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.

I don’t know what’s more ridiculously insane:

    I don't know what's more ridiculously insane: [​IMG] That RLPL actually charges $225 for a pair of "˜Luxury Cotton Fleece Pant' (sweatpants) or that I actually considered purchasing a pair on sale (plus the 25% discount code). Jon.

    Go down to your nearest Target. Get similar for $10 ($20 for whole suit.) If you are going to spoil yourself, at least go with Juicy Couture or James Perse, or another brand that actually specialized in this type of thing (for less money.) Better yet, just get yourself something from American Apparel.

    Actually, instead I just bought 3 pairs (black / blue / gray) on sale for $11 each at GAP.

    Ew. The whole matching suit is just so New Jersey mafia; I rather wear different colors if coordinating an upper and lower "˜sweat' combination.

    Ew? Rather, cool. It's either NJ mafia or Rocky. Both very, very good. I'll get myself a matching set tonight.

    I guess we'll agree to disagree. I usually sport either a gray bottom with a black top, or a blue bottom with a gray top, etc...but never matching. Next thing ya know, you'se is starting to talk like Stallone... [​IMG] Jon.

    no, no, no. men should never wear juicy couture. are you kidding me? (along the same lines, men should never wear express for men).

    where was i reading about the grey sweatsuit revolution, lol? vanity fair, perhaps...fashionable anti-fashion can be great.

    $10? Did you order them online or buy them at the store? Also, have received them yet? If so, do they have a nice wide leg opening? I ordered a couple of pair from Polo and the leg opening was so narrow, I sent them back.

    I'm not an expert on the JC line but I believe the men's side does not have "Juicy" written along the backside.

    That said, no man should ever wear Juicy Couture. Hard to take a chap seriously if he tells you he is wearing it.

    What got me was the shoes--do they strike anyone else as not working with the fleece, but against the fleece?

    I agree with you John. Only legit. athletic shoes with the matching sweatsuit, if one must.

    I purchased them in store. They were surprisingly baggy (well, straight-legged), and fit quite well. GAP has or had a few different sweat models, some even have fleece inside for the winter. The model I purchased has same-color cotton mesh 1 ½ inch wide stripe running down the side. Jon.

    Express-Men is/was Structure, and I've been a fan of the brand since the early 90s, I personally think they make fairly good basics, and while their denim has gone downhill since they were no longer structure, they make cool basics like cheap dress shirts in weird colors, soft but fairly inexpensive cashmere sweaters, and cotton sweaters (which I like for kicking around in) that have pretty interesting designs and are comfortable, well-fitting, and fairly expensive. I think Express is fairly close to BR in quality for their stuff.

    I do agree that men shouldn't wear Juicy though.

    Funny you mention that, since I am almost 100% sure that those aren't Polo / RLPL shoes. They must be made by some other manufacture. You think they would picture the model wearing one of their shoes, not some other companies.

    Jon.

    Oh, gimme a break. The sweats are comfortable, and worth if if you can get them cheap (correction, really cheap). How do you know if a guy is wearing Juicy couture anyway, other than if there is "Juicv" written across his ass? In which case, I agree completely.

    Like gorgekko said, I just don't see how I could take a guy seriously in Juicy couture. I would be uncomfortable even if nobody knew what I was wearing because I'd still know. Just say the name, say it out loud, seriously. Juicy? That might be the most feminine sounding name in the game. And they make a product that looks awful for women too. I don't want to walk around looking like a 3 year old and I don't want my girl to look like a toddler either.

    As for Express. There is simply no way you can defend Express/Structure and claim to be sartorially branche (they won't let me get the accent mark above the "e"). I really don't think men should be wearing labels that primarily focus on women or are more known for their women's lines.

    LA Guy, I definitely respect your knowledge, but you can't talk about 45rpm jeans and then in the next post switch it to Juicy's, lol...

    So men shouldn't wear Gucci, Prada, Dior, etc, either? They focus on their women's line more so than their men's clothes as well and are more well known for them as well.
