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 think those numbers will leave obvious stitching marks if you take them of. And the seam ripping seems like it would be a pain in the ass. Might be worth it to just buy a nicer sweatshirt, like Left Field. Also, the Stussy Deluxe stuff from this fall's release it really solid.

    It's an idea that could look bad, but is well executed. I say get it.
    Yeah, if you described the sweater to me I'd say it sounds awful! Yet I somehow I like how the design turned out. It is something I like that looks like something I wouldn't like. That's part of why it intrigues me.
    BB1 I think you find everything worth owning in Japan and post it in this thread. I need to P.M you and get a list.
    There would be too many items to list! I honestly think the selection of high quality casual clothing (and the sheer number of shops selling it) in Japan makes the US and Europe look quite sad by comparison.

    ^^Unless you really must have it, don't. I can imagine it sitting in your closet.

    no. unless you have a lot of silver clothing with which to pair it with

    Why would you pair your silver laceups with silver clothing? That's kinda what the street kids do who think you have to match the purple laces on your shoes with a white and purple sweatshirt and a purple hat or some lame shit like that. Just wear them with beat up skinny jeans like some trashed overdyed black ones and a slouchy but slim white tshirt (if you're kinda slim/skinny that is).

    I think the shirt has potential. At least it's not a short sleeve. S/S button-ups always reminds me of the dorky office guy everybody avoids talking to.

    I pair silver with black or grey usually. I have a pair of metallic shoes (JV Chucks) but they don't really get much wear. So I guess basically what Chrono said.
