1. I'd like to announce that animated avatars are now available again. You'll have to reload, but they are once more possible.

    We've been doing a ton of work behind the scenes. The site load speed was already under 1/2 of what Huddler's was, on average, and we installed cloudflare, which means that the site should be even faster. A ton more will go on in the weeks and months to come, and some things will be more visibile, and some less.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    Just watched the original Ocean's Eleven (the one with the Rat Pack). It is a fantastic film if you're in the mood to check out some well-tailored, classic menswear. I was wondering if anyone else had a film they enjoyed for similar reasons.

    Pretty much anything with Cary Grant. NxNW is great; he had awesome shoes. Eva St. Marie was great in it too. [​IMG] Fred Astaire always looked good too.

    Stolen Kisses and La Chinoise. Great clothes, and exquisitely planned-out. (I think La Chinoise has been a big influence on Mad Men these last two seasons; at least in terms of color and framing and the way those things work with the clothes).

    Good times.

    As a sci-fi fan, Gattaca had a pretty big influence on me in terms of style while in college.

    I personally find 'The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly' inspiring design-wise...
