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,

    This is a wonderful collection, I think, that succeeds in several ways. First of all, the clothes seem to impart an extra dose of confidence to the wearer. I realize that models should be confident in clothes but even given that the guys seem to have some extra swagger coming, maybe, from the rock and roll pedigree of the outfits. The outfits are balanced really well: they are not top-heavy despite the skinny jeans. This makes them imaginative but not outlandish (except for the half of the collection that really is outlandish). The coats and the jeans work great together: the short cutaway in no. 16 is incredible and the straight 3/4 length coats (4, 22) are right on target also. These are going out clothes that are not just for posing (although they certainly are that). You don't have to drag your look around with you. You can actually do something in it: cajole doormen, order drinks, dance, get into fights, go home with someone you hardly know, all the things you're supposed to do when you go out.

    Sure, some of the guys are done up like the New York Dolls, so what? Fred Grant and Cary Astaire are not the only fashion paragons out there and neither of them will do you any good in the meat packing district (New York, West Side) next Saturday night.

    I dig it. A tad too androgenous for my taste, but I think it looks good on those skinny rocker dudes. I preferred his last collection, a little more masculine. I think Slimane's got the right idea with the fitted, low slung thing. It's pretty cool lookin. For me, I also like his own get-up.. jeans, sport coat, chuck's and a scarf. Thanks for posting this.

    Wow.. I couldn't see the pictures before for some reason, but I finally got to look at it. I gotta say, I would rock about 70% of that stuff (the real world stuff, not including the gold shoes and scarves and crap). In fact, some of it looks like what I sometimes (try to) throw together from the thrift shops. Unfortunately, pants that slim are not to be found outside 'fashion' labels, for the most part. Assuming I could get a longer rise on the pants, I'd take most of it.
