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.

    What about these then?
    http://www.openingceremony.us/produc...10087&cn=menu1


    this is a perfect example of a shoe that no one would pay more than $20 for unless you stick "x opening ceremony" at the end of the brand name. a good test would be to say

    "if this wasnt an opening ceremony "collab," how much would i pay for it?"

    i did that with the boo x sperrys, and realized that those shoes are really only worth $50-60 for me

    Ain't really a party then is it?
    Well, I had a good time.

    PattyC- that's a classic pattern, but please please don't try to dress like Noel/Liam Gallagher.

    Sort of true. They are nicer fabric than normal keds though. White chambray.

    The product discription in link just says: red, white, chambray, denim, and navy. I see white and chambray, but no white chambray.

    edit: though it would be cool if they were white chambray

    who cares about fabric, its a pair of white shoes that you'll be wearing around in winter, they will stay white for all of a day and then be as dirty as white canvas shoes

    Well no one is giving me any suggestions for some sneakers. I'd really like something less ubiquitous than vans or chucks.

    If you like those then get them they don't look like vans other than overall concept.

    I looked at spring court but those chunky ass soles look terrible. CPs are outta my budget, and generic surplus designs aren't that great. I may just lay off the sneaker thing for a while I guess.

    How about some Lacoste? They're a good fitting, basic white canvas, nothing funky, sneaker. They have a little croc logo, but it's so little that you won't think twice about it.

    250 is too much for that, i think.

    If you didn't say it was rlbl I'd guess it was around $80.

    250 is a lot for a jacket like that. I don't think it looks great, a little too much going on.

    dont really like rlbl nylon... that being said i have the remit jacket in silver, though i got it for $125. otherwise stay away from the windbreakers and stuff, there is nothing really special about them.
