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 about you guys, but I love this look. It is True Religion, I think and I love the Converses. What do you all think?

    Not my style, must say, but I have seen worse.

    Not my style either. Definitely needs something else in it woven.. maybe a tan v-neck sweater, something with a strong pattern, and the jeans are just way too flared. It's too boring at the moment. Needs a little more 70s flare (not in the jeans).

    It's a sin to wear a sports jacket with sneakers.

    Ditto.

    It's really horrible. It's basically just thrown on without any consideration what actually looking in a mirror and thinking about how he looks and how uncoordinated his "Ëślook' is.

    Sinners get all the fun. I dislike this particular outfit though...

    I hate it when one collar droops way below the other, but I think it looks ok. I wouldn't wear it.

    It's so LA, the traditional uniform of the unstylish and I can't stand it more when the jacket is paired with a T-shirt as well. Saw some joker in malibu wearing his uniform this weekend.

    I do like the wide stripe pattern of the top - I own many tees (both L/S and S/S) as well as sweaters with some sort of horizontal stripe pattern.

    As far as the rest of the look - definately 'LA-dated'.

    Exactly, I coordinate textures and colors so the whole thing pops and if you can do your thing without looking like a page out of the bloomingdales catalog then props to you. I like the T if it's say a V neck and the sneaks if they're something like the suede jv chucks, not the trendy shit everyone wears. My buddy sometimes even wears a wife beater under his blazer but he can pull it off. Hell I often do the opposite of what everyone else does like rock my Lakers T from retro sport after they lost in the playoffs [​IMG]

    In addition, he doesn't match her! WTF is up with all these guys dressing like they rolled out of bed while their dates actually dress up in dresses? If he would have tried to match her style of clothing, it would have worked out a lot better.

    The chick's kinda ugly, and that's the surest and fastest way to ruin any outfit. So all our commentary and suggestions are in vain - I'm afraid there's no hope for this guy.[​IMG]

    I don't like the outfit either - and the girl looks like she's either suffering from slightly too many barbituates or one of those "about to blink" pictures that make you look like you have lazy eye.

    i think the problem for me is nothing looks authentic. he doesn't dress like that normally. thats his wannabe-stylish-so-i'm-gonna-go-do-everything-Cargo-magazine-tells-me-to-do-look. its too perfectly distressed in all the usual places. someone dressed him

    . . . and thats not a shot at Cargo. i enjoy it from time to time.

    Yeah, I don't think it's so much the basic elements that are problematic (blazer, tshirt, jeans, sneakers) so much as it is that nothing really holds the outfit together, and no sense of an overall guiding aesthetic. The colors don't really complement each other, the silhouette is nothing special, the textures are mostly uninteresting, etc.

    The basic elements could be done differently and it'd be an incredibly sharp look; I mean, I'm pretty sure there are at least some of us here have gone apeshit over the skinny-jeans, german military sneakers, vneck tshirt, super-slim-cut/peaked lapel/high armhole blazer look that Dior Homme and a million other labels have pushed for a while.

    I have a tan corduroy blazer that I wear with jeans, but I pair it with the right shoes and sweater / shirt / long polo that make the entire look work. This however is utter trash.

    And that makes all the difference. I have a cord blazer in almost exactly the same shade of brown as in the pic, though it's a wider wale corduroy than that one, and I frequently wear it with jeans. I like to think I pull it off, though who knows. [​IMG] But yeah, I agree, I don't like the outfit in the picture at all.

    I hate everything that the girl is wearing. That dress is for grandmas. Shoes and purse, way lame.
