    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.

    Best cola bear fit! :slayer:





    SHORT BOOK TALK
    :


    Earlier, someone (Synthese?) asked how I could resist The Yellow Wallpaper. The short answer is it's too didactic. Too planned. Despite the intriguing premise (one I happen to love, hence the frustration) it seems to know right where it's going from the beginning. It has a social target in mind, and it hits it. Bluntly.

    I mean, I like Gilman, the author. She was ahead of her time in many ways; an economist, an intellectual, a rabble-rouser, a firebrand -- but not really an artist. Compared to say, Kate Chopin, her contemporary, it's easy to see why work like The Awakening is still everywhere, while The Yellow Wallpaper mostly rounds out nonfiction feminist anthologies.

    If you wanted to step outside the story itself and complicate things further, there is always the fact that Gilman was essentially a white supremacist, her lofty goals for women somehow never informing her views on racial equality. That bothers me.

    Kudos to AFL for absolutely nailing the best passage of the story, though. If the whole were written with that kind of verve and sophistication, I would love it despite its flaws.

    The epaulets pretty much look like fatigues, ogs? Not sure about slim cargo, it had just worked in the past. Sticking with what I know is why I look like someone who was passably cool 30 years ago, though.

    those sneakers fit you so much better than the MMM boots for some reason.

    thanks! they're definitely my most worn shoes. they were white and I gave them a coat of silver spray paint. I usually don't post fits in them because they're typically like the one I posted; boring

    The angle is better, the camera distance is better. If you want a lesson in distortion, here it is.

    very nice, SVB. i am wearing almost the exact same shoes. yours are a slightly different shade i believe, as they are from epaulet and were an exclusive run. i missed out on them and got the regular chestnut color.

    imo if you're going to wear an undershirt in a fit like that (and i always wear an undershirt) it's gotta be a v-neck so you can't actually see the shirt. the crew neck under button down thing doesn't look good.

    Thanks dude. I'm really glad I stumbled upon this shirt. :)

    I have to say I agree with mikey in principle re shirts and undershirts, but for some reason I don't mind it in your post. A v-neck would probably be better, but I think that the crew-neck looks alright. The glasses look really cool btw.


    Not sure if this is directed at me, but if so I agree that darker pants (black jeans or trousers) would produce a much nicer contrast. Nonetheless, I like this combination: it probably just needs to be beefed up with accessories. If I had a necklace, I'd wear the shirt open like a jacket (it is a fairly substantial-feeling fabric).

    Great stuff guys -- I like the invasion of more formalwear on SW&D.

    Is that line at the bottom a leather tab on the zipper pull or a cord going into the drawer behind?

    Good eye! A printer cord (happens to be the bane of my existence to boot).
