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.

    Notice I said SF-endorsed (i.e. MJK, W+H, Rag and Bone, Wolf and Sheep, Dog and Cat etc.,) instead of SF-approved (i.e. J. Crew, Lacoste).

    I guess I'm looking for APC equivalents of clothing outside of denim. There starts to be a focus on quality and cut but it is still at an affordable price point.

    The person who created the phrase SF approved should be gassed.

    Styleforum endorsed? Well, j approves thrift and Paul Smith. He hates all that expensive boutique stuff unless he gets it on sale or as a gift. Fashion leather that can't take actually protect you from a motorcycle accident really pisses him off. Seriously, you'll probably have better luck with me. I approve all sorts of stuff. List them and I'll put "Y" or "N" beside it.

    I would suggest you check out Banana Republic, it is definitely in the same league as the great SF endorsed brands such as Dog and Cat.

    Why doesn't anyone appreciate my dog and cat joke?

    If there is this hierarchical suit quality guide I don't see how this thread is any different.
