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.

    GQ is a joke, I can't stand how in any given spread 4 out of 5 fits will comprise the use of a tie.

    Nobody besides jkissi wears that shit for casual use.

    Do alot of people on this site read GQ? The one time I read it on a flight it had ads (alot) for Sperry Topsiders, Uniqlo etc. Also a bunch of ways on how to be a "man's man" and all other cringeworthy bullshit.

    I really like hoodies, cardigans, and the like, but hate how the material usually bunches up and juts out in the front near the bottom when you sit down.

    ^there are always exceptions of course

    Oxnard- Agreed, I almost never instakop and I wasn't saying geller and others are hype just that the line in general and select pieces do get super hyped. There are wonderful poell pieces I'd love to have for instance but I think people who generally do not know what they are doing hastily cop like you said without any calculations.


    Hype is a very dangerous beast, it shows up everywhere, hell its on Styleforum as much as Sufu and SZ, the biggest difference is that the brands hyped on Styleforum tend to be less expensive and so bad kops aren't as regrettable. What boggles me is the lifestyle of some of the people who have such high turn around of pieces. Poell is a great example, the line produces some beautiful pieces, however, regardless of how much money I ever have, I cannot fathom being comfortable with spending two grand on a pair of pants made out of paper that could fall apart at any given moment.

    No, SF's B/S is mostly full of cheap stuff that people realize they're unsatisfied with (JCrew)

    This is why I love two-way zippers.

    There is definitely plenty of hype on here as well and until people are able to see and try things on in person as well as go through the trial and error phase it'll only conitnue since they rely on others for information.

    Jcrew is merely a steppting stone or a gateway like apc. I only have a few apc pieces that I continue to use.

    I've realized that all I really need is a whole lot of hanes v-neck undershirts. I wear these pretty much 5 days a week. Real easy.

    Most hoodies seem to give me a "pot belly" even when I'm standing up.

    When combined with my leather wrist band, it causes people to think I'm a gay coolster.

    This is why I love two-way zippers.

    I'll second that. I have an Apolis jacket with such a zipper configuration. It allows me to keep the slimmer profile while walking around without compromising comfort when I sit, since I can just pull the bottom zipper up a bit.

    Everytime I see a kid on campus wearing a fedora, trilby, whether it be new or an antique, I laugh on the inside; it looks so dorky

    I've only seen one guy on campus during my 27-year college career who sported a fedora and didn't look like he wandered out of a James Cagney movie.

    They are just one of those things that looks costume-y 99.9% of the time.

    And there's more options for men's "tops" that button-down collar shirts too.
    Gingham is the only pattern needed.
    It's too bad this shit is everywhere after SS09 b/c tasteful apps of gingham look sick.
