    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.

    valve no question, rg does absolutely nothing for me his aesthetic is too niche to mesh with anything else in your wardobe (except basics)

    The valve coat looks too short.

    Cyc, the first one all the way.

    Saw this going for half price, textured knit cardigan from COS (not crazy about some of their other stuff but their knitwear is supposedly okay). Bit blah or worth picking up?

    Dunno, C4 showed how sweet that geller robe looks with a simple all-black getup. i say go for the robe.
    I like the texture, but consider replacing those buttons

    Unless you're the guy that bought the Valve last week, it's now sold out. Geller robe is indeed great, and I think because of the neutral color it can be worn outside of the All-Geller look. It's relatively lightweight though, and works best as some kind of mid-layer as opposed to actual outerwear. I'm sure I'll end up wearing it as, you know, a robe outside sometime this week though, so ymmv.

    Oh yeah, and the tassles on the belt are a nice touch that separates it from what could end up looking like your standard EG robe that seems to be making waves.

    Tried on the Norse jacket previously mentioned today:
    [​IMG]
    Fit was okay, sleeves were slightly too long but it just made it stack a bit. However, a friend told me he thought it was really boring and not worth it and now I'm a bit unsure as I may be inclined to agree with him, while the "boring" part is probably also just a part of Norse's aesthetic. Any second opinions willing to weigh in?

    It would have to be a Large/50, and the waist is apparently 16.5" which would be tight. But It seems like a tailor could add .5"
    Or the measurements might be slightly wrong. But the top looks pretty relaxed and it's described as such, and the taper looks on point as does the drape of it (100% poly).
    Anybody have experience with his stuff (or better yet, these pants in particular)?
    They are from @Neighbour fwiw

    Ya I'm looking for a lightweight long coat because OC is too hot to need real outerwear. Something loose and flowy I can throw on over a shirt.

    Valves now gone everywhere! =(

    I had those pants for a night, felt like they were a little loose on me. I'm a ~32 depending on the pants, so they seem perfect for a 33-34. pretty interesting texture, the polyester texture feels kind of... gummy in a soft drapey way. from seeing your fits they'd prob be great. there's another dude who posted in waywt that has them, ask his opinion as well cause like I said i didn't have them very long. also not feeling those green pants. pleats and drawstring and color and cuff...

    Any idea how Viridi-Anne is sized? The size 2 might be a little big for me, but with a long coat, who the hell knows.

    Alright fuck it I'm on a trouser rampage.

    These look great on the model, but the measurements are all kinds of screwy (Large = 37" waist, 13" rise, 28" inseam.... yet they do not look cropped at all?)
    I would order in a seconds but they are final sale.

    The rise is 13" long. That's why the inseam is short
