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.

    look pretty freaking cool. Seems he's been popular in Europe for a while now and is starting to hit here. I see Barney's NY carries them, I'll check them out in a few weeks. Anyone inspected them firsthand and can give an account?

    I've loved Margiela for years. Anyone who doesn't like jeans and is looking for a casual, non khaki chinos alternative that is machine washable, try Margiela pants. In fact, I endorse all his stuff, including his suits. I would say (and this is not original) that his style is essentially "grad student chic", sort of a sophisticated take on a very casual, nearly academic look. His basics (t-shirts, casual pants, sportsjackets, are amazing. Cool and modern without being too far out there.) Only C.P. Company and Dries van Noten, and to some extent Junya Watanabe and pre-Prada Jil Sander, IMO, come close to his use of fabrics.
