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,

    WTF... are they serious? I know far too many people who "go commando". This will just not work!

    Looks like we've found the official Styleforum trousers. They'll go nicely with our C&J Weymouths, Engineered Garments belts, and Jantzen shirts.

    Well, since they're flat-front, probably no cuff, but considering they're also very trad-leaning in their style, flat-front with cuffs is okay too.

    HL must be dying about something like this being produced by his former label:

    To me, this is Lang meets International Male!

    It's probably a creation of the meister himself. Not far from the bondage pants we saw a few seasons ago.

    I think this is a compelling accessory to the RLPL thong.

    I bet Pat Bateman has a pair for when he doesn't want to get his pants dirty.

    Perhaps it's a condom for those who enjoy frottage.

    I'd bet you Euros to Dollars that Luc is correct. Some Helmut Lang catwalk pieces are pretty out there. We just usually don't have to endure them on actual people.

    True, HL could be a bit wacky on the catwalk. But I just don't want to believe it....

    The only real way of knowing is a) determining the last collection that HL actually had a hand in, and b) determining when this monstrosity was released.

    At least you can just hose it off when it gets *soiled* and not worry about shrinkage or waiting 6 months before the first hose.

    Well you don't get much more minimalist than, uh, clear, do you? No color at all?
