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.

    Renzo is the devil

    It's not like Margiela hasn't been owned by the Diesel group since 2002 or anything. I mean, look at the brand circa 2009 vs 1998 (when I first saw the stuff at the Barney'
    s outlet in Cabazon.) It has marquee stores. It is sold all over the internet. There are half a dozen different lines for men alone. Tons of sneakers, jewelry, and accessories which must have massive margins. In 1998, some of the Barney's SAs, at Barneys in Beverly Hills, didn't know anything about the brand. I remember asking after the brand (at the main store after having seen the stuff at the outlet - I didn't pick up any, I had a Jil Sander fetish at the time, and spent all my money on that) and getting lots of blank looks. Can you imagine that now? And there was tons of stuff languishing at the outlet at 75% off - everything from knits and tees, starting at about $30. Alan Bilzerian dropped the brand after SS06 or FW06, telling me that it had just become soulless. That guy has a much, much, better eye than I do, or, in all likelihood, will. But has the brand become less popular since then? Aren't we all still eating it up?

    Does the collar stay up pretty well or does it like to lay out on the shoulders?

    Decided to stick with iconic fit > denim features.

    APC New Standard
    APC New Cure

    Filson Sportsman in Olive (for work and travel since I live out of a bag ATM)

    Waiting for oki-ni to go on sale to grab some cream nom denim and a mesh scarf.

    Do Aldens ever go on sale? I need the flex welt chukka in tan and brown suede.

    Also when revolve does 30% I'm going to annhilate the CP's there.

    Bball highs in white or silver??

    I don't care either way; just re-iterating, as impolyt pointed out, the location of the garment's manufacture indicated on the tag is almost always meaningless.

    No, it gives important indications but isn't all encompassing. For example made in Belgium usually trumps made in Romania or Portugal and Raf Simons moved a lot of his production there which is why I appreciate how most (all??) Stephan Schneider is still made in Belgium.
