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,

    I am not sure why you feel the need to mention every time you don't get something (the simplest answer is you don't get it because you don't get it -- you simply don't have the experience or background to appreciate it) but I'm in a chatty mood so I'll try to explain what's good about this look as objectively as possible, from my point of view (obviously).


    • The scarf piece around the neck brings a sense of movement to the outfit even when it is stationary.
    • The stacked sleeves and stacked jeans echo each other. Also, the sleeve length elongates the visual line of the arm. This "elegantizes" it a bit.
    • The ribbed cuff extending to the knuckles adds a sense of casualness and comfort.
    • The color transition from beige to white to black is good.
    • As said numerous times already, the shoes are the only weak point.

    Maybe I'm missing something, but I don't know that there's a rule that you have to wear them differently than you would regular Nike dunks. Couldn't you take it in a Niketalk/Hypebeast direction instead of going all SZ about it?
    I like the jeans. What are?

    Also, I'm not sure you really need to hem them. I think the stacks looks nice, especially in that fit. Not so sure about the min-cuff in the second picture, though.

    That was my idea; I usually wear it with a black NYY fitted but it wasn't coming out good in the pictures so i cropped it out. What to do in terms of a top? Just plain tee or something more graphic and hypebeasty?

    Doesn't need to be Rick dunks, could be a multitude of other things, but I really hate how these look. Makes his ankles look busted.
