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.

    Lots of people... there are members with watch collections worth more than your house. What elisiX posted is like one transaction for Andrewgreg @ Mr. Porter.

    Also, why do you aim for the mallbrand-look?
    Surely there must be other styles or aestethics you like you could try out instead of just looking like every other dude?
    I mean, nothing you wear is bad per se, but now that you're (hopefully) gradually getting a sense of "fashunz" by following waywt and this thread, don't you feel that you should maybe start developing your personal style?

    tl;dr
    Plaid shirts are boring

    Fair question. It's a slow process I think. A couple things I've learned recently (from SF no less) is that I owned a lot of poor fitting, average quality items. At the end of the day, the way I've always dressed is casual and a street wear look outside of work. I used to suit up daily and didn't think much of weekend wear, but I have not worn a suit to work for about 2 years now and I never updated my wardrobe to suit.

    So this first step has really been about adding color, increasing the quality and feeling comfortable while doing so. The reality is, I work in a very casual environment, and while these items may be quite commonplace on this forum, in my world they're miles ahead. The look and style I admire is too formal for my office and I have only just started to introduce tucked shirts / blazers into my fits for more formal days (client meetings etc).

    Some risks can certainly be taken from here. Let's see what 2013 brings.

    Here's a few examples of a more formal look vs casual look in my current wardrobe.

    I was guessing that was the case, but anyways that's progress so that's good.
    But still, I find plaid shirts incredibly boring [​IMG]
    (the kitsune ones are nice though)

    This is how I want to dress. If I did, i'd seriously be roasted so hard in my work environment (IT-WEB).

    :embar: thanks art and g, snow and I are pretty much the exact same size, so I'm hopeful that it should work out. Might also be trying to pick up a few Ervell knits, brand synergy to the max

    I've just started reading that blog and in almost all of his shots he's smoking.

    Absolutely looks as though he's trying to look cool by smoking. I personally hate smoking.
