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 mean, i feel gellers aesthetic is very strong, and very good. it shows so much, but i just can't afford it at my age and with my current living expenses. as i say this of course i'm planning out like ten other purchases, jesus.

    By my calculations I'll be able to afford the things I want now in my late 20's [​IMG] .

    Gilt to the rescue. I need a basic suit soon and what do I find, a hickey sale with a host of basic suits including one in charcoal which was copped. That drop 7 is key for me, it'll still need to be taken in but at least it won't have to be by 3-4 inches like with other suits around.

    Yeah I got a solid navy last go-around. Hickey(style) is about as SW&D a MC suit is gonna get. It's slimmer than most, w/ slim lapels/high gorge, but still really well-made for the price. Great for a staple business suit that's not gonna make you look 25 yrs older than you are.

    Yeah, that's basically my reasoning on it also. I wear a suit maybe 2-3 times a year to mostly interviews/business related events or weddings, though the last few of those I was in the wedding party so I had to wear a Men's Wearhouse rental monstrosity [​IMG], so I'd rather not drop a large amount of coin on it but I also don't want to go cheap and get something awful in either fit or quality.

    I have one of those suits in charcoal too (36R), it was bought last year as my lone interview suit. Fit is great, slim and half canvassed, good quality indeed.

    I thought they would be much darker, looks a bit different indoors where I tried them on. [​IMG] I tried many many different pairs. Narrowed it down to this, a mykita frame that is almost double this in cost, and a pair of lindberg frameless. I'll probably get a pair of frameless frames in two years when my insurance gets rejuiced. I really like the grey/ashphalt frame coloring. I think it beats the solid black combo usually favored among asians. [​IMG] Also fuck its allergy season.

    Here you go jet, best I can do. [​IMG] Alexander Mcqueen mainline. The burgundy pants are pretty much the best made article of clothing I have ever had I think. Shirts have some great details but just took a group pic.
