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,

    1. SDA-103-the pair of jeans I wear pretty much everyday, and man are they hard to fade but everything about it is great

    3. MJK duffle-for when it is cold, my go to jacket.
    4. boo baseball jacket-spring/summer jacket though I do like my harrington for that too, I have too much outerwear (though I want more)
    5. vintage florshiem longwings-just got these today from MC's B&S. only $21!

    1) APC New Standard - 1.5 years old, one dry clean and one wash, platonic perfection.

    2) Suede Clark Wallabies - Dirty, messed up, can wear them forever. Makes me feel like a kid...or an 8th grade math teacher.

    3) Ralph Lauren Black Label 2 button Suit - Makes me look and feel like a billion bucks. Perfect for dates, meetings or a dinner party...I have one in grey and one in blue, both with a light pinstripe.

    4) Ralph Lauren Purple Label 2 button peak lapeled cotton jacket - Makes me feel like landed gentry, bitch!

    5) Dior Homme side zip black boots - dressed up with a suit, or down with tight jeans, perfect, understated and expensive...like life should be.

    1. BoO x Sperry topsiders
    2. APC NC...maybe a size too big, I love 'em anyway
    3. I technically own (but haven't received) Uniqlo seersucker pants. If I really love them, I'll get a matching jacket.
    4. My Rugby buttondowns...they're the only shirts I've found that are small enough for me in the neck and shoulders, but also long enough. I need to get them tailored.
    5. My Tibor Kalman watch from MoMA.

    It's pretty funny how so many people have so many of the same things.
    Funny as in completely explainable given the fact that 90% of WAYWT, Should I Buy, and Recent Purchases posts are the same 4 stores and smattering of lines/designers? Couple that with SF discounts at sponsors and you have a SF uniform. Don't get me wrong, a good chunk of what I own falls into the same names, but there is a reason behind it. Oh and 1. Varvatos Suede Chucks 2. RL Gray PS suit 3. MTM threadbare shirt my dad had made for me at Harolds for my 21st birthday 4. Black by Popular Demand T Shirt 5. Comstock Brown Cafe Racer Jacket
