    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.

    My name is Robert Forswythe Beck. I am forty-two years old, and I live with my sister Constance. I have often thought that with any luck at all I could have been born a werewolf, because the two middle fingers on both my hands are the same length, but I have had to be content with what I had. I dislike washing myself, ballin', swearin', obscenely large fonts, and noise. I like my sister Constance, True Religion jeans, and Amanita phalloides, the death-cup mushroom. Everyone else in my family is dead.

    What just happened?

    (FWIW, I read Boh's post as a critique of True Religion, not the person who found it. I think Versace is hideous -- YES, SPOO, I SAID HIDEOUS; FAR MORE HIDEOUS THAN MY STRIPES OUTFIT which I still like, for the record -- but I'm happy for every guy who finds it.)

    I didn't want to wade in to this earlier but GMMcL is right. No offense intended; it was simply a comment on the yarn stitching.

    This place is your typical male-dominated club. Continuous cycles of (gentle) ribbing, some offense taken. It's all about entry into the group/club and status. What happened was mild. Some people are more abrasive than others but if you've been lurking then you've probably seen some real viciousness, and not too long ago.

    Hehe post a brag pick of the Dior that you aren't looking for, then watch out under the bridges..

    But yeah, I peeked at a few other threads then retreated back to reading here. If nothing else, reading the old thread is at least 2-3 weeks worth of material. :)

    Yes does move fast, and I can vouch for a handful of regulars on here, they are more friendly, honest and giving then most people I know in person...and that's just a handful, while I knows many others who vouch for eachother regularly.

    Picked these Berluti's up for $3.95. Can anyone ID the model or anything? Or give me an idea on how much they'd be worth.

    So I was taking pics of this to ask what SHANG cloth was, when I realized that...
    This isn't an EZ coat, right? It's a S5A coat with EZ fabric. Plus it's an orphan.
    Sorry to bring up $ again, but is it worth the $2-300 NWT EZ SC's get on the bay or the $50 that S5A get's on the bay?

    "Even in?"

    In an 8" leg opening, mine look like stuffed Keilbasa.

    I respect the effort, dude, but I'm not feeling it. There's just too much going on, I think. And consider the source -- KING of "too much going on." I'm one of the few who thinks SOME stripes can be pulled off as separates, but only when the stripe is SUPER loud and bold. -- sort of like how glenplaid makes more sense as a separate the louder it gets. Keep in mind, I'm very much the minority even going that far.

    An even rarer feat is to pull off a patterned SC and patterned pants, in different patterns, without looking like you broke up two separate suits.

    Individually I like the tie and shirt. Problem is, they're both large grain. So they fight each other. What you want, usually, is a large pattern with a smaller pattern. As you add patterns beyond just two (one large, one small), you begin getting into a wrestling match among your patterns. That's what makes a 4 pattern fit so hard. Re-read TTO's rules for the challenge. He talks about the subtle ease with which Barbera pulls off his multi-pattern fits. That's the real gold.

    You're clearly picking better pieces, which is great. And your formal fit and the blazer fit before that were great. I think you got a little ambitious on this one, but I'm a huge advocate of putting yourself out there and learning as much from your misses as your hits. So keep at it.
