    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.

    I don't have the shirts literally drycleaned. I just have them laundered and pressed at the cleaners. I put a premium on my free time so for me it's worth it to have somebody else my shirts for me.

    I remember reading somewhere that among compulsive shoppers, the rush comes more from the process of shopping than from actual ownership.

    RE: Yoox -- You can get some really good deals if you buy past-season stuff (right now, FW). Otherwise, meh.

    it depends on the brands you're interested in. my tastes just happen to align with the stuff yoox tends to stock most often (like, euro/minimal/blazery things)

    I would say that when I 1. decided to only buy from a couple brands and 2. only wear what I really really enjoy, this fashion thing has become a lot more fun and enjoyable to me. These days I spend maybe a week looking and asking around for each piece I buy and when I do receive it I just look at it for about a day and compare to what I have, if I REALLY like it then I keep. I can honestly say I have maybe 2 or 3 things I am selling and I will be done for the foreseeable future. I don't like having too many options, I like great things in small numbers. I have in rotation a total of 50 pieces (with another 45 just for certain occasions) that I won't ever give up. Might sound farfetched or romanticized but I truly think I can do it. I am pretty stubborn and hard headed though :satisfied:

    Maison Martin Margiela- General Clothing/Accessories/Footwear (2 Lanvin pieces-shirt and low tops as exception)
    Orlebar Brown- Anything Beachwear
    Sunspel- Q14 Deep V-Necks/Sleepwear

    Feels good

    Just got the Bourne/ma-1 in. Awesome jacket, though I didn't realize it would be so light. (No worries though, it's kinda exactly what I need as the weather starts to turn.) Now I just need a leather to fill the pulsating void in my closet. (Or I need to make sure that my apartment isn't built atop ancient Indian burial grounds...)

    Belated, but to echo px4: eid-e shoma mubarak, Persian bro(s).

    Yeah I am with you on the brands thing, although not quite as devoted to one. But it's nice to figure out what works and stick with it. For me it's Epaulet for suits, trousers, and casual shirts. Moderntailor for dress shirts. Uniqlo for "basics." And SNS Herning for knits.

    Footwear is all over the place though. Hrm.

    you can't look at clothing as an endeavor to build the 'perfect' closet. you need to accept that there's always going to be things that will add to your line up... it's just part of the journey (as cliched and stupid as that sounds).

    Your devotion to hate on whatever I do is impressive, I'll give you that.
    If I comment something positive (for example about a fit of yours) you promptly ignore it, but if it's something that if you twist it fits into your perceived idea of me as a scumbag, then you'll be sure to tell everyone about it.

    I'm fairly sure you won't believe me, or ever think positive of me for that matter (why that is I don't know), but honestly I was just trying to help/give a suggestion to whoever it was who commented about the blue dries-stuff

    I don't think you're a scumbag, you honestly just annoy me and I am a dick about it and that's totally my flaw.

    And I'm sorry, but that was advertising and it's not cool.
