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,

    you are at the peak, you will revert to caring a bit less about all that stuff down the line but in an educated way if that makes sense...in no way will you be back at square one i like imperfect fits like tees, jeans etc it's more interesting to me than stuff being super slim and tight
    I agree. A few years back I was obsessed with the fit of each individual piece, but over time I have learned to focus my attention more evenly to other areas. In the past when I would try on a shirt I would expect it to match my "ideal fit". Anything less than this ideal would be rejected. But I have come to realize that any fit (tight or loose) can look good if combined/styled with the right other pieces. Recently I bought the same shirt twice in 2 different sizes for this very reason! Think about the whole rather than evaluating each piece in isolation.

    lands end is OG though, founded in 63 or something. if anything, j crew ripped off lands end.
    Lands End is Ameri-trash for people who'll be dying soon (or are already dead). Go look at the products on their web site. Especially take a look at their women's jeans-- the majority are literally "mom jeans". Even JCrew is not this bad! The only offerings from Lands End that look like JCrew is their Canvas line. But Canvas is a new line-- JCrew has been doing this look for far longer! Thus while neither company is very original, Lands End is slow and behind the times. But dead people don't like change, so Lands End likely serves their customers well.

    While were on the topic, why the hell am I getting mailed Lands End and LL Bean catalogues? Is this someone's idea of a sick joke?

    I just checked my Gmail, and it had a Vineyard Vines ad at the bottom of the page. [​IMG]

    Also, what kind of hair wax do y'all use?

    'Wax' is too short to search for using the search function (and it seems like it ignores it if you combine it with other terms), and the Health & Body sub-forum appears to be 100% special flower threads. [​IMG]


    i rinse my hair thoroughly with water, but don't shampoo

    its always waxy and looks cool lol.

    premium cotton ones? Or something else? I have been wearing the latter, they're perfect for me. (and apparently everyone else too, they're hard as fuck to find in size XL in the white two-pack....)

    oh shit sons, ya boy snowman met some interesting vancouverites this easter weekend.

    somehow they are within the fam..

    dude was wearing a screenprinted shirt + reigning champ stuff and i knew i had to ask since he said he does the tees himself. i kinda went on a whim and asked if he knew about the clothing scene out there and he was surprised/happy to see i was wearing a w+h oxford ([​IMG] ...YEAH I STILL WEAR THE DUB AYCHE once and a while) anyways his name is brian, and hes buddies with wings horns/rodan gray/reigning champ dudes, even knows ppl at livestock(for you toronto guys)

    cool conversation, i was pretty excited to meet someone who had been to the factories where the stuff is made...awesome feeling. he said he gets most stuff at cost and the hoodies are like 20 bucks a pop[​IMG]

    nothing will ever be perfect unless you have it made for you.
