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.

    There's some talk about it in ask andy forums, it still should be a well made shoe that you picked up at a great price.

    yea the Terry Halls have a deeper "V"....and you're right about the 2nd point you made.



    mos def. the size of the laurel matches the size of my awesomeness. But yea man, they're the older laurel style, in oversized size scale. Here's the 'famous' pic of T. Hall that the sweater is an exact reproduction of, from 1979 when he fronted the Specials. Then and Now. FP is smart to reissue this sweater since The Specials are reuniting with all original members in late fall for a string of UK dates (and hopefully USA shortly after in 2009)

    what's the connection between ska and mod culture? are they considered a subset? well at least 1st and 2nd generation ska...?

    i consider myself a fan of ska, but i don't really know much about the culture. i don't even know how to skank wtf.

    anyways, i dig these terry hall sweaters :].

    Ska has more to do with skinheads than mods. Mods might like ska, but it was never "their" music, whereas it was the official beat of Skinheads in the 60s

    But for American mods in the 70s/80s Ska was all they listened to...surprisingly I don't know any American mods from back then that even liked real mod music (motown, northern soul, jazz, black R&B etc)

    I'd say The Specials and other ska bands from the 2Tone era probably had more skinhead following than mod following.

    Stazy- That raf mainline or raf by raf? The measurements seem spot on for what i prefer to wear and the color looks nice. Good pickup.

    raf by raf.


    How do they feel? The fit on that stuff is generally solid, but the materials are reallllyyyy inconsistent. I've felt things that felt like shit, and others that actually feel pretty good for the (sale) price. I have a pair of charcoal slacks that feel really nice that i might sell because they're a bit big. Similar measurements to your's. I was at a barneys feeling some of the other raf by raf stuff and somethings felt iffy.

    To be honest, I'm really sure how to judge material quality. The pants are slightly itchy when I wear them but nothing too bad. When I feel the material in my hand it's really soft and almost silky. My mom, an experienced seamstress, is far more knowledgeable when it comes to this kind of stuff. I'll get her opinion. I'll post the fabric content when I get home.

    Thrifted safety shoes. Steel toed and something-resistant soles. Very little wear but they seem to be pretty old, I can't imagine any foreman walking around in these today.

    stazy- I don't really need that much detail on them. I just think it's cool that you found a pair of Raf bys that are solid material wise, since they differ a lot. At first when you said Raf, i was wondering if you were ballin' buying mainline Raf Simons as soon as it hit the stores.

    Socal- You have no idea.....
