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.

    It is unlined, isn't it? The Garret coat on the other hand is very thick/stiff and with a much more traditional design/cut.

    yes, i've owned the garret too. much thicker/stiffer (feels like melton wool?), structured shoulders and fitted cut, lined throughout.

    that steven alan logo on the face bothers me

    If you want to go cheap and reliable, Seiko has some good options in similar matte color.

    Are those ^ the ones that are painted/coated and which will crack when worn to expose the leather underneath?

    How accurate are Zozo's measurements usually? This Remi Relief shirt is so goofy, but going by the measurements I'd want a Small, which has never been the case with any of their other stuff

    Size down if you're really trying to make it work. The shoulders are sloping more than they're designed to slope and the length looks to be a bit long. Ideally the horizontal torso line should reflect a slim cut, the line flaring out until a point slightly below the waist, then receding back to about the torso line.

    I think the coat works best on people with a tall, athletic build with somewhat broad shoulders to compensate for the limpness. Additionally, without the broad shoulders, the flaring at the waist is definitely accentuated.

    My only qualm about this coat is that, like you said, it won't keep you warm. I don't think this coat works with temperatures under 30 F (with windchill factored in), additional layers needed.

    Narrowed down my white sneaker hunt to three choices. All cost around the same in the end. The Buttero's are fairly well known around these parts, the first is from an up and coming Korean brand called Wooyoungmi.

    Retail pic here along with price.


    I dont mind the branding (I can rub it off pretty easily if I felt like it). Key features include the captoe, one pair of brass eyelets. that its really really white (the whitest shoe I have ever seen in real life), and it is vibram sole'd (will find out if they are resole-able). They are chunkier in real life than the Buttero's, I suspect because they are lined and because they are vibram'ed.

    EdIt: All of them are terrible is a reasonable answer.

    I've been really digging Wooyoungmi, but between those sneakers, I like the Butteros more.
