    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.

    West coast morning crue. Working this early Sunday morning should be a crime. Stupid annual reviews! I'll sneak away for a lunch thrift though.

    I care more about the commercials than the game this year.

    I'm visiting a friend for Super Bowl and I'm planning my thrift routes on the way

    #problem

    How do I get the confidence to wear loud patterns? I have a number of shirts that look great from Etro, Robert Graham etc but I feel like they should be framed and hung on the wall and feel so self conscious. Are loud patterns more for summer time?

    Example I bought this Zegna this week

    And finally to the gentleman above in the gorgeous 3 piece suit you look like a model lol :worship:

    It's best to keep everything else simple and limit it to 1 loud piece. It's important to feel comfortable/confident as you rock it.

    I felt it was easier by starting with smaller pieces..socks then shirt under sweater/jacket then pants etc.

    Mahatma and I make chicken wings and nachos every year, but seldom watch any of the game. Last year we did get lucky enough to see the Left Shark performance, and probably re-watched the whole ridiculous half time show at least 3 times in a row.

    Yes. Down from like a 43R/38 waist to a 40R/32 waist.

    Thanks for noticing!


    It's fun, but it's not the most important thing in my life.

    I do not post much (because I don't find much worthy of this thread) but I found this too crazy not to share.

    If it were me in your shoes, I would say "no" to the YSL and "hell no" to the CD. But, that's just me.

    What's wrong with YSL & Dior stuff? I'm not a fan of either myself, but just curious. Is it to do with quality issues?
