1. I'd like to announce that animated avatars are now available again. You'll have to reload, but they are once more possible.

    We've been doing a ton of work behind the scenes. The site load speed was already under 1/2 of what Huddler's was, on average, and we installed cloudflare, which means that the site should be even faster. A ton more will go on in the weeks and months to come, and some things will be more visibile, and some less.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    celadon brings to mind nothing but celadon city. /nerd alert

    favorite loungewear = these white rlpl sweatpants that our good old andyliu sold to about 350 ppl a year or two ago on b&s no joke. but i did just get a pair of black spurr moto-ish sweatpants w/ zips. was gonna post on your sweatpant discussion, but couldn't get a good pic that didn't have taylor lautner in them lol. thinkin bout them + boots + toj moto when doing errands...

    also, i very much recognize that they are not the pinnacle of fashion, nor the clothes towards which most should aspire, but when did w+h replace clarks and j crew as the brand that avant-garde folk ridicule? :/

    Am I selling a shirt? Huh. I think you are referring to the knit? Something like this: [​IMG] Sorry for nip exposure Also, I meant to say that there is something inherently irritating about things that are unobjectionable, but I don't have the energy to elaborate. Too winded from cleaning up dust bunnies !!

    I see, that makes sense. I was surprised that you would consider me well-dressed, since I tend to wear disgusting, ill-matched rags.

    Anyway, I'm running an experiment right now to see if Uniqlo heat-tech garments will dry in <3 hours. Let's pray the answer is yes!

    The longjohns are fine, the tnecks are nice looking but sweat like a mother. It's stupid. Basically makes you sweat to stay warm. I wear them sometimes, but I usually end up infuriated by it. Get something with natural fibers instead.

    speak of the devil...

    if you're looking for under garments that wont be showing, can't go wrong with merino base layers from more technical brands...

    granted i am a rock climber and that is a biased opinion

    The price is not bad for under shirts. IIRC 19.99 for long sleeves.
    Got some J+ pieces instead, there were some cute Azns at the store at the time.
