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,

    These down-the-front "thrift fits" look like a prelude to a full-on gonzo POV porno. I can't see how the shit fits and, frankly, I'm afraid to scroll down.

    With "Staple suits" pretty easy to get from thrifts or from members, i say you should go with the one that puts the biggest grin on your face. Purple suit with a fiendish Grin?? you'll wear it.
    - like a bawss. to carry well what you wear, you gotta like it. i would wear with Black cap toes, a candy stripe shirt, and a green tie/white square. now that's Bitchin'. [​IMG]

    OMG. I agree with this post more than any post before, or after this one. that's some insane clarity of thought.
    This thread has the best fits. period. #realwearfits.

    Try being a "Car guy".......... I just dropped 2k into a car i got for free!!!! it's badass though.. [​IMG]

    Made in / wash care tags would help with these. the Evisu look interesting, but something seems off. the lower pair are very nice.

    Beautiful! whether expensive or not. the writing looks like Hiragana. reading the font is hard. so you can decipher it yourself. [​IMG]

    worth keeping for checking tags in the future also.

    Edit: It's VERY unusual for Japanese to sign their name with anything other than "Kanji" which makes me think it would be an english speaking painter.

    Were those the Brioni's?

    The Evisu's tag looks really fake and cheaply made to me. But I don't know about Evisu that much since they are mass produced and mass faked.

    I had a pair of Academi jeans. They were crap. Made in India and the quality was very very very poor. On of the coin pocket rivet popped off. I sold them for $30. Not to get them confused with Akademiks which is a company founded by the same guys who made PRPS, Donwan Harrell. [​IMG]

    Damn, if these are fake then they have to be the best quality pair of faked Evisu I've seen...At the point, who cares if they are faked. On a side note, made in China? I've seen quality made in China selvedge Evisu (not numbered) at an Evisu store in Macao.

    If you really would like to know these are legit or not, you should post these on an Evisu authentication site just to be sure.

    PS. remember those weird looking Evisu #3 made in USA @SpooPoker posted a while back? He actually shipped those to Troika and we finally decided they were customized samples for local store owners. Hey Spoo, what did you ever do with those? [​IMG]

    Expect a fit tomorrow. My mystery boxes actually had a pair of Marc by Marc Wool/Lin Twills instead of the canterellis. I should be able to sneak the twills into work since they're not traditional "Jeans"

    Other than the two jeans posted above, found these two.
