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.

    Hot on the heels of his GQ win for "Best Menswear Designer of the Year" and the resulting (and rather competent) Levi's Collaboration, Alabama good old boy Billy Reid stabs further westward with his Fall/Winter 2011 line. Plenty of these pieces seem a natural fit with his Stetson hat collaboration, a collection that skews more "Boardwalk Empire" than "Mad Men" in terms of period references and patterns. Tobacco brown leather takes the form of a tough-looking overcoat and a ruggedly elegant blazer. Boots are subtly brogued so as to not look too dandy, and shirts in a variety of fits and patterns are ever present. It may seem like his collection is going mainstream with this borderline "more-of-the-same" design -- it's different, but only slightly. That may be because he plans on expanding the brand, with plans to open up a store in Washington, DC coming into fruition. Nevertheless, Billy Reid stays straddling the line between an aspiring Ralph Lauren and a so-called "heritage brand."

    I really, really like this look. I wouldn't wear it myself, but I like it a lot.

    The loose pants are interesting. I wonder if others will tilt toward stovepipe legs.

    I've got the brown boots before the duffle bag [​IMG], got them on sale for $198...msrp $425. Easily one of the greatest shopping days evah! Also there's a BR sale going on ON RIGHT NOW SO YOU BETTER CATCH THE FASTEST FLIGHT TO DALLAS AND GET OVER HERE if you want to cop that 75% off. I bought a shirt and will probably go back tomorrow for another one.
