    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.

    The latter. Simple is better. And raw denim will stain the white back panel.

    I love patent leather (actually just ordered some patent leather vans) but I think the dark non-patent ones are nicer

    2nd one looks way easier to wear well and I also like it more

    That's really a matter of personal taste. Couldn't see myself in patent sneakers. But if you're more of a blinged-out kinda guy, why not?

    Not sure if I can pull this off, but i do have a long neck lol. Planning on wearing it under a jacket as well.
    For $40 should I do it? Might get one in pale gray heather as well.

    Turtlenecks are dope and no way near as hard to pull of as people make them out to be.

    Go for it.

    IDK, I find them pretty hard to pull off what with the small and elongated neck opening. Maybe I just have a big head.

    ^^ I have a really big head, but still like looking like a pretensious german architect.

    nonsense, I'm 99% sure you'd look good in a slim one (you got decent chin bones iirc? if so even more)

    I meant literally difficult to remove. The neck gets caught on my ears or something.

    Looking for a low profile military-esque boot as a beater for Chi winters. Came across these two. Other suggestions definitely welcome.

    Turtle necks are better when they are a loose, roll neck style. The our legacy and ami ones are pretty great. My favourite are the Nike funnel necks though [​IMG]
