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.

    That's not really a showdown. More like a massacre.

    Do you live in the 'burbs by chance?

    On a casual stroll in most major cities, you'll come across at least one person who wouldn't look out of place in the SWD waywt thread

    It's hilarious how many of those people have been banned from sufu over the years (about a third). Best mods ever.

    I live in Chicago and even work (sometimes, slow season atm) on Michigan Ave. I also attend art school downtown.

    It's not that there aren't well-dressed people; it's that I don't really see stuff that SW&D likes.

    Lots of bro fashion on the mag. mile: distressed designer jeans and peacoats paired with running shoes. For women, tucked tights and jeans into brown leather boots.

    Maybe it's just my city.

    The number is just in the single digits. Majority of the people in all three still post or lurk, others moved on to other things.

    I recently tried on a pair of Balenciaga pants at the boutique in NYC, and the experience was a little disheartening. The fit was mostly alright, but the fabric kind of bunched up in a weird way around the thigh when I moved around in them. The fabric also felt really thin, a bit rough, and generally cheap/poor quality. Has anyone had this experience with their stuff recently or in the past? It seemed a bit odd, given the label's reputation. Also, I might sell all of my possessions and take up the sitar.
