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.

    re: prices, BoF did a piece a couple years ago looking very broadly at the different factors involved. prices of materials have been going up (and will continue to), labor costs have risen, brands are inflating prices to cushion their margins since consumers expect deals and many don't buy until sale, and then brands are also inflating prices basically for marketing reasons (exclusivity breeds desire). Last but not least, people keep buying shit, even as prices go up. (I'm sure there's some sort of argument in there that as the 1% gain a greater share of income they're also buying more luxury/designer goods.) sure there's other stuff involved too. kinda interesting: http://www.businessoffashion.com/20...-prices-of-designer-goods-rising-so-fast.html

    Baltimore is just now catching up to this edgy and ultra-modern aesthetic.

    ^Whatever, @BrettChaotix was on that tip plus kopping goth-y leathers years ago. And those MICA kids have got to be killing normcore right about now.

    Another throwback--just today received an ebay'd pair of Nom de Guerre jeans. Fuck your raw edged textured knit wool/linen trousers, these are fantastic.

    the writing for the "Ryan Seacrest Distinction" collection is the most cliched stuff i've heard in a minute

    i just heard an ad where he said it was classic with a modern twist

    RFT: Visvim calling their collections "dissertations" is so corny.

    As someone who has had the misfortune of reading several and actually writing one, why anyone would want to appropriate the term "dissertation" is beyond me.

    Maybe they're suggesting that their clothes were put together using dubious methods and lots of second hand materials.

    And that they had to spend a week going back and forth over formatting with some useless university office.
