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.

    Not to take us away from diaper butts, but who do you guys like for socks? I have yet to find a sock maker (granted, haven't worn that many) that makes dress socks that don't get completely worn out within a few months of rotational wear.

    You probably need to alter the curve of the seat, so that it follows the curve of your body more closely. The sewing part is as easy as taking in/letting out a seat, but your tailor does need to have an eye for taking measurements. I've done it myself on some pants, took me about an hour of hand stitching. Would probably take me 15 if I had a sewing machine.

    I hope the tailor can make this fix. Will take this to the store tomorrow.

    what is diaper butt?

    the fit is great because the pants look great on him.



    i find that SFA house brand socks are real good, but really all socks suck, garters were where it was at.

    i find the best way to keep my socks from wearing out is to have about 60 pairs.

    The seat at the bottom of his buttocks is sloppy and resembles the creases seen in poorly wrapped diapers

    I primarily wear Howard Yount and Marcoliani. HY may actually be made by Marcoliani, but not sure. You do have to try multiple brands and find what works best for you. Some of the high end socks such as Sozzi and Palatino that I have tried were too thin for my liking. I have hairy legs (delete mental picture), so my hair actually pokes through the thinner socks. I know others that love thinner socks. Buy a couple pairs from the brands suggested by Murl & me....that should give you a good start.

    These socks from ASW are basically all I wear:

    I have many pairs, and they all get worn frequently. I've had maybe one or two get ripped in a year and a half or so of wearing them.

    They're not cheap, true. They're also pretty thin, so if you're looking for thicker socks, look elsewhere. But fwiw I have a couple of pairs of pantherella and prefer these. The contrasting rib is interesting and they never fall down.
