    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.

    Would be great if, seconds after comment thumbs were taken down, a full background Allen Edmonds click-through ad came up.

    It would be more vintage Margiela. The earlier collections were very casual. "Cool grad student" was the way some of the early 00s collections were described. I'd wear that. A lot of tees, leathers, slouchy jeans, casual boots and chukkas, very DIY looking belts. A lot grungier and rucked up than the 70s inspired collections that have been more the norm lately.

    Yea man, I get that the 90's are hot again and all, but why must designers bring back the worst parts of it. Those jeans in the last pic are turrible. I saw an ad recently for Ovidia and Sons that featured elastic cuffed and waisted jeans with stirrups. WHY?!?

    It is over, no one working (versus reporting) in fashion dares wear fashun.

    Maybe a Mitchell & Ness Snapback would be something worth looking into. I haven't purchased anything from them recently (huge Braves fan) but I was under the impression their stuff was made in the USA. It seems it may or may not be but the hats look nice

    I've never followed menswear culture beyond what I see on forums, I mean I hate middle-class white kids saying swag and I don't need help from some condescending idiot to know how to wear chinos so there was just nothing in it for me.

    note: I think enormous geeks obsessed with the history of pocket squares, like you find on SF are cool, I just don't care about their little swagswag instagram brothers.

    Not all of their stuff is great, but their egyptian cotton tees are fantastic. Wish they made a grey and black version
