    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.

    DnW how are your girlfriend's jeans? Did you get em on sale? I'm constanlty on the look out for nice women's jeans (so far my best luck has been with JOE's).
    They're very nice, same construction quality as men's, obviously. The rise is much lower, and they're slim from the thigh down. They're nothing like anybody else has in our school. So far she only knows the typical girl's jeans stuff, this is be a bit different for her. She hasn't seen it yet because she's interning in another state, but she'll probably love it. Oh yeah, I got her R&B for the about the same as what it costs to fill up my gas tank. The only way I can afford to spoil her. [​IMG] I know a girl who swears by Joe's jeans, that's all she'd ever wear. Coincidentally, the's from CA, the OC to be more exact.

    Bought a nice western shirt (2 pockets, earth hues, plaid) on sale for $20 about a week ago. It's surprisingly slim, the small being small enough in the chest that it would be impossible for me to size down. They got plenty left in various colors and styles, some as low as $10, at Simons so my fellow Montealers should check it out (full disclosure, I didn't find them, Nairb49 did). Be warned that the shirts are quite long, which means you will have to get them shortened if you want to wear them untucked.

    Got some cool things in Montreal (the half off sale at U&I boutique was especially damaging to my wallet):
    Vintage Lacoste/Izod interlock polo with a collar like the AA polos
    APC multistripe polo
    APC sweatshirt-tee (really odd but cool, it's a blue shirt made from sweatshirt material, but short sleeved)
    Flippa K corduroy jacket (I think this might start me on a Scandinavian designer kick)

    Now, if only it would fucking cool off so I could wear it.

    You were in MTL? We even had good sales at Harry Rosen, which is not always the case....
    Were they out of Engineered garment at U&I cause they had some amazing stuff on sale, like the jacket I posted earlier in that thread

    Picked up this military-style Diesel jacket today that seriously rocks. It reminds me of the Dior M65-style jacket that everyone had a hardon for last fall. This fits really fitted/tight but comfortable, and doesnt have any typical Diesel embroidered crap anywhere. Very subdued with lots of cool details and a great fit.

    that's not the actual zipper color, I had to bump the contrast so it wasnt a dark blur....the zippers are a light brass/stainless color The fit is really good, mine is a size M and it literally fits like a glove, really tight but in a *just right* way. It ends right at the belt line and the sleeves are perfect for my arm length. I havent worn a jacket that fit this good in a looong time. It's light enough that I can even wear it now, since we're having cooler nites finally in socal.

    I went to New York City yesterday for a day trip. I went to the Scoop Warehouse Sale in SoHo and got PaperDenimCloth jeans for $39 (THE ORIGINAL RETAIL WAS $182). I'm not even kidding. I bought myself a pair and another one for a friend.

    They had a lot of clothes at very reduced prices. Prada shirts for $49, Sevens for $70, it was awesome.

    They were selling PDCs on their website for that price, but that's still a good deal depending on the model if they fit well, their quality is substantially reduced now. I've been wearing a pair of older PDCs the last couple days, they are really well made and great fitting jeans, too bad they don't make them like that anymore. I'm not too crazy about 7FAM for $70 but I suppose it depends on the model and wash. You can usually find them at Nordstrom Rack for that, but Marshall's has raised their prices to about $90-100 now, but they also sometimes have better models like the Slimmy and others that have $180-200 MSRP.
