    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.

    Really? Guess SF is broken on the east coast US. Ah well.

    So has anyone handled the AA chino's yet? They look nice, especially the olive, though I am not to keen on the white contrast detailing on the front. If someone has them or can report on their fit, I'd be happy to hear it.

    Blogspot images can only be seen by everyone if they are already in the cache. So unless they visit the blog where it was posted or manually copy and paste the image address into the location bar they wont be able to see it.

    Ah, I didn't realize that.

    Yeah, robin, I'm not really inspired by any of it.

    Agreed. One, three and four look like Apolis, and two looks like Apolis trying to do the "surf Americana" thing everyone else wants to do for SS10.

    Maybe workwear Americana trend is fading? Now, we can all look like a more groomed, less pothead retro versions of the surfer dudes that grace college campuses nationwide.

    Fuck I hope so. Some of the stuff people are putting out for SS10 is disgraceful. To add, there is some bad stuff in FW09 too. I just walked through Barney's and I swear half of it was plaid shirts.

    Absolutely, but it was also the norm this spring.

    For me, plaid's jumping the shark. I'm waiting for Apolis plaid any day now...

    And we have tons of brands putting out plaid shirts to ensure this is the case...

    Here's another look at AA SS10, including the Rapha collab. I kinda like that green shirt, except for the epaulettes. [​IMG]

    Me too, and the chinos as well. I'll chime in when they come on Tuesday. I'm not sure how the sizing is going to work out to be honest.

    Me either, Farinellis and Context disagree on the measurements. Went with a 33 even though my normal tagged size is 31.

    Remember Farinellis measures the waist flat, without dip. While Context measures it with a dip, so the measurement is slightly smaller.

    Cool, thanks for the notice. Any differences in thigh? That's what got me.
