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.

    wool, silk, etc. are all protein fiber, dr.

    well not very difficult to accomplish !
    don't say that, i can't afford to believe you.

    prices at forward seem decent, esp if you use the first time buyer discount

    and now i am back to skirt

    Don't buy sh's explanation of "silk as protein" because they'd label it that way. If anything, there's been a bit in the news lately of designers using milk protein for fabric blends. Penn & Teller even interviewed this German designer about it on their show a few weeks back.

    I agree with almost everything here, most fashion blogs are exactly what you're saying. There are, of course, a few exceptions here and there. It's why I largely read fashion blogs that consider themselves 'feminist' - they tend to offer a little more insight than the typical "HYPE SWAG STEEZ #menswear" tumblr thing. If you're honestly interested I'll pm you some links.

    As for the self-justifying thing, I think that in an ideal world you'd be right. There should be nothing shameful about having an interest in fashion, clothes, etc. But I do think a lot of people, guys especially, do feel some shame about it. Fuuma seems to really get this, he has a few old posts about workwear and masking an interest in clothes with bullshit. It's not limited to guys, though. I think there's a general perception that Fashion is just pretty shit for dumb girls and queers. TBH I would love to just say fuck the haters and go on liking clothes the way I do, but there's a larger problem of people trivializing things that are traditionally feminine. Making apologies or justification might be playing into that mindset, but IMO it's necessary for the time being.

    And please note how that blog post has shaped our discourse, at least temporarily.

    I think the stark is really popular every year and I'm sure will continue to be. There's no chunky knit that comes close to matching its unique look, quality, and affordability combination. I don't think it's hype
