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.

    Cheers,

    Louis Vuitton did a bunch of dégradé runway coats back in 2007 and the versions that went into production (that I saw, anyway) were 99% wool, 1% cashmere.

    Personally, I don't get out of bed for less than 15%. :hide:

    A bit like --

    Zara has an army of very competent designers working for them, and I am sure that they can cut a nice coat. I know a few men and women who make Zara look very good. However, no matter how cheap you can bring down labor costs, there is only so much you can bring down the price of superlative fabrics. Helen Keller with frostbitten fingers could tell the difference between a Zara coat and this Stephan Schneider coat.

    I'm on the fence about that one.

    Well, the sleeves are lined in black polyester, which essentially just means that if you decide to wear a knit, that you will not have to wrestle with your coat.

    Er... buy an extra coat so my kids won't have to know that feel? I highly recommend the blue-grey Film Coat, also known as the "Better than Zara" coat?

    Does your return on a coat cover you enough to get that charmin ultra soft?

    I'm probably set on coats, but I'm considering getting a shirt or sweater from SP, so still contributing?

    This is the Zara coat?

    Seriously, thanks for the detail. Lined sleeves are helpful.

    And would Herr Schneider shrug in the Gallic manner in response to our friend here? Roll his eyes? Or simply maintain his good manners?

    He's a nice guy right?

    Yup. We encourage you to deal with our affiliate vendors and help us keep the lights on (and apparently, keep @Synthese in Birkenstocks)

    It's impossible to say, but if I had to make a bet, I would say maintain his good manners, or maybe chuckle. And probably never invite him back again.

    Stephan, he is super nice. Very soft spoken. Very dedicated to what he does. When we were at the showroom, while Jasper and Eric were taking pictures, I was looking at all the pieces that we had put on the rack to shoot, and poring over the linesheets. Stephan refused to talk about minimums. In fact, he told me that he preferred to talk about the pieces themselves, and, in his words, "The passion". It was a very welcome change from the usual horse trading that goes on in showrooms and tradeshows, and really allowed us to focus on what we really liked in the collection. Also, the cookies and tea really hit the spot. We walked/scootered a lot in Paris, and it was pretty cold for a few days.

    Heat index is 102 today. So of course I'm wondering, when is my neat Film coat coming in...

    Edit: Or am I suppose to pick it up in front of Zara?

    lol. So, I have seen that blue grey color coming out of Zara recently. I like the pretend that Zara reads Styleforum and gets its cues from us. Makes me feel like a special flower.
