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,

    Clue me in on the Australian reference! Very lovely NY visit, actually. Went to the Armory for New York art week, felt appropriately dressed.

    His cuts are very slim, I think I'm gonna trade or put this one up on the bay. I'll post better photos when I return home this weekend.

    A few things from the past week or so. Haven't been getting out as much as I would like and I've definitely noticed an uptick in flippers in my city. They all use their phones without any shame. It's just like the world outside the thrift shop. Everyone is so busy looking down at their little screens that they are missing all the good stuff.

    Anyway, here are some things that I found:

    Some of that good vintage MIUSA Nike, Scorpions tour shirt, vintage NOS Fruit of the Loom (thread first?! Haha) thermal for work, and an unknown vintage crew neck that I think is loopwheel construction. Pretty cool and super soft

    Patagonia Regulator fleece and 90's Snap T

    Bright AF vintage Tommy crew with letterman style chenille patch

    And rounding it out, an Orvis two'fer. Old man knit cardigan and a very minty MA-1 style suede jacket. Really sad the sleeves are too short for me, otherwise I'd be keeping

    I'm still trying to educate myself of the construction, so feel free to drop some knowledge on the subject. No side seams at all on this guy.

    @Dirt thanks for the pics!

    so a few months ago i finally gave in and hunted down a 30s fleece garment that i didn't have to pay through the nose for (it was a union suit lol). they only had the loopwheelers back then and yes the fabric is really different than modern sweatshirt fleece. if you really want to nerd out i suggest an old fashioned pm hootenanny. i have a couple of other garments that i suspect are loop wheel, one is newer and japanese the other is old. i also have one of the nike x loopwheeler hoodies. they are all very different fabrics from each other.

    imo if it's got a really soft pile and doesn't seem like terry then you could well be right.

    there is so much utter fucking bullshit among the hypebeasts on what loopwheel really means. it's one of those topics where the internet just breaks down and don't work for info. i was truly astonished at how meaningless most of it is and that was maybe the hardest time i've ever had parsing that kind of research online before ("why loopwheel?"). but it is an interesting machine and can yield a very good product.

    ***

    quick brag i just grailed out on an old Champion tri-blend reverse weave hoodie. worthless but for personal and one of the best most underrated products ever made.

    Factoid: Robert Stock joined with Ralph Lauren to create the Chaps line.
    Fun question: What beloved Style Forum designer name did Robert Stock create around 2001?
