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.

    Cheers,

    nice boots but what would you wear them with? they have a very distinct military look to them or is that the look you're going for?

    Got a few things. Three solid-colour T's from H&M, along with a white zip-up hoodie and 3-4 polos. A green/white Dublin zip-up hoodie from ragstock (yep), along with a brown zip-up hoodie from the same. Coming in the mail are a 28 New Standards, 30x32 Earnest Sewn Filsons in Milk Blue MAZ Dark, and Nudie Bootcut Ola in Raw Indigo (this is a wash apparently?). I'll post a pick of it all once the jeans come in. The APC's prob won't be in for a while, though, so I'll exclude them.

    Edit: OH! Ha. Yeah. Bad typo. I don't know why it took me so long to catch that.

    Get Smart, those Paul Smiths are amazing, nice! BioSore, unfortunate typo(s)(?) you got there. [​IMG] Did you get two pairs of ES? Milk and Maz Dark are two different washes, aren't they? And raw usually means not washed... someone correct me if the meanings of words have changed... [​IMG] anyway, nice jeans.

    Those are called freudian slips and they should tell you all you need to know about not getting passed out at a party near biosore.... [​IMG]

    No, not a typo. Only one pair of ES. I'm not sure which it is, it was being described as both, so I'm unsure what to expect. The pictures seemed like a lighter version of the MAZ Dark. And for the comment on the Nudies, I bought them from Context while they had their sale. I was slightly dismayed at first, as the wording for the wash was weird (mixed dry indigo and raw denim?), but apparently it's just a wash that is, as the owner put it, just like his 4-year-old Olas. But for clarification, 3 pairs of jeans... APC's, ES, and Nudie. Edit: And yes, unfortunate typo.

    Really feelin the finish, love the uniqueness of them. Unfortunately nobody can read my mind b/c I've been wanting a new pair of shoes for a couple of months now (though I have twenty something altogether) and I still have money burning a hole in my pocket. The Bannisters aren't bad either, but one thing is for sure; boots are growing on me.

    picked up this D&G watch yesterday it's actually pretty cool, very thin face and overall sleek design Didnt cost much, about the same as many Fossil or Diesel watches [​IMG]
    I love that watch. I recently bought... [​IMG] Guess jeans, I know, I want to be able to indulge in $150 dry denim too but I'll stay with these for a while

    $546 after tax.....it's a lot, but I treat myself to one big splurge this time of year and these were it.

    btw, what are the ones you posted above?

    digital denim I just now got your avatar. I never paid attention to it before, but after having just read it I said to myself, "Hah, that reminds me of ARST DVLP." Yes.. yes.
