    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.

    I was just reading about a designer that started around early 1980s around when the Antwerp 6 were graduating. He claimed to be the first american designer in paris, before rick owens and blah blah started to come. He works in really limited quanitities (I think 500 pieces total each season, and 1 to 15 pieces per model) and collaborates especially with independent italian workshop type mills.

    anybody know who i'm talking about? i forgot to bookmark and i can't find who it is i'm thinking of.

    its pretty easy to do it yourself
    I know. I don't have anything in terms of tools with me at the moment. Is an easy and quick enough fix i could probably call a bunch of nearby shops and say "i have all the parts, just need someone to install it quickly for $75-100". Someone will bite. I'd consider it if i had all my shit i left in florida.

    I think that Gary Drinkwater knows him. If you, or any other SF guys, are in Cambridge, you should visit Gary at his store just for the stories. Before opening his own store, he was a Louis during its heyday, and then at Stonestreets when it was a Cambridge institution (RIP), and he has met and known all sorts of people in the fashion community, and has interesting insights. Friendly guy too, and he has been a member of SF for a long time.

    Robert, I understood indesertum's post perfectly without your grammar corrections. You're not clever or funny.

    I'm sure he knows him. Small was connected with the Boston tailored garment scene of which Louis is one of the epicenters.

    Damn, I was all set to pull the trigger on a pair of Alden AF88 but I was just informed it'd be like 6-7 months before they'd get more in stock in my size.

    Any have any recommendations for a similar boot (brown, commando sole) I might scope out?

    When did burgundy become a popular and widely accepted (on the internets) color all of a sudden?

    I really dislike the direction they're going now. They've completely jumped on the workwear bandwagon. The amount of stuff I actually like there now is about the amount of womenswear they used to have a year or two ago
