1. I'd like to announce that animated avatars are now available again. You'll have to reload, but they are once more possible.

    We've been doing a ton of work behind the scenes. The site load speed was already under 1/2 of what Huddler's was, on average, and we installed cloudflare, which means that the site should be even faster. A ton more will go on in the weeks and months to come, and some things will be more visibile, and some less.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    Yes please do! I don't think I was too precise about when the fit had to be worn anyway...

    So this look seems to be inexplicably popular this year at Pitti. Probably not wearing a Brooks Brothers polo (as far as brands go, the anti-Pitti)

    You look so weird. I like the polo color though.

    It is a rather weird trend.

    I did actually wear that shirt today, but with shorts and Adidas.

    @Prince. That's very very nice. You look like royalty.

    Jacket sleeves might need to be a little shorter to look like royalty. However, even if the jacket sleeves are too long to look like royalty, it's still a very good look.

    Nice, but Brooks Brothers and other classic American brands have a really strong following with Pitti (and other, usually non-American) #menswear dudes.

    @blekit 's fit (above) is the only one even remotely resembling a Pitti peacock fit so far.

    ^^^ Agree. Not saying it is a perfect example, or that I particularly like it, but he's certainly got the feel of it down.
