    Are you talking about the text moving over into the grey/blue avatar area? That was happening to me earlier but it seems to have fixed itself.

    Which part?

    Also, if you want to lift your hold on withdraw cap, you also have to authenticate a credit card + billing address or something. That may also play a role... not sure.

    I had a big customs bill a couple 3 years ago that I never paid and I just got a new cc where in the welcome letter they stated my credit score was 810 (0).

    Am I the only one who dislikes how in-your-face Thom Browne's branding is?

    I doubt it, but the whole look is (was) very distinct and in-your-face in the first place so I find it fitting and pretty harmless.

    If you mean the tags on the shirts they're long enough that they really need to be worn tucked, and the rise on his pants is high enough that the tags will always be covered.

    If you're talking about the red white and blue grosgrain trim on shoe pulls and sleeve cuffs I just think it's a fun cheeky touch.

    Anybody that notices you're wearing a Thom Browne suit will know that sooner from the proportions than the trim in your functional cuffs

    Yeah, I posted that because I saw those TB shoes that you posted, and thought that the shoe pulls just looked way out of place. All of the fit pics that I've seen of TB shirts posted on SF style it untucked with the shirt tags showing.

    I have a pretty awesome pair of TB shorts with the tricolor grosgrain strips on the waistband, but they don't look ut of place on the shorts due to the placement, color, and rise. But the shoe pulls and the shirt tags, man. It just looks a bit tacky to me is all, although I see where your rebuttal is coming from.

    I really dig Thom Browne's proportions, though.

    I'm kinda with you, j, on the branding. I don't mind a little of that, but I wish it were a bit more discreet. And I think his proportions almost serve as their own branding. When I see stuff worn as TB intended I have no doubt who the designer is, whether or not there's a red-white-and-blue grossgrain tab on it.

    I love it. Someone posted a slew of street shot detail pictures of people wearing Thom Browne pieces with the strip on display as a knock against Thom. I found it beautiful in its playfulness and goofy aesthetic. reminded me of his old campaigns with all the guys holding balloons on the curb.
