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,

    Maybe I've been on the CM Thread for too long, but holy shit mostly everything is super trendy on this thread.

    Although I did see a pic of bradt in winter, I have to admit he looked like a cool anime character.

    what do you even mean by that? do you see most of the clothing you see in this thread on people in the street or at h&m and other fast fashion places? somehow....somehow I think your view is skewed

    p

    I don't, that's why its so shocking. Plus I spend more time on the CM thread.

    And also can you please elaborate? I think I have an idea of what you mean by skewed view but not completly. :)

    p.s I said mostly not all of the thread. Some stuff I actually like here.

    Well, fits definitely get less impressive as a whole when the weather heats up. The usual suspects have been putting up good fits. Also, I'm not sure what you mean by trendy. The pinnacle of trendy that I see daily "in the real world" is a J. Crew catalog. Maybe you live in a city where people regularly walk around in Ann D, Rick and Margiela, but that seems unlikely.

    You've been spending too much time in "timeless classic" land. A lot of the looks you think are trendy are probably pretty standard silhouettes and looks for their particular designers. You most likely won't see them trickle down to mainstream fashion.

    If you're after the GQ / J. Crew style, then you should probably look at the MC casual thread for poorly done/awkward renditions of that look.

    If you're after "timeless classics", then you should probably be looking at the MC WAYWT for linen and seersucker suits or something. That or looking up more old Steve McQueen vacation photos.

    So. Clothes that you haven't seen before = trendy. That makes sense. Go away.

    Ah yes, unlike a well-tailored suit. Meaning broad, reinforced shoulders and wider trousers a decade ago, or slim, flat front, with 3" lapels now. Or double-breasted and single pleats, in the 80's. But wait, they're timeless!


    All clothing, even Spoo's suits, will be dated in 20 years.

    Nothing is as timeless as looking like a cool anime character.

    My new goal in life is to look like one of the dudes from attack on titan.

    And by one of the dudes I mean the titans.

    persevering in trans-dimensional subconsciousness
    If I may interject...aside from the likely possibility that we are being trolled, maybe these lost stragglers that pay us visit from time to time are in desperate search of caressing hands, instead of assailing these dogmatic and binary views it would do better to embrace them in a loving cocoon of awesome flowering fabrics and tight leathers and gentle textures, an embodiment of everything.

    Else we behave no differently than the other side, we are no better than those savages with their absurd ideals pinned on a misconceived notion, 1950s prosperous white man being the pinnacle of all that ever was and will be.

    I'm totally obsessed with this series! I watched all 11 released episodes in one night.
