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 hate when you don't see the RP thread carry over into the WAYWT thread.

    I'd just like to formally second this. I mostly notice it on SuFu, but it gives the impression that the poster is just waiting for someone to ask about it so the purchase will be bumped. No different than withholding basic information in a Buying/Selling post in order to get cheap bumps.

    In WAYWT, I realize that it's sometimes nice to just let the fit stand on its own, but obviously these threads are about sharing information, so recent purchases of all places could use a bit of detail.


    I see what you are saying, but I withheld the brand because it's nice to get a reaction from the piece itself rather than the name behind it. Usually people just PM if they have a question about brand/fit/stockists.

    Also no waywt cause I don't own a camera. [​IMG]

    I think after seeing so many jet/ghulk posts, everybody on the forum knows a south willard stock photo when they see it just from lighting and the setup. Is it a rule that no one is ever allowed to show an actual picture or fit pic of south willard clothing? I haven't bought from there yet but i'm kinda worried now.

    South Willard doesn't actually exist. It's just some site jet and ghulkan made up to make themselves look cool. [​IMG]

    I once stepped inside SW to buy a pair of r&b's but the oddest thing happened: when I opened the door the only thing I saw was my back half entering the store, much like an Escher painting.

    Just got these Samurai S0500XX (contest denim) in the mail from BIG today...they don't fit. Need a 36 instead of the 34. I had Gordon hem off 2 inches before shipping. Am I screwed on returning/exchanging them at BIG? Sell them here? Sufu? I'd like to take as little of a loss as possible on the $291 I just dropped. Uggg.[​IMG]

    Morse, I doubt they'll take them back like that unless they somehow forgot they lopped off 2 inches and don't notice them being shorter, which is unlikely.

    I was thinking that. Maybe I can sneak the return through...unless they read this forum? Oops

    xchen, any idea what I could get for them here or on sufu? Again, I'm aiming for damage control on the $291.

    Post them and find out. Usually for a brand new pair, its 10-15% of retail, but because you had them hemmed, expect to lose closer to 20-25%.

    I doubt you could get that much here or Sufu. If you sold I think it would probably have to be at a bit of a loss, unfortunately.

    Looks like I'll aim for the return, and then list here for maybe $220 and see what happens. One things for sure - I will never order jeans again without trying on first. Lesson learned/I'm retarted.

    It's retarded [​IMG] Also, that's why you have to do a LOT of research when ordering without trying things on. Talk to people who might possibly have a similar body type, etc.

    Yea, I did that man. I think I was just stuck in between sizes. Or in denial about my waist size. [​IMG] Sucks either way. My real mistake was requesting the hem.

    Look at this as an opportunity to lose a few pounds.
