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.

    Yeah, whats the deal? The ones in the pictures look like they've been worn for a week.
    If I was in the market for this type of shoe, I think I'd go this route: http://www.unionmadegoods.com/Alden_...29332_217.html

    seriously? jcrew just raised their price on stanton pants from $69 -> $75.


    Thanks in part to unrest in Egypt the price of cotton has shot up.

    They have had these in store for a few weeks - the store models aren't pre scuffed. Given that the soles were worn in the photos, it looks like J Crew literally had a guy wearing them and scuffing them on purpose for a while. I would guess they aren't sold that way

    that's the real reason behind it? so that means the stanton pant has a better cotton than the regular chinos? i thoght it's just the wash and dye that costs more.

    but after all [​IMG]

    quote from the jcrew description:

    Today's suede shoe feels more laid-back: We like them when they're scuffed up a bit and worn without socks. (Don't be fooled by the low-key feel: These are definitely built to last.)

    Thanks for the intel. I sure hope not -- Crew does have a track record of doing that to perfectly fine garments & footware, like this Quoddy moc http://www.jcrew.com/mens_feature/th...0841/30841.jsp and the Russell 3 eyelet chukka they were selling for a while that seems to have disappeared from the site http://www.jcrew.com/mens_feature/in...ny/Russell.jsp

    By the way, Crew has these Quoddys on sale for $199.99 (that's 2009 prices! [​IMG] ) in size 9H (9.5) http://www.jcrew.com/AST/Navigation/...~~~~/30841.jsp and Danner Mountain Light IIs in several sizes for $268 http://www.jcrew.com/AST/Navigation/...~~~~/30910.jsp

    Nice bucks from Alden. But they appear to be pre-scuffed. I wish they wouldn't do that.

    What the hell are they doing? Scuffing the soles, too? $400 shoes need to be broken in by the wearer. What a joke.

    I got a medium Merino half-zip sweater. Anyone know a such fire way to shrink it a tad?

    FYI they have had them there for a few months now. In January they had the coniston boot and a short wing that I can't remember the name of. They look good IRL.

    No, they don't come as shown. J Crew has taken to showing how the shoes look with a little wear on them...which is sort of cool but also sort of misleading if you don't know that.

    Oh, nevermind then... [​IMG]

    Actually, it's kind of funny and odd that they choose to show them that way. I find it a little over the top ridiculous myself.
