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.

    Cheers,

    Fok on behalf of the entire Styleforum team

    The "smooth" and the "rough", having seen both, have quite a different feeling. The hairy suede somehow gives the sneaker a lot more volumunious look, while the smooth is a bit sleeker (I find the darker colors overly sleek looking for my style, but YMMV.) They hold up fine.

    I'm also a guy with ha;f a dozen black leather jackets, and several pairs of nearly identical jeans in various stages of wear, and 70+ belts. Right now, I am essentially wearing only doible D-ring belts, of which have have about 6-8. I am not a minimalist. I'm a uniformist, I guess.

    I had actually been meaning to ask about belts. Nitpicking time - I really don't like wearing a belt and its outline being visible under a t-shirt/jumper etc. Any recommendations for something with as slim a profile as possible? (the buckle/clasp is the main culprit I think)

    Beat you to it, man. I bought those after seeing Fok's post. Damn you, @la guy!
    And then bought a pair of white GATs, which was probably not financially wise given my recent purchases of a bunch of imabari towels (thanks to @nicelynice).

    Depending on your size, there are a couple for cheap in the sample sale section. FWIW, I wear a 30 in most jeans and a 32 is perfect for me.

    This counts as a salient recent purchase but i recently picked this belt up https://shop.havenshop.ca/products/uh0433-belt-black and the fastening mechanism is about as low profile as it gets. On the other hand, it's very long, so not super low profile overall.

    -Kapital Monkey Cisco Century Denim (123-S)
    -Larry Smith Extra Thin Triangle Bangle (Silver)
    -Peanuts & Co. Bull Ring (Silver, Ruby/Emerald)[​IMG]
    -Visvim Coverall Wabash [​IMG]
    -Needles Asymmetric Ghillie Sneaker (Off White)[​IMG]

    This is my first pickups from all of these brands. I'm thinking about getting one more Larry Smith Bangle. I'm definitely now hooked on Kapital and Visvim. Any suggestions for Visvim/Kapital pieces that I should pick up this upcoming FW17 for someone that has mostly EG and Orslow. Nothing too crazy, I plan on getting a few items from both brands every season.

    E-thrifted some derbies made by K Shoes (similar shape to the Loake 771s) and had them topied with a slightly thicker winter sole, very happy with how they turned out :satisfied:
