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.

    As mentioned elsewhere, They are the Starrs. They are very popular here, they look excellent with jeans. I wish I had a pair, though in the darker brown, size 10.5UK. You have made a considerably wise choice.

    Thank you kindly, sir.

    I found them on sale. Down from around $600 CAD to $289 and then 12% off that (balance of 25% off and 13% taxes). I'm hoping I will be able to wear them with a suit. Formal enough?

    If you wear the suit casually / in a social setting, a la Thick as Thieves, yes. I wouldn't wear them in a business environment or anything comparable though, somewhat too elongated. I suppose others' views may vary. I see them as the quintessential dressier jean shoe, though they obviously have pretty good range. The price you got them at is an excellent deal in a broadly usable tone, good pickup. While not a purchase, exactly, I should post this... my birthday pending, this coat is on its way to me from a friend, except in off-white (it is made of a cotton / silk / poplin combo). Helmut Lang from FW08. I hope it gets colder once in a while and I have a chance to wear it before fall, though my nico jackets will more likely suit march temps here. [​IMG] EDIT: Actually if anyone knows who is / was selling this and can get me more info I would appreciate it.

    ^ Would you say that jacket's more silver or gray?

    More gray, though the sheen from the poly body can make it look silverish at times.

    - APC, New Standard, indigo brut
    - Uniqlo, T-000, Skinny fit tapered jeans, gray

    - I'd be interested in hearing your feedback on the differences in fit between the jeans. I have the APC NS as well & have been toying with the Uniqlo T-100 or their MIJ raw denim line (before you ask, I hate trying things in on in crowded shops.

    Thank you kindly, sir.

    - only with fashion forward suits not business safe.

    Bought another Panama short brimmed hat today. This time from Agnes B with a black band (planning to change the band to either chocolate or navy). I think this will be better with suits in summer compared to the Dunhill I got last week as the solid bands & pinched crown lends to a more dressier look.

    Pictures tomorrow.

    I dislike loud, crowded shops. It costs me quite an effort to go to Uniqlo in London. Here are some thoughts about the fit of the NS and T-000. I haven't washed them yet and have been wearing them for a couple of days. NS, size 29: I sized down one from my waist in Levis 501 and Nudies AJ. The size is ok and will be perfect if they stretch. However they sit rather tight on the hip and around the crotch. I hope they will stretch in this area too. The fit around my thighs is tight and not uncomfortable. T-000, size 32: I tried smaller sizes and they did not fit my thighs - I am not fat, just do some sport. The waist is a bit too wide nevertheless I could wear them without a belt as they sit very tight on my thighs. The fit around the hip and crotch is relaxed, not baggy. The leg opening is smaller compared to the NS and the legs are slimmer.

    sounds about right, I wear 29 NS and got the 31 T-000 but my thighs are pretty slim around so I didnt have to size up. Leg is definitely slimmer than the NS, but not quite hipster skin tight.
