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.

    These are nice, had been looking at them all season. I don't really have reason to buy, but IMO they're pretty much the best Converse-style sneak out there (except maybe the new Ann D's)

    $400 is about Japanese retail, however I am not asking you to manage my finances so what I am asking is would you say acquiring said sweater is a good idea, considering I am looking for streetwear items and knowing what you do about my style/wardrobe.

    Oh and I checked recently and I have some thing like 28-30 knits so it's not like I need another knit or can't rotate enough to have patterns.

    I think they're kind of cool. Is there a way to keep them up? Don't have belt loops and they don't look elastic.

    Fabric looks great but am I the only one who really doesn't like the anatomical details those designers do on everything?

    Well I took “acquisition mode” to mean the let’s call them pangs that come from justifying the price of something you want. Or something like that. Were you implying something else? The fact that you’ll be inconvenienced with a return if it doesn’t work out? The psychic torpor that comes from being a vehicle for capitalism? I don’t know. Anyway.

    Going by your fits, those that come to mind, I would say no. Okay, maybe. What do you imagine it working with? Might look all right under that PW varsity thing. I also seem to recall you in a sarong or skirt or whatever, so if this is your flamboyance talking, if fuzzy jigsaw puzzly camo print with mismatched buttons tickles your fancy, then go for it. If not don’t. I don’t know. See if you still like it drunk. Maybe the pattern resolves itself into something interesting.

    alpaca/Laine oversized 7B closure, quite low V-neck, very long.
    The buttons and button hole placket are constructed on a different panel giving a 3-D effect
