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.

    It's warming up a bit here. Thought I'd mess around today.

    H&M scarf
    John Varvatos longsleeve
    J Crew paisley cords
    TBC captoes


    Asshole. This is exactly the kinda shit i need. I wish there were good cheap MTM options for stuff like that around here. TaT isn't the kinda style i'm looking for and this fits pretty much perfect. Nice job on the jil-knockoffs. They looked good on sufu in that closeup.

    Count me as a huge fan of the above two looks. Never thought I'd say Paisley looks sweet and killer suit.

    There's been a lot of good shit on here. Warlok, PG (despite the distorted face, tsk tsk), Karl, ARW (excellent pants-shoes combo), impolyt, Eason, all fantastic. SoCal should ditch the shirt. Raf/Jil/ma+ would fit in much better there.

    Recently mail-ordered some Uniqlo merino sweaters, and a pair of Uniqlo pincord seersucker pants, which I was thinking about turning into shorts. Considering the price, everything seems to be made really well, but the fit doesn't seem so great. Seeing how skinny I am, you'd think that clothes would look better on me, but they always just fit really awkwardly. It's frustrating. [​IMG] [​IMG] EDIT: I was also in DC last week and tried some stuff on at American Apparel and RL Rugby, which looked a lot better on me, for some reason. I get that the Uniqlo stuff looks bad, and the AA/Rugby stuff looks good, but I guess I just don't know specifically why that is. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    ^ You look like a younger Woody Allen in the pink sweater. Not gay, just weird and not attractive at all.


    Do not want.

    Lol...I tried on an almost identical pink v-neck sweater at H&M yesterday. It didn't fit me any better than that one fits you. The pants don't look bad though. How much were they? And it's a myth that skinny people look better in clothes, simply because most clothes are not made for skinny people. Skinny people look good in skinny people clothes.

    Adding fuel to the fire. To the left of the Confederate flag you can see the black and red stripes of the German flag. Flying a German flag in Germany today (except during World Cup time) is considered extremely right-wing and is strongly look down upon. Let me guess, your ancestors left Germany for the southern part of America which, of course, gives you a reason to fly it.
    I'm not a fan of the Confederate flag, but I am not going to ask the poster to take down a picture on that basis. It's not like he is giving the Sieg Heil salute. On the other hand, I am on the fence about the American History X avatar. I'll make up my mind later today whether I'll let it stand. No need to appeal to me either way. Fok.
    Who gives a fuck if there's a German flag there. If you are German, be happy to be German. Now if he had a Nazi flag hanging, that's a different story.... With that said, perhaps we should be asking why he opted to hang a rebel flag instead of an American flag. . Either way - it's pretty ass-backwards, I think the whole idea of preserving Southern Heritage by flying the rebel flag is bullshit. How is that different than Nazi's preserving their heritage with a Nazi flag? If F2B was banned for saying something incredibly ignorant, even if he probably wasn't a racist, is it a double-standard to let chris, with his rebel flag and American History X avatar that are both visually as offensive as what F2B said, hang around? I'm just asking.

    I'm not a fan of the Confederate flag, but there is a world of difference between the Confederates and the Nazis.

    I don't agree with this at all. If you're a slim build you can pull of much more stuff than "average build". You just have to understand how to dress yourself. Skinny guys can look great in some bigger stuff, playing with proportion that big guys can't do because it won't actually look oversized on them. Wmmk's problem is that he is trying to dress ultra trad all the time, something that requires a perfectly tailored fit everytime. It'll be easier as he fills out a bit, he's still only like 17 or 18 or something. Otherwise, the super trad on a budget thing might not be the best course of action for now

    Oh I would agree with that. I'm just saying skinny people don't necessarily look better in clothes, especially normal people clothes.

    Yah? how about you put the grandkids of lynching victims and holocaust victims in the same room together and tell them that. The confederates never reached a position where they could enforce a level of genocide that the Nazi's did. Close your eyes and imagine what teh USA would be like today if the south had won the Civil War and then get back to me. BTW, I'm saying that from the point of view of someone who did have the majority of my mother's side (pretty much ever generation older than my grandmother's) of my family murdered during the Holocaust
