    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.

    Quote of the year from an online publication...

    "Carol Christian Poell, an Austrian designer who bears many similarities to Martin Margiela with his transforming garments that can be worn more than 5 different ways."

    Wore my painted Blue Blue Japan Sashiko jacket yesterday. Looked, imo, and that of many others who should know, really awesome. Makes for a very graphic, color blocked, effect. Definitely something to wear with white high top sneakers and jeans for full effect. May be one of the outfits I may need to put on WAYWT. I understand more and more Margiela's interest in painting over everything. Really does give it a new life.

    See posted link. I'd say the most current store for fashion right now is the broken arm (Jacquemus with Rafdidas, Ervell, Lemaire, Cédric Charlier, whatever cool younger girls wear, some boy stuff too), these fucking hype fiends also have a coffee shop with some bio bread or whatever.

    I also like beaucoup (upstairs barnamed démon) for drinks, half-Japanese guy there is a really commited barman and he wears like Yohji and Rick to work.

    Close I think I hit 10 months, I started bulking last year, so I decided not to buy anything expect the most necessary until I was done cutting after the bulk, bought a pair of sneakers, OB trunks they were to cheap to pass up (don't fit :ember: ) and a pair of LVC last year and a pair of chinos last week, my ass doesn't fit in my other chinos otherwise nothing.




    I would add Carven, Kitsune and Surface 2 Air to the list.

    Cantonese Chinese weddings are a weird haze of Louis the 13th, LV print bags and Heineken. Oh, and yellow gold Rolexes.

    Also, Cantonese sounds awful.

    Cantonese sounds better than Mandarin in my opinion, but I find that the latter is much more useful in Vancouver

    Don't like the sound of Cantonese but I endure it for delicious dimsum.

    Come on now. Surely it must depend on the context. English would sound terrible if judged from a bogan. Ya know?

    Wait, really? Vancouver is my hometown and I speak Cantonese. Everyone in Vancouver is from Hong Kong, and everywhere I go, the Chinese people I meet speak Cantonese. I rarely bump into someone who prefers to speak in Mandarin.
