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 think it was also probably diesel that got the margiela basics into barney's co-op. as much as $3000 leathers are cool, i have a suspicion that the backbone of the brands profitability is on $300 sweatshirts and button downs.
    These were in Barney's Co-ops from the get go. I suspect that Diesel's main contribution was its expertise in marketing. Earlier than 2002, I remember that there was reams of Margiela lingering on the Barney's outlet racks. By 2002, there was a lot more press, and the Margiela collection was at the top of the stairs of the 3rd floor of the Beverly Hills Barneys - taking up pretty valuable real estate. The value of good PR should never be underestimated. There is a reason we hear about Julius, but little about say, ato or s'exprimer, which are often sold alongside Julius in Japan.

    to be fair, it would more interesting to see at least runway pics or even stock pics of your rps, than just a list of stuff that at least I have no idea what it looks like

    That's bc he got those ugly ass scribble ones in 08. Some of us had gats in 06.

    one of the things I hate about this place, the only forum I've ever been where you can't do this and now you can only edit for a short time, before it was indefinitely

    lol. you supposedly blow thousands on clothes and dont have a camera? every iphone i know of has a camera. what is the macbook pro going to do for you? it's basically the same resolution + no flash.

    even jet substantiates his purchases + fits.

    THIS STATEMENT IS DUBIOUS unless you mean liquor and cigars.

    That said I would actually like to see Razele kops not to prove he bought them (das stupid) but just to see them.

    I think he means he doesn't have a computer to post his fits from.

    In which case, wtf.

    lol. how would he be posting at all then? he's made 4000+ posts from his iPhone? [​IMG]
    can anyone confirm whether a single one of those posts has included a single substantiated claim?

    at least jet has posted fits in the past...albeit infrequently. plus jet's taken pics of his purchases.

    Does it really bother you so much to sit and contemplate the fact that your man isn't taking actual pictures of the things he's talking about having bought? You somehow think he's cheating?
