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'm looking for the NDG brown jeans in size 32 or 30. If anyone knows where I can find them or wants to sell them, send a pm. (Opening Ceremony has been sold out for over a week, they haven't updated the web stock yet)

    Edit: already mentioned by someone else. The emails are deactivated too.

    Why did they close so suddenly?

    Someone help me find -- or sell me! -- any NdG chunky ("marine"?) knit in L/XL! Every time one pops up for sale it gets sold so fast even if I find the thread within a couple hours I'm too late [​IMG] FML

    i am going to guess that they closed because they were really expensive and weren't making enough money. i'm not really informed but when i went there (december 19th maybe?) they still had a lot of unsold stuff. there also was construction going on around there which probably hurt their business. if you've never been it's not really an accessible location to begin with. i am only surprised about the closing because they seemed pretty versatile and they'd been in the game almost a decade.

    its kinda hard to judge because it was the whole brand that shut down, not just the nyc store. i only saw other customers in the store once in the 4-5 times that i've been there, the japanese dude who worked there always was complaining that there was too much business though. heh

    That just sounds odd even if it was disingenuous.

    FW10 was downhill anyway. I had a size medium shirt with an 18" pit to pit.

    ditto on usually being the only person in there (out of maybe 15 times going there over the past 5 years). how many stores were they selling to though? i always figured they probably did the most sales out of their own store but i could be wrong.
