    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.

    How's the 4?



    Yes and details.


    It has just left Sweden. [​IMG] I'll let you know in another week or so for sure.

    How much do you guys pay for GQ/Details? To get it here it's a month late, half a year out of season and costs US$15! I used to get GQ regularly but have barely touched it this year, except for the issue with January [​IMG] .

    shit. the more i check out goth ninja brands out in person the more i'm attracted to them. they really are beautiful pieces of clothing and i think they look fantastic if done right. i really don't like black, but damn they look so good. so much detail, really nice soft fabrics, excellent construction (the ma+ shirts i've seen had really nice single needle construction).

    -_- goth ninja... tempting aesthetic.


    It's not all bad, dude.

    Pinoy barely posts fits but he's all about goth ninja attire and manages to look like a human being in the process instead of a displaced balding beatnik.

    [​IMG] I want to start with ann d and rick owens basics, but i dont think they particularly go well with blue jeans or chinos. I dunno how to incorporate. I think MMM knits are a lot more versatile. Will probably start there. I don't want to go full goth. I just really like the clothing.

    Goth Ninja head-to-toe is no more contrived then workwear head-to-toe. I'd say less since the "goth ninja" aesthetic is not directly based on an era or culture.

    I'll concede that some people have the swagger and lifestlye to do head-to-toe.

    More retailers should shell out booze for browsing customers. It's the American way.

    Ralph Lauren in Chevy Chase has some impressive whiskeys but it's generally only for Purple or Black label MTM customers.

    I think it's important not to put the "artisan brands" (Carpe, Ma+, LUC, etc) in the same basket as others. For example Demeulemeester is quite different and so is Rick Owens or Carol Christian Poell. Some of these are not even that obsessed with black (think MA+, LUC etc) some stores just chose to focus on these colours.

    You could build a beautiful and colourful wardrobe out of LUC and MA+ without much black in it.

    Rick Owens requires a certain fascination with black, dirty greys and dirty browns while Ann is all about the sharply contrasted black&white.

    You could also build a nice, crisp wardrobe out of MMM, Branquinho and Schneider w. some Demeulemeester peppered in for some "edge".

    While I haven't read either in awhile, I prefer British GQ over the American GQ. Much more substance IMO

    i prefer the higher picture to text ratio of US gq.
