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 would cop that regardless of fabric if it was about 6" longer.

    Still, I'm 6'2" and I'd want knee length robe vibes.

    you obviously don't wear long cardigans because that's way too long, no such thing, and wouldn't look good if there were

    Yes, I don't wear cardigans that long because I haven't seen any. But I don't see how you can say it wouldn't look good or insinuate i wouldn't like it.

    not digging that one, maybe its just the wide hb, think something less structured like eg chesterfield would work better with your style, no?

    Man, I know this is going to catch me flak, but I seriously do not understand the appeal of Our Legacy

    EG chesterfield looks nice, but I'm looking for something a little longer, maybe closer to knee-length than mid-thigh.

    Agreed that the extra-wide herringbone may not be ideal.

    I think OL is cool

    also debating Dr Martens Arthurs or Story et Fall tan suede chelseas/sidezips
    Dr Martens - pro: they look very nice, would probably work well as beaters for swedish fall/winter, con: kinda redundant since I already have black derbies
    Story et Fall - pro: taaaaaaaaaan suuuuueeeedeeeee, a more diverse addition to my collection, con: might not get as much use because swedish weather

    I'm really in no hurry or need though so might decide to get neither

    Looks nice. I might look into Schneider, although I'm a little intimidated. I'm probably taking "designer intent" too seriously, but I remember reading an interview (which I wanna say was conducted by someone on the forum) in which he basically said that his clothing wasn't easy to wear and you need to put a lot of consideration into how you're putting together an outfit with his clothing. That's probably an exaggeration or maybe an outright misinterpretation (or the interview might have taken place in Flemish; my memory is pretty hazy at this point).

    Regardless, I'm looking for something that falls toward the relatively neutral end of the spectrum. I want a coat that I can wear with RRL chinos, Zam B. pants, or nerdy repro jeans depending on the day of the week and the mood that strikes me, and my perception of SS is that I'm not going to get that from one of his pieces.

    outerwear from ts(s), blue blue japan (although nothing is really in stock right now), Monitaly, that kind of thing would definitely go with what you seem to like. Schneidahhh not so much.

    Oh, and that was my interview - and yeah, that's what he said.

    I think schneider is just difficult in the way that he makes people look fat when they're not really or didn't balance proportions, and that sometimes his colors don't go well with skin tones other than caucasian, and that you need to really go to work with that lint roller, and..it's sometimes hard to layer well.
