    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.

    whodini - the reason is always "strategy." that's how u justify shit that doesn't make short term financial sense. if 2 million a year or some shit in capital leases doesn't discourage you i don't know what will.

    Speaking of industry shit, what is going on with Gibo and losing their contracts? First V&R, now MJ Collection. Haven't seen Chalayan in a while so I don't know about that...

    Are they just too expensive/slow/small? Bummer because the quality slide is apparent. [​IMG]

    blah Marc Jacobs mens mainline actually looked sort of interesting for S/S 12. Can't say the same for V&R though.

    I just thought the "strategy" would have happened like... three years ago? when premium denim was already on a downswing. But maybe they're getting advice from Nokia's people. Makes sense. Wonder how APC's shop is doing.

    Why is Nudies opening up a Melrose flagship considering the economy, saturated denim market, their already-healthy distribution throughout LA, etc. ?

    They seem to be repositioning themselves as a fashion company, but much more accessible than Acne, Filippa K., etc... In other words, douche-easy, sort of like an upscale Lucky. I could see it working.

    They have enough distribution that even my BJJ trainer wants a pair, and LA will always have a large audience for conspicuously branded, easy to wear clothing at high, but not too high, prices.

    And self stores give companies a way to control their brand image.

    It's pretty hard not to look good playing in a jazz band. Saw a band last night, ill fitting suits all around. Didn't matter once they started jamming.

    The only times I ever got compliments from women on my denim were when I was wearing a pair of Nudies. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I've seen them twice in the wild (in Philly), not including looking down while wearing them. Re: Man of Moods, I really like my silk/tensile/cotton u-neck. Really wanted the half-sleeve in red when Blue Owl was selling off back stock, but someone barely beat me to it. [​IMG] I almost never wear white clothing. It stays white for maybe three wears on me.

    My CK Collection shirt shrank to the point that it's a bit too tight in the chest (I still get shocked when things are too small for me), guess that's what $25 gets you

MY NUDIES ARE HELLA MINT. here's the evidence: http://www.superfuture.com/supertalk...ad.php?t=32224

    You aren't missing out/people will figure that out themselves and put theirs on B&S.

    I'm talking about Nokia (I mean, Samsung) going bankrupt for putting money in the wrong places.

    IMO nokia is still in the game and still deserves to be a player. they pass the mobb deep "shook test." they still got market share and they're dominating low end phones. ok so right now people are trying to make the strongest phone but who says that will make sense 10 years from now? might just push shit to cloud in 10 years like the current computer situation.
