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.

    In the end I just don't find many expensive watches particularly nice looking. And I also don't find cheap digital watches bad looking. In fact, I think I actually prefer the look of like a chunky G shock most of the time.

    Thanks, yeah. Four gigantic sliding door windows, all of which need curtains and lace inner curtains, and two of which had to be custom ordered because they're non-standard sizes. I had no clue buying curtains was such a process

    Three week trip to Nepal next month to visit Everest Base Camp! Super excited. Been wanting to do this for three years ever since reading Into Thin Air but couldn't take enough time off from work

    That's awesome. Visiting Everest (or Nepal even) has been a dream of mine. I hear there are some really nice tea houses along the way.

    All I meant is that I don't want to wear one, not that I avoid people who do.

    I don't know if I agree, you could argue that most of our cultural tastes are based on association...

    I picked this up last season from End for around $250 on sale so you picked up a steal.

    Never wear it reversible stripes too tacky -- it's a solid fall/spring jacket.

    Been said before and you are right.

    My daily routine takes me from my apartment, into the car, into the office and in reverse so I rarely go outside and get 'wear' on my clothing.

    That color is fantastic!.

    Those derbies are dope Caveat.

    Just got these Peir Wu trousers, the detail of the fabric really got me interested.

    Sort of slubby, yeah? And the acorn pocket flap is a nice touch.

    Kind of yeah, the fabric was described similarly to raw denim in touch and should have some nice weight to them, the other Peir Wu wool trousers I have are really nice and somewhat heavy.

    Just bought this pair from Paul Smith online. I'm a little bit worried because they're tapered fit which is something I don't wear often enough, so am not sure how they would fit. The worst would be baggy. I prefer mine to fit pretty slim to the body. Anyone has experience with tapered fit especially from PS?

    Just got a pair of Momotaro x Japan Blues from B&S. Coming from Levi's these are easily the most comfy jeans I've ever worn.

    Paul Smith will never be skinny their off the rack items are never slim. Skinniest width on hem would be 16-17cm I'm guessing.
