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.

    Hi,

    I guess I'm a fashion retard. I have no idea when it comes to good clothes. Basically I'm looking for some overall guidance in clothing selection for this coming fall semester of college. If you have been watching, then you've probably noticed that I've been buzzing around asking these atomic questions, but what I'm realizing is that I should just seek advice to get some general guidelines as to how to select clothes/fabrics/styles/etc.

    I'm putting together a complete wardrobe and would be delighted to get opinions/guidance/etc.

    t-shirts, jeans, sweaters, winter coat, shoes (dark color and light color), hoodies, track jackets, etc.. are the things I'm looking into purchasing very soon.

    I like loose-fitting jeans. I like t-shirts with sleeves that fall closer to the elbow than not.

    Stats:

    20.
    6'1"
    160lbs
    African american

    New York, USA

    Thanks!

    Like Get Smart said, find some outtits on others that you like. You could flip through GQ and Esquire and scan or just describe the stuff here, in addition to the sites GS suggested. You might also try men.style.com.

    wear clothes that fit! that is probably the number one thing i have learned at SF. know your measurements. yeah, each manufacturer sizes differently but you need a reference point.
