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.

    I'm usually a 46 unless the brand decides to cut really wide (i.e. my margiela 5 zip is a 44). You guys mostly aim at the 48-+. I'm not particularly looking for an overcoat anyway, I just liked what I saw on the website, very nice tweed fabrics.

    opera pumps and other Tods-esque drving shoe monstrosities have always been part of the GQ/menswear playbook. it might look kinda cool in that scheider lookbook, but mostly because of the model. on us mortals, they will look suitsupply- euro-douchey. or worse.

    I've learned the hard way boots and laceups always look better (unless you' got Tiralleur level style). I say this as a big fan of traditional penny loafers. but I really only like them in that thrift shop / two-tone / punk rock kinda way.

    Looking for a pair of casual boots to wear [college], not sure where to start... haven't worn boots in awhile. I'm not a fan of loud clunking boots when walking, but I guess I can deal with it?
    I have a pretty modern/tech wardrobe. I take care of my stuff, but I'm not afraid to beat on them. Especially when it's snowing and shit.

    Does anyone think the Dayton Service Boot might look good with blind eyelets?

    Blind eyelets similar to this Florentini + Baker pair

    Regarding the beanie, big head: it definitely sounds like you should try on what you should buy before buying it.

    not without knowing what your wardrobe consists of, basically those traditional work boots are not very versatile. The f+b sidezips are the most versatile of the bunch.

    F+B look the best out of those.

    I own a pair of F+B sidezips and they are quite loud though, much louder than any of my MMM sidezips
