feedback - we just practice silence instead. Letting thoughts flow in a manner that makes the user comfortable is a good idea - and clearly we've seen that users are very comfortable with thumbs as a means to provide quick feedback.

My immediate thought - recognizing that this would involve development hours and can't happen at the push of a button - would be to separate thumbs and comments entirely. Have one button for thumbs - I would still leave it at thumbs-up only in the interest of keeping things generally positive - and another for comments. Yes, this introduces the arduous task of someone who wants to both thumbs-up and comment on a post to click thrice rather than twice, but it also allows users to comment positively, negatively, or neutrally without having to thumbs-up a post that they don't necessarily like in order to comment or to create a new post just to provide a couple words worth of feedback.

It could maybe also allow users to subscribe to comments on their posts but not thumb notifications, which tend to result in way too many emails letting you know that so-and-so "gave you reputation". I don't know whether this second option is actually feasible, but it could be a nice add-on for people who primarily want feedback on a fit, purchasing decision, &c.

^this is a great idea 

and I vote for no thumbs down button. sufu has that and I feel like it's a bit of a downer, esp if your post ends up in the red (negative thumbs). leave the critiques in actual posts, thumbs and comments for the good feels

HEY DUDES

 

Just to show that we do (sometimes) listen to you, I have a Very Exciting Announcement: this week, Styleforum's instagram account (follow @Styleforum) will feature its very first guest editor, and - yay! - it's not me. @nicelynice (follow @nicelynice) will be posting images that he thinks are "boring" but are pretty much anything but. We're going to try to do this regularly, so look out for future shenanigans. 

 

THE BREAKDOWN:

 

1. Follow @ Styleforum on Instagram 

2. Drool over beautiful pictures of whatever @nicelynice comes up with

3. Profit
