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.

    Ten years ago, Styleforum was born.

    On the weekend of May 5, there will be party in San Francisco. A movable circus, so to speak.

    There will be festivities and activities the entire weekend, with a showing of O'Mast co-sponsored by The Armoury on the 4th, a vendor Showcase (a mashup between a pop-up shop and a trunk show) on the afternoon of the 5th, and a party in the evening. Of course, there will be drinks throughout the day, culmulating in food and drinks on the evening of the 5th.

    The itinerary is below.

    Schedule for the weekend of the Styleforum 10th Anniversary Party

    O'Mast 6:30-7:30 PM - Showing of O'Mast co-sponsored by The Armoury and W San Francisco, at the Industry Room of the W San Francisco.

    Whooo!

    Me too. It's gonna be a good time. The W is a great party spot (seriously!) and there'll be lots of good stuff to check out at the showcase.

    Plus, there might be a battle royale between the MC i-gents and the SW&D leather boyz.

    fwiw, one of the confirmed door prizes will be a pair of custom jeans from Jack/knife (see the Jack/knife thread for more info). John and I have already been talking about my pair.

    Truth be told, I'm a little afraid of getting my measurements taken right now. It bodes poorly. I mean, I wear anything from a size 31 to a size 33, but there is not way that I am anywhere close to a 31, or even a 33, where I wear my jeans (low on my hips.) I'm thinking 35-36". Last pair of jeans I got, Triple Works in size 33, are actually slack in the waist, and were not tight at all from day 1, and even after a wash, so, who knows.

    I like that his pocket square matches the bike handle.

    Wish I could go. I'm travelling to SF two weeks before this, so it's a shame.

    The solution is obvious - change your flights.

    Taylor Stitch - which makes some great jeans, ties, and RTW shirts in order to having a MTO shirting program, will be one fo the vendors at the Vendor Showcase.

    Jeans made using denim from some of the oldest Japanese and American mills cost $128 - a great everyday wear (and if people ask "where to kop jeans", this is a good place to start).

    They also sell throwing knives. Well, collar stays, but they are really throwing knives.

    Taylor Stitch looks pretty decent. Dig the denim selection but what's the word on having a leather patch rubbing against my tramp stamp on a daily basis?

    Just to update - On The Fly (www.onthefly.com) will be there, as a vendor, and as the hosts of after dinner drinks (great ports) at the Wingtip. Old schooooool.

    Oh, and maybe you guys will care, but Ryan and Yuki will be there at the events and at the vendor Showcase selling Yuketen goods! Maybe Monitaly as well. As you know, their footwear and bags are probably the best in class.

    That natural "English" bag should be there.

    Cheers,

    Fok.
