    I fucking love that about SF. Its not just fashion, but style in all aspects of life.

    Everyone needs a bit of fueding, and for me better here than in the real world.

    While I'm logged on I might get a little "Ohhhh Noooo He didn't!!", but once I step away from the keyboard, I dont even think of SF.

    you know, to be honest i wish it was the reverse for me.

    in real life i encounter the same setbacks and frustrations as many, but hardly on a scale of such volatility...then again i do my best to avoid confrontation and am generally a pleasant fellow offline (like DDML once said...forums bring out the worst in some of us). But sometimes I wish a motherfucker on the street would start some shit with me, just so it won't be as boring...

    What amazes me is that people still talk about the 30s like it was the golden age of tailoring. Even if the needlework isn't quite as good, things are way better now. Could you imagine having to walk around with an oilskin shitbag sewn into your trousers? Even if your valet washed it out for you, there is no way that is better than having a disposable ziplock.

    So vintage is not the way to go here?

    I think the worst of all worlds is to use a vintage ziplock bag, say from 1973. They just don't hold up very well and you are sure to spring leaks.

    Dewd, you live in HK. Just go down to Lan Kwai Fong and call a drunken Brit a tosser and you'll end up in some shit. Hell, he'll prob be so drunk that you can just roll him down the hill.

    Half-assed would describe 90% of my life, but thankfully, that hasn't been the case since I started here.

    Mine was an ill-worded attempt at humor. Sorry. [​IMG]

    At one point the second one got "juiced" and things were looking up for awhile.
    The soph bashing put an early end to things if I remember correctly.

    I wasn't anywhere near a clothing forum yet back then, but I have a feeling if I joined Styleforum back in around 2002 I woulda had a lot of fun. Just like how TFS was fun when I first found it in 2004, Sufu in 2005, etc. LabelKing has been around since then...man he's an old timer. and i vaguely remember hearing about Conne being involved in some drama that escalated out of SF into real life...when was this? Isn't he a freshman in college now? Man that must've been one helluva high school social life he was having...
    I was also on those sites in those years. I was a member of Superfuture back when most of the present members were probably still wearing FUBU jeans. I was on The Fashion Spot back when the member Kit was still alive. I also remember the Josh business at the ModernMan forum, and also the Airline Pilot situation at the old GQ forums. Banned from a few prominent style forums, and "timed-out" here a few times too--such is internet celebrity.

    And yet deep down we like you. Although the Raptor Room thing I don't get. You wish to have your way with dinosaurs?
