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.

    Some of you have very depressing closets.

    Granted, this isn't the MC side of the forum, but I'm still surprised by the lack of shoe trees in these footwear photos. Why spend a few hundred bucks on a pair of shoes and then omit the $25 trees that will dramatically extend the shoes' lifespan and appearance?
    An early death for a few of those shoes would be a good thing.

    I see your point, spertia. I'm considering a few pairs for some of my more beloved shoes. That said, the leather of most of my shoes (TBC) holds its shape pretty well on its own and the boots are meant to be/look beaten up. On a side note, while most of my shoes retailed for $250-300, I never really paid more than $100 each for them, and the Corcorans and MOMAs were each $30 on Ebay. You talkin' about my closet/shoes, robin??? Those're fightin' words!

    I really only have to be in formal dress for concerts and such but I plan to get a TaT suit or tux later on in the year (lucky me I live in Pasadena and they're local).

    As for shoe tress, I don't understand the fuss. I have them for a few pairs, but I have never noticed a difference between my treeless shoes and my treed shoes.

    Doing the F/W switch in my modest closets.

    Shirts--NO MORE WIRE HANGERS

    Outerwear/heavy knits

    Lighter knits will go in drawers--I"m beginning to think I'm over-invested in gray.

    Did not photo my suit/coat/trouser rack.

    You have your heavy knits hanged but lighter knits folded?
    If I were you I would have it done the other way around.

    The two heavy ones would take up a drawer themselves, so they need to hang. I have nice, large shouldered hangers for them!

    Is the sweater on top of the LL Bean Norwegian a NdG marled wool sweater?

    Do you like white shoes?

    I've been meaning to DIY up a neat kind of hanger/shoeholder mix but i always delay it and then forget it for a couple months =/.

    Jesus you're privileged.

    My wardrobe consists of four drawers; socks, underwear, tops, trousers. And my two pairs of shoes positioned neatly in the corner.

    FUK Phatty's wardrobe is the thing of dreams. I dream about that wardrobe.


    Looks like a B&B Italia closet system you've got there. Used to sell B&B. Great stuff, and can make even the worst slob a tidy minimalist.

    Mine right now is a dodgy second hand furniture job

    Next year going to do a full wall sized wardrobe from ikea, custom with everything perfect.

    Shoe racks / three drawers / area for denimz (double hangers each) area for work stuff, area for casual stuff

    Pretty much going to be awesome and what I'll keep for quite a few years, so will drop a fair bit.
