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.

    1) The drum circle was excellent. Synth, take notes for the next trunk show. We need to budget for drums.
    2) He has a name. It's Aaron. And don't be dismissive of his brand. It's "Alpha-M".

    This, and the fact that it started with some dude saying that it's good to know that you're not the only one out there. And that each testimonial
    You remember that editorial trip we tentatively planned for London, @Synthese ? Change of plans. Start looking into flights to Atlanta.

    Well, it's actually StyleCon 2015.

    Which was another piece of comedy gold

    "It was an event that started in 2014...
    StyleCon 2015"

    Is there a "help me kop this grail" thread?
    There's the "someone should kop this" thread which is kind of like it but it's posting good finds rather than "if anybody see's this please let me know."

    Would it be redundant to make a thread like that, the WTB listings rarely seem to get noticed/solved. Some designers don't really have dedicated threads to ask in, I also don't know how Fok would feel about a thread dedicated to listings that would likely be from other outlets (although that's largely what the "someone should kop thread" is).

    Looks like a gq readers wet dream come true. Everyone looked uncomfortable as fuck in their clothes.

    And how come city of gentleman guy wasn't invited?! Not stylecon without him.

    Yeah, 90% chance it would be like the old "ask a question, get an answer" thread where everybody asked and nobody answered.

    I don't know whether that style has a particular name - it looks like a beret / cap. It may well be made for Lemaire (possibly by someone like Laulhere). You could try one of these: http://www.chapellerie-traclet.com/en/laulhere/6224-casquette-gavroche-gloria-.html

    Shouldn't he be Alpha-A then? or does the M stand for Mucho.

    Maybe we should play a game "Which is these guys is @jet ?"

    I dunno. Trunk shows are fun, a bit raucous. Things like Pitti are like Vegas. Fun for about 48 hours, and then you are pretty spent. This "convention" looks like a support group. I've never seen a non-depressing support group. It doesn't help that they are in sterile, corporate space that is completely devoid of personality. And the choice of music and testimonials, especially the opener, were really poor if you want to market your event as something where much fun is to be had.
