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 both ballsy, and a little stupid. That said, I can understand that they probably get frustrated, and made this not excellent public announcement.

    I never understood Hermes. I actually have Hermes riding gear (what they originally made), and it's quite good, but I never got how a store that sold saddles became a super high end luxary good store.

    That Faust op-ed is hilariously terrible. It's about as prosaic as you would expect from a high school sophomore cribbing Cliff's Notes to write a book report, and has almost as much intellectual rigor as the steaming pile of shit my dog dropped on the ground a couple hours ago. He and his coterie of uninviting, pretentious pricks are way more dangerous to the continued viability of the avant-garde corner of the fashion world than grailed could ever hope to be.

    e: I noticed sz-mag isn't optimized for mobile viewing and I'd bet dollars to donuts that was a very intentional choice by Faust

    I guess not much has changed for me since the 80's.

    How many pairs of shoes do you guys have? I'm curious because I feel like I have too many, yet at the same time, not enough.

    @LA Guy I imagine that they made it public to discourage email and phone contacts.

    As an Alden dealer, I can tell you that we get at least a half-dozen calls each day asking what Ravello & Whiskey styles we have in stock (which is none). Alden of Madison must get many times that, and it probably takes a significant amount of their working day to respond to all of this.

    Hey Mike,

    Do you have any Whiskey styles that you can hook me up with, man?

    jk.

    I understand, but it still sounds like a bit of a knee jerk reaction. I imagine that they are under stress, like a lot of retailers, and it's easy to sorta lash out a bit like this, with the message being "Hey, be a good customer, that's who we hook up." This is pure speculation, but it would not be an unpredented move, just based on the messages I've seen other retailers putting out. It's understandable, but not advisable, imo.
