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.

    Huh? I'd think making a case regarding harassment should be quite do-able, keeping in mind I am not licensed to practice law in California (or anywhere else).

    Who the fuck are you anyway? Like I give a fuck if you're a lawyer or not, if this is what you are implying.

    I am primarily interested in the garments themselves. Ot me, they are the objects of interest. That's always been my focus, and I am sure that streetstyle blogging has deadened 99% of my remaining interest in how people put things together, especially considering that everyone photographed fits neatly into some archetype of "attractive". That the photographs are taken in a uniform way really doesn't hel things at all.

    i know people were talking about this elsewhere, think in one of the pitti threads, so figured i'd post. it's about the euro being so low but european goods not really being any cheaper in the US: http://abcnews.go.com/Business/wireStory/american-shoppers-benefit-euros-drop-28411966

    How many times do we need to see the same 10 guys and what they're wearing throughout 3 weeks of fashion weeks and shows? My biggest issue with these slideshows is that after a little bit, it's all high fives and shooting the same buddies over and over again. Nothing wrong with being buddies... but there's a point where the "photographer eye" is supplanted by the need to shoot the same guys because, well they expect that from him, and I'm sure he feels that he owes them to. There's thousands of dudes going through Pitti - we need those photographers who made it to keep a fresh eye.

    Tommy Ton admittedly mostly shoots peacocky fashion insiders, but I don't know ... I think this stuff is more enjoyable when you don't take it necessarily as direction on how you should dress, but rather as inspiration on what's going on in the fashion world and how some people are having fun with clothes. A lot of what Bill Cunningham shoots is very peacocky -- even in a Pitti Uomo way -- but his reports are also really fun to watch. If you take Cunningham's reports as "here are people who are the epitome of style" then yea -- it kind of deflates the whole thing. But I don't think this stuff is meant to be viewed as that.

    i like that pic of the old asian dude wearing black supergas and a down vest under a simple blue jacket. so much hinges on attitude. he's just walking down the street minding his own business. can't stand try hard outfits, calculated nonchalance, or that little smirk so many of these dudes have.

    ^ he's layering a blazer over a coat.

    But isn't that the default, especially at fashion week? I'm sure no one's dressing just to be comfortable.
