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.

    uh huh of course you do

    Oh that's right. I'm sorry for busting up the over 30 party people are having. I forgot you can't understand and appreciate a music/time period unless you lived it despite having not only listened to a majority of music from the era intently, but also written on it. My mistake. I just felt like breaking up the nostalgia-fest a little by playing devil's advocate.

    this band was the shit back in their day, Jook. post-skinhead, post-suedehead, post-casual, post-smoothie, proto-glam, pre-oi boy band

    ...may i correct: pre-casual but 100% bootboy!

    Here's another. Again, the main point for me was to show how many of these photos from the 70's show streetwear items popular today. Here is Art Garfunkel in a picture from a 1972 album wearing suede Desert Boots.

    Nice picture. My dad told me he was only wearing Clarks desert boots in the seventies, he was surprised to see me wearing a pair last summer. From what he was saying, they had a lot of crazy models back then too.

    I'm a big fan of the 70's sing/songwriter/boho hippie style.

    Chris Robinson nails it I think. Any idea about where to find vintage levis and other vintage jeans like these?
