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,

    Fok on behalf of the entire Styleforum team

    Small shoulders + big waist stuff always makes me cringe.

    For what its worth, you will definitely fit into EG. I'm pretty sure we're the exact same measurements and I wear a large perfectly in all EG stuff, and I have fairly broad shoulders. The blousy midsection is part of the desired look, and all the people hating on it should really be looking elsewhere. My go to jacket is a wool bedford with collar popped, the peak lapels work perfectly for giving a very subtle popped collar looked that doesn't look forced (see below).

    Also, I think you will easily be able to transition into this type of wear. EG falls into this odd category that can be worn with a street edge or more with a focus in menswear type styling. I think the high street look is dope, and like you mentioned layering is usually stellar with EG. I'm at least interested to see how it'll work out for you though. If the sweater doesn't work, try something basic like a bedford or baker and go from there.

    The blousy midsection looks better on guys who can fill out the midsection (e.g. portly little japanese dudes)

    I think Synth has a more tapered built, it's going to look odd

    I disagree. I think the blousy midsection looks best on skinny guys with broad shoulders.

    Too gaudy and expensive for a strip of leather that's almost never seen; unless its got a giant fugly buckle

    The real thing, though I think it's actually ladies'. Old school.
