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.

    Would I be safe in assuming that if I wear any of the items listed below I'm going to look like a douche-bag?

    Trucker hat
    White leather jacket
    Black MMA t-shirt
    Jean shorts
    Cowboy buckle belt
    Leg-warmer socks
    Timberland boots (wheat color)

    Or is that pure SW&D ignorance on my part?

    is it wrong to like some of the rick owens leathers in the older milk colorways?
    they look good on some people (pasty white guys)

    You know I've been eyeing a white RO leather on eBay for several weeks.
    The price has me going back and forth.
    Also, I just don't think I can pull it off.
    Perhaps because I'm not pasty white. . .

    You see kiya's custom denim suit for his wedding? Fuckin' sick.
    1. Acquire white v-neck tee. 2. Remove sleeves to match shoulder seams on button-down. 3. ??? 4. Profit!

    yeah, that one has been on the market at $2k for years
    he's been trying to sell it here and on sz since sometime in 2009

    i don't get why he hasn't lowered his price yet, you can get a new intarsia from mr.porter for a few hundred less +free shipping with a coupon code, he's charging like $50 for shipping

    I'd pull the trigger at $1k.
    It's listed as NWoT which could mean anything.
    $2k is more than a bit extreme.

    the fuck does this mean dude? all short people are destined to wear shitty clothes from wal mart? smfh. there are plenty of short guys here who look great and do well with their proportions (I am not one of them, tbh).

    Just being a small guy doesn't suck. Being a small guy WITH A HUGE HEAD suck.

    Being short sucks being poor sucks being ugly sucks, and I fall into 2 of those 3 categories so I should know. Always more fun to be a tall wealthy male model, andrej pejic represent.

    but none of those are reasons to stop trying. Even if you're 951socal and you have a weird brain disease that keeps you from being able to make correct comparisons or analogies, you should still try to wear cool clothes. Not a 'fashion taboo' to do your best, don't be a fuckin idiot you know?

    if you're short (me) best thing to do is to get shirting shortned, pant's hemmed and hopefully have small feet (mine went the other way oh well)

    taller, better looking men can obviously pull off just about anything

    your argument was that short people are fashionable because there is a thread created for shorter males to discuss fashion, i think you're the idiot.

    ftfy. It's weird that there's such a strong shorty population on SF, I'm 5'11 and am usually average (maybe a tiny bit above, max), and am usually the shortest of my friends (always an Asian du in white suburbia concept)

    Also:
    I am wearing a black shirt.
    I am wearing a brown tie.
    I am wearing a tie with an untucked shirt.
    I am wearing a 1" wide tie.
    Your fashion taboos are my steez.

    Idk what my argument is, but your analogy is just awful.

    I believe socal has mixed you and alfa159 up. I have trouble understanding his analogies too :violin:
