1. I'd like to announce that animated avatars are now available again. You'll have to reload, but they are once more possible.

    We've been doing a ton of work behind the scenes. The site load speed was already under 1/2 of what Huddler's was, on average, and we installed cloudflare, which means that the site should be even faster. A ton more will go on in the weeks and months to come, and some things will be more visibile, and some less.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    He needs to wear some higher socks.

    he kinda looks like Todd Bridges.

    but under no circumstances do I like the look of trainers with a suit.

    If Todd Bridges and Sam Jackson's sister had a baby...

    Not bad, but the blue in the shoes may be too matchy matchy.

    He's taking cues from Thom Browne with the no socks routine.

    I like the suit and the no socks, but the sneakers are too chunky. I think some sneakers with suits look okay, but it appears the leg of his trousers are fairly tapered, and this would definitely require a slimmer shoe in my book. I think a tan dress shoe would have gone better - he could still eschew the socks.

    Well, I for one stray away from wearing no socks or low ones with any suits... I agree about the sneakers, they are a bit chunky. But honestly I think he'd have looked more well put together with some regular white athletic socks or (even better) a good pair of argyle ones. As for slim sneakers, you can't get any slimmer than Chuck Taylor. I think they're taking hints from GQ the way they're adding pinstripes and plaids to their colours nowadays.

    I recall that the Thom Browne no socks look was only shown with formal wear.

    Trainers/sneakers with a suit just doesn't work for me, with the possible exception of something like a cotton khaki suit.

    LK is that really Thom Browne? I could never wear something like that. It doesn't appear that he can either. [​IMG]

    Truly; it was from Time Magazine or something about two or three years ago.

    The shoes are especially horrible and appear especially large. Looks like he gleaned them off a bum.
