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.

    these guys' tees are somewhat boutiquey and pretty cheap. about 24 bucks a pop. real nice colors for summer too.

    501's might be better than gap jeans for the price, but it's hard to argue with raw selvedge for 30 dollars.

    I don't find the 501 stf fit very flattering. I'd much rather get a pair of 514, 511(if i wanted skinny), spend some more dough and get apcs, wait till stuff goes on sale like crate, corpus, nudie and others(like at denimbar) and get them for under $100. I know 501 STFs are iconic and everything, i'm just not a huge fan. I'd rather have a dark nice fitting pair of jeans than a pair that's just raw. To each his own. Raw and selvage don't mean good either, people. Don't drink the kool aid too much. Get some shit that fits just the way you want it.


    Just buy a pair of apc ns sized down 2-3 or apc cures sized down 1. Then from there buy some basics at AA, H&M and Uniqlo. Get a solid pair of white sneakers like spring courts, german army trainers, chucks, van slips and a pair of nice black sneakers(not black with white chucks though). Get a m65, maybe a cheap peacoat from one of the cheap stores. The 3 stores above have cardigans and hoodies too. Then from there, just sprinkle your wardrobe with 1-2 more expensive designery items per season so you don't break the bank, but can get a few impact pieces and items that fit perfect or are exactly what you want aesthetic wise.

    but are you looking for blanks or screen printed t's? quality screen printed t's dont come at 10 bucks a piece, unless a site has like nothing but xxl's left and are trying to get rid of them.

    No one is saying that 24, or even 50 dollars for a tshirt isn't justifiable. What we mean is that he'll need a few nice tshirts, and nice tshirts can be had for 15 bucks easily.

    You could easily get 2 pairs for less than 100$.

    I just got a pair of STFs for 25$ at the Levis outlet. Also happens to be my first pair of raw jeans :p

    The shirts on that linked site are hideous by the way.

    I forgot about Zara. They're about Banana republic price, with somewhat better styling(i guess it depends on the collection). If you're in england or want to order from there, Topman has some nice, trendy, well fitting clothes for a good price. If the pound wasn't killing the dollar so much i'd buy some cheap stuff.

    I checked out their website and saw that their jeans are "neither low nor high rise". I need a fairly low rise, one that's not 'noticeably' low (I am somewhat short waisted). Any ideas of another brand, or will this rise work for me?

    New cures are pretty low rise without venturing in to girl jeans territory, dunno if new standards have the same rise.
