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.

    It's so tempting because thing is really beautiful and makes me feel like a total badass, but I already have that Monitaly "5-zip" and I really shouldn't be letting impulse purchases get in the way of my One True Kop this F/W, no matter how cool they are. I'd just rather stick between the Monitaly and the Coppens, depending on the mood.

    Been looking for a olive hued M65 jacket for the longest time but never really like the military surplus or any other ones I found. Played yoox roulette and got this:

    Fiebing's suede dye and Angelus leather paint for the uppers and sole, respectively. I was impressed how well they came out.

    Sorry dudes, Barena long cardigan is not particularly impressive in person. It looks cool, but the material is underwhelming - scratchy, pilling in the box, a narrow gauge yarn and not a particularly thick weave. Nothing luxurious about it, nothing snuggly or cozy. It would fit under a long coat, which is maybe what it's for; so that would be pretty good and there are definitely some styling possibilities. Not worth it to me for 250$, especially when that's what you pay for Inverallan. YMMV, I guess.
