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.

    yeah the photos are good. I once lived on the Navajo reservation (long story...) and basically, they take offense to everything remotely related to them, and they probably should. They don't get any financial benefit from any of that stuff either, so they should talk about it. What people do with a lot of their motifs and stuff, pretty tacky.

    Chris Rock: Let's face it. White people can't box. Black people box better. Puerto Ricans... even better. It seems the lower you go on the social ladder, the better the boxer. If there's a Puerto Rican who is a good boxer, there's a Native American waiting to kick his ass.

    long been popular in Japan, goes hand in hand with the Amekaji thing. I haven't really thought about it terribly deeply, but I guess at the beginner styleforummer level where somebody may go get a flannel, khakis or dry denim, some boots, then some traditional outerwear for when it's colder - that is basic Japanese Amekaji circa 1997, it was huge:

    The next level I guess, guys who have EG, thom browne, any of those chambray shirts with the mix-match carpenter pockets, the more obscure American shoes that became popular in recent years - that is 'neo-Amekaji'

    regular 'Amekaji' can be done by anyone and refers to a lot of things, and is supposed to be hard to mess up. Neo-Amekaji is the stuff of ridicule and quite often looks silly. :eek:

    really like these Visvim pants I bought, I'm gonna pay closer attention the brand. The prices are pretty unreasonable for a lot of stuff, tho

    $8000 for a leather, $600 pants, and $2000 for a down coat is insane

    I met him at the Sendai store last week, didn't know who he was until my friend who works there told me. Seemed like a very down to earth dude with a very expensive clothing line

    my friend knit me a wool hat, in shape of cube. well it's not difficult, but hopefully it's got a nice 3d eye trickery to it. apparently is huge, and awaiting me in the warmth of the desert

    edit: soft wooly warmth :inlove:

    Haha, yes, it is. Good eye. It's a personal favorite as well, though probably second to Stolen Kisses. (I've also totally tried to dress like the 1960's JPL, but without any luck. That would probably require more Parisian thrift stores than the ones you find around here).
    :foo:
