    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.

    from my understanding the low straights are SLIGHTLY bigger in the thigh and straight from knee down so leg opening again should be SLIGHTLY larger

    slim fits are supposed to be slim through the thighs and slim all the way through from seat to leg opening

    the difference between the two are there but probably not that noticeable. also i think the rise is diff on the two

    I'd imagine that when you get as small as a 28 the differences become less than they would be for larger sizes, as well.

    Anyone planning on attending the closing party "Inspiration" at the Melrose store Feb 8th? Apparently the Koji taco truck will be parked in the lot serving up some free dishes. I wish I could go.

    lol, didnt notice it until you mentioned it. these pics of olive green have me envious. the le olives denim fabric has a nice slubby quality to them, similar to my oxbloods however I cant fucking wear red jeans outside of my home

    I think we need straw hats. i dont like hats, i think they look silly but a large brim straw hat might be the only way

    Just get on with it and wear them out. If not send those bad boys my way, I'd rock them all the time with my Brixton straw hat..lol.

    BTW what happened to all the 10% off promo codes, I can't seem to find them anymore. I know RKD didn't pay retail for his latest haul.

    for the LE olives and the LE STF's i did pay retail. my size (28) and lots of tops are only available in very small quantities in size xs/small online and esp for LEs sometimes never make it to online so i have to contact SAs directly like dastig

    so for these types of items that i can wait for or i know will sell quickly, i pay retail. for most of the general stuff i want, but dont need to have, i wait for sales or would at least use the 10% bizrates
