    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.

    I must be the only one not getting the camo thing. Never liked the idea of turning something soldiers use in to a fashion statement.

    To each his own I guess.

    God damn it, dude. That camo SC is awesome, but the outfit as a whole is fucking ridiculous, and you know this. I suppose there is no way to tone down the SC with the rest of your outfit, so why bother? I don't know... part of me wants to shake your hand and part of me wants to tell you to go home, you are drunk. I mean both in the best possible way. Cheers to you for going for it and ordering that SC in the first place for sure.

    FWIW, something like 50% (or more) of the items we wear are the result of, at some point in history, people turning something soldiers use in to a fashion statement. If you own a navy blazer or a pair of chinos then congratulations on your entry to the club.

    I agree, I know how they've evolved. But the camo pattern. It's not stylish to me, it's rather dorky. It doesn't look sleek, doesn't match. I guess that's part of the point, not to match but to collide with a bit of a "f**k off" flare.

    I think there's a big difference between a blazer that's evolved and anything camo.

    My preference would have been for different shoes, but I actually really like the rest of the outfit. The Lama boots he just copped would look great with that look imo.

    They're The Beaches of Rio 90s from the pack set to be dropped this weekend (I believe). I didn't want to wait and ordered from the UK...LOVE them. I hear you on the shoes, and I thought about the Lamas, but I just couldn't wait to wear these and since the whole rest of the gear was "FU", I figured why not cap it off.:slayer:

    Oh, so that's the Brooklyn gentleman hinted to have bought the camo SC... :D

    I like it and I can't imagine how many people are going to ask you where you got it.

    Fit looks great, BTW. Any extra tailoring for that waist suppression or does an off the rack size just fit you like that?

    Also, I don't know if this photo is recent or posted from the archives to show the trousers, but I have to say this is one stylish dude.

    Got the navy double monks, my first monkstrap of any kind. Lawd, I is in heaven. And then I opened up the burg Greeley! Amazing, thanks Mike.

    +1 even though I already +1'd.

    Killing it, Rob. I just got the trousers today and the hand is really amazing.

    That camo jacket, black t shirt, those white ducks, and OG Jordan 1s.....:nodding::nodding:

    That's pretty ballsy Rob. Well done.

    Are you typically a 40 in Epaulet sport coats?

    I'm going to post a fit pick of my new Napoli in 38R -- thinking it's a touch snug.

    I am a 40S...the regular length just looks a touch too long for me...short is a touch to short, but I'd rather it be a bit short than long....

    rivets are slimmer and have a lower rise than walts. rivets = chinos. walts = trousers. rivets = button fly, walts = zip fly.
