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,

    This is, by far, the most rapist-y picture posted in the thread.

    I felt like I was picking up a disorder today reading softy's posts about how crewnecks feel like they're strangling him.
    i feel this way all the time now, even wearing a button down shirt to the office is becoming a chore

    First of all, epic thread. I feel jealous that I didn't make it myself.
    Second of all, mind-blowing transfos.
    Third, I prefer Fuji in the former; he has an insouciant joie de vivre and looks like he does something creative/design-oriented, perhaps a job involving whiteboards and oversized teak tables with maquettes, Staedtler pencils, and some bonsai decorations scattered pleasantly about. Never been into the crack-cocaine look, but if that satisfies the "I heart grungy party lifestyle" leanings of most SWD posters, so be it.

    Screw it, I haven't posted pics in a while but why not.

    I love the look of pure balling decadence going on in the last pic, jaunty eyebrow and the fact that you heedlessly cropped out the women partially, suggesting that you now have so many at your beck and call that you don't even need to include them to show off. They're just like background noise.

    Synthese knows. I'll wear a v-neck, though, FWIW. Something inexpressibly unpleasant/corny about crewnecks, some kind of milquetoast APC style. Worn with nothing underneath, they look bizarre, which is not the case for naked v-necks, so they demand a shirt or something beneath, which looks similarly horrid. Skip dat shit, go for belted cardigans instead.

    Also I breezed past the middle two pages because Itchy & Scratchy (AR_six & Moo) wouldn't stfu, but seriously guys chillax pls.

    lol at this tool. you don't have to suck up for approval from strangers on the internet. in fact you dont have to do it for people in real life. and seriously what the fuck is an opinion or even an education except a collective of other people's opinions, your analysis on them, and occasionally original material? what, is everybody supposed to reinvent calculus on their own?
    [​IMG] You're clearly salty so I won't speak too much on this, but if you solely depend on others for your own style than that's quite pathetic. Your style should develop organically on your own, and opinions from a minority on the internet isn't the end all be all; Although I'll admit its quite beneficial if you're clueless. Don't even see what's wrong with what I said, this thread is pretty cool cuz it shows how peoples style developed. Everything starts out shitty, and gets better because you need experience. You just compared putting on clothes to mathematics, you're clearly the idiot here. There isn't a formula which will magically transform you into a well-dressed person. It's pretty much a introspective process since you must realize what feels right to you, and what you can see yourself wearing. If you simply buy into peoples opinions you might feel uncomfortable, and it won't be right. It's all a process you must venture on your own.

    This is the first fit I ever posted here: [​IMG] Surprisingly, I did not get any hate, just simple advice. From late '08 or early '09.

    I don't really check out the pics much on this side of the pond so maybe I'm missing something here, but all of the "after" shots look essentially the same. Went from college-y looking fraternity kid to grunge-y looking skinny jeans, jacket, and fucked hairdo. Is that the forum standard?

    Yes.

    MC dudes. Listen up. SWD is full of grungy homeless-looking skinny-jean-wearing eraserhead hairdo assholes. Have you guys not figured it out yet?

    As much as I hate to say it like this, but it's fucking hard to explain why something like that looks good to people who don't "understand" it. Blahblahblah everything is subjective, but the majority of people on SWD side praise the after pics a lot. It's very nuanced and it's like trying to explain to someone why Seinfeld is a good show.

    This should replace "Discussions of Men's Modern and Designer casual style, denim, sneakers, expensive hoodies, and obscure high-end Japanese trends you're not cool enough for." as the SW&D subheader.

    I feel like I'm in the Hermes thread again.

    Andrew, you're the exception, but I agree with Rambo.

    FWIW, you look exactly like every high school teacher I ever hated.

    Seriously, 4 people are wearing leather jackets. As opposed to...a thousand faceless zealots in sprezz'd out sportcoats?
