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,

    Fok on behalf of the entire Styleforum team

    Alright cool thanks. I figured as much, kopped. They still had the ridiculous price on them as well. Like $795 or something.

    Sadly not and I would have preferred that they be 12.5d. If I wore 9.5s or 10s I'd have a closet full of excellent shoes by now. My feet are apparently clownish in size.

    When you drive 30 miles to your favorite spot only to arrive as they lock the door for the night.

    This game breaks hearts.

    ^^ Similar situation happened to me last month. Got there only to see a sign on the door that said "Power Out. Store closed until further notice". :(

    ^ And you know the racks must have been stuffed with Savile Row suits and runway pieces never to kiss the palms of your sad sweaty hands.

    I salved my wounds with a gourmet burger and a big frosty Coke and hit the road again. Onward—Christian Dior and Sag Harbor await my arrival elsewhere.

    It would seem as though I found a doctors stash of old ties, these were mixed in amongst a bunch of other red whimsical ties of various makers.

    Heartbreaking story and a 'cool story bro' for most of you I guess.

    I found a ROCHAS amazing baby blue blazer, only to find out it was an orphan and I couldn't find the pants. Thing is ROCHAS is worth nothing on feebay but it's an almost centennial French fashion house (everybody know Eau de Rochas I'm sure). I would would have worn the shit out of this suit [​IMG][​IMG] Of course it fitted me -_-

    btw, BIGS UP to @horse's_ass for an amazing pair of Navy suede shoes that I received recently. Brand is unknown but whatever, it's sick as hell
