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.

    So much good stuff. Now can you create an algorithm with some sliders so I can dial in a "I'd like to dress like" fit and SF marketplace will fedex me a box of stuff to wear?

    I did do personal shopping once upon a time, and frankly, you'd probably be one of my less frustrating clients, since you have a good sense of what you like, and a good vocabulary for clothing (i.e. you don't need celebrity flashcards).

    @mementomoriarty thanks for taking the time to do this! what a great collection.

    styleforum should pay you an honorarium to put together one of these for each of the past 3-4 years (back to whenever thumbing started to be a thing). maybe even including 150 fits, since there have been some dope ones that didn't get the requisite number of thumbs. what do you think, @LA Guy?

    I would want guaranteed thumbs though. Maybe that's an add on...


    On a more serious note, just skimming the photos once through there are definitely a lot of commonalities to the fits. Some of that's because there are several posters who are represented several times. But of course themes also make sense because there are certain things we like right now, and we respond to those with thumbs.

    I'm going to have to look through again and see if I can decide what I think 2015 was the year of. Just for the sake of conversation.

    That would be up to our editorial department (i.e. @Synthese ) to determine what we can afford. but yes, it does seem like a good idea to me.

    Cheers,

    Quote:I would have to say that long coats were very popular, and that's at first glance. I even got and wore a few longer coats, something I've never done before 2013 or so,

    So...

    Tapered/skinny black pants, sneakers that look like they've been worn through a war zone, long outerwear, a tall T, and something drapey on your neck = SF thumbz.

    Very fall/winter biased.

    More posters posting fits in fall/winter?
    More members posting, so more thumbs in fall/winter?
    Summer fits are hard to make interesting?

    All three?

    So for those interested in the statistics breakdown of the top 100 it works out to be something like this:

    Winter (Jan, Feb, Dec) - 30%
    Spring (Mar, April, May) - 33%
    Summer (June, July, Aug) - 22%
    Fall (Sept, Oct, Nov) - 15%

    March had the highest number of top 100 fits
    While November had the lowest number of top 100 fits

    Ahh, but none of the top 10 are wearing sneakers! Also don't forget SW&D's general obsession with leather outerwear and all things patchwork.

    Interesting - I didn't get that impression from the 'seasonfulness' even taking into account antipodean posters. Fall's low showing surprises me.

    There is a high statistical correlation between covering your face and thumbs.
