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,

    10 is a bit excessive and contradictory to 'favourite', so I'll list 5 in order..

    1. Ann Demeulemeester - Love her free flowing garments, not a single constricting piece, her last season was the most aligned collection I have seen with the aesthetic I'm trying to achieve.
    2. Robert Geller - The futuristic utilitarianism combined with a tip of the hat to oldern times is wonderful, quite similar to cloak but this isn't a bad thing.
    3. Burberry Prorsum - Timelessness in a nutshell, I love how they incorporate luxurious materials in a playful, interesting way and seem to actually use them constructively instead of just for ostentatiousness (ala Giorgio Armani, Versace). I also admire their wide range of appeal, probably one of the most universally appreciated brands out there.
    4. Vivienne Westwood - A lot of interesting cuts and styles, nothing is kept standard, good sense of humor too, she is certainly one of the most creative designers out there, if a little bit incongruent.
    5. Alexander McQueen - Great balance of luxury, creative licence and traditionalism, not too extravagent but certainly not boring, similar to Dries Van Noten in this sense, only I think AMQ has more of a sense of humor/playfulness.

    And some in no order which I love but probably wouldn't wear unless otherwise mentioned (heh, that is, if I had the chance to).

    Balenciaga
    Jil Sander
    Helmut Lang
    Kris Van Assche (screw the haters, his stuff is real nice in person and Dior Homme SS 2010 was quite reasonable)
    Rick Owens
    Dior Homme
    Gareth Pugh
    Rad Hourani
    Tim Hamilton
    Carol Christien Poell (would wear)

    The idea that most people here have ten brands they actually own enough pieces to judge fairly is laughable but I will play internet sartorialist:

    Paul Smith
    RRL
    Varvatos for Converse
    Anything Mauro puts out
    Post
    3sixteen
    Stronghold
    Crate
    Gap
    Rogues Gallery


    Don't own any Post or Stronghold yet but I love their aesthetic. The rest I own and love. I don't buy PS but once a year but it's my favorite purchase every year.

    There are tons of women's lines I would put over just about all of these.

    I think the "right now" part points to it more being present infatuation.
