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.

    Cheers,

    Some descriptions sellers have are funny. I recall a description for leather gloves saying something in the lines of "you can get away with murder like OJ Simpson". Some eBay feedback are funny too.

    The BBC docu and Dior & I are def cool. The latter is on Netflix in case anyone is curious. Sucks you can't use proxy anymore, but oh well.

    1) He lives vicariously through himself.

    2) He once had an awkward moment, just to see how it feels.

    3) When he drives a new car off the lot, it increases in value.

    4) When it is raining, it is because he is thinking of something sad.

    5) His shirts never wrinkle.

    6) He is left-handed and right-handed.

    7) If he were to mail a letter without postage, it would still get there.

    8) The police often question him just because they find him interesting.

    9) His blood smells like cologne.

    10) On every continent in the world, there is a sandwich named after him. His hands feel like rich brown suede.

    11) Cuba imports cigars from him. Mosquitos refuse to bite him purely out of respect. In museums, he is allowed to touch the art.

    12) His business card simply says “I’ll call you.”

    13) He has won the lifetime achievement award, twice.

    14) If he were to punch you in the face, you would have to fight off the urge to thank him.

    15) He bowls overhand.

    16) He is fluent in all languages, including three that he only speaks.

    17) He tips an astonishing 100%.

    18) Once while sailing around the world, he discovered a short cut.

    19) Panhandlers give him money.

    20) His passport requires no photograph.

    Thanks for linking to this. I'm normally a great admirer of Dries' work but I don't like this jacket much. As a women's it's ok I guess. The Alexander Wang and Sterling Ruby ones are both much better. Also, the Helmut Lang one was obviously customised by Helmut Lang himself (not "Helmut Lang" the commercial label), making this maybe the last opportunity to get a brandnew statement piece done by the man himself. Would be great if one or other of those jackets went to SF'ers so we'd see them in the wild but I'm not holding my breath as far as the price range of the final bids is concerned... :-/

    Got this to my Yoox-Italy-registered e-mail address yesterday (for now only in Italy apparently).

    It's a prepaid MasterCard that will credit 5 per cent payback on all Yoox purchases.

    Had been wondering when Yoox would begin getting into credit-card partnerships...

    Asked for sizing info on a lark. Their reply was men's size medium is a 40. Lol. Don't they know they need to give shoulder, sleeve, waist, length, chest measurements to the nearest mm??! I haven't even asked about the zippers!

    So it's even worse (for me). I thought medium = 48 (US38).

    Oh well...

    I got some replacement laces from TZ Laces on Amazon for my COS (CP wannabe) sneakers and my Aldens. Lots of different sizes, good quality, same as what you'd find on real CPs

    I liked the sf instagram a lot more when it was traveling between users as opposed to pictures tagged with #sprezzatura

    I like both (those sprezz guys are SF members), but have been wanting to start our traveling account again - but seriously, some of you guys take worse pictures than Fok does.

    Even so, let's do it. Want to host? Get at me, or at @StyleforumRobot .
