    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.

    Nolita is cool, desserts are good on Mulberry, but that is about it. Any place that tries to woo you into their restaurant should be avoided at all costs. It is worse than 6th street in the East Village. Anybody familiar knows what I mean.

    Although much of San Diego has traditionally been almost anti-elegant, Little Italy is elegant, very friendly, well cultured, and everyone is free to be who they want to be. It is a real community, where people are very accepting. In my opinion it is one of the best places to live.

    The Gaslamp is a circus, engage in moderation. IMO Don't go there too often or not know what you are getting into because you will become a cynic in humanity.

    I have never been to San Diego, but in my mind is it full of people in pop-punk bands with purple hair and shell necklaces.

    Hahaha, I don't recall anyone dressed like that. Maybe at Comicon they would come out... When you have a chance you are welcome here. I will show you around and introduce you to everybody. It is really a small town.

    the only hawkers that are worse than the restaurant ones are the comedy club ones.

    Like every other city in the U.S. it has been misappropriated by hipsters. At least the Gaslamp has. Yet another reason not to go down there too often. I personally like the Gaslamp, but god damn are there a lot of pretentious people there.

    That's like the entirety of the Plaka in Athens. If there is a place like that in the U.S. I will stay far away.

    As you can see. Plus fours can be used in the city too. Not only for sports or golf. / TinTin

    Yeah, but Albert Hall makes me want to be a hipster like him.

    I feel like shopping with VictorSF and Albert Hal would be a great time. They both bring two very different perspectives into how they dress, but both have a defined style and an obvious sense of fun.

    You are welcome. The coat is a British tweed from the 1940´s. I found it on Old Spitalfield Markets in London a few weeks ago. The plus fours, from the same time, I bought in a vintage-barn 80 km from Stockholm. Second hand Trickers shoes from a vintage store i Stockholm. The new socks (Pantharella?) and the new Borsalino hat you can find everywhere. The horn glasses is vintage too, probably from the 1930-40´s. Now we wait for Victors answer.

    Well there is a major distinction between the two. Al thrifts and shops, Victor commissions clothes. Not even a similar practice, imo.

    You shop the way you want to shop. They just sit on your shoulder (literally, if that sort of thing floats your boat) and whisper into your ear what they think you should buy and where you should buy it.

    I don't think a lot of people's clothes sit on their shoulders. I think a lot of people's clothes are suspended at their waists.
