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.

    That looks like SNS Herning. Supposed to be good stuff as well.

    It's the Danish (yay!) brand SNS Herning. I wanted their Fisherman roll neck but had to skip it as the fit was off (the best size I could find was both too long in the body and too tight in the chest). NOBD's model there might fit differently though.

    I don't know. Not sure I want to spend $400 on a sweater I am going to wear three times. I ain't no baller. Also, If I can't buy it at a brick and mortar tonight it is out. I need it for tomorrow.

    This is why you should plan ahead and always have one set of clothes ready for when you need to wave your arms.

    I generally don't move my body very much.

    What will you wear when you have to lift your arms to try on the turtleneck? :confused:

    Why not? I got one of their merino cardigans when I was in NYC last, two years ago, and it's held up fine. For a piece you don't expect to use much it seems the perfect fit.

    .
    I like how they clearly adjusted the sweater sleeves so that only a ~0.5" cuff would show.

    I probably won't try it on honestly. I'm too lazy and I have a lot to do before my martinis tonight. Will keep you updated via twitter.


    I get similar feelings walking into Uniqlo as I do walking into the DMV. It is a real effort not to stab myself in the neck. I think I am going to hit up the Saint James store and Graham Fowler as they are close. They might have the turtleneck, where if it is nice enough and my leg is pulled heard enough I might pull the trigger.

    The clothes look like they're the right size. The model's just the wrong size for them.

    I do very much want a Stark. Will see if it's in the budget this winter.

    I'd certainly order one if it came in.

    There aren't that many cardigans with a stand up collar like that, and of those that exist, not that many with a textured knit pattern on the front, giving the piece some interest. The quality of their knits and the button front really top it off.

    ^ Doesn't the SNS Stark fit these criteria?

    Yea, that's what reminded me of that Inis Meain. The Stark is nice, but I like IM's cables over SNS's popcorn stitches and waffle knit stitches.

    Starks look like they can't decide whether they're a waffle knit or a quilted jacket #snssnark
