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.

    I'll talk about my Nokia C1 which is my current mobile phone. It replaced my earlier flip Nokia which was damaged beyond repairs and was discontinued few years ago by manufacturer.

    Each morning I wake up through its alarm function. I check what's the current time. The clock on the main display sometimes gets stuck but I press the middle button two or three times and it shows accurate time again. I also make phone calls, send and receive messages, and store my poetry as drafts in it. It is very lightweight and fits in my pocket nicely. I have smashed and dropped it on countless occasions on hard floors; the key pad, battery, back cover and screen get separated but quickly all go back to the original configuration. Sometimes I play with it's back cover, the soft rounded click in sound from its smooth and worn plastics while repeatedly snipping the cover in and out is relaxing and goes well with my day dreaming. The loudspeaker function is also useful, I make use of it during conference calls at my office and the voice quality and volume is satisfactory. It has acquired an overall silky texture and feels like a pet. Sometimes I take 480x600 resolution pictures from its built in camera

    It can be said that I am quite content with my Nokia C1

    I've never before posted on S&D and won't make a habit of it, but I had to chime in on this thread. That is one cool leather jacket. This is the only word I can come up with. Pretty damn cool.

    Thought I'd update on some stuff, some not particularly old but I expect to have these items for a long, long time

    [​IMG]

    Wool contrast/speckled knit, right up there with my Schneider in terms of "damn this is nice"

    [​IMG]

    Reduced sunglass collection to 3 (from 15) excuse goofy set-up, just for the pic
    Margiela Rimless
    Margiela Cable Temple
    Cutler & Gross 0425


    [​IMG]

    Took me a while to find the matching wallet, but since I am simple person, I travel with just just these (if only I could find side zips in this color)

    [​IMG]

    Just a unique card carrying case, starts conversations when you pull out a slim wood holder rather than a metal one

    [​IMG]

    Like I said before I love Virgin Island Water, but this cologne I've had since 2008 when it came out, only use it for special occasions

    [​IMG]

    Viscose Knit that I tracked down from Margiela after I hated myself for not purchasing it a while ago

    [​IMG]

    Mason Pearson, chlorine and salt water are not a friend to your hair pretty much carry it around all the time

    One of my most successful blind purchases this year, now I am trying to justify a leather one

    Those rimless glasses looked pretty terrible on you, and they were ridiculously crooked on your face too. Everything else is great though, Those cable temple are so nice.

    Lately I've been really stoked about a pair of jeans I got from bonobos, for no other reason then that they have absolutely perfect fit. They also happen to be just a tint blue than indigo which I like. It's really hard to say that spending more money could ever meaningfully improve upon the good feels I get when I wear those pants.

    (10)?

    It's a Tim O'Brien reference; not a bad idea...

    I don't get the hate here, other than, OMG it's GQ! :censored:

    ...unless you think a styleforum thread invented the Your One Essential.... format? :puzzled:
