    Hate to shit up the thread, but whether the new system is beneficial may depend on who you ask. "powersellers" may be more successful because they have more opportunities to bump threads than non-paying members under the new system, so their items are on the front page much more than everyone else. This is without any additional cost to them, so their per item sale price would also be higher.

    From my experience, my items fly off the front page within a few hours from bumps from "powersellers" or new items. Before, it would be front page for at least a day.

    I just dislike the fact that stuff is getting bumped without getting dropped. There will be more and more items not one wants being bumped at prices that don't sell, because sellers aren't required to "pay" for a bump.

    Also, what is the name of the piece of fabric you see at just below the collars on some mac coats? Throat latch?

    I must stop buying shoes. Even though i only purchased a handful this year, I can see my wardrobe suffering as a result. No change up in what I wear and the main reason is I don't enjoy spending time at the tailor so things can fit my small frame. I wear about three bottoms and a few colored tees. Suppose this fall I make a few trips to her so she can fix some shirts and work on some pants. I just have boring taste in all trousers and shirting. My main draw is shoes and outerwear. Tried to get my knitwear on but the only pieces that draw me in are about $500 starting price besides the ervell pocket sweater but once again fit rears its ugly head and I fear that the sleeves are going to bunch all over the place.

    Will one of those S/S Geller knits though.

    P.S. Guys I do not own a cardigan oh noes :(

    with estimated price increases this may be a better option for winter. and linen/silk for summer. NCC - no cotton club !

    My wardrobe has gotten progressively smaller. It now consists of

    1 all saints leather
    3 uniqlo hoodies
    1 gieves and hawkes cardigan
    2 evisu flannels
    1 polo denim shirt
    1 pair of uniqlo jeans
    2 all saints boots
    1 jil sander bluchers
    Like 30 or 40 of the exact same uniqlo T shirt.

    I'm not so sure. Its kind of a crescent shaped piece, saw it on a margiela jacket but can't find it now.

    Here's a picture:

    It's funny how once you spot small flaws in an outfit, especially suiting/MC, you can hardly bare to look at it. It's all you see.

    Edit: did I say funny? I mean maddeningly infuriating.
