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.

    Maybe I'm clueless as to how the Paris and Milan fashion show system works, but it doesn't seem to make much financial sense for smaller niche-y labels to show there, unless it's to make a power move into the luxe-label market. This goes double (triple?) for brands based in the US or Japan, whose own home markets are big and wealthy. Same goes if the brand has its own webshop.

    What is the best possible outcome for a small brand at these shows? A bigger buy from existing retailers, gaining a handful of new ones, and a little pic and write-up on esquire.com? Obviously, it's good to have access to int'l buyers and press, but showing amongst hundreds of other brands seems like a great way to get lost in the shuffle. Unless your clothes are coveted enough for the brand owners to call the shots, the buyers have all the power and can rope you into ridiculous terms and timelines.

    It seems like a pretty major risk for any brand without a suitcase full of cash.

    Because LA can't be the Mecca for everything, they got Hollywood already. Move to Milan. - rick owens

    re Kanye.. ^ my buddy saw the NYC show just two days ago and said it was pretty cool... except for the 30 minutes he went off bitching about Nike and Fendi and leather jogging pants and how much of a genius he is.

    Had the chance to check out a COS store in person today and there's some good stuff to be had. Hidden placket shirt was super see through unfortunately. Have my eye on a few things when sales start.

    Also happened to come across an Aitor Throup exhibit. Amazing attention to detail on each piece. Construction felt top notch too, definitely not something you need to worry about "babying." Managed to sneak a few pics, will share them when I get to a computer.

    Serves you right for not collecting your payment in bitcoins, newb!



    I have trouble envisioning you and Noctone wearing the same size.

    Congratualtions! Depending on the time of day and the shade of the moon they're either worth $.25 or $25,000
