1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    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.

    Cheers,

    Wow, I never posted in this thread? I probably made 20 different lists and couldn't choose, my top few change frequently. Don't own most of this list, but have handled all of them quite a bit

    Alexander McQueen
    Ann Demeulemeester
    Balenciaga
    Burberry Prorsum
    Dior Homme
    Dries van Noten
    Jil Sander
    Maison Martin Margiela
    Marc Jacobs
    Viktor & Rolf

    Honorable mention: Gareth Pugh, John Lawrence Sullivan, Marni

    Lanvin gets no mention due to inconsistency. FW10 was really good for Lanvin, but other than that there's only one or two pieces from each season that I really like.

    It's always interesting to see the evolution of tastes. Mine have undergone fairly subtle changes, I think.

    1. Wings+Horns - basics fit me very well, and the goods are durable and easy to wear
    2. Martin Margiela - Really like the basics, outerwear, and accessories, though the price has gone up without any discernable improvement in quality (and sometimes, very much the opposite). The trompe d'oeil pieces really do it for me though.
    3. Common Projects - after over a dozen pair, it's impossible to deny that these have become my sneakers of choice. My price resistance seems to have been corroded a fair bit.
    4. MofM man of moods - great, slim fitting, outerwear - terrible exchange rate.
    5. Triple Works - because I'm loving their jeans right now.
    6. Stephan Schneider - jet wins, I'm a convert. I'm pretty sure it's the hoods on the outerwear and the sweaters that do it for me.
    7. RRL - jeans range from good to stupendous - so do prices.
    8. Engineered Garments - I haven't actually bought much from them for a couple of years now, but there is a bunch of stuff from this season that I really like.
    9. Dries van Noten
    10. Nicolo Ceschi Berrini - I really like the dark Americana x Italian look.
