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.

    This thread is friggin useless -- it was supposed to contain the moast epic pics but instead it has become a duller, crabbier version of WAYWT.

    It's really not difficult, you basically pick every fit with more than 7 "likes", there's very little margin of error. (Would be great if every waywt with more than 10 likes was automatically posted here). Omitted some that weren't my cup of tea but good nonetheless, could probably remove some too... Anyway


    Let's bring that shit up to speed.

    ^ That Asobu fit is so good. The auto-post thing is a good idea as well.

    I was thinking about this last night, but for one thing, seven seems like a pretty low number (not that another arbitrary number couldn't be picked), and for another - I wonder how the population skew would work out? Would we revert to 2008 and be praising solely workwear? I don't think so, but it seems that the most active and vocal posters in waywt aren't necessarily representative of SF's cultural and aesthetic ethos. Yeah, I'd vote for asobu pretty much every time he posted, but after adjusting the number necessary for the population (we don't want every single fit to be a best of), would anyone else? Would someone like Binker? I suppose it doesn't matter either way; and the SF hall of fame ought to reflect SF's majority tastes, but I guess I'm saying that the masses are not necessarily an arbiter of aesthetic truth.

    I largely agree, but good luck finding a better criterion of aesthetic truth.

    How about me?

    On that note, two that I thought were excellent but that might not get much love:

    I suggested a 10 likes threshold though, it changes EVERYTHING.

    The fit I posted were the ones with the most likes, I wouldn't worry about a new workwear offensive.

    I think one of the condition for fits to be posted here is that the pic quality should be decent, nobodys wants to look at good fits with shit backgrounds or all blurry or reflected through ten mirrors.

    Having a like threshold could have the unintended consequence of shifting the thread away from having discussions of fits to just voting on them. Although now that I think about it, most of the talk is fuelled by Lane and Uncontrol so maybe this is a good thing.

    Would look better without the cockbib

    We all started somewhere, this shit is like posting pics of you as a kid in that OshKosh B'Gosh and saying they dress like shit

    Great selection, though to be honest (and no hate here), I'm not a fan of that Synthese fit

    ^^ Most discussions in waywt revolve around bad fits or supposed bad fits, great fits usually get a couple of accolades then it's back to the bitch fest. People will stay for the drama.

    Besides, most people that vote on fits don't actually post in waywt

    I just thought you had evolved towards some diet-gothninja Geller type stuff. The jacket's not my cup of tea (like that collar though) and the sneakers are kind of ratty looking but without it'd be very similar to what I have in my closet
