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.

    Yeah I know.. but still not a fan :/ The thin looking hooks just seem fragile and like a pain to close. Do you own any pieces that use them?

    Yeah that's definitely better seeming. Nevertheless I personally find the piece more favorable as its mostly closed by buttons rather than if it was fully hook closured :)

    Yea I think it's the hooks that are holding me up too, would much prefer the buttons from the newer jackets.

    I'll probs go with the Geller since I actually got to see/wear it in person and it fits perfectly, etc

    Really need a wool, mid-thigh length coat. So far all I've come across is this Our Legacy coat.

    I feel it might be a bit too trad though, and really I'm looking for something to wear with the collar done up the neck.

    Any suggestions? Needs to be black, single breasted. I'm kinda looking for a silhouette like this Acronym J38-S if that makes sense.

    I'm not into pinstripe but really like the vintage fabric cuff print.

    Should I cop for $120?

    The knit's so huge already, cream would make it look too big imo. The color/sizing (not design) is more appropriate for women. The browns longer than the cream too which makes the wide width look more proportioned as well. That said as comfortable as the brown looks don't know how practical it is. Since you'd be sitting on the knit, how long would it even hold up I wonder.

    Just looks like one model is shorter than the other. You should check it out from somewhere you can return it or try it on. Like you said it is huge
