    The "sending the head forward" thing is more likely than not to do with marketing, in a graphic design course I studied in they mentioned that a popular study found magazines sell 30% more when there is a face staring at you on the cover. A forward head could have a similiar effect - though to an obviously lesser degree.

    Why's he covering his crotch? Makes me think he peed in his pants or something.

    Might be something to do with the fact that if you look at someone who looks arrogant you are likely to associate the brand with douchebags. Maybe they decided that making him look meek was a good way to get people to identify with the brand?

    Likewise, these will be my first. They are 709s apparently but I have yet to receive them. I think they'll come in today!

    Yeah, they show up on eBay occasionally (in tiny sizes), but I've never found a steady source. Does Bergdorf carry them? With the amount of blog hyperventilating over them right now, I anticipate them becoming more common.
