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.

    doubt he's the doctor, but him being a timelord would kinda make sense

    I like that you actually considered the possibility that he could be the doctor
    He probably could be the doctor

    I like the older season ones better, with the chain laid flat.

    Like the contrasting lighter leather straps on option 1, but not sure about the denim and how it will look when it fades. Also worried about indigo loss on my clothing....

    Sip-san to me those are one of those things where it's like cool to see and think about but then once you actually get them you're like these are really gross and I want to barf. If it was the version with the chain laying flat I would say go for it

    Lol I suck, it's actually the older model, I just took the first pic I could find.

    Obviously, anything with a chain will look at least a tiny bit tacky, it's pretty discreet though.

    But keep going guys, I'm 50/50 now.

    Those shoes are actually super functional. You see, when Raf was starting out as a designer, he loved to bike. But he could only afford shitty bicycles where the chains would snap right off the gears. Growing tired of this, he started wearing spare chains around his shoes. So when those shoes arrive in the mail, don't think about how tacky they look. Think about how much they'll save your ass next time you're riding a shitty bicycle where the chains break. Function over form.

    bikes are for pussies

    chains are for combat

    Me too, although I haven't seen either material in person.

    I would prefer the twill with the natural leather straps (like the red label nanamica collab), but unfortunately those are hard to come by.

    I'm Visviming a shirt and I want to get shoes that have an artisanal flavor like something from Visvim but they cost too much

    I'm thinking of getting these

    The correct compromise for Sipang is to get some norwegian/bentivegna/goiserer stitched shoes.
