    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 wish 'qlo still made something like that. Will probably hold off and see if they release any parkas with the +j collection and if not maybe get a fjalraven or something. i should just man up and get a ss eg parka. doesn't have to be an m65, but really need some type of ss parka as a layering piece for rain an stuff. there used to be a bunch of attachment m65s on rakuten but they appear to all be gone...

    Small would probably be too big for mikey; I have small that fits (pretty slim) and I'm a 48

    Considering that I already own 4 navy suits and 3 brown suits, which should I add? This is already paid for, I just need to decide on color.

    Should I buy these Buttero boots:

    Or choose one of these Red Wing Blacksmiths:

    Judging style, quality, durability and brand recognition. Mostly to complement my raw denim.

    I know this is a bit boring, but anyone have an opinion on these scarves? The first is made from a linen/ bamboo mix. It has a very textured, dry hand, and TBH, I'm not totally sure I can pull off a linen scarf.

    The second made from baby alpaca and feels a bit more wearable. The weave kind of reminds me of Schneider's scarves, but the size of the scarf is less big (something like 20" by 70", instead of the shawl-like size of some of Schneiders).

    The blue linen scarf looks like it'll go with the casual workwearish stuff I think u wear. 2nd scarf looks more suited for tailored clothing imo. I prefer the 2nd one as the 1st one reminds me a bit of a hand towel or table linen for some reason.

    I like the first one for spring, not sure linen would work in colder weather.

    I should've said brand reputation or something like that. For instance, I've read that soles of Red Wing shoes are slippery and generally not that good. Sorry, not a native English speaker so my choice of words can be a little unfortunate sometimes I guess.

    I like the blue. Not sure if I'd wear the whole suit, but the jacket looks good.

    So this might sound stupid but I'm looking for a white t-shirt with some abstract-ish black print on it to pair with black or grey jeans. Not looking to spend $$$ on a t-shirt.

    Should I get this Uniqlo with a Jackson Pollock print:

    Or this Cheap Monday:

    Might as well ask in the intended thread. Undecided on this ts(s) piece:

    I think it looks ok open, but I was expecting more of a straight fit and it's a bit more of an A-fit.
