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.

    Any graphic designers out there want to take on some rather unusual work? Can't pay much, but can pay something.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    Nice look for some people, a little bit too assholish on me, especially since I currently have a mustache.

    BTW I got a Schneiders grey-green long jacket today, I believe that's totally your kind of thing. I think you're pretty tall and size 52+, my friend's father wears a lot of that stuff and he's 2 meters burly Russian. On me the size 44 is sorta Yohji (looks good) but this is made for big guys.

    I've been meaning too all fall, but I think I'll try and grab a Larose one in the next week or two. Ideally something like navy and not black though

    Sounds promising. Any pics of the jacket you got? My only possible issue is that it comes across as too Bavarian/trad, since I´m living in the Alpine region these days...

    Some good beret looks in recent EG lookbooks, but I'd look too much like my father-in-law (habitual beret wearer) for my wife's comfort.

    how complicated would it be for a tailor to change out a zipper? Thinking about switching to a double-zipper on a sweatshirt. One-way zippers just don't make any sense...

    I think I've reached house chilling nirvana; W+H cabin fleece robe, Ibex merino wool baselayer tights and longsleeve, and merino wool socks.

    What are the connotations of berets in the UK? I feel like in the US you're either a corny francophile or a grizzled vet.

    Always dug how John Barth wore a boina.

    I feel like there was a recent story on here that it's a pain in the ass

    My deep winter house wardrobe is a giant calf-length Yohji cardigan over Nike tech knit sweat suit. And Biki-logs.

    I wore a beret in the 90s. I also had a convertible ('64 Corvair) so it kept the grungy long hair in place. My friends made fun of me.

    Now I have this oversized 30s Gatsby cap which kind of has a beret vibe but with a visor. It's also my Stevie Wonder 70s funk hat. I was wearing it to the AZ Stylefarmer meet-up last weekend.

    I thought about it since and I do think it's probably a pain, and not that cheap to get done. Too bad because I've found my grail (read: extremely boring) black bomber sweatshirt. Guess I'm not just about that double-zipper life

    I think they've probably lost strong connotations over here, but used to have the want to be an artist/revolutionary association.

    To anyone that still cares, the junya dinkelacker arrived and fits perfect. So sizing on the shoe is uk sizing. Size s is 8, size m is 9 and size l is 10.

    Cost me a few hundred to learn that but what can you do..

    Anyone have any experience with Nanamica? How's the quality/fit on their coats? Kind of interested in one of the chesterfield coats
