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.

    I need a light jacket and had store credit burning a hole in my pocket. The cape thing is removable. My first Siki piece, which I'm interested to handle in person.

    Regis, you didn't buy anything from the member archive "sale" at Orlebar?

    Also, these are waiting for pickup.

    These arrived:

    ^ cord, more brown toned than I initially expected, cutting it close regarding sizing

    ^ cotton linen blend, really nice

    I was wondering about getting last seasons Miami themed SS shirt with the yacht print, but I knew I would regret it later. The other few things I wanted were either not in my size or not in the color I wanted

    Nice pickup on the shoes. I despise SLP shoes for looking like exact replicas of Stan Smiths at 7 times the price, this model looks nice and something slightly different.

    What's really silly is people paying $300+ for those AJ1's.

    Could be super cool or super silly (why you wearing half a dress, bro?). Keeping my fingers crossed for the former, and I imagine the cape thing being worn more often than not.

    Yea I'm a s/m, and I'll add you to the list of people to notify if it doesn't work out.

    you despise margielas and ann d shoes too then? their signature trainers look exactly like gat's and chucks. the og rick dunks ripped off af1's (even the logo). raf didn't even bother renaming the vandals. designers copy classic sneaker designs all the time.

    No, that would be like hating Real McCoys, EG, Visvim etc. for using military garments for inspiration. If your going to use a garment as inspiration do it well. I despise SLP sneakers because I don't like the design of either them or stans.

    Not a fan of the slp kicks either, but this makes no sense.

    You don't understand it because @steveoffice decided to interpret my post assuming im bias to all brands that copy other brands. Which was never said by me at all but yea, some people assume with harsh judgement.

    No, I got that. But your last sentence in your post suggests that you'd hate the copy regardless of how well it was done because you hate the design of the original. That's fine, but it's very different from your original criticism.

    haha, please point me in the direction where 2 kop AJ1's at retail. Like cyc said, it's more like jordan 1's at twice the price now

    SLP's are still super nice looking tho.
