    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.

    Thanks for the feedback. The pants are cotton/linen so I wanted to keep it vaguely lightish since the blazer is linen as well, but my pants game is definitely my weakest link.

    Yeah I figured the cuffing would be a failure especially with the overlong sleeves, but some cuffing is necessary since the pants are imo too cheap to hem. Would tailoring the blazer's sleeves work at all?

    Sadly I blew my monetary wad or I'd probably remedy the pants problem by way of Atelier's impending demise.

    As for pose, I'm definitely the sort of person that will purposefully stand too straight and too still to make others feel slightly uncomfortable ;p But maybe your slouchy feedback will work its way into my subconscious and I'll loosen up ;p

    I dig the blazer. Reminds me of something Damir would do, except the cut is actually good. Sleeves are slim enough that the longer length looks fine. Red tee also works really well with errything else. Pants aren't bad, but I agree with spope that they drape a little wonkily and the cuff is kinda clunky (though I have a feeling with a different angle and lighting situation they'd look cool and you'd get uber thumbs). I'd either stack em or go for some other tapered black trousers instead

    afixedpoint's fit might be the only time a waywt has ever benefitted from the low angle. Sick

    So, yesterday my girlfriend tells me that she has a surprise. Won't say anything else, just tells me to 'dress weird,' which I guess is how I look half the time anyway. So I show up, she starts driving us somewhere, and I have no idea where. Can't figure it - even when we end up at an event center I have no idea what we're doing...until I see hordes of people wearing NIN tees.

    So rad.

    Concert was awesome. I am not a concert goer (I've been to maybe three?), which made it really exciting for me, and I had an unbelievably good time. What I found most noticeable was how insanely friendly every single person we dealt with was, whether it was the staffers, the parking attendants, the firemen, or the crowd. Imagine the most stereotypical NIN fan you possibly can, and they were all there - but so were kids, grandmas, goth queens, hippies, and everyone else. Not a single person was anything other than unfailingly polite, and no one looked twice at anyone else, regardless of platform wedges, leather bodysuits, chained piercings...or giant white boots (unlike when you're, say, shopping in Anthropologie). What a great experience.

    They played a lot of great music. Explosions in the Sky opened, who I like, but it was the wrong crowd and the wrong venue, which was too bad. I don't think I could pick a favorite moment. At first I would have said "Terrible Lie," which they played early on, but then they played "Survivalism," which was absolutely perfect, and then they played "Wish" and everyone get to yell 'fist fuck' as loudly as possible. But I'm not sure that you can top thousands of voices, all crying out at once: "head like a hole!"

    By just reading the first lines and looking at the pic, I thought your girl had bought a couple of motorcycles for you two to go on a ride..

    I guarantee El Bert is the best dressed dude within a 50 mile radius of his mysterious coastal hideaway.

    Wrong thread. Your post in Ask a Question was sufficient. I can't believe I googled it, but it looks terrible. Like some bootleg Diamond Supply Co.

    In what way is it terrible though, is it the clothing or the website design?

    Funny thing is I didn't even know where I was going I took this road into the hills and I ended up turning around because I thought id end up on the other side of the Bay Area. Pretty sketchy narrow road that's travels right next to Tunitas creek.

    I want to do Synthese challenge.
